DC Comics has announced that Neal Adams will be returning to Batman in Batman: Odyssey, a 12-part mini-series that launches in July.

Here's how DC describes the series:

"Odyssey finds Batman facing a series of seemingly unrelated challenges, villains and allies, old and new, that push him to his limits as never before. The battles get more intense and, in turn, more deadly, The Dark Knight Detective discovers that there might be an over-arching force behind his troubles. And if this is so, if there is a dark and mysterious matrix being super-imposed over Batman's life.... what sort of life-changing voyage must he go on to free himself from this powerful and insidious direction?

"Worse... where can he go that he has never gone before for his desperately needed Odyssey?"

"I have been collecting bits and pieces of Batman's life and time over the years since I was doing Batman regularly," Adams said. "With even this massive series, I haven't been able to shove them all in. but the juiciest and richest morsels are there. Have comic books always been this much fun?"
