The Dark Knight’s world is shattered. A twisting and turning tale, Batman: Last Knight on Earth could be the final Snyder/Capullo team-up.
If you’ve been reading Batman: Last Knight on Earth, then you already know all about what might be one of Batman’s strangest tales. The capper (for now anyway) to writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo’s legendary Batman run, Last Knight on Earth is a conclusion of sorts. It’s also one of the most celebrated standalone books in DC’s Black Label line.
Twenty years in the future, Bruce Wayne wakes up in Arkham Asylum. Young. Sane. And…he’s never been Batman. So begins this sprawling tale of the Dark Knight as he embarks on a quest through a devastated DC landscape, featuring a massive cast of familiar faces from the DC Universe. As Batman tries to piece together the mystery of his past, he must unravel the cause of this terrible future and track down the unspeakable force that destroyed the world as he knew it…DC Comics
