In a Reddit AMA, Batman scribe Scott Snyder confirmed that Batman Eternal, the popular weekly starring the Caped Crusader and his stock of Bat-characters will be getting a sequel. Here’s the quote.
“Yep! The story ends in March and then we’ll do a year 2 after a break (we have to get WAY ahead on a weekly series before it starts coming out).”
So, weeklies are not going anywhere anytime soon, which is both good and bad. Reading a Batman story with so much detail and attention to specifics is refreshing, but not all of Batman Eternal has been must-read. Plus, which Bats characters that aren’t in Year 1 can be used for Year 2? Oh, yeah, the Joker’s back! Yeah, this could be awesome!
