And the Bat goes on: readers already knew that Scott Snyder is taking over Detective Comics in November with Jock on art (interview with both here), and that Snyder would also be writing a Commission Gordon back-up co-feature on the book. What we didn’t know was the identity of the artist, but as DC’s official blog The Source broke Friday afternoon, it’s Francesco Francavilla.
The blog post says that the co-feature leads into a “greater story Snyder is telling,” and also quotes both the writer and artist on the upcoming run on the legendary comic book cop. This news marks an already busy day of announcements for Batman-family titles, along with Dustin Nguyen being named the new Batgirl artist, and more details on the upcoming Batwoman ongoing series.
Francavilla is known to DC/Wildstorm fans for his work on Garrison; his official site is here.
