Have the first issue on this on pre-order for a few months based on the creative team alone, but that's the first time I've seen a preview - Sharp as in 4K.

I'm in love with Sharp's art. There's a real sense of madness there. Just beautiful

Has Ennis ever written Batman before? (Other than his cameo in Hitman.)

Dennis did a short story in Dark Nights: Dark Metal.

Had no idea this was going to be drawn by the much missed Steve Dillon.

Back in the late 90's when Ennis was riding high on a wave of ultra violence and dick jokes I added everything he was writing to my pull list - I'm talkin 'Medieval Spawn / Witchblade' levels here.

Anyway - he did three issues of 'Legends of the Dark Knight' with Will Simpson during that period, and the only thing I can recall about it was that it was kinda disappointing.

That's a shame about Legends, you'd want three issues of Simpson on Batman (or indeed on anything) to be good.

Ah, the 90s. Back when I bought godawful issues of Spawn because they were written by Gaiman, Sim, Moore etc. Image put out so much crap by good creators.
