Exclusive Preview: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #74

Is there a new serial killer in Gotham City? Batman's on the case in this new story arc.

If you've been enjoying the weekly Batman Digital First comics, it's moving from Thursdays to Tuesdays. That means you'll get a brand new chapter earlier in the week.

For this week, it's the beginning of the a new arc written by Doug Wagner with art by Matthew Dow Smith.

Chapter 74

“Ashes to Ashes” part 1 of 3! A serial killer is targeting random citizens of Gotham for a fiery death. But when Jim Gordon seeks the Batman’s help in stopping this crime spree, the Dark Knight detects a pattern the police didn’t.

This looks promising. I might have to start reading this now. As if I didn't have enough comics to read...

Anyone any thoughts on this series?

Well it's hard to really say anything about it other than it's nice to follow since you always get one completely different kind of story after the other. Every couple of issues has a new creative team, so some are bad, and some are very good.

I enjoy the series for the most part, though I haven't read all issues. The nice thing about it is they're self-contained stories that don't rely on you following for months and months. As has been mentioned, because the creative teams change every issue or couple issues, you get a nice variety, and it's nice to see creators get to write/draw the Bat that wouldn't otherwise be doing so.

I'd recommend grabbing a few of them if you see any creators whose work you already like and go from there. I particularly enjoyed the very first issue with art by Jeff Lemire and the story by Damon Lindelof.
