Greg Capullo isn’t leaving the series, as DC Comics informs us that he will be back with Batman #19. It’s just part of DC’s program to highlight guest artists, as done earlier this year with Becky Cloonan.
In Batman #18, Batman is in danger of losing his humanity in the wake of an unspeakable tragedy. Also, the character Harper Row will be appearing.
Batman #18 is written by Scott Snyder. The issue is scheduled to arrive in comic book stores on March 13, 2013. The regular cover is by Greg Capullo with a variant cover by Andy Kubert. There will also be a backup story written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with art by Alex Maleev.
