DC Plans New Batman Comics Due This Spring

Alas, Batman returns! And no, I’m not talking about the movie from 1992.

According to the Associated Press, DC Entertainment is planning to bring back a weekly Batman comic book in honor of the superhero’s 75th anniversary. Due next spring, DC’s creative team says the comics will “take Batman into 2015.”

In addition to the new weekly comics, DC also plans to release a “retelling” of “Detective Comics” No. 27, the first comic book in which Bruce Wayne appears. The original was released in 1939. But DC is hoping to modernize it, as Brad Meltzer explains.

The issue, out Jan. 8, will also lay the framework for new creative team Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, who take over the book in the spring.”We want to bring him closer to his roots and be more of a street-level type of hero,” [Manapul said about their plans. “His super heroics will still be present, but the investigative part of Batman will be at the forefront.”
