(Le Doc) #1

L’asile d’Arkham a un nouveau patient : The Maxx.

Et il ne faut pas longtemps pour que les expériences menées par un médecin sournois déclenchent une étrange réaction en chaîne : la fusion de Gotham avec l’Outback, le paysage mental psychédélique de The Maxx !

Ecrite et dessinée par Sam Kieth, la mini-série en 5 épisodes Batman / The Maxx sera publiée par IDW et DC Comics à partir de septembre.

Sam Kieth : “Doing a Batman and Maxx crossover is like a family reunion with my favorite brother and our really cool cousin. You never want it to end… or at least I hope you won’t!”

Description: With Joker back in Arkham, Maxx runs off into the night. Meanwhile, Batman grows more wary of Dr. Disparu’s experiments. In an effort to unravel the riddles of the Outback (and Disparu), Batman seeks out Julie Winters… and they both enter a dimensional hole leading to the Outback-where they encounter an alternate version of Harley Quinn! Back in the real world, Joker, Harley, and the Penguin are the current subjects of Disparu’s experiments-experiments that have a decidedly bad reaction on the Maxx!
