David Finch To Write And Draw New Batman Ongoing Series

In October a one shot will be released  called Batman: The Return, written by Grant Morrison with art by David Finch, and then starting in November of 2011 Finch will be the writer and artist for the newly launching ongoing series Batman: The Dark Knight.

While Finch had much to say on the topic, here’s just an excerpt.

“Maybe the greatest thing about Batman is his versatility as a character. He can be so many things to so many people. For me though, the Neal Adams, Denny O’Neil issues from the early 70’s are the most definitive. That work casts a very long shadow over every Batman book that has come out since, and I think it’s a testament to its strength that close to 40 years later it remains modern and vital. Batman is at his best with his hands dirty, chasing the worst of the worst with everything on the line. He’s a detective, first and foremost. But he’s also the enforcer. Nobody gets away with crime under Batman’s watch, and he makes sure they think twice before they step over the line again.”

My only personal issue with this is having to wait until November of next year, as David Finch was born to draw Batman and I really don’t want to wait that long!
