We’re celebrating Batman’s 75th Anniversary all year long, but look for things to shift into a new gear next week with the release of Batman Eternal #1, the first issue of the brand new weekly comic series focused on the Dark Knight and his friends and foes in Gotham. As you can imagine, it’s not easy producing a weekly comic book series, and the challenge is even greater when the series stars one of the most popular super heroes ever created.

Comic book fans have a lot to look forward to today with New York Comic-Con kicking off in just a few hours. And just in time for the show, USA TODAY made a few announcements that’ll surely be the talk of the convention amongst fans of the Dark Knight!
Launching next spring, BATMAN ETERNAL is an all-new weekly series that comes to you from “showrunner” and BATMAN writer, Scott Snyder, along with writers James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, and Tim Seeley, and artist Jason Fabok.
Ever since its debut in 1937, DETECTIVE COMICS has been a staple of the DC Universe. Responsible for introducing the world to iconic characters such as Batman, Robin and Batgirl, it’s no wonder that DC Comics is pulling out all the stops by making this month’s issue of the series a special 80-page spectacular to celebrate a very important milestone for the series.
