Preview: Two Tales With A Military Theme In ‘Batman Gotham Nights’ DC Digital First
by Olly MacNamee
Yesterday DC Digital First released Superman Man of Tomorrow, which we’ve juts previewed, but today’s offering, and making good on their promise of a new comic book a day, is Batman Gotham Nights with not one but two stories featuring the Dark Knight. One, “Medal of Honor” is based on a true story, while ‘Honor Code’ focusses on Batman’s cousin, Batwoman when she was simply Katherine Kane and servicing her country. It’s all very militaristic isn’t it? So, stand to attention and check out our preview of today’s DC Digital First release available now on comiXology. But, be warned UK readers, seems that 99cents price translates at a more expensive 99p over here. Something worth noting.
“Medal of Honor” by Sal Giunta, Brad Meltzer, Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair.
To save a friend from seemingly insurmountable odds, the Dark Knight Detective must summon every ounce of his skill and bravery! This tale is based on the true story of U.S. Army Specialist Salvatore A. Giunta, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his service in Afghanistan—the first living soldier to receive that honor since the Vietnam War.
“Honor Code” by Larry Hama, Mirko Colak, and John Kalisz
Katherine Kane has worked hard to establish herself as one of Gotham’s most intelligent and strategically cunning vigilantes. But before she was Batwoman, she was a West Point cadet—and when she gets drafted into a covert mission as brigade XO, she’ll need every bit of training that the Army gave her!
