Nick Derington may have recently finished his eleven issue run on Doom Patrol. But he’s pairing up with a new writer who is just as high profile as Gerard Way, in comics at least.
Derington is to draw Brian Bendis‘ upcoming Universe exclusive story for the DC 100-Page Giant Batman comic, exclusive to Walmart. And he even proffered a visual on Twitter….
the fact that @NickDerington is drawing the Batman story was accidentally omitted from the press release, so this is a @DCComics news exclusive!! Walmart! Batman: universe! 12 parts! Me and Derington! and tons of guest stars! including Green Arrow! pic.twitter.com/bBaqdqAFEU

The announcement of the Walmart deal continues to be the big news. But I understand that we are to receive even bigger DC Comics news before San Diego Comic-Con kicks off. And no, not the paper stock or the page numbers…
