Artist Stjepan Sejic is working on a new Batman project for DC Black Label.
Sejic revealed the project, which is currently unnamed, in a tweet. He answered several follow-up questions, revealing the project would be for DC Black Label and that he'd be on for the whole series, which is "3 oversized 60 page issues." Most commenters pointed out that the character looks like a combination of Man-Bat and Batman. The character does also bear a resemblance to Earth-43's Bat-Man, a vampiric version of the Dark Knight.
