DC Comics has announced their first REBIRTH crossover event, “Night of the Monster Men.” It will be a six-part crossover across the pages of Batman, Nightwing, and Detective Comics.
In “Night of the Monster Men,” Gotham City will be the battleground as the heroes of Gotham fight against a mystery-shrouded foe from the Dark Knight’s past.
The crossover event kicks off on September 21st with Batman #7 co-written by Steve Orlando and Tom King with art by Riley Rossmo.
As a huge storm approaches, Batman, Batwoman and Nightwing try and prepare Gotham City for the worst, but nothing can prepare the heroes for the enormous monsters rampaging through the streets! Batman will need all of his allies to unite in order to stop these mad science monsters from tearing Gotham apart!
On the same day, the story continues with Nightwing #5 co-written by Steve Orlando and Tim Seeley with art by Roge Antonio.
The Monster Men are stomping their way through Gotham City! How can the Bat-team take on both these monsters and the storm of the century? And when Nightwing goes behind the scenes to discover where these monsters originated, what he finds lurking in the shadows might be worse than the monsters themselves!
One week later on September 28th, Detective Comics #941 will begin the third part of the story co-written by Steve Orlando and James Tynion IV with art by Andy MacDonald.
Batman and Batwoman take to the streets in a motorcycle death race against a monster that transforms faster than either of them can keep up! And at Blackgate Prison, something truly terrifying is growing in the prison’s darkest depths… and its eggs are hatching!
Parts four through six will conclude the storyline in the pages of Batman #8, Nightwing #6, and Detective Comics #942 which will be solicited next month.
