IDW Publishing and DC Comics are continuing their collaborations and this time it'll be The Maxx crossing over with Batman. The Maxx creator Sam Kieth is returning as writer and artist for the five issue mini-series.
"Doing a Batman and Maxx crossover is like a family reunion with my favorite brother and our really cool cousin," says Sam Kieth. "You never want it to end... or at least I hope you won't!"
The crossover sees The Maxx as Arkham Asylum's newest inmate.
When a devious new doctor at Arkham Asylum conducts unconventional forays into the human psyche, he kicks off a disastrous chain reaction by experimenting on Arkham's newest patient: The Maxx! The city of Gotham soon begins to merge with the Outback, The Maxx's psychedelic mental landscape. It's up to Batman to save Gotham and all of reality... but only by joining The Maxx on a trip into the darkest depths imaginable: the twisted minds of Batman's greatest enemies!
The first issue of Batman/The Maxx: Arkham Dreams is set to release this September with covers by Sam Kieth and Jim Lee.
