Green Arrow, Robin and Manhunter prepare to fight back in Leviathan Dawn #1 preview

Leviathan has been a threat in DC Comics for awhile. Grant Morrison introduced the concept during his Batman run, but Brian Michael Bendis completely flipped it in Event Leviathan. With that initial mini-series over, Bendis continues the story in an all-new special, Leviathan Dawn.

This one-shot explores what happens now that the DC heroes know the identity of the threat behind Leviathan. I’m curious how this will play in to what’s currently going on in Action Comics as Leviathan is contemplating an alliance with Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom. If nothing else I’m glad Leviathan is providing some form of a showcase for Green Arrow, a character who I thought would be the ideal fit for Bendis to write.

Exploding out of the pages of Event Leviathan, this all-new special, Leviathan Dawn #1, blasts the DC Universe into a dangerous and brave new future! With Leviathan arrived, its leader’s identity revealed, and its plans known, what happens next? The heroes fight back!


Leviathan changed the rules of the game, so now’s the time for the biggest players to get together and figure out a new strategy in this brave new world. Leviathan Dawn is an extra-sized super-spy yarn from the Eisner Award-winning team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev! It all sets the stage for the next chapter of Bendis and Maleev’s deadly saga, Event Leviathan: Checkmate!
