The DC Source, also known as the official blog for all things DC, has a nice little write-up whereby they explain that Grant Morrison will be returning the iconic Bruce Wayne in April 2010. I’ve included their description of the project below.
The World’s Greatest Detective is facing his toughest mystery.
Lost in the timestream, believed to be dead by his friends and enemies alike, Bruce Wayne must use every bit of intelligence, every ounce of strength and training he’s acquired over the years to find his way back to the city, and adopted family of vigilantes, he’d left behind.
Blasted by the mysterious and powerful Omega Effect in the pages of FINAL CRISIS during a deadly battle with the malevolent New God Darkseid, Bruce Wayne must battle back through the waves of time to reclaim what was his – his city, his life…his cowl?
From the kinetic and awe-inspiring imagination of writer Grant Morrison and an all-star cast of artists, including Chris Sprouse, who’ll handle art chores on the first issue, BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #1 (of 6) hits in April and will prove to be Bruce Wayne’s defining moment as a hero, and his toughest challenge yet.
We knew this was going to happen sooner or later, and now we know exactly when. April 2010 Bruce Wayne to arrive back on the scene. The question on everyone’s mind right now is, what exactly is going to happen to the current Batman & Robin once Bruce returns? It should be interesting, to say the least. The two sketches you see here are teaser art for the upcoming mini-series. Remember, Bruce Wayne has been trapped within time itself.
