Batman's confronted his share of mad gods, monsters and crono displacement over the past few years, and it looks like even "The Return of Bruce Wayne" won't slow his exposure to the supernatural as David Finch prepares to unleash new challenges to the Caped Crusader in November's new "Batman: The Dark Knight" ongoing.

Finch is taking the reigns as both writer and artist on the title (which is unrelated to Chrisopher Nolan's 2008 film) and DC's The Source has the full skinny straight from the creator:

"'The Dark Knight' takes Batman outside what he knows, into a world of demonology, dark arts, and mystery. He's the ultimate detective, faster, stronger and smarter than any villain, but now he faces creatures to whom logic and mortality don't apply.

I want 'Dark Knight' to be true to Batman's street level, crime fighter roots. He'll face a rogues gallery that we're all familiar with, but this book will take him on a darker path where he'll be stretched to his physical and psychological limits."
