Busiek Working On’Secret Identity’ Sequel Featuring Batman… Not Superman

Saw this story over on Newsarama:

Newsarama: Kurt, is it true that you’ve got a sequel to Superman: Secret Identity coming out?

Kurt Busiek: I’d say “it’s in the works” more than coming out. It’ll come out eventually. But yeah, we’re doing a follow-up to Superman: Secret Identity. It’s not exactly a sequel, because it doesn’t follow the same characters or even take place in the same world.

Nrama: But it follows the same general theme?

Busiek: Yes. I call it a thematic sequel. It’s a natural companion book. Superman: Secret Identity is about a young man named Clark Kent in a world where Superman is a comic book character. Batman: Creature of the Night is about a young man named Bruce Wainwright in a world where Batman is a comic book character. And both of them get involved in fantasy adventure scenarios that involve these characters.

But where Superman: Secret Identity was much more about self-identity and science fiction, Batman: Creature of the Night is a lot more about horror and dark things, because… he’s Batman!

Skitch Commentary: This sounds great! Superman: Secret Identity is easily one of my favorite mini-series, and this definitely is something I would love to read. Make this happen, DC!
