Tomasi revealed the publisher’s plans to have him and Mahnke takeover the reins of DC’s namesake comic series at the Batman-centric panel for SDCC 2018. He indicated that they’ll be looking ahead to the landmark issue #1000, which is expected to hit stands within the next year.

Both Tomasi and Mahnke have recently lent their talents primarily to Superman titles in recent years, though both creators have a storied history working with the cosmic side of the DCU over in the Green Lantern/Green Lantern Corps comics. The duo previously tackled a tale of Batman in a well-received team-up issue of Batman & Robin in which the Caped Crusader took on an adventure with Frankenstein.
