Azrael’s History

This week a new series launches, focusing on a new Batman-related character (there’s a lot of them running around Gotham these days). Azrael is written by Fabian Nicieza and is pencilled by Ramon Bachs and focuses on the character of the same name. However, this isn’t the Jean Paul Valley creation, that replaced Bruce Wayne way before Dick Grayson did, in those heady days of the 1990s. This is a new Azrael, with a new costume, and secret Order. Up at Broken Frontier now is my best attempt to explain the past of this interesting DC character, just in time for the new guy under the mask.
