Ahead of their FanDome event this weekend, DC has announced two new series, a Peacemaker one-shot, and new creative teams and story arcs for comics debuting in January.

Batman: The Knight #1 launches a 10-issue series by writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico that looks at the time between Batman’s oft-told origin story and the present, depicting how the young, angry Bruce Wayne transformed himself into Batman. The first issue is slated for release on January 18 and will have a main cover by Di Giandomenico, a variant cover by Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion, a 1:25 variant by Gerald Parel, and a 1:50 foil variant by Capullo and Glapion. The 40-page comic will have an MSRP of $4.99 for the regular cover, $5.99 for the variants, all of which are on card stock.

Peacemaker: Disturbing the Peace #1 is (despite the issue number) a one-shot by Garth Ennis and Garry Brown that tells the backstory of the Suicide Squad character whose HBO Max show will debut in January as well (see “‘Peacemaker’ Casting”). The story, which has a 17+ rating, is set before Christopher Smith joined the Suicide Squad and is framed as an interview with an obsessive psychiatrist. The 40-page, prestige-format comic will go on sale on January 25 with a main cover by Juan Ferreyra, variant by Garry Brown, 1:25 variant by Ryan Brown, and 1:50 variant by Amanda Conner. MSRP is $6.99.

Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes #1 marks writer Brian Michael Bendis’s return to the superhero team for a six-issue event miniseries with art and main cover by Scott Godlewski. The story is set 1,000 years in the future but looks back to the 21st century, which was a golden age of superheroes but, like the present day in the comic, also faced a decline into darkness. The team has to not only hold back the darkness but also unravel the mystery of the Gold Lanterns. The 32-page comic has a sale date of January 11 and an MSRP of $3.99 for the regular cover, $4.99 for the variant cover by Travis Moore.

Detective Comics #1050 will be an oversize, 48-page issue that will include the start of a new story by Mark Waid and Dan Mora that will feature both Batman and Superman, as well as the conclusion of Mariko Tamaki and Ivan Reis’s “Arkham Tower” story and part four of Matthew Rosenberg and Fernando Blanco’s “House of Gotham.” This issue is part four of the weekly “Shadows of the Bat” event (see “DC Announces New Batman Story Arc, ‘Batgirl’ Series, ‘Shadows of the Bat’ Event”) and will be released on January 25 with a main cover by Irving Rodriguez, a variant cover by Lee Bermejo, a four-part connecting variant by Jorge Molina, a 1:25 variant by Jorge Fornes, and a team variant by Jay Fabok. The MSRP will be $5.99 for the main cover, $6.99 for the variants, all on card stock.

Catwoman #39 will be writer Tini Howard’s first comic for DC, and she and artist Nico Leon will start things off by sending Selina Kyle to an underground club to steal some blackmail materials. The 32-page comic is scheduled for January 18 and will have a main cover by Jeff Dekal, a variant by Jenny Frison, and a 1:25 variant by Sozomaika. The MSRP will be $3.99 for the main cover, $4.99 for the card stock variants.
