DC Comics announced today via the AP that superstar writer and artist duo Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo would continue their bestselling run on Batman with a look back at the Dark Knight’s origins in an 11-issue series titled “The Zero Year”.

Set to begin this June, Snyder confirmed that he and Capullo would be revisiting the formative years of Bruce Wayne:

“It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin,’” he said “It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in the New 52.”

“We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact,” Snyder said of the change. “It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain. »
