But it does appear to leave a rather large gap in the DC Editorial offices for the Batman editor — and it appears it’s not one likely to be filled soon. Instead, those working as assistant or associate editors may be stepping up.
Chris Conway is the obvious choice for Detective Comics and/or Batman, though Jamie Rich is also a favorite. Rebecca Taylor is expected to edit Nightwing. But there are meetings happening all day at DC Comics in Burbank, so there may be some swapping going on.
As for Doyle, he and Scott Snyder are inseparable. Indeed, Doyle crossed coasts to keep working with him. They really are considered a dream team. I can’t imagine it’ll mean anything but more stuff between the pair, and there’s no reason Doyle couldn’t keep All-Star Batman and Metal on his docket, as well.
So we may not be getting one big Bat-editor name — at least not yet.
