When Batman Incorporated ended before DC's 'The New 52,' many of us were left wondering what the story was with Leviathan. The story had been building up but the only information we had was Batman Incorporated would return sometime in 2012. Word slowly got out that a one-shot was being planned to tie up the Leviathan story. DC has just announced we can expect BATMAN INCORPORATED: LEVIATHAN STRIKES on December 21!
Leviathan Strikes will be a giant-sized one-shot where Batman discovers there is more to this deadly foe than meets the eye. Will we finally discover the secret? Check out the cover by Chris Burnham posted on DC's The Source.
