Later this year several DC titles will adopt Scott Snyder's Batman Zero Year premise, including Action Comics, The Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lantern Corps, Batwing, Catwoman, Detective Comics, Birds of Prey, and Nightwing .
Another title going into the past will be Batgirl, and Friday DC released the first image by artist Alex Garner from the story - a look at a pre-Batgirl, but-on-the-road-to-heroic Barbara Gordon.
"Around fifteen or sixteen-years-old at the time of her tie-in issue, Barbara Gordon is forced to protect her brother and homestead in anticipation of the upcoming storm," writes DC E-i-C Bob Harras. It’s here that she’ll not only be forced to evaluate what 'home' really means to her, but where she’ll realize for the first time that she has the potential to be a hero in her own right.
Batgirl’s Zero Year tie-in issue will be guest-written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Fernando Pasarin and Jonathan Glapion and a cover by Garner.
