Weekly "Batman: Eternal" Coming this Spring

Somewhere, Rich Johnston is smiling.

USA Today confirmed that this spring will see the launch of a year-long (52!!!) weekly Batman series called Batman: Eternal, which will have Scott Snyder be the "show runner" of a series that will shape Batman and his allies place in the DCU. Joining him will be writers John Layman (hooray), James Tynion, Ray Fawkes and Tim Seeley (b-b-but, Catwoman?!) and Jason Fabok will be along for the ride, but I'm sure he's not going to be the only artist.

This sounds cool, but there are still some question marks. One would think "okay, maybe each writer will have an issue each week" but it sounds as if they'll go arc by arc? I don't know. But whatever, they got some talent on board for this.

To go along with this news, like Detective Comics #19 being the 900th issue, we're getting another celebration issue in January with Detective Comics #27, because, you know, Batman. The 104 page beast will have stories from Paul Dini, Brad Meltzer, Gregg Hurwitz and Peter Tomasi, with art from the likes of Neal Adams, Dustin Nguyen, and Francesco Francavilla. This issue will also see the beginning of John Layman and Jason Fabok's final Tec storyline "Gothamtopia" before the new team takes over in March.

Well, that's it for now. Bet we see a Superman weekly series too... and seriously, lets still put a new writer on Catwoman, shall we?

  1. Even though I do feel there are too many Batbooks already, I have to say I'm still excited for this based on the creators involved. They should still cancel The Dark Knight though.

    1. Agreed. There's room for a variety of Bat-books, but they better be good ones.

    1. :( Noticed that too. Imagine there was a new Nightwing? This is all too much after we lost Damien not too long ago.

  3. What are the chances that Nightwing gets added over Gordons shoulder after the forever evil fallout ends?

    1. Zero, the art is finished and Fabok posted the process on his blog

  4. Yeah, pretty much like everyone else, I'm super pumped for this, but at the same time am wondering where Nightwing is. 2014 is Batman's 75th Anniversary, but Dick's is 2015, and considering he was the first and one of two of the most recognizable Robins, as Nightwing was once one of the most popular heroes at a time, and was even Batman for a time while Grant Morrison was able to put him in the cape and cowl, Dick deserves a spot, too; He'll have been around for 74 years when this hits... Well, I guess I'll just have to enjoy Batman comics without him, read Kyke Higgins' work, and just hope Forever Evil doesn't do too much damage (if he breaks out and maybe, at the end, fights and defeats Owlman or Superwoman, then that would be awesome, especially if Nightwing ends up becoming DC's Hawkeye or Captain America, where he would work with A.R.G.U.S. And with various Justice League teams or his own team that he leads, while also patrolling and fighting crime in Chicago and maybe Gotham as well).

  5. i noticed the lack of nightwing in the cover as well, could't believe myself. actually spent 5 minutes on zoom looking for him. this makes me incredibly saddened =(
