The DC revamp titles news continues. Today (courtesy of IGN), we're getting some exciting news. It's all about Batman. It's almost crazy if you think about it, we will all have a chance to own Batman #1 and Detective Comics #1. Detective Comics is what brought about DC's name. Will this re-numbering stick? Honestly, that's not really the point right now. Let's just focus on what we're going to be getting.

Batman #1 will be written by the great Scott Snyder (hot of the pages of Detective Comics) along with art by Greg Capullo (who is known for working on Spawn and Haunt).

Detective Comics #1 will have Tony Daniel doing both the writing and the art. Interesting that Daniel and Snyder are switching titles. Both Batman and Detective will feature Bruce Wayne as Batman. According to IGN, Bruce Wayne will be the only character wearing the Batman suit. That means, Batman Incorporated is finished?

Batman and Robin #1 will feature Bruce and Damian written by Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. Father and son fighting crime together. It should be really interesting to see how Damian works with his dad. He and Dick have started developing a good relationship and I wonder if Damian will follow orders better now.

Batman: The Dark Knight #1 will continue with David Finch. There's no assurance whether or not Finch's original story will see completion.

What else is there?

== TEASER ==

Those were the official announcements. Bleeding Cool has shown images for an unconfirmed (so far) Catwoman #1 (art by GUillem March) along with Nightwing #1 (art by Eddy Barrows). Guess we know why Bruce is the only one wearing the Batman suit.

Here's some more images:

Detective Comics #1
Detective Comics #1

Update

IGN has now reported that Batwing #1 will focus on the "first ever African-American character to don the mantle as the Batman of Africa." It will be written by Judd Winick with art by Ben Oliver. Does this mean Batman, Inc will still have some sort of relevance?

I love that Damian is around and that there is a Bruce and Damian book. Still worried that the end of Batman inc has been tampered with.

As long as Morrison isn't shafted, I have no reason not to be absolutely thrilled with these announcements. Though I kinda hope that Bruce is with Talia, Selina or Zatanna in this reboot. Lonely Bruce is awesome, but relationship Bruce is a nice change. 
 
All in all;
 
**** YES!

F*** SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!! DIck (as Batman) and Damien should not be ruined. So sad. Why does Morrison's work always get un-done. In fairness, this company wide re-boot is good for DC but BAtman was the only one that was fine. angry now

I suppose with the reboot of the entire DC comics, things were going to change. It should be no surprise.

if anyone read the article is says that Morrison is still involved and that they'll announce something later this week.  They also said things will be released throughout the day.  I'm sure we'll hear about Tim soon enough

Well I guess Detective has come to an end and is being renumbered too. Darn that's too bad, of all DC books I would have thought it should have the distinction of at least getting to #900.  Really makes me wonder if this is going to be a lasting trend to be honest.  Guess we'll just have to see! So far it looks great though. So far...

I REALLY don't know what to say. 
Sure this reboot has it's pros... but when I think about Batman and the AWESOME books it's been releasing nowadays... I just can't help but see the cons. I just hope they now what they're doing. I mean cmon?! No more current continuities for Batman Inc, Batman and Robin, Streets of Gotham and Detective Comics?! Madness...

I don't see how there can not be continuity because they're going to have Damian as Robin.  As awesome as Dick was as Batman (I was a big fan) it would have either been him dying and Bruce returning to full time duty or him returning to being Nightwing.  I prefer him as Nightwing.

Batman Inc can still live on. It's not like El Gaucho, Dark Ranger, Knight & Squire were wearing Batman costumes. They each had their own unique look.

Its a RELAUNCH. not reboot. DC VP confirmed it. But apparently this isnt news to comicvine because they "called" it.

Im going to say it again. Its not a reboot. reLAUNCH.
 
 
Can someone from ComicVine please report that it is in fact a ReLAUNCH and not a reboot?
People have been bashing the idea on this site because they didnt know it was a relaunch.

I like that DC recognizes the great work Snyder has been doing and promoted him to the "Batman" title.  It's going to be interesting to see whether or not Jock really helped his story though.  I like Tony Daniel, but I would still prefer him to just draw, maybe it's a good thing he's doing Detective though.

I know, I'm in agreement with you.  It seems that people hear "relaunch" and it automatically means reboot.  They're relaunching the titles, it's not really anything new, it's just the fact that they're doing the entire line at once.

The look is actually starting to grow on me.  I thought it was weird without the blue but it works, it's a redesign.  I'm fine with it, it could also just be a cover art to draw you in.   
 
I assume Tim is still going to be Red Robin.  DC wouldn't get rid of him, at least I hope not.

Geoff Johns said some time had passed in the GL universe so i assume this is like Year One again but with more adjustments to characters.

While I did like Dick as Batman, it does make sense what they're doing, plus Dick knew it was only temporary... 
 
Looking forward to Batman #1...

Thank God I can finally start reading Batman again, the only thing worse than having Dick as Batman was having several people as Batman, how can you have a personal feud or relationship with someone if there are several people under the same mask, also having Batman smile and use witty one liners destroyed all the darkness, fear, and respect Batman has built up over the years, Batman was a human that walked among gods and demanded their respect, that ended as soon as Greyson put on the suit, if I wanted to read about an A-list super hero that used goofy one liners I would read Spider-man, please DC, please keep Morrison as far away from Batman as possible!!!!

The new Nightwing uniform looks good. I dig the red. I wonder if Morrison will still be doing something Batman, or if he's just going to he doing Superman. Also, am I the only one who liked the last Bruce design with the glowing yellow oval? I thought it was rad. Oh well,color me

@jlat89 Well it certainly isn't drawing me in. I mean, it just looks to metallic :( And I hope you're right about Tim... Yeah... They can't just get rid of him, he's become too valuable as a part of the Bat Family, well, in my opinion at least...

I stopped reading in the Two-Face storyline when Dick was smiling at at camera's and letting the media get all kinds of photos of him, he was also talking about ditching the cape at one point also.

Most of these instances occurred under Morrison's pen. Morrison is the best Batman writer ever. The issues where Dick was portrayed like that weren't written by Morrison. Dick being Batman only stopped working once Bruce returned, since he rendered Dick totally obsolete.
