While talking with CBR News on Batman Day, DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee not only explained why he’s so happy Bill Finger is now receiving co-creator credit for Batman, or why he’s excited for the long-simmering “Batman: Europa” to be released. The legendary artist also revealed that after years of anticipation and fan speculation, he and Frank Miller just might to return to their Dark Knight epic, “All Star Batman & Robin.”
“Frank is super excited to be working in comics again. This is not going to be his last project for DC,” Lee said when asked whether there were any plans for him and Miller to re-team to finish their story “I would love to get back on [‘All Star Batman & Robin’] and close it out. He’s got a great ending to the story and a really cool final scene that was described to me that is just classic.
“You know, when I worked on ‘All Star Batman & Robin,’ I was just coming off of maybe four or five years of just working on Batman, and I just kind of hit a wall with it,” Lee continued, explaining what happened on his end when the series initially faded away. “But now that I’ve taken a break from it — and certainly while working on ‘Batman: Europa’ — it’ll be kind of cool to jump back on and finish out. At the end of the day, you really want a nice trade and collection edition that tells the whole story, and I would love to finish that. That’ll be fantastic.”
