I'm not sure exactly why most of this issue happens, but it sure is cool.
In the wake of Grayson, Batwoman is the new Bat-related international adventures book.

Some Sean Murphy Batman Art
So, we've known for a bit that Sean Murphy is currently drawing something Batman related, but as to what specifically, we don't know. I initially thought he may be doing a in between issue of Batman like Becky Cloonan did, but that's obviously going to Andy Kubert. My next thought was that he could be doing some backups after Jock, but I'm really just going on his and Snyder's past collaboration, so that's just a stretch.
However, given the image above, the layout (granted, it could be cropped), unique looking Batmobile, and Alfred, I'm going to guess that this is from an upcoming stint on the digital/print Legends of the Dark Knight series. I've seen Rafael Albuquerque of American Vampire and Batman back-up fame also mention finishing art for LotDK, so I wouldn't be surprised if the digital wing of DC is really pushing for some bigger art talent like the launched the title with.
