Paul Dini to write upcoming Batman graphic novel

Paul Dini is the creative mind behind the Batman: The Animated Series television show, and most recently the Arkham Asylum and Arkham City video games. In a recent interview with SFX, Dini revealed that he has one last big Batman story in him. Here’s what he had to say about his upcoming graphic novel:

Yeah, I have a big Batman story in me, it’s a very personal one and I’ve just got permission from DC to do it, We’re just finalizing the deal right now for me to write it as a graphic novel and I’ve very excited about it.

I’ve already started work on it and it’ll probably be a year or two down the road but this is something that I’ve had inside me for a long time, it’s going to be a change of pace for Batman and it’ll take some of the fans by surprise when they ultimately see what the story’s about. I think it’s going to a really terrific story, I’ve gotten nothing but great response from the folks at DC on it. I really can’t say much more until we announce it formally but I’m really looking forward to this and jumping in and devoting my entire energy to nothing but writing this Batman story.
