Yesterday, Bleeding Cool broke the news that Marc Silvestri was coming to DC Comics to work on a Batman book to follow the upcoming Convergence event….
He's not going to be alone. Expect upheavals for a number of books with a mixture of star names, Hollywood names, familiar names and web comic creators being given the chance to mix it up on a number of DC properties, in the manner of Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Gotham Academy, and Gotham By Midnight. . With new books and relaunches aplenty.
But Marc Silvestri's Batman book, I am told, is going to be a new series. And as for those doubting how long he'll stay on the book, given his performance on Incredible Hulk a few years ago, I understand that Silvestri has been working on this comic book for quite some time. Indeed one source was surprised I'd only just heard about the project, as it was being talked about in San Diego.
Though this isn't the only big name Batman comic in the works. More as we have it…
