The first part of this new story-arc in Batman by writer Tom King and artist Mikel Janin, with colours by Jordie Bellaire and letters by Clayton Cowles saw The Penguin wishing to team-up with the caped crusader to take down Bane. After all, Bane was responsible for the death of Oswald’s wife.
This week, in Batman #59, we catch up with Batman as he storms through Arkham Asylum on a mission to take down Bane, the man responsible, lest we forget for Batman’s recent heartbreak. Here’s a preview of this week’s issue posted on DC’s official website.
Caught between Batman and his unseen enemy, the Penguin has to think on his feet to avoid being taken down by either side. If he chooses one way, he goes to jail; if he chooses the other, he ends up dead. Then again, the choice seems obvious. Is Batman ready for a new kind of avian sidekick?
