OFFICIAL – Dan DiDio Confirms James Tynion IV as New Batman Writer in 2020

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool told you that DC Comics would announce the new writer of their ongoing Batman comic book today, probably at the Barnes & Noble Union Square Batman Day event alongside Dan DiDio, Scott Snyder Brad Walker and Peter Tomasi.

Then we told you it would be Justice League writer and former Detective Comics writer, James Tynion IV.

And watched him do a subdued mini-victory dance.

Now all such things have come to pass.

James Tynion's first Batman will be #86, out in January 2020. The artists are yet to be named.

It will be an interesting Batmonth, coming out in the same month as Batman/Catwoman #1 by Tom King and Clay Mann, carrying on and concluding Tom King's storyline from Batman after he was fired from the main book. Will the two titles be in competition?

More as we hear it. Keep an eye with this Batman Day tag for more Bleeding Cool coverage.
