Batman: The Blades of Set, Part 1-Ankh by Dkalban Batman: The Blades of Set, Part 1-Ankh by Dkalban
A new adventure as Batman takes on ancient magics and those who would wield them. When a routine patrol is interrupted by a strange explosion. When Batman and Robin investigates, they come face to face with ancient horror. Also, an old love comes back into Bruce Wayne's life...

Part of the idea behind this is to write a tale where my OCs, Joseph and Sam Kane, are firmly supporting characters instead of being more to the forefront. Part of it was just to write a new "mini".

Julie Madison, for those of you not in the know, was Bruce Wayne's first girlfriend (and damsel in distress) in the comics. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_Ma… This is my own quasi New 52 take on her. She will be Bruce's prep school girlfriend who went on to fame and fortune in the movies. Picture Catherine Zeta Jones crossed with Elizabeth Taylor in her heyday.

Plus this story allows me to do a few things. 1. it lets me use my love of Ancient Egypt (which I've had since I was a kid) for this tale. 2. it allows me to write an old fashioned pulp like story. 3. It let's me clear up some mistaken ideas about Egyptian myth. 4. It let's me use Felix Faust, who is always an interesting baddie.

The cover image was compiled by me in (of all things) PowerPoint. I'll keep the Arkham City Batman bit, I'll just switch out the background each time ;)

This will be, at least, a three or four part story.

Enjoy!

Joseph Kane/Operator and Sam Kane belong to me

Batman, Robin, et al belong to DC Comics

Setting up the first meeting with Zatanna eh? Seems a mummy case is as good as any to start a romance, talking of which we have Bruce's old flame...or rather a first flame...yes I know the story and I am impressed you wish to have a go at it. Now I know of Faust, I've played DCUO so I have a layman's knowledge of the sort of thing to expect...and I'm looking forward to it...good man Danny boy!

Yep :D Now I need to write part 2 XD

Yep, his first love interest in the comics! :D

I've had to research him a bit to make sure I'm quasi accurate to N52 continuity. While he may be more emaciated than I described him, it's pretty accurate.

Thanks :D
