DC Comics announced it will be lowering the cover price of Batman: Death Mask to $2.99 per issue. The mini-series is the American comics debut of Yoshinori Natsume who will spin Batman in the manga style.
In BATMAN: DEATH MASK #1, thereâ€™s a new serial killer in Gotham, one who may have ties to the training Bruce Wayne acquired as a young man in Japan. Does the murderer know that Bruce Wayne is the Batman?
And in BATMAN: DEATH MASK #2, Bruce Wayne must confront his past and examine how the time he spent training to become Batman affected him â€” and whether those experiences led to the killer now rampaging through Gotham Cityâ€™s underworld. (This black-and-white miniseries no longer will be in Prestige Format, and will be saddle stitched instead of squarebound.)
Issue #1 arrives April 9 with Batman: Death Mask #2 dropping May 7.
While the price drop is a nice announcement, it would be great to have all titles from the Big Two drop by another dollar.
