Obviously happy about taking this on, he will join a team of three who will work as artists on the series; the other two being Tony S. Daniel and Guillem March. Quite the team, indeed.
Take a look at his first cover below, including a wonderful black and white version.
Jorge Jimenez has been the primary artist on Justice League since 2018, working alongside Scott Snyder. His final issue will be January’s #39.
Mr Jimenez has been a Batman artist before, working on the solo stories Batman: Arkham Unhinged and Batman: Lost.
No doubt that you will all be happy to see the great Jorge Jimenez join the Batman series, I sure am. Let us know your thoughts below.
