“They never should have cancelled Legends of the Dark Knight.” Those ten simple words have been a great “talking point” for Matthew as he provides commentary on my love for the series. But it looks like DC is taking “my words” to heart once again as the company announced it is bringing back Legends of the Dark Knight.
Taking place outside of DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 continuity, the new series features several stand-alone stories by various creators that chronicle different cases handled by The Dark Knight.
These are simply not reprints of old LoDK issues (you can find many of those already on the DC Comics App), but rather new tales, with the first being written by Damon Lindelof, LOST writer, who will be taking on the first six chapters of the first tale.
New chapters are released every Thursday for .$.99 each, which follows the Smallville, Season Eleven, digital comics method. With Smallville, the 22-pages of digital content equate to about 11 pages of print, so at the end of the day, buying all of the weekly digital installments for $5.99 is probably cheaper than buying 66 pages on the news stand.
The first installment of the new Legends of the Dark Knight series kicks off today, Thursday, June 07, 2012.
