Another San Diego Comic-Con is underway, and DC Comics used a panel on Friday afternoon to discuss their upcoming notable print releases, which has gifted Matt Reeves’ The Batman fans with an official cover for the Riddler comic spin-off that was announced in March.

Following his incredible performance as Edward Nashton/The Riddler in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, Paul Dano writes the six-issue bimonthly DC Black Label series, with Stevan Subic illustrating the run.

In the panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Dano was present to discuss the comic and how the comic series came to fruition. It started with Dano and Reeves creating an origin for the Riddler on set for The Batman, which Reeves relayed to the powers-that-be at DC, who decided to turn the on-set character building into a full-blown comic run.

The title is a clear reference to one of the most definitive Batman comic series that was created in 1987 by Frank Miller – “Batman: Year One” – which subsequently spurred multiple issues, totaling four. The four-issue story explores Bruce Wayne’s creation of the Batman and his first year fighting criminals in Gotham. Following the success of “Batman: Year One”, the series received two sequels – “Batman: Year Two” and “Batman: Year Three”, as well as multiple “Year One” style origin stories for various Gotham characters such as Catwoman, Robin, and Batgirl.

“The Riddler: Year One” will release this October. Stay tuned with Nerds & Beyond for additional updates.

She’s been gaming since an early age, a trend that has continued into adulthood, and her most said phrase in regards to her favorite characters is “I could fix him/her.” Hasn’t stopped crying about Arthur Morgan since 2018 (with no plans to anytime soon) and thinks everyone should be nicer to Gale of Waterdeep. At her core, she's really just an aspiring vampire juice box. Especially nerdy about: video games, Star Wars, D&D, Spider-Man, and horror (all of it). Based in Denver, CO.
