Batman: Nosferatu

    (DC, 1999)
™ and ©1999 DC Comics

This sequel to Superman’s Metropolis is the second in a proposed trilogy of one-shots based on the great German expressionist films of the early twentieth century. As the story opens, the idle rich of Metropolis are under the spell of “The Cabinet of Dr. Arkham,” whose main attraction, “The Laughing Man,” predicts the violent deaths of his wealthy audience members. Only one who operates in the shadows beneath the city—Nosferatu the Bat-Man—seems capable of halting the murder spree, but what happens when the mysterious Bat-Man runs afoul of the glorious Super-Man, the savior of Metropolis? Find out in this tale that draws its inspiration from F.W. Murnau’s “Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors” and Robert Weine‘s “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” Also look for Wonder Woman: The Blue Amazon—based on Josef Von Sternberg’s “The Blue Angel” and Fritz Lang’s “Doctor Mabuse: The Gambler.
