When we announced there’d be a new creative team on GREEN LANTERN CORPS, one of the first questions people asked was “Where’s Pat Gleason going?” Well, we have an answer for you. Just be patient.
Oh, right. You have been patient. Well, then we’re happy to announce that the famed GREEN LANTERN CORPS team of writer Peter Tomasi and artist Patrick Gleason will be reuniting as the regular team for BATMAN AND ROBIN, starting in November.
What do these guys have in store for the dynamic duo? Peter?
“I'm incredibly excited to be working on BATMAN AND ROBIN! I mean who the hell wouldn't be?!? I've enjoyed my few forays into the Bat Universe with NIGHTWING, BATMAN: BLACKEST NIGHT, and BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS, and was always hoping I'd get a chance to tackle a main Bat book, so to be able to take the monthly reins from Grant on such a tremendous book is a dream come true and it's going to be a blast, especially when my partner in crime is artist Patrick Gleason, who I've had a great working relationship over in GREEN LANTERN CORPS!”
And if he didn’t seem excited enough, let’s pass the mic to Patrick:
"I can't wait to get started! Drawing Batman, Robin and Gotham city is something I've dreamt of sinking my teeth into for a very long time! Recently I've even had to start carrying around a sketchbook wherever I go because I constantly get these ideas of cool images, or random details that I want to use somewhere in the book.
I am incredibly grateful to DC for the opportunity to be added to the list of fine talent who have laid pen and pencil to the Dark Knight. Also I'm very happy to continue working with Peter Tomasi. With him at the helm you just know we're in good hands and Batman and Robin will continue to be a great ride!”
And before you start asking the question I know is on the tip of your tongue, here are a few words of advice: Wait a few days.
We have a few more announcements on tap, folks, so keep it tuned to The Source.
