‘Detective Comics’ Art Team Switch Up

The finale to Detective Comics’ “Batmen Eternal” will have a different art team than originally solicited.

It appears that the originally advertised pairing of Álvaro Martínez and Raül Fernandez will be replaced by Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira for issue #981. This marks the third consecutive issue that Martinez and Fernandez have been replaced since Detective Comics #979 and #980.

The good news is that these two incredible artists will be joining former Detective Comics, and current Doomsday Clock colorist Brad Anderson on the forthcoming, and highly anticipated Justice League Dark.

In a way this is also very fitting, as writer James Tynion IV will be leaving the book with the same art team that he began his tenure with.
