“Chew” Creator John Layman To Take Over “Detective Comics” At DC

“Chew” Creator John Layman To Take Over “Detective Comics” At DC

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.
