Brian Bendis Teases LEVIATHAN Event

- Advertisement -

Brian Bendis has revealed his plan for a new DC Comics event called Leviathan. The information comes courtesy of the Jinxworld newsletter in the recent Cover #5 by Bendis and artist David Mack. Bendis’s Scarlet partner, Alex Maleev, will be joining him on this new venture.

We wrap up [SCARLET] with issue #5. Then Alex has asked me to do some DC comics with him. He’s always wanted to do DC comics with me. He’s always wanted to do Batman and other characters with me. He’s talked about it for years. So when I was coming to DC Comics, we knew we were going to bring our creator-owned stuff with us, but we also knew that there was an itch that needed to be scratched.

So our personal reward for finishing the fully painted SCARLET VOLUME 3 graphic novel is our fully painted contribution to DETECTIVE COMICS #1000. Our first proper Batman story in this landmark publishing event. We are so honored. It’s already done, and it’s gorgeous. I’m very excited to be part of that project. ACTION COMICS #1000 and DETECTIVE COMICS #1000. Self-high-five!

After DETECTIVE #1000, Alex and I will be embarking on a major DC project. It’s called LEVIATHAN. You will soon hear a lot about it. It’s something so big, so monumental to the DC Universe; it was worth pausing our numerous creator-owned stuff for. This special event story lets Alex do everything he’s ever wanted to do at DC.

Leviathan — the criminal enterprise that both creates genetically altered metahumans and brainwashes ordinary people into working on its behalf — debuted in Grant Morrison’s Batman Inc; Bendis has recently woven the organization into his runs on Superman and Action Comics.

DC readers may remember Bendis’s tease for “Leviathan — A DC Comics Mystery Event” on the splash page of Action Comics #1003, which begins:

Starting in Action Comics 1007, it is revealed that something or someone is stealthily taking out ALL the secret organizations in the DC universe.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, I feel like the comics medium & characters are part of my DNA.


If you want your BUSINESS to be part of something bigger than itself, you might be a good fit to partner with Monkeys Fighting Robots.
