The new team will begin their run with January’s Batman #86. As DC previously revealed, the series will shift to a monthly shipping schedule, with Batman/Catwoman effectively taking the place of that second issue each month.
“I loved writing stories for [Batman] Eternal, Detective Comics, and even Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but my desire to tell a Batman story, one focusing solely on Bruce Wayne instead of an ensemble, is what drove me back to the Batcave,” said Tynion in a statement. “I want to dig deep into the Bat himself and tell an epic story that pushes him to his absolute limits. I want to tell a Batman story like the kinds I grew up loving, one that embraces the horror and gothic elegance of Gotham and dives deep into Batman’s greatest villains.”
“I’ve been fortunate to have contributed quite a bit of my work to Batman over the last twelve years, from working with Grant Morrison on Batman R.I.P. to writing Batman myself to working with Tom King over the last year,” said Daniel. “Each run was amazing and special in its own way. I’m super excited to work with James Tynion IV, and I’m even more excited about what we have in store for Bat-fans everywhere this January.”
Batman #86 will release on January 8, 2020. For more on the current state of the series, find out the latest development with Batman and Catwoman’s controversial romance, and learn about how Bane just dealt Batman another shocking blow.
