When Detective Comics #8 arrives, be on the lookout for the Tony S. Daniel penned back-up story featuring Harvey Dent.

DC Comics has announced that the back-up story will be ten pages in length, and give readers a “unique look into Dent’s secret past and an in-depth examination of the monster he’s become. Following his sojourn in Arkham Asylum, Dent will attempt to rebuild himself as a man, even as his dark side continues to exert its influence upon him.”

Accompanying Daniel’s words will be the artwork of Szymon Kudranski.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Szymon Kudraski, who’ll no doubt capture the dark mood and tone I’m reaching for in DETECTIVE COMICS,” said Daniel. “I’m going deep into the character of Harvey Dent and the inner conflicts and demons he must confront.  I’m approaching the characters and story the way I would a multi-layered psychological thriller, one that covers a man at the losing end of a battle within himself.”

With this backup series be the jump the series needs keep people engaged?  With a increase in pages, the cover price will see a bump, and the story will need to justify the new price.

Detective Comics #8 arrives in April 2012.

      *Raises hand* I really don’t think that Tony S. Daniel can write… and his art is beginning to be less than impressive…
