Batman will be “Killing Time” in a new comic series from Tom King and David Marquez

For the past several years, Tom King has been writing Batman in one way or the other, be it the main title, miniseries, or one-shots featuring Elmer Fudd that stand up as some of the finest Batman content the world has to offer, full stop.  King’s presence in the Batman world will continue in 2022, as a new six-issue miniseries titled Batman: Killing Time has been announced.

And in King’s own words, it has nothing to do with anything else he’s done with the character.

A heist, you say?  I am so in.

Oh, and David” Let Him Draw Everything” Marquez and Alejandro “Let Him Color Everything” Sánchez are involved too?  Yeah, I’m in even more.

Seriously, this sounds like an absolute blast, so check out the details and a gallery with some early looks at the interiors and variant covers below.
