Here's what King had to say about the Swamp Thing/Catwoman switcheroo
That's on me. After solicits went out I decided I wanted this to be a 2 part catwoman story. Swamp Thing story was written but pushed back.
However something else that I've noticed that I want to share. Here's the solicit for Batman #20 by David Finch
“I am Bane” finale! In this epic climax, there is no going back. No more tricks, no more allies. Just Batman. And Bane. When the final blood spills…nothing will ever be the same for the Dark Knight.
Sounds epic right? except the next 2 issues will be about this:
“The Button”: Two greatest detectives in the DC Universe unite to unravel the mystery behind a certain blood stained smiley face button stuck in the Batcave wall. However, what begins as a simple investigation soon turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party — and it’s not who anyone suspects! This is a mystery woven throughout time, and the countdown starts here!
LMAO. However it doesn't end there, it seems that the Bane story will continue after "the button", here's what King had to say on Twitter.
Finch comes back for two issues, which'll blow minds. Then we launch an epic new story arc with Janin. It appears that "the button" is merely a rude momentum killer and those issues will apparently be shoehorned. I'm betting the 2 Finch issues will continue the story immediately after #20 and provide an epilogue to "I am Bane".
Oh wow really?
