Writer Scott Snyder’s time with the Dark Knight isn’t over yet, but his next arc on All-Star Batman is set to reveal even more added layers to the mythology of the Dark Knight detective…and not all of them are pleasant!
This week, All-Star Batman #10 will kick off a new storyline called “The First Ally,” which finds Batman outmaneuvered by a deadly new foe. But is this a previously unseen enemy? Or a threat from the past who has come to destroy the Batman and everyone he cares for? There may be a deeper game in play, but only the most trusted person in Bruce Wayne’s life knows for sure.
In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for All-Star Batman # 10, Batman and his beloved butler, Alfred Pennyworth chase Hush, the vengeful villain who stole Bruce Wayne’s face and attempted to do the same with his legacy. To bring down Hush, Batman is going to have to act in a much more public way than he’s used to, but it should be a hell of a show!
This issue features a story by Scott Snyder with art by Rafael Albuquerque and colors by Jordie Bellaire. Here’s the official description from DC Comics:
“The First Ally” part one! When the Dark Knight is taken down by a new enemy whose attacks he cannot counter, he uncovers a plot spanning generations…whose mastermind might be one of his closest allies! But who is the First Ally?”
All-Star Batman # 10 will be released on Wednesday, May 10 in comic book stores everywhere.
