Frank Miller is returning to the character that he revolutionized in The Dark Knight Returns. Writer Tom King tweeted an image of a battle-damaged Caped Crusader, accrediting the art to Miller. King didn’t offer further details on Miller’s involvement in the series and whether he’s providing additional art. The image could be the variant cover for Batman #62, which has Miller listed as the cover artist in the solicitation. Artist Mitch Gerads also promised two extra story pages in Batman #62. The issue will be in stores on January 9.
King also used Twitter to lay out his rough plans for the rest of the series, which is slated to end with issue #105. Issue 60 will wrap up the “Cold Days” arc, with the “Knightmares” arc running through issues #61-69, followed by “The Fall and the Fallen” in issues #70-74. King promised a huge event in issue #75 that would set up the end of the series.
