Exclusive: Tom King’s Batman #35 Check Out The First Five Pages

Batman #35 hits your local comic book store on November 15, but Monkeys Fighting Robots Thursday night received the first five pages of the book courtesy of DC Comics.

Talia al Ghul is not a happy camper, and she’s trying her best to sour Catwoman’s mood as well. If there is one thing Tom King is really good at, it’s telling a dark, twisted tale and King goes straight to Talia’s childhood with issue 35 of Batman.

Since we are comic book nerds, we notice the little things that make comic books great. Look very close at the splash-page of two and three, and you will see great details in Jordie Bellaire’s color work. There isn’t a lot of color on this page, but Bellaire makes the page pop with the colors of the two swords and the flesh tones.


Check out the five-page preview with Olivier Coipel’s 800th issue variant below.

About the issue:
“Dream of Me” part three! Has the Caped Crusader passed the point of no return? Turns out he’s going to need a little help from his friends, but this help comes with a downside: Batman’s true intentions will be exposed.

The 32-page comic is written by Tom King, with art by Joëlle Jones, and colors by Jordie Bellaire. King has been writing a bi-weekly Batman tale since issue one, post Rebirth. His run of Batman is sitting at an 8.2 out 10 according to comicbookroundup.com, with an average of 29 critics per issue.
