DC Announces Scott Snyder on Batman: Gates of Gotham


DC Comics has announced that this May, New York Times best-selling writer Scott Snyder collaborates with acclaimed writer Kyle Higgins and artist Trevor McCarthy for Batman: Gates of Gotham, a six-part miniseries exploring historic Gotham City and its many dark secrets.

I really like Scott Snyder’s work on American Vampire and Detective Comics, so I’ll definitely be picking this series up!

Check out the solicitation, and the cover to the first issue:

When a mystery as old as Gotham City itself surfaces, Batman assembles a team of his greatest detectives – including Red Robin, Owlman, I-Ching and others – to investigate this startling new enigma. As clues are discovered and the mystery deepens, Batman’s team soon finds itself on a journey that explores different eras in Gotham’s history and touches upon notable Gotham families including the Waynes, Kanes, and Elliotts.

This miniseries spins out of recent events in the Batman titles and sets the stage for several exciting storylines in 2011. Additionally, this limited series touches upon mysterious story elements introduced in Grant Morrison’s RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE. Featuring many exciting Batman Family guest stars!

BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM bridges Gotham City’s past to the overall future of BATMAN. Pick up issue #1, on sale May 25.
