First Look: Rise of the Dawnbreaker

First Look: Rise of the Dawnbreaker

By Tim Beedle Monday, October 2nd, 2017

A Green Lantern ring is usually a symbol of hope. At least, it is if you don’t reside in the Dark Multiverse, as we see in this first look at BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER.

Among all of DC’s heroes, the Green Lanterns shine brightest. Or rather, they are as long as you don’t live on Earth -32 in the Dark Multiverse, where the green light of will has twisted an angry Bruce Wayne into something that could keep even Sinestro up at night. After the murder of his parents in crime alley, young Bruce is gifted with a Green Lantern ring. But with no Alfred Pennyworth to guide him, he soon swallows his fear and pain and lets the void that remains corrupt him and the ring, unleashing a new wave of darkness across his world, and now, ours.

Written by Sam Humphries (GREEN LANTERNS) and drawn by none other than Ethan Van Sciver (GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH), BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER is the latest one-shot storyline to spin out of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, revealing the shocking origin of the third evil Dark Knight and showing that for those living in the shadows, even the brightest dawn can be broken. In this exclusive preview, Bruce shows just how far he’s willing to go in pursuit of his disturbing form of justice.
