DC Reveals Batman: Endgame Solicits For March

BM Cv40-mtv-1418410345

DC Comics has revealed the solicits to their "Batman: Endgame" titles for March, ringing in the finale of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s final Batman and Joker confrontation.

As MTVNews revealed, "Endgame" will conclude in March’s "Batman #40," but not before spreading out to numerous tie-ins. This is a Joker event, after all. "Batgirl: Endgame #1," "Arkham Manor: Endgame #1," "Detective Comics: Endgame #1,"
and "Gotham Academy: Endgame #1" will show how the Joker's latest attack affects the rest of Gotham City and its citizen. In addition, "Batman #40" will expand to 40 pages—and with a $4.99 price tag.

Batman writer Scott Snyder refers to “Endgame” as the final act in his Batman vs. Joker saga, which he started with "Batman: Death Of The Family," and "Batman: Zero Year." In "Endgame," the Joker has resurfaced after his downfall in Death of the Family, and is sporting a new face and new mission to destory everything the Dark Knight holds dear.

You can check out the covers to "Batman #40" and "Batgirl: Endgame #1" below, as along with the solicit text for each Endgame tie-in. Note that if you haven’t read any of the chapters to Endgame so far, the solicits will spoil some major plot points.
