We’ve been waiting a while. But today we got the first inkling…

We first reported that Marc Silvestri was working on a Batman comic back in 2014. But we understand it had already been a while in the telling.
Then it was to be part of DC Rebirth.

And then today at the DC Publishers panel (thanks to Bleeding Cool reporter Marcos Salinas) it all went official.
Batman/The Joker: Deadly Duo from Marc Silvestri. And DC Comics. Honest to goodness this time. Seven… and a half issues long apparently. Because Silvestri couldn’t help himself.
Here’s a look from long ago…
