Batman Eternal #52 and Ufology #1 Signing with James Tynion IV and Noah J. Yuenkel
Apr 1 @ 7:00 pm

Friend of Midtown James Tynion IV will be signing Batman Eternal #52, as well as Ufology #1 with Noah J. Yuenkel at Midtown Comics Downtown on Wednesday, April 1st! More details here! 

Batman Eternal #52 – 04/01/15
Writer: James Tynion IV & Scott Snyder

The epic Bat-story over a year in the making comes to a stunning end! Gotham City is in flames! Villains are running wild in the streets! Bat-tech has been corrupted! And the mastermind behind it all has put a knife in Batman’s ribs! How will the Dark Knight put an end to this nightmare…and how will it shape the face of Gotham City to come?

Ufology #1 – 04/01/15
Writer: James Tynion IV and Noah J. Yuenkel

What’s to Love: James Tynion IV has already blown us away with his original series The Woods and Memetic, and now he’s teaming up with Thrillbent cowriter Noah J. Yuenkel (The House in the Wall) and artist Matt Fox (Long Walk to Valhalla) to bring us a story about aliens in the Midwest. It’s reminiscent of films like E.T. and Super 8, and TV shows like Twin Peaks and The X-Files.
