Joëlle Jones is joining DC Comics' Batman line-up, and just tweeted out her first piece of art from that assignment - the cover to October's #33, her debut.
This will be Jones' second Batman project, following doing some work on the Batman '66 title. For Batman, she'll be reuniting with her long-time collaborator Jamie S. Rich - as writer, he worked with her on several creator-owned titles. Rich has recently come in as one of the editors of Batman.
