DC Announces 'Batman: Zero Year' by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, the guys behind Court of Owls and Death of the Family, are reteaming a new Batman story. Titled Zero Year, the 11 issue arc will begin in June's Batman #21.
Speaking with the AP, Snyder stated:
"It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin.’ It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in the New 52. We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact. It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain … It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in The New 52. It builds up the mythology."
Sounds like an interesting way to get old fans interested in the New 52. There aren't any other details on it at the moment, but I'm sure we'll hear more as we approach the June release date.
