DC Comics has announced that the creative team of Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolf will be joining Batwing for a two-issue story arc beginning in March 2012.

Pursuing Massacre to Gotham City, Batwing enlists the aid of his extended Bat-family – including Batman, Nightwing and Robin (with an assist from Batgirl!) – to help combat the threat. But Massacre’s hunted the surviving members of The Kingdom this far, and it’ll take all of their combined efforts to stop him. It’s a massive showdown between Batwing and his arch-nemesis, in which the identity of Massacre will ultimately be revealed.

This had to happen at some point at it is hard to have a Bat-family character not crossover with the rest of the Batman books without feeling like title that is only drawing readers because of the word bat in the title.

    This is one of the few titles in the “new” DC 52 that I have not had a chance to read. Sounds like it could be a decent “Jumping On Point” and I like Nguyen’s work.

    Quick question: Who out there would take an interest in a Nightwing/Red Robin series? That seems to be something that DC would do for a limited series since Hannibal Lecter/Damian Wayne is hanging around with Daddy Bat.

    A Dick Grayson/Tim Drake book would be rather interesting actually.
