This Tom King interview on BATMAN reveals Bane’s weakness

How will BATMAN end Bane's reign as the de facto ruler of Gotham? A surprising character might have the answer.


Today, we have a special treat for the fans of Batman: a Tom King interview! For the last several years, King and a cadre of artists including John Romita Jr., David Finch, Mikel Janin, and Clay Mann, among others, have crafted a BATMAN run for the ages. With a focus on interrogating Bruce Wayne’s intimate romantic life and familial ties, and with a renewed focus on Bane, this DC Comics series has been filled with some fantastic action and character work.

However, with the coming culmination of the City of Bane arc, this run of Batman has entered its final chapter. As King prepares to say goodbye to the flagship Batman title before moving onto Batman/Catwoman in January 2020, join him for a look back at what the last few years with Bruce have meant to him. And more broadly, how does he look back at his time at DC Comics penning hit series including Mister Miracle and Omega Men?

Earlier this week, the Beat got the exclusive scoop on Batman #81. That Issue is on store shelves right now.

It’s time for the big showdown. Batman is calling Bane out. But is the Dark Knight Detective ready to take on the foe who broke him worse than any other that came before? And what else stands in Batman’s way, to put an obstacle between him and his enemy? Tread lightly, Batman, because not only do the lives of your son and trusted friends hang in the balance, but your entire home could collapse on top of you!
