Batman: Dark Moon Rising was a two-part Matt Wagner Batman event published between 2006 and 2007. It was composed of two six-issue miniseries, Batman and the Monster Men and Batman and the Mad Monk, both almost entirely created by Wagner. The stories are retellings of Golden Age Batman comics, and take place chronologically somewhere between Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Man Who Laughs. It serves as sort of a "Batman: Year 1.5."
Batman and the Monster Men is developed from an early Hugo Strange story from Batman #1. In Wagner's version, this is Batman's first encounter with Strange. The story depicts a young, optimistic Batman shortly after the events of Batman: Year One. Julie Madison, historically Bruce Wayne's love interest in early comics, is reintroduced in this series. This story is intended to depict the first time Hugo Strange is involved in creating violent giants out of human patients.
Batman must counter sinister machinations and new dimensions of wickedness as he confronts the hooded menace of the Mad Monk, his first encounter with a supernatural villain. He also must deal with the direct repercussions of the events in Batman and the Monster Men, and the Gotham mob.
