Recently minted DC-exclusive writer Paul Cornell plans to dial up the "over the top weird and wonderful zany surreal Britishness" in the upcoming six-issue miniseries Knight & Squire.
Announced today on DC's The Source blog, the series stars Batman and Robin's English counterparts, who have appeared a few times now in Grant Morrison's Bat books. Cornell is joined on the series by artist Jimmy Broxton and cover artist Yanick Paquette.
"I’m delighted to be working in DC Britain!" Cornell said. "Grant always said that he added something to the Knight and Squire’s world with every appearance: we’ll be taking that policy, and the amount of over the top weird and wonderful zany surreal Britishness and dialling them up to eleven. If you’ve wanted to see a milkman fighting a dinosaur in a suit, in a pub, then this is the comic for you."
No word yet on when the series starts.
