DC COMICS CONFIRMS JOHN RIDLEY'S BATMAN MINI-SERIES

DC Comics has confirmed that John Ridley will team with artist Nick Derington for a four-issue Batman series scheduled to begin in January.

"I think it's a pretty safe bet that if I'm writing Batman, it's probably a little better than a 47% chance he's going to be a person of color," Ridley said.

Ridley also revealed his series will focus on the family of Lucius Fox, head of Wayne Enterprises. "But he [Fox] has a family and this is a family that has secrets, has kept secrets from one another," said Ridley. "It's a little bit different dynamic than the Batman that we've always seen."

DC revealed an image from the series by Ladronn.

While this will be the first time Ridley has written a series featuring Batman, he's no stranger to comic book writing, nor to DC. In 2004, he wrote The Authority: Human on the Inside (with artist Ben Oliver) and contributed an arc to the 2005 series, The Razor's Edge: Warblade (with artist Simon Bisley). Most recently, Ridley also collaborated with artist Georges Jeanty on the groundbreaking limited series The American Way (2006) and its sequel, The American Way: Those Above and Those Below (2017). Fans interested in learning more about Ridleyfs plans for this series should check out the Batman: The Joker War panel at DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, Saturday, September 12 at 10amPT/1pmET.

Ridley is writing a short story (with art by Olivier Coipel) for the Batman: Joker War Zone one-shot anthology that may provide drop additional hints at his plans for the January mini-series.
