SDCC 2010: And now…BATMAN INC.

By DCE Editorial Friday, July 23rd, 2010
Remember when we told you to sit tight for another BATMAN announcement? Well, here it is. As revealed on the BATMAN panel at San Diego Comic-Con, writer Grant Morrison will be helming a new, ongoing Batman series: BATMAN INC., featuring art by the ultra-talented Yanick Paquette. What does the “INC.” stand for? How will this new series build upon the amazing stories Grant has crafted in the pages of BATMAN and BATMAN AND ROBIN? All will be revealed shortly on the BATMAN San Diego Comic-Con panel, as Grant shares a few details about the new series, talks about his overarching Batman story and teases BATMAN: THE RETURN, the issue that leads into the new ongoing. It’s not an understatement to say Grant’s vision for the Dark Knight and his world has been an epic, evolving and all-encompassing tale. One that has not only put Batman – both Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson – through the ringer, but also redefined what the legend of the Batman means to those around him. With BATMAN INC., Grant Morrison inverts the expected and presents a huge element of the unexpected to the Batman mythos, presenting a Batman status quo that is both new and energizing while at the same time remarkably familiar. We caught up with BATMAN Group Editor Michael Marts for some thoughts on what’s to come. Mike? “Everything’s been leading to this. Bruce Wayne made his long journey home in THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE. Then Gotham City’s protector came back in BATMAN: THE RETURN. Now comes BATMAN INC.--the next phase of the Dark Knight as only mastermind writer Grant Morrison could imagine it. Joined on art by Yanick Paquette, this brand-new monthly series starring Batman and an unexpected supporting cast is sure to shock and surprise!”
