This centuries-spanning original graphic novel from legendary writer/artist Walter Simonson cleverly ties the Biblical story of Judas to the DC Universe. Simonson shows how one of the silver coins Judas was paid to betray Jesus has had an impact on the DC Universe, with chapters starring The Golden Gladiator (70 A.D.), The Viking Prince (900 A.D.), Captain Fear (1740) and Bat Lash (1880). The centerpiece of the book is an epic battle between Batman and Two-Face. The story blasts into the future as well, with a final chapter set in the year 2070.

About the Author:

Walter Simonson is a legendary writer/artist who began his career at DC Comics over the years with the award-winning Manhunter feature that ran in DETECTIVE COMICS from 1973-1974. His best-known work may be a highly acclaimed run on THOR in the 1980s (Simonson made a cameo appearance in the 2011 THOR feature film). He also has written and illustrated runs of FANTASTIC FOUR, ORION, METAL MEN, ELRIC: THE MAKING OF A SORCERER, as well as original graphic novels like THE STARSLAMMERS and the official comics adaptations of ALIEN and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. His most recent comics work is writing the comics adaptation of WORLD OF WARCRAFT for DC.

From Publishers Weekly:

With 40 years in the comic book business, Simonson has a long, celebrated career building epic comic book mythology, including acclaimed runs on superhero comics' licensed pop culture franchises and his own creations and co-creations. This absorbing original graphic novel contains a rich tapestry of heroes—pirates, Vikings, western outlaws, space adventurers, and even Batman. This sweeping saga of DC's history begins after Judas betrays Jesus. One of Judas's 30 pieces of silver passes through the hands of DC characters—from the ancient Golden Gladiator and the Viking Prince to Batman and Two-Face in the present, and Simonson's own futuristic co-creation (with Archie Goodwin), Manhunter 2070. The cursed coin tempts heroes and villains with avarice, envy, and a thirst for murder. Simonson is in top form: each historical chapter spotlights a different character in a visually distinct style. His collaborators deftly complement his art and story: colorist Lovern Kindzierski gives each chapter a different, rich color palette, and longtime Simonson collaborator John Workman's lettering and speech balloons vary appropriately for each story. Especially intriguing is the black-and-white (and red) Batman/Two-Face tale, which resembles a newspaper comic strip. This is grand high adventure that will delight both fans familiar with the characters and those new to DC's universe. (Sept.)
