DC has announced a new Batman and The Outsiders seires from writer Bryan Edward Hill and artist Dexter Soy. This is following the Dectective Comics run from Bryan Edward Hill that featured Black Lightning.
The new team will consist of Batman, Katana, Black Lightning, Orphan, and The Signal.
“All I’ll say is, it is a team book with Batman in it, but the safety is off,” Hill said the Washington Post. “Hopefully it will be surprising and thrilling in ways that I don’t think people will quite expect. I’m becoming known a bit for a certain kind of intensity in my work, and I think this Outsiders project will also continue on in that pathway.”
Will we see the return of other members of The Outsiders like Thunder, Grace Choi, Geoforce, Halo, and Arsenal? That remains to be seen. Either way, this is one of the best announcements I’ve heard all day.
