DC Comics Announces Batman & Robin Eternal Weekly Book

We all knew that there would be another Batman weekly and while I heard whispers that it would be called "Eternal: Year Two", that is not the case.  Instead, fans will get six months of Batman & Robin Eternal starting on October 7th.



James Tynion IV will be the head writer with contributions from Scott Snyder, Tim Seeley, Geneveive Valentine, Steve Orlando, Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly and Ed Brisson.  Tony Daniel was announced as the lead artist with Paul Pelletier and Scot Eaton joining in as well.  Anybody who read Batman: Eternal (or Futures End and World's End for that matter) knows all about the revolving creative team concept of DC's weekly books.


No other information was released except the cover pictured here...which makes me wonder a bit about the story.  It looks like Bruce Wayne will be back in the cowl by then and my guess is this will be the story that "reintroduces" the very much alive Dick Grayson back into the DCU (or is it DC You?!?).  I'm glad to see that Harper Row will be back, but I also hope that Batgirl and Spoiler will be in it as well.  I know that I bitched and moaned for an entire year about reviewing Eternal, but after writing this up and looking at the cover image, I can't wait until October!

  1. Honestly the cover looks like Batman will not be part of the story initially. The left side suggests that it used to be Bruce and Dick but now it's Dick and the rest of the gang.

    1. That is an awesome call! I took it as maybe Dick working with Batman only at first and then getting back with the rest of the DCU later...but I like your theory better!

  2. I think I read somewhere that this will be 26 issues , which if it's true, then that's nice since hopefully they will spend less time with pointless filler and the plots will be more tighter than batman eternal

  3. I'm a little excited about this. Dream result for me: Dick returns to being Nightwing, and Calvin Rose makes an appearance.
