Alex Maleev To Draw ‘Batman’ Backup Story In March

batman maleev

DC Comic announced today that on Batman issue #18, readers will be treated to guest art from Andy Kubert and Sandra Hope, with Capullo returning as regular artist at issue #19. But, perhaps more interesting is the inclusion in the solicitation that long-time Marvel artist, Alex Maleev, will be drawing the backup story, as written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV. I was actually wondering what Maleev’s next interior work would be just the other day. This is Maleev’s first DC book in over a decade. Check out the “Batman” #18 solicitation below.
