Official Press Release
Legendary Hong Kong comics creator Tony Wong teams up with veteran Batman scribe Doug Moench for the original, 4-color hardcover graphic novel BATMAN: HONG KONG, scheduled for June release. This 128-page epic takes Batman from his Gotham City home to the other side of the globe for a truly international adventure.
"Tony's art combines linework, dazzling color and painterly techniques, and he provides everything from layouts to separations," says Group Editor Andy Helfer. "Tony practically invented the comics business in Hong Kong, so we're very pleased to have him on board and working with the tremendously talented Doug Moench on this amazing story."
BATMAN: HONG KONG begins when the Dark Knight discovers a serial killer who uses streaming video to broadcast his vicious executions via the internet. To put a stop to these brutal slayings, Batman travels to Hong Kong, where he gets caught in the middle of a feud between two brothers: one, the head of a local gang of criminals, the other, the chief of police! Now, the Dark Knight's only hope may be Hong Kong's own super-hero, the mysterious Night Dragon.
BATMAN: HONG KONG is a 128-page, 4-color, hardcover graphic novel scheduled to reach comic book stores in June.
