The British edition of Batman comic published reaches 50 issues this week and celebrates with a cover by Chris Burnham. Here's the PR directly from the publisher, Titan Comics...
Welcome to the 50th issue of Batman! Yes, we’ve reached our half-century of issues! Inside, you’ll find three thrilling stories about the Dark Knight.

All for just £3.50!
Batman – ‘Superheavy' – Part 9’
Inspired by recent events, Bruce Wayne realizes who he really is, and insists on gaining entry to the Batcave. But even if Alfred lets him in, is he prepared for what he’ll find? And how far will Bruce go to reclaim his identity as the Batman?
Legends of the Dark Knight – ‘I, Batman’
We take a break from Robin, Son of Batman for an issue, to bring you a special one-off tale! When another Dark Knight begins intervening in street violence in Gotham City, Batman finds himself facing a doppelganger with a difference! Featuring the Joker, Killer Croc and Clayface!
Batman Eternal – ‘City of Whispers’
As riots break out across Gotham City, Batman and his new assistant Julia Pennyworth try to keep things under control. Meanwhile, the rest of the Bat family do their bit to keep order on the streets, but Commissioner Jason Bard has his own ideas on how to take back control!
You'll find Batman No.50 in WH Smith (if you're lucky. My local branch dropped it two months ago, despite it selling well.) Or you can subscribe here:
