I found this story yesterday on Robot 6, and it warmed my heart. As you probably know, I’m a huge Batman fan, and that fandom really started with Batman: The Animated Series. And once I became more aware of the people that developed the show, I became a fan of Paul Dini. I’ve enjoyed almost everything he has written. (There was that Countdown mess that he was overseer of.) So, news that he’s going to be working on a Batman graphic novel makes me happy.
Actual details are sparse though, since it is very early in development. Personally, I hope it’s a Batman story involving Zatanna. It’s no secret that Dini has wanted to pair Batman and Zatanna up. Of course, the fact that Dini is essentially married to Zatanna may have played a role in this. But really, there’s not enough Dini-written Zatanna material. Sure, there was a series that last 16 issues, until it was cancelled by the New 52, but I want more.
