Batman: Black & White Returns In December

Batman: Black and White, the DC anthology series that dates back over two decades returns in December as a six-issue, 48-page prestige format limited series featuring "a new generation of noirish takes featuring Gotham's Guardian".

"In 1996, DC bolstered the already fabled legacy of Batman when the publisher introduced the anthology series Batman: Black and White," reads DC's announcement of the new series. "An incomparable collection of writers and artists collaborated on original, black and white short stories featuring the Dark Knight in multiple interpretations, all varying in terms of theme, tone and setting, yet all connected with a distinctive black and white color scheme."

On December 8 the series returns with a new slate of stories by "comics’ most exciting and innovative storytellers to explore the Batman mythos in stark black and white!"
