BATMAN: NOEL

One of the most exciting pieces of news to come out of ComicsPRO this week is the announcement that Lee Bermejo, the critically acclaimed artist on the bestselling graphic novel JOKER, will be writing and drawing an original Batman graphic novel titled BATMAN: NOEL.

Most fans are familiar with Lee Bermejo’s art from his two high-profile collaborations with writer Brian Azzarello, JOKER and LEX LUTHOR: MAN OF STEEL, as well as the John Arcudi-penned Superman story he drew for WEDNESDAY COMICS which was serialized by USA Today. This will be Lee Bermejo’s debut as a writer.

As you might have guessed from the title, BATMAN: NOEL will be a holiday tale… with a twist.

Here are a few words about the project from BATMAN: NOEL editor, DC’s VP of Art Direction & Design, Mark Chiarello:

“I’m TOTALLY excited by this project, and not only because Lee Bermejo is such an astounding artist. Sure, the work he’s done in the past (“JOKER” ogn, “WEDNESDAY COMICS”) has been pretty brilliant and I’d expect nothing less from Lee, but the added bonus of BATMAN: NOEL being drawn AND written by Lee is extra cool. In other words, I knew Lee could deliver the goods artistically, but I never knew he was also this great of a writer!”
