Couple of surprises in June's solicits for Batman: Eternal. Jason Bard is back, so is Mr. Unknown (albeit, Hong Kong doesn't equal Japan, but we'll see) and both Ian Bertram and Mikel Janin join the art team, while Guillem March takes care of the art duties for the first two issues of the month. Janin needs no introduction after his lengthy run on Justice League Dark, but you might need a refresher for Bertram, who is the artist that illustrated Peter Tomasi's story in Detective Comics #27, where everyone was celebrating Bruce's birthday.
Here's the story text for issues #9-12:
- As the weekly Batman epic continues, the questions continue to mount. In this issue, find out why Batman is in Hong Kong teaming up with Mr. Unknown!
- Batman and Catwoman – together again! Professor Pyg is back! And we get some answers about Falcone’s past, and his motivations!
- The trial of Jim Gordon begins!
- Jason Bard makes his big play to end the gang war once and for all. And Jim Gordon’s trial becomes a family affair!
