Knight And Squire #1 Preview

Bruce Wayne is coming back from the time lost grave soon, and it appears as though the original Robin Dick Grayson will continue to be Batman, as will Bruce. So Gotham will have 2 Batmen running around? Well, kinda. Bruce, in his slightly new duds, will be starring in 2 new ongoing series come November (David Finch’s Batman: The Dark Knight and Batman, Inc with its rotating guest stars by Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette) and on October 13 the English version of Batman and Robin will have their own 6 ish mini. Knight and Squire is written by Paul Cornell with art by Jimmy Broxton. Preview of the debut issue below. Yep, it looks like very English and very fun.

Written by PAUL CORNELL; Art by JIMMY BROXTON; Cover by YANICK PAQUETTE; 1:10 Variant cover by BILLY TUCCI

Just as Gotham City has Batman and Robin, London has Knight and Squire – the British heroes and frequent allies of The Dark Knight! In a secret bar within the city where peace is kept magically, heroes and villains gather to enjoy a pint and talk about their day. But what happens when the magical barriers that disallow fighting are dropped and a building full of heroes and villains confront each other all at once? Knight and Squire have to keep the peace and save both friend and foe in this 6-issue miniseries from hot writer Paul Cornell (ACTION COMICS, Captain Britain and MI:13) and up-and-coming artist Jimmy Broxton (THE UNWRITTEN).
