DC have announced that in Spring 2014 they will be launching ‘Batman Eternal’, a weekly series featuring Scott Snyder as lead writer alongside Tim Seeley, James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes and several others. The first arc will be drawn by Jason Fabok.
Like with previous DC efforts like 52 and Countdown, Batman Eternal will run for a year, with Snyder credited as acting in a ‘showrunner’ capacity for the storyline. Snyder, talking about the project with Brian Truitt of USA Today, says:
It’s a place for me to be able to work with good friends in terms of shaping Gotham in a bigger, grander and more game-changing way than ever before.
And is also likely to be building on the fact that 2014 will see the 75th Anniversary of Batman, for which DC almost certainly have something big planned.
