If you’d been reading our Liveblog of the Justice League panel, you’d already know this, but it’s The Batman Who Laughs, a 6 issue mini-series written by Snyder and drawn by Jock.  It spins out of Justice League and debuts in November.  (Although, technically it’s a Metal spin-off)

From our Liveblog:

– The Batman Who Laughs is coming back and he’s got a big plan, and he’s bringing a new Dark Knight with him – another evil version of Bruce. A version of Batman where Bruce kills Joe Chill with his own gun the night his parents were killed. A Punisher who isn’t broke.

Update – Official PR from DC:

Today’s DC Justice League panel at San Diego Comic-Con featured a host of talent from the “New Justice” family of titles: JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSSEY, TEEN TITANS and TITANS. New Justice architect and JUSTICE LEAGUE writer Scott Snyder was on hand to talk with fans about his current run, including the creation of the Legion of Doom, Sinestro’s discovery of the Ultraviolet Spectrum and Lex Luthor dispatching Vandal Savage with a doorknob. 

But he really stirred the crowd’s interest with the announcement that he would be teaming up with artist Jock to create a six-issue miniseries based on the popular character from DARK NIGHTS: METAL, The Batman Who Laughs. Scheduled for November, this is a story Snyder has been eager to write, featuring two of his favorite characters. This six-issue miniseries pits Batman against the culmination of all his fears from the Dark Multiverse, an evil amalgamation of himself and his greatest nemesis, The Joker.
