Hey, here’s some more news from DC’s trip to Dallas for the ComicsPRO retailer conference, courtesy of their official blog The Source: artist Lee Bermejo is making his writing debut with Batman: Noel, an original graphic novel with a, wait for it, Christmas theme. Yep, he’s illustrating it as well. No release date has been set, but we’re guessing — and this is just a guess — around Christimas-time.
Bermejo is probably best known for his two high-profile collaborations with Brian Azzarello, 2005′s Lex Luthor: Man of Steel and 2008′s Joker. Says DC’s VP of art direction and design Mark Chiarello in DC’s blog post, “I knew Lee could deliver the goods artistically, but I never knew he was also this great of a writer!”
