BURBANK, CA – July 29, 2021 – This December, three-time New York Times best-selling artist Jock (The Batman Who Laughs, Batman: The Black Mirror) brings his signature style to the blacked-out streets of Gotham City in Batman: One Dark Knight, a three-issue, prestige format mini-series from DC Black Label. Written and drawn by Jock, the miniseries will debut in print and on participating digital platforms on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.

“I think most readers know how much I love drawing Batman, so I was thrilled by the prospect of marrying the visual take with my own storyline for Batman: One Dark Knight,” said Jock. “I wanted to tell a propulsive, tight action tale, set over one typical night in Gotham City; except when a blackout strikes it’s a night that goes very, very wrong for Batman. I can’t wait to share more with everyone soon!”

When a simple GCPD escort goes sideways, Batman finds himself on the wrong end of Gotham City in the middle of a heatwave with a supervillain in tow. Follow Batman as he traverses block by block across a pitch dark Gotham City while dragging a highly difficult E.M.P. to his permanent home at Blackgate Prison. The dark corners of Gotham City contain many surprises…and E.M.P. plans to deliver many more shocks before the night is through!
