Hoping to copy Marvel's strategy of double and triple shipping their top sellers, DC revealed that it would be publishing four issues of Batman: The Dark Knight in September, each of which focusing on a different villain.Batman: The Dark Knight #23.1 will focus on the Ventriloquist, Batman: The Dark Knight #23.2 will feature Mr Freeze, Detective Comics #23.3 will star Clayface and Detective Comics #23.4 will center on the Joker's Daughter. Each book will have a different creative team, with Gail Simone, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, John Layman, and Ann Nocenti writing one issue a piece.
While we don't know what the covers look like, Jason Fabok has drawn the Joker's Daughter cover, so we're betting that Batman is chained up in the background.
For those keeping track, we're up to 12 Batbooks, with secondary titles still yet to be revealed.
