(Bat)man’s best friend, Ace the Bat-Hound, gets his very own story in January’s Batman: Urban Legends #11.
The upcoming 11th issue of DC Comics’ Batman: Urban Legends anthology series promises, among other things, a story starring none other the Dark Knight’s trusty canine companion, Ace the Bat-Hound.
Batman: Urban Legends #11 is slated to hit comic shops on Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2022. The issue’s official solicitation text teases three stories: “Batman & Zatanna,” “Hounded” and “Wight Witch.” The issue features a main cover by Jorge Molina, as well as variants by Karl Mostert and Arist Deyn.
Composed by Vita Ayala and represented by Nikola Čižmešija, “Batman and Zatanna” is “a story that will change Batman and Zatanna’s relationship until the end of time. Consistently the two need to meet up to overcome an insidious revile. This year they fall flat, and the world is in risk as a result of it.”
In the mean time, “Harassed” comes from the group of essayist Mark Russell and craftsman Mostert. “Pro the Bat-Hound, the goodest kid in the DCU, has his day in a legendary tale including numerous DC Super Pets,” DC clarifies.
Finally, “Wight Witch” serves as both a Catwoman tie-in and a follow-up to the “Fear State” event. DC promises that the story will reveal the mysterious relationship between Ghost-Maker and Wight Witch in “all its horrifying glory.”
