    I’m writing a Batman story with the incredible Ryan Sook on art.

    The announcement is here.

    The Batman thing is digital-first, and the creator lineup is excellent. Damon Lindelof, Ben Templesmith, J.G. Jones, Gabriel Hardman, Chris Sprouse…

    Writing Batman felt like meeting an old friend. Our story is directly connected to the events of Miller’s and Mazzucchelli’s ‘Batman: Year One’, specifically chapters one and two. There will be some Easter Eggs, but the story stands firmly on its own.

    Here’s Ben Templesmith’s Batman/Joker mash-up:

    Let me just be the first to say that I'm stupidly jealous, you bastard.

    ...Also congratulations.

    Felicitations, sir!

    I imagine writing Batman as a kind of dream project.

    I wrote a Batman fan-fic once.*

    (*It was a slash-fic involving the Joker and Robin. DC told me to never send them anything ever again.)

    Congrats sir!
