Batman: Earth One Being Released This July
Here is a book that I have been looking forward to since it's commission was announced a few years ago. Based in the same universe as the critically acclaimed Superman: Earth One by J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis. Batman: Earth One is written by one of my favorites Geoff Johns and drawn by another of my favorites Gary Frank.
Here is the press release taken from the web page DC Comics The Source
