Meet the Nu52 Scarecrow

After giving us a new look at the Penguin in "Penguin: Pain and Prejudice", Gregg Hurwitz teams up with artist David Finch to now take on the Scarecrow in this week's "Batman: The Dark Knight" #10

Hurwitz is promising that this arc will be thrilling and action-filled. as well as intensely psychological. The psychology aspect of Batman has been explored in the past but Hurwitz hopes to take a different slant by exploring Batman's motivations and fears and comparing those to the same aspects of Scarecrow and what drove Scarecrow to become the person he is today. His professional training as a Psychologist will come into play as Scarecrow attempts to delve into and analyze the inner workings of Batman and how the Dark Knight himself uses fear as a weapon. The Scarecrow will also have a new and interesting weapon that we'll get to see in play almost immediately.

Scarecrow and Batman will be viewed as actually having more in common than Bruce has with most of his other rogues, almost like 2 sides of the same coin. This "dark reflection" is the basis for the cover to issue #10. 

Hurwitz also gives artist David Finch plenty of room to demonstrate his strong pencilling and promises us some of Finch's best work to date. 

Batman: The Dark Knight #10 goes on sale this Wednesday, June 27, and according to the DC Comics solicitation "this isn't about's about TERROR!"

About the Author - IvCNuB4

IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
