Batman is one of the comics that will going bi-weekly at DC Comics, after the big relaunch, this summer.
Look for its writer for the last five years, Scott Snyder to change his plans as a result, to leave the title that made him an A-List comic book superstar and start writing – the secondary Batman title at the publisher – Detective Comics.
It’s the comic Scott wrote for DC Comics before Batman, the title that originated the character back in the thirties, and that still stars Batman. But it tries to (occasionally) tell different kinds of stories.
Detective Comics will remain a monthly title. The decision to switch books is more likely to be remove Snyder from the event driven nature of some modern comics and of the pressure of writing the lead Batbook, and DC’s bestselling title. He will be more able to do as he pleases with he character.
Here’s the bigger question though; with Scott Snyder on board, will Detective Comics start to outsell Batman?
And then what?
