DC Comics Universe, Post Dark Nights Metal and June 2018 Solicitation Spoilers follow.

New Detective Comics Creative Team Bringing Back Batman and The Outsiders?

We saw them in Dark Nights Metal (full spoilers here), but will a new iteration debut in 2018?

Den of Geek reports:

      …the next writer of Detective Comics, will be Bryan Hill, taking over from James Tynion IV, who has been steering the title since Rebirth. Hill is currently working on The Wild Storm: Michael Cray, spinoff of The Wild Storm where a more grounded Deathblow travels the Wildstorm universe murdering evil, scumbag Justice League analogs. It is as fun as it sounds.

      …Detective Comics isn’t Hill’s only upcoming DC project. It was also recently announced that Hill will be teaming up with Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz on Who the Hell Cares, You Should Just Buy It Because It Will Be Great starring Black Lightning and Hong Kong Phooey. Coincidentally, Hill will be bringing Jefferson Pierce (aka Black Lightning) with him to the pages of Detective Comics.

      Hill will take over starting with Detective Comics #982 for a five-issue arc called “On the Outside,” which will kick off in June.

The solicitations and cover follow.
