DC To Reprint Katsuhiro Otomo's Batman Story in Future State Gotham

Future State Gotham is the new DC Comics series continuing the Future State storyline with Red Hood and Jason Todd, who has turned on the Batfamily and is working with the Magistrate bringing in vigilantes. And is currently being set up in Batman: Urban Legends, which has seen him commit murder without any excuse of self-defense.

The six-issue debut story arc is co-written by Joshua Williamson and Dennis Culver, with art by Giannis Milonogiannis. At it appears that the black-and-white comic with Milonogiannis' mange-esque style has inspired DC to include a 6-page reprint of Batman: The Third Mask from Batman: Black and White in 1996 by Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo. The series created by Mark Chiarello, then fired by DC Comics, is still bearing fruit to the present day. As ever, it makes you think. Here's the solicitation to the comic book in question and the full solicitation from DC Comics.
