It certainly is a day of Batman announcements from DC. Previously, we reported on the new ongoing Batman: The Dark Knight series, and now we learn the Bat-Family of titles is going to expand with a six issue series focused on the Knight and Squire. The mini-series will be written by Paul Cornell with art by Jimmy Broxton.
“I’m delighted to be working in DC Britain!” said Cornell. “Grant always said that he added something to the Knight and Squire’s world with every appearance: we’ll be taking that policy, and the amount of over the top weird and wonderful zany surreal Britishness and dialling them up to eleven. If you’ve wanted to see a milkman fighting a dinosaur in a suit, in a pub, then this is the comic for you.”
The Source doesn’t say when the series will launch, but my guess is sometime around the end of the year.
