DC has a preview up for First Wave, a new comic from Brian Azzarello and Rags Morales starring Batman, Doc Savage, and The Spirit.
The comic, set in a noir world where superpowers do not exist, pits the heroes against a shadowy group called The Golden Tree.
From the DCU Blog:
In the long shadow of The War and amidst the rubble of a shattered world, humanity’s last hope may be a handful of masked vigilantes with only their fists and wits at their disposal against a shadowy cabal known only as The Golden Tree.
Enter Doc Savage, a veritable super man plagued by the loss of his father and a nagging suspicion that something evil lurks around the corner.
Enter the mysterious Spirit, a man once thought dead now protecting the streets of Central City from the corruption and decay that’s already pushed it to the brink of destruction.
And what of the caped crime fighter known as “The Bat-Man”? Needless to say, he isn’t what you’ve come to expect from the Dark Knight: Brash, cocky, inexperienced and daring.
This is the pulp, neo-noir setting of FIRST WAVE, a six-issue mini-series that springs from the mind of acclaimed, Eisner Award-winning writer Brian Azzarello and featuring art by versatile master Rags Morales.
