The new Parallel Worlds blog at the New York Post's website officially launched Wednesday morning, and kicked off a full week of coverage focused on Batman's next big story arc: Zero Year.
The first issue of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's next arc, Batman #21, takes Bruce Wayne into a brighter, more colorful Gotham City.
“I can only tell you I never expected to be drawing Gotham as Scott has it written in the first issue,” Capullo told Parallel Worlds. “Within the first five pages of the first script, I was like WTF! You know, what is going on in this thing?”
“Yeah, the fun of it is,” Snyder added, “you will open the book, and see from Page 1, 2 and 3, and 4, how different it is from Year One.”
Stay tuned to Parallel Worlds for more from Snyder and Capullo all week.
