Batman: Year Zero

Today DC Comics announced a nearly year-long story arc called “The Year Zero” starting in June 2013 written by Scott Snyder with art by Greg Capullo. The story takes Bruce Wayne to the very beginning of his career in the New 52, DC Comics’ year and a half old relaunched universe, and shows “how Batman became who he is,” writer Scott Snyder tells the AP.

“It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin,'” the writer clarified. The story will focus on how Bruce Wayne figured out how to be Batman, and what challenges he faced when he first wore the cape and cowl.

“We tried to preserve as much of Batman’s history as we could,” said Synder. He promises this will be a story no one has told before, including how Bruce “built the cave” and “faced off with his first super villain.” He also says it won’t retread or “take apart” the seminal Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli story “Batman: Year One.”

Also in June 2013 will be the launch of Superman Unchained, a new ongoing Superman title from Snyder and artist (and DC Co-Publisher) Jim Lee.

Looks like Snyder will be a busy guy this summer.
