A little like what Marvel Legacy have been doing — and what DC Comics have done with Action Comics and Detective Comics.

Antonio Salvador Daniel, known professionally as Tony Daniel or Tony S. Daniel, is an American comic book writer and artist, known for his work on various books for DC Comics, including Teen Titans, Flash: The Fastest Man Alive and Batman.
Daniel worked on various titles with Image Comics including his own creation The Tenth, butgained status at DC Comics with his run on Teen Titans with writer Geoff Johns. He also finished out the short lived Flash: The Fastest Man Alive series with Marc Guggenheim, which ended with Bart Allen’s death.
From there, Daniel began his work for the main Batman title with writer Grant Morrison. He and Morrison collaborated on the major Batman R.I.P. storyline, then wrote and illustrated Battle for the Cowl, dealing with the story’s aftermath.
After Judd Winick and Mark Bagley’s four-issue run on Batman, Tony Daniel took over for a six-issue arc handling both writing and art duties. Daniel worked with Grant Morrison again on issue #701-702 and returned as writer and artist starting in November 2010. Shortly after, Daniel was announced as the writer and artist of the relaunched Detective Comics. In addition, he was announced as the writer of DC’s Savage Hawkman series. Following this, he was subsequently announced as the primary artist accompanying Andy Diggle on Action Comics, following Grant Morrison’s departure.
