    On the topics of promotion and the OGN format instead of floppies:

    I do think there would be some benefit to additional promotion for the lower tier books but I think the gains there are going to be incremental at best. I would argue that there is a significant chunk of readers that only want to read "important" books/characters and making something "important" involves either 1) getting big name talent on the book or 2) making the characters central to universe wide event - probably a combination of a two. Even doing that though isn't a guarantee of continued success though, take GL once Johns left for example, readership went downhill pretty fast. Now that's not to say that I think DC is doing everything correctly, I do think for example they could stand to utilize their female characters better.

    In terms of the OGN format, yes the the OGN/bookstore market is huge right now but it's primarily in the young readers market, not traditional superheros. DC tried to break into that with their young readers stuff but outside of a few hits (Garcia/Piccolo's Raven for example) it hasn't been as successful as they had hoped and I have a hard time believing that more normal superhero works would capture that audience. Additionally any sustained push for mainline OGNs at the expense of floppies is going to piss off the direct market since the latter is their lifeblood and in general an OGN is probably going to feel more disconnected from the floppy line which once again gets us into whether a book is "important" or not.

    Fabok is also working on a new Batman book (check the comments). I’m assuming he’s doing interiors and not just another cover. Will probably be ready in 2023

    That’s what he says in the comments:
    are you currently working on a Batman book Jason? I need details lol

    Fabok: yes. Details soon(ish)
    He did say he was just stepping away from DC until they got more stable after all the layoffs. I’m sure they offered him a BL Batman book deal like Jock, although maybe it’s a Three Jokers sequel with Johns?

    So there are four books from that list way back when that still haven’t been announced:

    Legend of the Batman
    Robin & Batman
    DC Middle Ages
    Elseworld

    If LotB is another anthology I could see Fabok doing a story for it. Black & White recently ended so I could see a new anthology being launched to replace it.

    Well those were working titles so for all we know one of the recently announced Batman minis might be "Legend of the Batman".

    Wonder if 1 of them is a spinoff of the Yang Batman from the latest Batman/Superman.

    I will say this Yang is definitely a writer who has proven to me that he deserves to get bigger named books under DC. Superman smashes the klan and the Terrifics are just recent examples. If we didn’t already have Johnson and Taylor I would say give him the main Superman book.

    Williamson has a few more DC books coming that will be announced in Nov & Dec solicits I’d wager. Also some 2022 stuff coming (like the event).

    I mean infinite frontier ends next month right, so I would assume that means we would be hearing some post series announcements soonish.

    Only "DC Vampires" was a working title. Every other title that had a proper name attached got announced with the same name or a very recognizable name. I thought "Legend of the Batman" might be "Legends of the Dark Knight" but Dark Knight got announced before we heard about the surprise titles.

    The upcoming new titles include (as briefly described by DC):

    Deathstroke Inc.
    Harley Quinn Animated Series sequel
    A Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary title
    Elseworld (1/2 of the new center of the new DC Omniverse)
    "DC Vampires" (described as a working title)
    Robin and Batman
    Joker: A Puzzle Box
    The Legend of Batman
    Crush and Lobo
    Nubia and the Amazons
    DC Middle Ages


    In a follow-up announcement, the publisher said more information will be forthcoming on these projects throughout the year.

    And besides, would you really be surprised at another Batman book?

    In addition to the four I already listed, we’re supposed to get a new Stargirl series based on that one shot. Maybe the JSA also, so about 6 more books for 2021
