Bait and Switch! Frank Miller Joining Tom King on Batman, Not in Batman

We've got some disappointing news for Millerbronies, the hardcore fans of legendary comic book creator Frank Miller. Despite implications to the contrary, Miller will not be providing interior artwork for an upcoming issue of Batman. Earlier this week, Batman writer Tom King posted a Miller-drawn image of Batman with the caption "coming up in Batman" on Twitter, causing fans to assume that Miller would be collaborating with King inside the comic.

Okay, our clickbait article about the topic might have helped spread that notion. But the tweet speaks for itself:

Coming up "in" Batman. But as it turns out, that Miller art won't be "in" Batman at all. Instead, it will be "on" Batman, more specifically, Batman #62, an issue with interior art by Mitch Gerads, as a variant cover. That means that art will be literally on the outside of the book.

We'd be mad about this bait-and-switch, except, it's hard to stay mad at Tom King when he's supplied us with not one but two clickbait articles about this same topic.

Batman #62 hits stores on January 9th. Final order cutoff is on Monday, so if you want a Batman comic with Frank Miller art *on* it — not in it — let your store know by then.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
