By Alex Nagorski Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE #1 and FAIREST #19!

The legendary, Eisner Award-winning series BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE returns in a brand-new six-issue miniseries featuring tales of The Dark Knight by some of comics’ greatest writers and artists!

“It's been great fun to relaunch BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE, it's a series I'm quite proud of,” said editor Mark Chiarello. “As with the original, I knew the key was to work with the best of the best writers and artists again. I mean, how can you go wrong with the greatest comic character of all time? PLUS talent like Neal Adams, Marc Silvestri, Sean Murphy, Chip Kidd, and all the rest!”

Void of color but full of action, BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE #1 kicks off with the talent of Chip Kidd and Michael Cho, Neal Adams, Joe Quinones and Maris Wicks, John Arcudi and Sean Murphy, and Howard Mackie and Chris Samnee.

Then in FAIREST, “The Return of the Maharaja” continues as Charming and Nalayani return to camp after escaping the Village of the Dead. The Dhole aren’t far behind … and this time they’re under new orders! But why does the Master of the Dhole want Charming dead?

Meanwhile, Nalayani learns that her actions have consequences when her village faces its ultimate fate without her there to protect them. She rushes back home, but will she arrive in time? Written by Sean E. Williams and featuring art by Stephen Sadowski, Russ Braun, Phil Jimenez, Christian Alamy, and Andrew Dalhouse, FAIREST #19 hits shelves this Wednesday.
