This year, DC Comics launched its long-awaited “Batman: Earth One” graphic novel by Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and fan-favorite artist Gary Frank. The original graphic novel detailed the very beginnings of the Caped Crusader, and it should come as no surprise that Johns and Frank plan to reunite for a second volume to continue the adventures of a fledgling Batman. While in conversation on Twitter, Johns tweeted “Batman: Earth One” was one of Barnes & Noble’s “Best Quirky, Beautiful, Different Books of 2012,” tagging Frank in the post.
“Honored ‘Batman: Earth One’ by me and the amazing [Gary Frank] was chose as one of Barnes & Noble’s best of 2012!” Johns said via Twitter.
Frank’s reply to Johns was at first coy about a second volume, seeming to indicate there wouldn’t be one.
The second volume of “Batman: Earth One” would match the franchise in volumes with J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis’ “Superman: Earth One,” the second volume of which released this month.
“Batman: Earth One Volume 2” is set for release 2013.
