The Rebirth series has well and truly kicked off, and now DC has announced that the first crossover is coming in the form of six-part story that will be spread across BATMAN, NIGHTWING, and DETECTIVE COMICS.
The first crossover is centred within Gotham City which is the battle arena where proceedings will kick off. “Night of the Monster Men” will hit the BATMAN, NIGHTWING and DETECTIVE COMICS issues and go on sale late September and early October.
This story will take the almighty heroes of Gotham and place them against a mystery villain from the Dark Knight’s past!
