Brian Michael Bendis has a knack for taking small characters in the universe and pushing them to the lime light. He did this with Marvel (Luke Cage and Jessica Jones) and it appears he is going to do with with his next DC Comics story, Event Leviathan: Checkmate. Check out the details below and get ready for another Bendis story that re-teams with long time collaborator Alex Maleev.
Press Release: The results of the Event Leviathan miniseries established a new world order among the espionage agencies of the DC Universe, now united under the single banner of the mysterious Leviathan!
Leviathan has agents and acolytes all over the world, but what exactly are they following? What’s the secret behind Leviathan’s power? The planet’s last, best hope against this rampant threat is an unlikely collection of allies that will form the new Checkmate! The most dangerous spies in all of DC must team up to take the world back from Leviathan before all is lost.
Green Arrow, The Question, Lois Lane and Talia Al Ghul are the last line of defense against Leviathan, but there’s a secret hero working from the shadows that could mean the difference between victory or defeat for this new version of Checkmate. Who is it? Find out when the debut issue of Event Leviathan: Checkmate hits comic book retailers and participating digital stores on Wednesday, April 22, 2020.
