Scott Snyder Announces The Batman Who Laughs Miniseries

Today’s DC Justice League panel at San Diego Comic-Con featured a host of talent from the “New Justice” family of titles: Justice League, Justice League Dark, Justice League Odyssey, Teen Titans and Titans.

New Justice architect and Justice League writer Scott Snyder was on hand to talk with fans about his current run, including the creation of the Legion of Doom, Sinestro’s discovery of the Ultraviolet Spectrum and Lex Luthor dispatching Vandal Savage with a doorknob.

But he really stirred the crowd’s interest with the announcement that he would be teaming up with artist Jock to create a six-issue miniseries based on the popular character from Dark Knights: Metal, The Batman Who Laughs. Scheduled for November, this is a story Snyder has been eager to write, featuring two of his favorite characters. This six-issue miniseries pits Batman against the culmination of all his fears from the Dark Multiverse, an evil amalgamation of himself and his greatest nemesis, The Joker.

Image Announces New Scott Snyder & Jock Comic Book “Wytches” Arriving In September 2014

Yesterday at the Image Expo 2014 in San Francisco, American Vampire” and “Batman” writer Scott Snyder shared that he would explore the world of witches in a new Image comic book series called “Wytches” with his “Detective Comics” collaborator Jock on art. 

Here is the press release regarding the project:

Scott Snyder (Batman, Superman Unchained, Severed) and Jock (Batman, Wolverine, Snapshot) will team up for a new, ongoing horror series called Wytches. Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying.

Wytches takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before. “I like taking classic monsters and reimagining them in a fresh, contemporary, and much scarier way,” said Snyder.

Snyder and Jock have worked together previously on the Batman story “The Black Mirror” in the pages of Detective Comics and Snyder knew from the get-go that he wanted Jock on board.

“It’s great to finally have Scott Snyder back at Image,” said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “We loved working with Scott on Severed, and he has only gotten better since then, so it’s really wonderful that he’s teaming up with Jock on what is without a doubt one of the creepiest books we have ever published.”

Wytches is a new ongoing fantasy horror series coming to Image Comics in September 2014. You’ve been warned.

Scott Snyder Announces Flash-Forward Batman # 28 With Art By Dustin Nguyen

Scott Snyder announced via Twitter that Batman #28 will be a special issue that shows what’s happening in the world of Batman after Zero Year and will be drawn by Dustin Nguyen!

“We agreed,” says Snyder, “that with all the crazy stuff that’s going to happen in 2014 – and my goal above all in 2014 is to keep things daring and fun – it’d be a thrill to do a total spoiler issue. A stand-alone issue that takes place in the near future and reveals all sorts of massive surprises coming to Gotham.”

The new issue – #28 – will replace the original finale issue of Zero Year: Dark City and “the issue will have a lot of surprises” says Snyder. It jumps forward in the timeline and “shows you a glimpse of the future of Batman – Gotham circa summer 2014.”

Batman # 29 will now conclude the Zero Year: Dark City arc of the three part storyline. Snyder went on to share a look at a character design for Batman # 28 that you can see below.

Sneak Peek At Vertigo’s American Vampire: The Long Road to Hell


Vertigo has unveiled a preview of American Vampire: The Long Road to Hell #1, a one-shot co-written by Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque, with art by Albuquerque. A variant cover will be drawn by Tony Moore.

Arriving June 12, the special features the return of fan-favorite vampire hunter Travis Kidd (introduced in the series’ “Death Race” arc) as he tracks a pair of newly turned young lovers — the “Heartbreak Killers” — across the American heartland.

“This is my first time writing for Vertigo and it’s a big honor,” Albuquerque said in March. “Once it was decided we would go on hiatus, I approached Mark (our editor) with the idea of doing this special, so the fans could have a ‘taste of blood’ while waiting for the book’s return. He liked the idea and we (Scott Snyder, Mark and I) began talking about it.”

Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo Discuss Batman: Zero Year


Kicking off this June, Batman: Zero Year is an epic and grand 11-issue arc that chronicles the untold details of Batman’s origin story within DC Comics-The New 52. From the #1 New York Times bestselling creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, Zero Year takes flight in BATMAN #21.

“He becomes Batman pretty early in this,” Snyder teased to Comic Book Resources about Bruce Wayne picking up the Dark Knight’s cape and cowl. “You’ll see him as Batman not too far in. So in terms of that origin, that’s part of it. But part of this is the first big adventure he had as Batman. It’s not just how Bruce becomes Batman. That’s certainly a big part of ‘Zero Year’ at the beginning, but it’s also about how the city changes for him. It’s about how he becomes its hero. What does that mean? And what kind of threat is it going to throw at him to challenge him and make sure he’s worthy of that?”
