Batman: Back someday, says executive

by Matthew Price Published: November 27, 2008

Batman’s not necessarily dead, just out of the picture for a while, says DC Comics senior vice president and executive editor Dan DiDio.  It seems that’s information readers have, but not the DC characters, as February solicitation information for “Batman” tie-in title Nightwing says, “Batman is dead.”

DiDio tells the New York Times that several months of Batman-less stories are planned.

“You realize in their absence how valuable the character is,” said DiDio. “Bruce Wayne will always be back as Batman someday.”

In the near future, DC plans a “Battle for the Cowl” storyline as well as “Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader,” written by award-winning novelist and comic-book writer Neil Gaiman.
