According to Bleeding Cool, DC Comics' scribe, Scott Snyder, is departing the Batman comic book series that he has spent the last five years working on with artist Greg Capullo. They also say that Batman is becoming bi-monthly this summer after DC's next relaunch.

In September 2011, Snyder took over the Batman title when DC's last company-wide relaunch, The New 52, was implemented. Before that, Snyder was pennig the secondary Batman title, Detective Comics, and Bleeding Cool claims that Snyder is switching back to the title.

"Detective Comics will remain a monthly title," the report. "The decision to switch books is more likely to be remove Snyder from the event driven nature of some modern comics and of the pressure of writing the lead Batbook, and DC’s bestselling title. He will be more able to do as he pleases with he character."
