    True, though I am slightly disappointed its supposedly JUST going to be him and Clay Mann. His art is great obviously, but I really loved his rotating list of artists, so no more Fornes, Weeks, Finch, Jones (tho she'll still be on Catwoman), etc. is sad, but still looks to be really special.

    Also since they have a Batman Annual every December, I wonder if he'll also write that one, which will act as the transition between 85 and Bat/Cat book, because then *technically* he would have his 100 issues. (Annual 1, 2, 4, Rebirth, Secret Files #1, DC Nation #0, Elmer Fudd Special, Detective Comics #1000)

    Great news! Sure, some issues are "lost" if we are fixated in the #100th mark, but I do think he can make wonders with a 12 issues maxiseries and in a monthly schedule. And with annuals and specials he does arrive to 100th anyways or doesn't he?

    EDIT: Oops, I think he is still some issues behind the 100th mark, but that could change with other specials down the way. I know it's not the same as having 100th issues in the main title telling one long story, that it was what he wanted to do

    I'm sad about losing Fornes and Weeks, but I have no doubt that King will try to find projects to work on with them again. And of the artists he had on the book, Mann and Fornes are my favorites, and Fornes doesn't have the same personal link to King that Mann does.

    Also, nice catch on the numbering! We'll have to wait and see on that!

    I wonder if we'll still get an issue of Batman and Kite-Man having a chat about the crazy events of the run, and if it'll happen in #85 or at the end of Batman & Catwoman.

    I kind of hope that it's in 85. I want Bat and Cat to be the whole focus of that issue. Or maybe we'll get a Batman Annual or secret file or something.
