COMICS: John Layman and Jason Fabok To Take Over DETECTIVE COMICS
Finally revealing the new creative team for Detective Comics, Chew's John Layman will be taking over writing duties while being accompanied by fan-favorite artist Jason Fabok. Check out details and #13's cover after the jump...
After announcing that Tony S. Daniel would be leaving Detective Comics after "Zero Month", DC has finally unveiled the newest creative team behind one of their biggest flagship titles. Chew's John Layman will take over writing duties for the Bat while Jason Fabok will draw each issue. Detective Comics is one of DC's flagship books, so what does the new creative team have in mind?
John Layman spoke on what he wants to do with Batman and his surroundings:
“Obviously, this is a happily surreal and exciting turn-of-events for my career. 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.”
Jason Fabok also expressed his thoughts on joining Detective Comics and what we can expect from his artwork:
“First, I want to express how thankful I am to have this opportunity. I am humbled that DC Comics would entrust me with one of their greatest titles. To work on a Batman title has been the number one goal that I set for my career and I am honored to have this opportunity to make my dream become a reality. I'm really hoping to deliver a dark, epic Batman with hints of the art deco stylings of the old animated series and the more modern take seen in recent incarnations. I am hoping to let my influences gush out onto the page and create something that is familiar, classic and yet my own. As for working with John Layman, I couldn't be more excited. John is a great visual storyteller and he packs every page with meaningful panels that bring the story forward and add incredible depth. Together we hope to deliver a quality Batman tale, filled with mystery, twists, turns, shockers and most of all, fun!”
