Till this day, there was only one film that I wanted to see so badly that I went to it’s Midnight Premiere. That film was Tim Burton’s Batman. Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Kim Basinger, Jack Palance, Billy Dee Williams…the list goes on. At that moment, Michael Keaton WAS Batman for me. And while the list of actors that have played Batman has grown, I still have a soft spot in my heart for Keaton’s version. Apparently, I’m not the only one. DC is bringing Tim Burton’s Batman and Gotham City back for a special 6 issue encore in Sam Hamm and Joe Quinones Batman 89. This will start on August 10th as introduced in this Press Release:


Step Back Into the Gotham City of Tim Burton’s Seminal Classic ‘Batman’ movies!

Batman ’89 by Screenwriter Sam Hamm and Artist Joe Quinones Begins on August 10!

Step back into the Gotham of Tim Burton’s seminal classic Batman movies on August 10! Batman ’89 by screenwriter Sam Hamm (Batman, Batman Returns) and artist Joe Quinones (Dial H for Hero) will pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director in an incredible new comic book miniseries!

When the new six-issue comic book run launches next month, Gotham City is being torn in two as citizens dressed as Batman and The Joker duke it out in the streets! As D.A. Harvey Dent tries to keep the city together, he targets the one problem tearing it apart: BATMAN! And he’ll get Bruce Wayne’s help in taking down the Dark Knight!

In this first look preview, all the classic elements of Burton’s Batman are on full display. Take a look, and then scroll through to pick the covers you want your local comic shop to order for you!
