    Batman: The Dark Knight last edited by KillerZ on 04/17/24 09:02AM View full history


    Drawn by: David Finch (#1 - 7, #9 - 15); Ed Benes (#8); Ethan Van Sciver (#16 - 29)

    Following the end of Flashpoint, DC Comics relaunched all their series with new #1 issues, including the David Finch written/drawn Batman: The Dark Knight. Due to Finch's underestimation of writing duties, the series first volume suffered from very large delays, with Finch not even drawing the last two issues, just to get them out before the relaunch. To counter this problem the second go around, Finch brought in writer Paul Jenkins to act as the Writer/Co-plotter, leaving Finch more focused on his drawing. Though Jenkins had originally planned to write more, he was replaced after seven issues, by Gregg Hurwitz, who would solely write the series from issue #10 and on. Between Jenkins' last issue, Joe Harris wrote a one shot issue with Ed Benes on art for issue #8, while Judd Winick teamed up with series artist David Finch for issue #9's tie in to The Night of the Owls event.
