To celebrate the debut of fan-favorite writer Chip Zdarsky and the return of artists Jorge Jiménez and Tomeu Morey, DC has revealed an incredible selection of covers for their debut issue, Batman #125, on sale July 5.

Featuring a main wraparound cover by series artist Jiménez, these variant covers are rendered by some of the most celebrated and dynamic artists in comics, including:

  • Open to buy variant cover by DC Publishing and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee
  • Open to buy variant cover by InHyuk Lee

Zdarsky, Jiménez, and Morey take The Dark Knight into uncharted waters this summer with their debut story arc, “Failsafe.”  Bruce Wayne is at a turning point, haunted by dreams of a dark future, while Gotham City billionaires are being gruesomely murdered. With the discovery of an archenemy’s involvement and a tragedy unfolding, the Dark Knight’s nightmares are just beginning. Batman has a plan for everything, but can even he plan for the horror that is Failsafe?

And in the backup story, there’s chaos in Gotham as the underworld fights over one of its crown jewels…and Selina Kyle is caught in the middle. Can she stop the bloodshed and maybe even make a little money in the process?
