Six years after it was initially announced, the 4-issue Batman: Europa mini-series is set to debut from DC Comics in January of 2011.  DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee provides the art for the first issue of the series, which is being co-written by Brian Azzarello and Matteo Casali.  Giuseppe Camuncoli, Diego Latorre, and Jock will each provide the art for one of the three remaining issues.


Originally announced back in October of 2004, Batman: Europa finds the Dark Knight, who is in danger of dying from a mysterious virus, teaming up with his arch nemesis The Joker to scour Europe in search of their diabolical common foe.  According to DC’s The Source blog, the first issue will feature painted art from Jim Lee.
