Francis Manapul And Brian Buccellato’s Next DC Comic Is… Detective Comics

francisYesterday we reported that John Layman was writing a new DC comic book, to be announced at NYCC. We also said that he’d continue to write Detective Comics. Well, we think we’re right about the first part. But not about the second.

Because the comic that Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato are leaving The Flash to work on… is Detective Comics. Manapul and Buccellato made Flash a very art-focused book, channeling the experimentation of Will Eisner and it’s hoped they’ll do the same with Batman.

Don’t feel sorry for Layman though, like I said, he’s working on something new for DC to be announced next week, and he’s always been more comfortable writing two-and-a-bit comics a month. And you wouldn’t want Chew to go away, would you?

As for Detective Comics‘ artist Jay Fabok, I don’t know. I’m sure a home has been found…
