‘Avengers’ Writer Jason Aaron Returns To DC Comics For ‘Batman: Off-World’

Award-winning comic book writer Jason Aaron is well-known to fans of the Marvel Universe. He has written for several of their iconic superheroes including Wolverine, the Punisher, Thor, and even participated in the 2018 relaunch of the Avengers. Aaron has also worked for DC Comics, working on titles such as John Constantine’s ‘Hellblazer’ in 2019.

He is now returning to DC Comics, telling IGN that he will write the new six-issue miniseries ‘Batman: Off-World’ with illustrator Jamie Mendoza.

“A routine night in Gotham City for a young Batman proves to be anything but routine when the crime-fighter is confronted with a sort of foe he’s never faced before—one from beyond the stars,” DC says in a description of the series. “A universe of possible alien threats leads Batman to make a daring decision—to venture alone into the far reaches of the cosmos for the very first time, where the Dark Knight will face the fight of his life! Superstar writer Jason Aaron delivers his first Batman story ever, partnered with blockbuster artist Doug Mahnke for a unique, brutal tale!”

This is not the first time the Dark Knight has gone on a celestial adventure. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Nick Derington took Bruce Wayne on a journey in ‘Batman Universe’ where he has a showdown with the immortal villain Vandal Savage.

In “Off-World,” Batman will deal with more extraterrestrial beings.

“I fell in love with comics because of DC,” Aaron told IGN in an interview. “The first books my young, beardless self ever plucked from a grocery store spinner rack were the New Teen Titans and World’s Finest and Batman. Books that opened the door to a universe of stories that would quite literally change the course of my life. So it is with great honor and excitement that at long last I get to make my proper debut as a DC writer, with a Batman story that takes a young Dark Knight on his own first journey into the far, wondrous reaches of the DC cosmos.”

Aaron previously worked on the 2008 Batman title ‘Joker’s Asylum: Penguin’ one-shot with artist Jason Pearson.
