Batman Takes on a Werewolf in Legends of the Dark Knight

The Dark Knight trilogy of Batman films are beyond popular, they have a massive fan base and have broken some big blockbuster records. As everyone knows, the Dark Knight films are based on a series of Batman comics (if you didn’t know that then a big “WTF?” to you), but what few people know is that in the Legends of the Dark Knight comics there was a mini story-arc involving a werewolf. That’s right comic book fans, Batman and werewolves!

Written by James Robinson and illustrated by John Watkiss, the werewolf arc in Legends of the Dark Knight can be found in issues #71-73. Simply titled “Werewolf” the story follows our hero as he battles it out with a ferocious and murderous werewolf.

Details for Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #71:

“‘Werewolf’ part 1! The murder of two Wayne Tech employees leads the Dark Knight to London. In the British underworld Batman comes face to face with a different kind of killer…a werewolf.”

The werewolf arc was published earlier this year, so printed copies of issues #71-73 shouldn’t be too difficult to come by. But if you’re big into instant gratification like me, you can download the digital copy from DC right HERE for $1.99 per issue.

I haven’t read these comics yet (not a Batman fan GASP!) but I am pretty geeked that Batman battles it out with a badass werewolf. Anything with werewolves is rad.

Have any of you read this arc? If so, what did you think? And for those that haven’t read it, will you now?

  1. there is another comic with batman and superman fighting both vampires and werewolves.
    Superman and Batman VS Vampires and Werewolves, is a six issue run. It came out a few years ago but it was a pretty fun read. I am not really big on DC comic and Superman, I think superman is a little vanilla and is seriously lacking in the dark department, but the superhero team up vs the monster mash was really a fun read.
