DC COMICS ANNOUNCE FRANCIS MANAPUL AND BRIAN BUCCELLATO TO TAKE OVER ‘DETECTIVE COMICS’ [NYCC 2013]

DC Comics announced that the new creative team for Detective Comics will be Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, who will be wrapping up their current series for DC Comics, The Flash with issue #25. While their run on The Flash is highlighted by a lighter, funner tone, they will be tapping into their dark and gritty story telling abilities for their run on Detective Comics.

According to a Comics Alliance article, Manapul and Buccellato’s run on Detective Comics will feature:

  • Batman’s detective skills will be in the forefront
  • Batman presented as a “street level hero”
  • New characters will be introduced to help bring out the importance of family to Bruce Wayne
  • Bruce Wayne will become involved in the life of the widow of an ex-Mob boss

The book launches in the Spring of 2014.
