COMICS: DC Announces BATMAN 'The Zero Year' From Scott Snyder This June
It's not a new comic book as it unfolds in the pages of Batman, it's the next event following the Night of the Owls and Death of the Family. Snyder's playing the long term end-game with this one as it will last a year.
We don't have any preview art or specific details from Scott Snyder, just that he's telling an 11-issue story arc that dives into the early years of Batman's career. Greg Capullo will be providing the art as per the norm. Snyder doesn't say who the villain will be in the interview with the AP, but he's previously stated that the next villain to step into the spotlight after the Joker and Death of the Family will be the Riddler. The New 52 timeline of Batman has been a bit murky to say the least so it will be interesting to see whether Snyder confronts that head-on or opts to sidestep. The writer also made it clear that he's not looking to pick apart anything Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli did with Batman Year One. The series will begin June 2013.
“It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin'. It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in the New 52. We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact. It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain. It builds up the mythology."
This appears to be our first glimpse of promotional art for the ambitious story arc. Also, the original article has been changed to clarify that the title is 'The Zero Year' not 'The Year Zero' as the Washington Post originally reported. As always, more details as we have them.
