DC Announces New Weekly Batman Comic Series


2014 is going to be a big year for Batman, as it will be his 75th anniversary, and one way DC plans to celebrate is by having a new year-long weekly series called Batman: Eternal. The new series was announced today over at USAToday.com, and will be overseen by Scott Snyder and will feature a variety of different writers like James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes and Tim Seeley. The only artist announced so far is Jason Fabok. Scott Snyder spoke about what we can expect to see in this new title, and here is a bit of what he had to say:


"It's a place for me to be able to work with good friends in terms of shaping Gotham in a bigger, grander and more game-changing way than ever before. We're gonna give you the biggest, craziest and most fun stuff we've done on the book and in the world of Gotham."


"We want this to be a place where you get to tell a story about anything you want in Gotham, so long as we're also moving this big story forward in the background."


"You'll see bombastic arcs as well but there'll be plenty of room for Ray to explore some of the darker, more mystical aspects of Gotham that he loves or Tim to explore some of the crime we haven't seen before."

    This reminds me of the interview you guys did with Scott Snyder a year or two ago not too long after the New 52 began and he was talking about his love for Gotham, it's history, and the extent to which the city is a character all its own.  I'm hopeful for this and think we can get a lot of different stories and characters that flesh out things we don't see in other titles.
