    Default Bryan Hill taking over Detective Comics

    Just a 5 issue fill in arc so Peter Tomasi may still take over for a full time run later in the summer.

    DETECTIVE COMICS #982
    Written by BRYAN HILL • Art by MIGUEL MENDONÇA • Cover by EDDY BARROWS • Variant cover by MARK BROOKS
    “On the Outside” part one! Duke Thomas. Cassandra Cain. They and other young heroes don’t intend to stand down, no matter what Batman thinks is best. Who can Batman trust to guide them? They need a teacher...and Black Lightning fits the bill!

    DETECTIVE COMICS #983
    Written by BRYAN HILL • Art by MIGUEL MENDONÇA • Cover by EDDY BARROWS • Variant cover by MARK BROOKS
    “On the Outside” part two! Batman wanted Black Lightning involved in the lives of his protégés—but how involved was the Dark Knight thinking? What kind of missions will Jefferson Pierce take them on? And what, exactly, is he whispering in their ears about Batman himself?

    So. "On the Outside." A story about young heroes. Black Lightning. Yep, it sure sounds like we're getting a stealth relaunch of The Outsiders in the pages of Detective Comics this summer! Just on the off chance you aren't familiar, Batman & The Outsiders was a comic that first hit in 1983, which featured the Dark Knight leading a team of heroes that consisted of Katana, Metamorpho, Black Lightning (him again!), and others. We're ready for this concept to be revisited, aren't you?

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!! Literally just jumped for joy! This is FANTASTIC news!

    Bryan Hill is a great writer and The Wildstorm: Michael Cray has been an excellent book.

    Obviously I'm also very glad to see Cass sticking around here, but I knew that was gonna be the case the instant I saw Hill was writing as he's said she's one of his favorite DC characters and that he'd love to write a 12 issue series about her.

    And Hell, he may even be able to turn me around on Duke and make me a fan!

    So yeah, I'm excited!!!

    were you the one who suggested they put duke and cass together? Because I was literally thinking of whoever said that as soon as I read the solicitation. :P

    Yeah, that was me. With Cass safe for now AND Duke working with her my opinion is bound to brighten up on him and as was the case at the time I said it, there color schemes are inverses of each other, black with yellow vs yellow with black; makes a weird comic book sort of sense to put em together in some way.

    Somehow Cass making the team does not surprise me but that leaves Luke, Jean-Paul, Tim, and Stephanie what's going to happen to them I wonder though.

    Since this is only a fill in creative team, I wouldn't be sure of anyone on the team at the moment.

    Surprising choice. Michael Cray has been a solid book.

    Might as well rebrand Detective Comics as Outsiders.

    I haven't been too excited by the idea of a new Outsiders book, but if it's Hill writing and Cass returns to the team alongside Jefferson, I'd definitely be on board.

    I don’t get Batman; first he lets the kids join the bat family, and even helped set duke up with his own operation,and now he wants them to stand down? I’m starting to think Bruce has no business recruiting these kids.
