This October, DC Entertainment will be putting Chew creator John Layman on Detective Comics as the title's new ongoing writer. Starting with issue #13, Layman will take over the book from Tony Daniel, who was acting as both the writer and artist for a while. Jason Fabok will be providing the art for this run after his impressive work on Batman Annual #1.
“Obviously, this is a happily surreal and exciting turn-of-events for my career,” Layman told DC's Source blog. “Not only is this my first work within the DC Universe, but I get to work on one of DC’s undisputedly coolest and highest-profile characters. I’m going to take a look at the role of criminal organizations within Gotham City, hopefully from a perspective that does not get considered very often (if at all). From the symbiotic relationship a master criminal must have with Gotham in order to survive, to the lowly, often faceless criminal underling hoping to rise up the ranks. All that, plus Batman’s gonna play with a bunch of crazy new toys and kick all kinds of butt.”
Detective Comics #13 won't launch until October, but you can take a look at the cover for it by Fabok below.
