Something legendary in the history of music and comics is about to happen. Have you ever wondered what kind of music the obscure knight from Gotham City listens to? Maybe Bruce Wayne has got a secret identity in terms of music as well… and while we imagine him chilling to Mozart during the day, his disguised alter-ego seems to like heavier sounds. The story hasn’t been told yet… Next fall we will get to see Batman in a totally new light. He will land on stage during a LACUNA COIL show.
These two universes will collide with the Italian release of a very special issue that will be part of the "Dark Nights Metal" saga by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. The volume, which will be released in November by RW Lion, Italian editor of the American company DC Comics, will also be available in a special edition with an unseen illustration by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Riccardo Burchielli, where the band’s power meets the iconic miniseries "DC Dark Nights".
An encounter that happens in such a special moment for both Batman and the band as well. Batman celebrates his 80th anniversary this year, while LACUNA COIL honors its 20-year career.
More details will be revealed by RW Edizioni at the next Lucca Comics & Games event. In the meantime, a preview of the illustration by artist Giovanni Timpano is available below.
RW Edizioni is an editorial project created in 2010 in Novara, with three different sections: RW Lion, RW Goen and RW Lineachiara.
RW Lion: is the editorial section dedicated to American comics by DC Entertainment, which owns the DC Comics (Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman), Vertigo (Sandman, Hellblazer, Preacher, Fables) and MAD trademarks.
RW Goen: the name comes from the 5-yen Japanese coin called go-en and believed to be a lucky charm. It’s the editorial section dedicated to manga and manhwa and it represents the biggest Eastern editors.
RW Lineachiara: the name comes from the French style ligne claire, it's the editorial section dedicated to Latin, French-Belgian and Latin American comics.
LACUNA COIL's latest album, "Black Anima", was released on October 11.
The deluxe edition of "Black Anima" comes with a limited-edition custom deck, created with the help of artist Micah Ulrich.
Last month, LACUNA COIL released an Amazon Original song titled "Bad Things".
The band recently completed the "Disease Of The Anima" North American tour with ALL THAT REMAINS.
