Hey, Adam here with an update on comics . It looks like two of the New 52 comic books are about to get a little mix again . DC announced that Detective & Batwoman are going to be having an art team change . You might know Trevor McCarthy art work from BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM . Trevor will be joining co-writers J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman on BATWOMAN. Ed Benes who has worked on many DC Comics titles will join DETECTIVE COMICS for issues 10, 11 and 12 while Tony Daniels takes a break . I’m curious to see how this all turns out .
Stepping in for issues 9 through 11, New York Times bestselling artist Trevor McCarthy will be joining co-writers J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman on BATWOMAN. No stranger to the shadows of Gotham City, McCarthy notable recent work includes BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM, by writers Scott Snyder and Kyle Higgins. The critically acclaimed artist of BATWOMAN‘s first story arc, Williams will be making his return to ongoing illustration duties with issue 12.
And following the “Night of the Owls” Bat-family crossover event in May, guest artist Ed Benes will join DETECTIVE COMICS for issues 10, 11 and 12. Benes is critically acclaimed for his work on DC Comics titles that include ACTION COMICS, BIRDS OF PREY, SUPERGIRL, SUPERMAN and many others. DETECTIVE COMICS‘ regular writer/artist Tony S. Daniel will continue to provide the scripts for the issues to be illustrated by Benes, and will return to his comprehensive creative duties with issue 13.
“We’re excited to be getting such great talent to step in on these books,” said Bob Harras, DC Entertainment‘s Editor-in-Chief. “The work on both titles thus far has been exemplary. Tony Daniel has been going non-stop since the launch of DC COMICS-THE NEW 52, and Amy Reeder’s contribution to BATWOMAN has been a beautiful transition from J.H.’s first story arc. Both Trevor and Ed are going to have to bring their A-game to maintain those standards.”
