DC Comics announced Event Leviathan: Checkmate, a six issue miniseries by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, for release on April 22, 2020.

The original Event Leviathan miniseries shook up the structure of espionage agencies in the DC Universe (see "Three Big Summer Arcs Flow Out of DC's 'Year of the Villain'"), but now they've reemerged to become united under the banner of the Leviathan.  The last line of defense against this mysterious spy syndicate are Green Arrow, The Question, Lois Lane, Talia Al Ghul, and a secret hero working behind the scenes to help this new version of Checkmate. This six-issue miniseries was written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Alex Maleev, and each issue is 32 pages long.

Event Leviathan: Checkmate will retail for $3.99.

DC Comics had the top selling comic and graphic novel in comic stores for 2019 (see "DC Has Top Comic, Graphic Novel of 2019").
