Bruce Wayne and Bane Go Topless For Big Fight in Batman #82 – But Not Catwoman, Obviously

It’s run talking about Tom King‘s Batman online, especially with people who think there just hasn’t been enough Bane in City of Bane. I would argue the title suggests it’s about the city rather than about Bane, his effect on the place and the way it workd now – although setting two issues on a faraway beach stretched even that. But with Batman #81, with Batman and Catwoman re-entering the city, it looks like it’s on, with these preview pages from Batman #82 posted by writer Tom King, by Mitch Gerads and Jordie Bellaire.

And it looks like they are going Greek by stripping off for the fight. Only the boys though… you can’t even get away with that kind of thing in a Black Label book now.
