Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch's The Batman's Grave To Be Collected, Done-In-One Hardcover

Warren Ellis, Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan are halfway through their series The Batman's Grave, and are going to take a planned month's publishing break to get caught up. But that break won't be reflected in the collection. Because, it appears, rather that twp 6-issue series, DC Comics will be going for the full twelve-issue collected hardcover.

The Batman's Grave: The Complete Collection written by Warren Ellis illustrated by Bryan Hitch – November 24th 2020

The World's Greatest Detective must try to inhabit the mind of a murder victim to solve a case–without filling the empty grave next to those of his parents. Can Batman imagine the life of a corpse with a half-eaten face without dying himself? A man was murdered, and the Batman is in his head–and he knows how it happened. All he has to do now is survive his own deduction. Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, one of the most legendary creative partnerships of the modern age, reunite in this tale about life, death and the questions most are too afraid to ask. Collects The Batman's Grave #1-12.

THere are a few other DC collections of note…

Harley Quinn & the Birds of Prey: The Hunt for Harley HC –  by Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, October 13th

Harley Quinn has been transformed, and she wants the world to know! She's ready to shake things up once more — and this time, the gloves are off! Harley Quinn has avoided Gotham City ever since she broke up with The Joker — she found a home, and a kind of family, in Coney Island. But when she gets an offer she can't refuse, she has no choice but to slip back into the city as quietly and quickly as she can, before anyone — especially her ex — learns she's been there. But for Harley, "as quietly as she can" is plenty loud…and before she can say "Holee bounty hunters, Batman," The Joker's sicced every super-villain in the city on her pretty ombré head! And she only has one hope — it's the only team tough enough (or crazy enough) to come to her defense — The Birds of Prey! Collects Harley Quinn & the Birds of Prey #1-4.
