The company behind the hugely popular video game series Batman: The Telltale Series has announced the details of a new digital first comic series entitled Batman: Sins of The Father, which will add new plot points to this ever growing series.
Written by Christos Gage (Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Angel and Faith, Netflix’s Marvel’s Daredevil) and art provided by Marvel artist Raffael Ienco (Black Knight, Fantastic Four), Sins bridges the gap between the first two chapters of this unique take on the early stage of Batman’s career.
The new creative team are very enthusiastic about their upcoming project. Gage acknowledges his love for the series’ willingness to take risks, such as the choice of revealing Dr. Thomas Wayne’s criminal connections to Carmine Falcone and insidious experiments at Arkham Asylum.
“I’m excited to contribute to this world and I can’t wait for fans to see Raffaele bring the story to life. He is a great match to the visual style of the game, while adding his uique, hard-hitting take to it.”
Ienco, meanwhile, confesses:
“I’m thrilled to be making my DC debut drawing such a high-profile character like Batman, as we as working alongside the fantastic Christos Gage and our editor, Jim Chadwick. I can’t wait to share what Gage and I have cooked up for the fans of the series.”
In the aftermath of the first chapter – which also saw the rise of The Penguin and Two-Face – Bruce Wayne has labored hard in the public sector to restore the reputation of both Wayne Enterprises and his late parents. As Batman, he’s struggling to build a working relationship with the GCPD to better affect his war on crime. However, he finds both worlds bleeding into one another once more as a mysterious assassin begins murdering those associated with the experiments at Arkham Asylum. With possible lawsuits filed against Wayne Enterprises on behalf of the victims’ families, Bruce will begin his own investigation into the suspect while simultaneously directing the bullseye towards himself the deeper he goes.
Batman: Sins of The Father will debut online February 12, while #1 of the print issues will hit the stands February 21st.
