NYCC 2017 and DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers follows.
During New York Comic Con 2017 (NYCC 2017) it was revealed that writer Scott Snyder with artist Sean Gordon Murphy will work on Batman: Last Knight in 2018.
Snyder noted that “I want it to be my last Batman story for a long time.” In addition Murphy later indicated this would be his last collaboration noting that “After this book, I’m retiring from working with writers” to allow him to focusing on projects he can be the writer and artist like Batman: White Knight.
Snyder teased the story by indicating that “Batman suddenly wakes up and he’s … young, but he wakes up in this post-apocalyptic wasteland, crawling out of the sand in this Gotham City that’s been ruined. He’s got the Joker’s head chained to his belt, but it’s alive and like ‘You gotta move, kid!’ It’s got old Wonder Woman, Baby Superman — it’s like my Lone Wolf and Cub Batman story… So this isn’t really a death, but this is a closing a chapter in my version of Batman.”
No 2018 release date was revealed for Batman: Last Knight.
