Gaiman. Batman.

So, those “in the know” are fully aware that this is Comic-Con weekend, which promises an onslaught of news on pretty much every pop-culture entertainment front.

While the news is still being digested by my brain, one piece of news does stand out above the rest. Akin to Final Fantasy no longer being exclusive.

As reported on DC’s “One Weekend Later” panel, it seems that following Batman R.I.P. and two-part story by Denny O’Neil, Neil Gaiman will be writing Batman. For how long no one knows, but Morrison did say he’s staying on the title “forever” so it’ll probably only be for an arc (plus, I don’t see Gaiman really taking up an ongoing). But it’s Gaiman on Batman – how is that not exciting?
