We found out Friday that Batman and Detective Comics would both be receiving backup stories, increasing the page count – and price – of the two flagship Bat-titles at DC Comics. Yesterday, Batman's backup was revealed: a new story delving into the Court of Owls, characters introduced in the main story of the series since its relaunch in September 2011. <a href=http://www.newsarama.com/comics/scott-snynder-swamp-batman-back-ups-120109.html>Writer Scott Snyder told us more</a> about the back-ups, including artist Rafael Albuquerque's involvement, as well as a co-writer for the first set of stories.
Today, DC Comics revealed on The Source their plans for Detective Comics' back-up, which will star consummate Bat-Villain Two-Face. [<a href=http://www.newsarama.com/comics/10-best-batman-villains-111116.html>Click here to find out where Two-Face ranks on the all-time Batman Villains list</a>] The story will focus on Harvey Dent's past, while also showing what life is like for a villain post-Arkham Asylum. Tony Daniels, writer-artist of the main story, will write the back-ups, with Szymon Kudranski providing art. Both back-ups will start with the eigth issue of their respective series in April 2012.
