BAT­MAN: WHITE KNIGHT PRESENTS: VON FREEZE #1

THE White Knight comics have cher­ryp­icked de­tails from the many ver­sions of the Bat­man story. This is the first to tell its own, weav­ing its dark magic on the very night of Bruce Wayne’s birth.

As Martha Wayne strug­gles in labour, Dr Vic­tor Fries dis­tracts a dis­tressed Thomas Wayne with the in­cred­i­ble tale of his fa­ther fig­ures – one a Nazi, the other a Jew – and their con­nec­tion to Wayne Lab­o­ra­to­ries.

As the Third Re­ich rises, the friend­ship be­tween Baron von Fries and Ja­cob Smith­stein, is in cri­sis as the SS be­gins to breath down their necks.

Writ­ten by Sean Mur­phy, with art by Klaus Jan­son Von Freeze, #1 is out now priced £5.40

RES 3 RE­MAKE

JUST as Cap­com sur­prised us all with a Res­i­dent Evil 2 re­make at the start of 2019, it looks like it could be about to do the same with Res­i­dent Evil 3.

Cap­com has re­port­edly been work­ing on a re­make of the 1999 sur­vival hor­ror, tagged Res­i­dent Evil 3: Neme­sis and we could see it re­leased as early as 2020.

With all the hard work that went in to Res 2, it’s not a leap to say de­vel­op­ers could be us­ing the same en­gine and ba­sic me­chan­ics for Neme­sis.

Hor­ri­fy­ingly good news for the New Year.

TRAV­EL­LING INTO THE FU­TURE

THE trailer for the 12th se­ries of Doc­tor Who may have just been re­leased, but work is al­ready well un­der­way for se­ries 13.

Fans have been treated to a smat­ter­ing for teasers from the new se­ries, which sees Jodie Whit­taker’s Doc­tor joined by com­pan­ions Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill, and Tosin Cole, in­set.

While the new se­ries is due to air in early 2020, se­ries showrun­ner and head writer Chris Chib­nall said the wheels are ‘very much in mo­tion’ for se­ries 13.

Speak­ing to the Ra­dio Times, he said he and his team are al­ready plot­ting ideas and sto­ry­lines for where to take the Doc­tor and her friends in 2021 and be­yond.
