October 12th, 2012, Mt. Laurel, NJ – The iconic character, Black Bat, makes his return to comics with a Dynamite series, written by Brian Bucccellato, the current acclaimed co-writer of DC Comics’ The Flash!  Black Bat joins a long-line of successful pulp relaunches at Dynamite, and this series guarantees to be just as successful.  Look for Black Bat in 2013!

“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to put my stamp on classic character whose origin dates back to the time of such greats as The Shadow, The Phantom, and The Green Hornet,” says writer Brian Buccellato.  “The Black Bat had the misfortune of sharing the same monicker as arguably the most beloved superhero of all time. Interestingly though, he was a contemporary of and not a copycat or “rip-off” of The Dark Knight. Tony Quinn’s origin and motivations were very unique to him. In fact, his origin and costume design influenced some VERY well-known comic characters that came after him.”

In July 1939 Ned Pines’ Thrilling Publications (also known as Standard or Better) introduced a new Black Bat in a series called Black Book Detective. Written mainly by Norman Daniels under the house name G. Wayman Jones, the stories describe the crime-fighting career of former District Attorney Anthony Quinn. In a clear departure from most pulp characters and heroes, this Black Bat was actually an origin story, describing how Quinn became the Black Bat after being blinded and disfigured by acid.  DA Tony Quinn is blinded by acid and believes his career is over until Carol Baldwin arrives. She tells him that her father is a small town policeman who is dying from a gangster’s bullet and that a surgeon is willing to perform an operation to graft his corneas onto Tony Quinn’s eyes so that he can see again. The operation is done in secret and when the bandages are removed, Quinn finds that he can not only see normally but can even see perfectly in darkness too.
