    I wonder if their changes involve putting Bendis on every book, starting with Batman?
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    And now we just have to wait for the "when" King or someone reveals exactly how last minute this decision was.

    (Also side note, since it states DC's plans for 2020 is making changes to their line, with the first being making Batman monthly again, I wonder if this means all of their books will be switching to monthly now, which at this point I believe is just Flash and Wonder Woman remaining)
    Justice League is twice monthly. Tec too.

    And with Batman going monthly, it's now just those four. I'm surprised Diana didn't go monthly when G Willow Wilson took over. Flash will probably go monthly when it gets a new writer. Isn't it going to be the longest running Rebirth series, the only one left that's kept both the same writer and a double ship schedule, now that King's off Batman?

    Sidenote: someone needs to update the thread title to say that the rumour is now confirmed to be the truth.

    they said something about Batman becoming monthly so that to incorporate it better with DC Universe and continuity... Am I to assume this is their way of saying "King will get to do whatever Batman/Catwoman fanfic he wants to write over at this brand new title we are creating to appease him, and we are going to give our main Batman title to some new talent so we can go ahead with our in-continuity stories because we like our canon Batman to remain sngle"?

    Since King’s run ends at 85 and goes back to monthly, does this mean it’s getting relaunched with a brand new #1 too or does it follow up with #86?

    could be, but Mitch Gerads said on twitter that it's 100% in continuity, so...

    If they're that close to issue #100, they may not want to relaunch just yet with a new #1 issue.
    (Especially if whoever takes over the writing with issue #86 isn't going to be around beyond issue #100 on that title.)

    Great news! He can make wonders with a 12 issues maxiseries and in a monthly schedule even without the 20 issues more he wanted

    Check out Lion Forge's Catalyst Prime Universe. Its the best damned superhero verse in comics. Diverse characters and interesting stories set in a universe where anyone can be a hero. And company that prides itself on representation both in the comics themselves and in the people behind them.

    Exactly.

    This just feels like another instance of DC not really being able to figure out what they are doing.

    The odds that this will be some sort of an exception seem pretty low.

    I believe it will be the exception get a writer who understands and likes writing batman as a hero instant improvement over tom kings version which will be a crappy altverse for me

    The argument that has made to me is that Kingís Batman is too esoteric for the main book on which so much of the publisher rests.
    Honestly I have to agree with that.

    The last kind of conventional Batman story in Kings run was imo "Everyone Loves Ivy" that finished a year ago. Since than it was mostly filler, character studies and other experimental stuff. You can do an issue like that one in a while but not for an entire year, at least not in the main Batbook, and not even in TEC.

    Thats stuff for more esoteric Batbooks, like "Legends of the Dark Knight" or "Batman Black an White".
