Doomsday Clock #3 hit your local comic book store yesterday, and apparently, Superman wasn’t the only DC Comics character getting a new suit. Batman gets some cosmetic upgrades for 2018.
This will be used across the other comics, yes.

According to IGN, the purple inner cape lining is gone, the utility belt is back to being full gold, and the classic yellow and black Bat oval have made a comeback, but no trunks.
What do you think of Batman’s new look? Comment below.
Geoff Johns and Frank are the creative team on Doomsday Clock a 12-issue maxi-series that will finish up in 2019. Johns also explained that Doomsday Clock is a stand-alone story with no tie-in material. However, it “will have an impact on the entire DC Universe. It will affect everything moving forward and everything that has come before. It will touch the thematic and literal essence of DC.” So by the time the final issue releases, “the rest of the universe will have caught up to it — and the repercussions of the event will become known.”
Doomsday Clock #4 hits your local comic book store on March 28.
