DC Rebirth has been a hit, and as such, DC Comics has been working hard to keep up the momentum as well as make sure readers remain interested in the mystery that lies at the center of this rebirth. For Batman, he’s been at the heart of the mystery with the discovery of The Comedian’s Button in the Batcave. But now, he’s got a whole new set of problems in the form of “Dark Days”. This event, which is set to arrive in July will show a darkness that lies in the DC Universe, and it’ll bring together the legendary team of writers who have been penning Batman and his allies for the past many years including Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV.
“Dark Days posits a mystery that traces all the way back to when I started on Batman,” said Snyder in DC’s press release. “I’ve hinted at them over the years with Easter eggs and clues. This is a mystery that literally begins at the dawn of man and spans generations of heroes and villains and ultimately leads to huge revelations about the past, present and future of the cosmology of DC. I couldn’t be more excited for Dark Days. It’s the prelude to the event we’ve been developing for years.”
“We’re taking all the ethos and excitement of the work Scott and I have been doing in the Batman titles and unleashing it across the entire DC Universe,” said Tynion IV. “The size and scope of what we’re looking to do with Dark Days could only be accomplished by the best of the best. Andy, Jim and John are legends. All of us on this project are pushing one another, and every concept, to the extreme.”
