Superstar writer Jason Aaron, and Kansas City native, returns to DC to deliver his first Batman story ever, partnered with blockbuster artist Doug Mahnke for a unique, brutal tale!
Batman: Off-World, a six-issue limited series that pairs Aaron with artist Doug Mahnke (Detective Comics, Green Lantern) and inker Jamie Mendoza. As the title suggests, Off-World drags Batman away from Earth and on a rare solo mission to an alien world. Check out these exclusive preview pages from DC Comics.
"A routine night in Gotham City for a young Batman proves to be anything but routine when the crime-fighter is confronted with a sort of foe he's never faced before—one from beyond the stars! A universe of possible alien threats leads Batman to make a daring decision--to venture alone into the far reaches of the cosmos for the very first time, where the Dark Knight will face the fight of his life!"
“I fell in love with comics because of DC," Aaron told IGN. "The first books my young, beardless self ever plucked from a grocery store spinner rack were the New Teen Titans and World's Finest and Batman. Books that opened the door to a universe of stories that would quite literally change the course of my life. So it is with great honor and excitement that at long last I get to make my proper debut as a DC writer, with a Batman story that takes a young Dark Knight on his own first journey into the far, wondrous reaches of the DC cosmos.”
Batman: Off-World #1 is the can’t-miss start of a six-issue series detailing a thrilling, previously untold epic from Batman’s formative days as a hero!
For those looking for more Jason Aaron in the DC Universe, he’ll team with artist John Timms on Action Comics starting with January’s #1064—the first phase of the year-long “Superman Superstars” initiative!
