Batman 125Batman 125 kicks off a dark new era with writer CHIP ZDARSKY joining the creative team alongside artist Jorge Jimenez & colorist Tomeu Morey!!

Third Eye Faithful, exciting things are happening in the world of Batman right now! This July, superstar writer CHIP ZDARSKY is joining the Batman creative team and says he's "in for the long haul"! And with this change of writers comes a new logo and fresh new start for the Dark Knight. Batman125 will be an oversized issue that drops on July 5th and begins the first part of the new story arc "Failsafe", featuring the FIRST APPEARANCE of a new villain and new challenges for the Caped Crusader! 

This new story arc sees Bruce Wayne at a turning point, being faced with a new villain FAILSAFE who Zdarsky says "is his Doomsday". So who is this powerful new villain and what does this mean for Batman stories going forward? Introducing such a powerful new character to a long standing history is really something only Zdasrky could pull off especially in what he describes as a dark, gritty and more intense take on Batman. And Jimenez's art really carries this feeling throughout the pages too, taking a darker approach compared to his previous work on Tynion's Batman run.

What's the Scoop on Batman #125?

Superstar writer Chip Zdarsky joins legendary artist Jorge Jimenez to define a new era in Batman! Bruce Wayne is at a turning point, haunted by dreams of a dark future, while Gotham City billionaires are being gruesomely murdered. With the discovery of an archenemy's involvement and a tragedy unfolding, the Dark Knight's nightmares are just beginning. Failsafe starts here. And in the backup, there's chaos in Gotham as the underworld fights over one of its crown jewels...and Selina Kyle is caught in the middle. Can she stop the bloodshed and maybe even make a little money in the process?

Chip Zdarsky's new run will also see a long disregarded but fan favorite character, TIM DRAKE return to the role of Robin! And he'll be rocking a new suit as he once again fights along side the Caped Crusader as the dynamic duo! DC has also teased the return of some favorites from Batman's rogue gallery that will play a big part in the story like Penguin and Clayface! 

Zdarsky has been quiet about what's to come in this new run, wanting readers to enjoy everything as it comes, but it's hard not to get excited and speculate over a new villain that is powerful enough to compare to Doomsday! Failsafe is on a crusade to kill billionaires which presumably means he will cross paths and cause conflict with both Bruce Wayne and Batman. That being said we're beyond hyped to have a hulking new big bad introduced to Gotham! Don't miss out on this huge FIRST APPEARANCE of Failsafe in Batman #125!
