“I was talking with [former Batman writer James Tynion IV] and we started talking about a lot of the plans for next year and when DC first came to me about Batman, I originally said no, partially because of the scheduling involved,” Williamson recently told CBR. “But it became one of those things where I was talking with them everyday after that, saying, ‘If I was going to do it, here’s what I would do…’ and there were other things beyond the first four issues anyway, in terms of big-picture DC planning. We have the first four issues for this Abyss arc and another storyline right after that and then things that’ll splinter off into other big stuff that’ll happen at DC next year with some of the big event plans we have.”

“Shadow War” begins in March from DC.
