As he's been going through his archives for old pitches and material during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, writer Rick Remender has uncovered the first pitch he made to DC - for a zombie-centric Batman story.

"Good for a laugh. Notes for my first DC pitch from 2002," Remender wrote on Twitter. "Had all the henchmen of Gotham turned into zombies. I tricked [Dan Brereton] into agreeing to paint it. Pitched in person. Was made fun of by the editor."

But the story has a twist happy ending. While DC said "no" to Remender, someone much more important in his life said "yes" - his future wife, designer Danni Remender.

"Went out that night. Got drunk. Met wife. The end," reads Remender's succint ending to his tale.

Here's Remender's tweet, which includes some other details of his Batman pitch:
