Batman Creature Of The Night is a prestige mini-series that has been a long time coming from Kurt Busiek and John Paul Leon. The first issue came out over a year ago, in late November 2017, intended to be a companion piece to Batman: Secret Identity.
Young Bruce Wainwright lost his parents in a violent crime…and in the real world, no superheroes exist to save the day. But as grief and rage builds inside Bruce until he feels he can’t keep it inside anymore, something strange starts taking wing in the Gotham night! Perhaps Bruce’s grief isn’t inside him after all?
Issues two was out before Christmas 2017, with issue 3 delayed from February until April 2018. Issue 4 was delayed further, eventually solicited for DC Comics to publish in January 2019. However, as of today, DC Comics has told comic book retailers that all orders for that final volume have been cancelled and it will be published later in the year, possibly the end of May.
