Greg Capullo has revealed that his upcoming DC Black Label title Batman: The Last Knight on Earth will be a three-issue, double-sized limited series.
I’m penciling page 17 of issue 1 of Last Knight. I’d only be 5 pages away from finishing. But, Last Knight will be three 48 page issues! Lead buuuurn! ??????????????????— Greg Capullo (@GregCapullo) July 24, 2018
Originally announced in 2016 as a Sean Murphy-drawn arc of Scott Snyder's All-Star Batman, the project evolved to become a standalone series with Capullo for the since-launched DC Black Label imprint.
"Batman wakes up in a desert. He doesn’t know what year it is or how the Joker’s head is alive in a jar beside him, but it’s the beginning of a quest unlike anything the Dark Knight has undertaken before," reads DC's description of the series. "In this strange future, villains are triumphant and society has liberated itself from the burden of ethical codes. Fighting to survive while in search of answers, Bruce Wayne uncovers the truth about his role in this new world—and begins the last Batman story ever told."
