Monday's Headlines | Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Series Returns in May

 

DC's iconic anthology title Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight returns in April, this time as a digital-first title, further adding to what the publisher called the "robust" expansion of the line. 

Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight is the second new high-profile digital-first title DC has announced this week along with a Justice League murder mystery Last Ride. 

Weekly digital chapters of the new series will begin Friday, April 2, and print versions will debut on Tuesday, May 18.

Originally debuting in 1989 during the rapid expansion of the comic book Direct Market in what is colloquially known as the 'speculation-era,' Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (or LotDK for short) was an anthology that recruited a who's who of Batman creators of the era, including Denny O’Neil, Grant Morrison, Ed Hannigan, Mike W. Barr, Doug Moench, José Luis Garcia-López, Klaus Janson, and others.
