Batman is an ongoing comic book series featuring the DC Comics hero of the same name. The character first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (cover dated May 1939). Batman proved to be so popular that a self-titled ongoing comic book series began publication in the spring of 1940. It was first advertised in early April 1940, one month after the first appearance of his new sidekick, Robin, the Boy Wonder.
Though the Batman comic book was initially launched as a quarterly publication, it later became a bimonthly series through the late 1950s, after which it became a monthly publication and has remained so since. The original series ended in 2011 and was relaunched with a new first issue.
DC Comics relaunched Batman with issue #1 in September 2011, written by Scott Snyder and drawn by Greg Capullo, as part of DC’s company-wide title relaunch, The New 52. As with all of the books associated with the DC relaunch, Bruce Wayne appears to be about five years younger than the previous incarnation of the character. Superheroes at large have appeared only in the past five years, and are viewed with, at best, suspicion, and, at worst, outright hostility. All of the characters that have served as Robin, except Stephanie Brown, have been accounted for as still having served at Batman’s side in the new continuity. The stories build on recent developments, with most of the character’s previous history remaining intact, and Bruce Wayne is again the only Batman, with Dick Grayson having returned to his role as Nightwing.
The first story arc of the title, “The Court of Owls”, focuses on Batman’s discovery of a secret society in Gotham City that he had never known about before, dating back to the time of Gotham’s founding and his ancestor Alan Wayne, and his battles against the Talons, the agents of the Court of Owls. This led to the first major New 52 crossover, “Night of the Owls”. The finale of the story sees Thomas Wayne Jr. as the head Talon of the Court of Owls in Gotham.
The second arc was named “Death of the Family”, a name-play on the “Batman: A Death in the Family”. It picked up on the cliffhanger involving the Joker from Tony Daniel’s run on Detective Comics. Talon, a spin-off of the “Court of Owls” storyline, launched in September 2012 and focused on a rogue Talon from the Court. After a storyline involving Clayface and a one shot dealing with the aftermath of “Death of the Family”, Snyder’s next arc was “Batman: Zero Year”. This followed up on Batman #0 and retold how Bruce Wayne became Batman, not done since Frank Miller’s “Batman: Year One”. Starting in October 2014, the launch of the “Batman: Endgame” storyline, features the Justice League trying to kill Batman because of an unknown motive, while the series is stated to last for six issues and 4 one-shots following.
