Batman: Death and the City
Out this week: BATMAN: DEATH AND THE CITY, a collection of stories from Detective Comics. Includes the two-part story "SIEGE" by me and Andy Clarke, in which a mad bomber decides to bring down Wayne Tower. Robin must try to stop the bomber from the lower floors, while Bruce Wayne is trapped upstairs, unable to change to Batman, with a group of peace conference delegates.
This story was a lot of fun and Andy drew the hell out of it. You can see his Robin up above -- as good a shot as I've ever seen of that character. He didn't get to draw Batman until late in the story, but it was worth the wait.
The book also features several other stories written by Paul Dini and Royal McGraw, and drawn by Don Kramer and Wayne Faucher. $14.99 from DC Comics.
In other news, I promise a blog post soon that ISN'T just blatant self-promotion. Been busy!
