The DC revamp titles news continues. Today (courtesy of IGN), we're getting some exciting news. It's all about Batman. It's almost crazy if you think about it, we will all have a chance to own Batman #1 and Detective Comics #1. Detective Comics is what brought about DC's name. Will this re-numbering stick? Honestly, that's not really the point right now. Let's just focus on what we're going to be getting.
Detective Comics #1 will have Tony Daniel doing both the writing and the art. Interesting that Daniel and Snyder are switching titles. Both Batman and Detective will feature Bruce Wayne as Batman. According to IGN, Bruce Wayne will be the only character wearing the Batman suit. That means, Batman Incorporated is finished?
Batman and Robin #1 will feature Bruce and Damian written by Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. Father and son fighting crime together. It should be really interesting to see how Damian works with his dad. He and Dick have started developing a good relationship and I wonder if Damian will follow orders better now.
Batman: The Dark Knight #1 will continue with David Finch. There's no assurance whether or not Finch's original story will see completion.
What else is there?== TEASER ==
Those were the official announcements. Bleeding Cool has shown images for an unconfirmed (so far) Catwoman #1 (art by GUillem March) along with Nightwing #1 (art by Eddy Barrows). Guess we know why Bruce is the only one wearing the Batman suit.
Here's some more images:
IGN has now reported that Batwing #1 will focus on the "first ever African-American character to don the mantle as the Batman of Africa." It will be written by Judd Winick with art by Ben Oliver. Does this mean Batman, Inc will still have some sort of relevance?
