After establishing his New 52 origins in Batman: Zero Year, writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo bring Batman fans arguably the biggest and most epic story yet this coming October, Batman: Endgame, where the Caped Crusader makes his return to present day.
The next [arc] is only six issues, so it’s not a year-long, it’s not ‘Zero Year’ at all, but it’s definitely our most muscular, crazy colorful [arc] so far. In that way, this was a chance to take a breather. It does hint at stuff in ‘Arkham Manor’ and it catches you up, basically, on all the things that have happened between ‘Eternal’ to now. So if you need a primer on continuity — where Catwoman is, what happened to Batgirl, what’s going on with Jim Gordon — all that kind of stuff is going to be in this issue. It will remind you of continuity as it stands right now in the Batman world.
