Tom King Explains Why He Isn't Writing Part of the Batman/Flash Crossover

Tom King Explains Why He Isn’t Writing Part of the Batman/Flash Crossover

Posted by November 20, 2018 Comment

Yesterday, DC’s February solicits revealed a new 4-part crossover between Batman and The Flash, dealing with fallout from the Heroes in Crisis super-mega-crossover event. And as we noted, Batman writer Tom King, who is smack dab in the middle of a planned hundred-issue run on Batman, is nowhere to be found, with Flash writer Joshua Williamson writing all four issues.

King to Twitter to explain that the reason he’s not writing the books is to take time to work on a secret TV project.

So don’t worry, Tom King fans, King isn’t skipping town to avoid dealing with the fallout from Heroes in Crisis. Of course, whether he might skip town to become a global entertainment superstar if the TV gig works out, well, that will remain to be seen. We definitely would. But either way, you’re getting those 105 issues of Batman as promised.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
