In the aftermath of tragedy, the human mind is compelled to ask “Why?” Lacking a good reason–a malevolent agent for our woes–the mind turns inward and assigns meaning. Or you could do like Two-Face and embrace the chaos. Fate, chance…no real difference. Where Batman imposes his own narrative on Gotham’s seedy crime stories by changing their ending, Two-Face skates the kinetic plane that exists before his coin lands. Bound by a lifetime of suppression, he is now liberated by his determinism. In short, he stared tragedy in the eye and admitted no can make heads or tails of it.
Thankfully, the same isn’t true of the comic starring the two. In the latest issue of riter Peter Tomasi–who never gets enough praise for delivering quality story and ace characterization–teams up with the textured grit of artist Patrick Gleason to bring you a crossroads of vendettas in a graveyard. And we’ve got the exclusive preview from Two-Face’s ongoing origin.
