Tom King's Batman run continues to its early conclusion as Batman #82 hits stores from DC Comics this week. Last month, we got an early, unlettered look at the big fight between Batman and Bane which saw Batman take off both his mask and his shirt. With Batman #82 in stores tomorrow, DC has released a fully lettered preview, giving it to compliant media partner Den of Geek as comics media continues to mistake access for journalism.
Do words make shirtless Batman even sexier? Let's find out.
It's Bane, it seems, who requests this fight go down maskless.
While in a scene we didn't get to see in the first unlettered preview, we check in on Batman's daddy.
And Batman lies, promising that Catwoman won't get involved.
As Bane agrees to the terms.
Meanwhile, things aren't looking too good for the rest of the Bat family…
And then, as Batman makes introductions, we see him go back on his word.
So what do you think? Is shirtless Batman sexier when he's talking? Or when he's quiet? Batman #82 is in stores tomorrow.
