In the wake of our announcement of a historic line of new #1's within the Batman family, many of you noticed that while several of the titles and characters spun out of the Batman, Inc. storyline, there was no mention of that series itself - but there's a reason for that: Grant Morrison's BATMAN, INCORPORATED series will return with a new issue #1 in early 2012. Grant Morrison had this to say about Batman, Incorporated:
After a tenure as the Batman of Gotham, Dick Grayson resumes his mantle as Nightwing! As Dick embraces his identity, Haley's Circus, the big top where he once performed with his family, returns to Gotham - bringing with it a history of murder, mystery and superhuman evil. Nightwing must confront friends and enemies from his past as he searches for the source of an even greater evil.
