November 8's Dark Nights: Metal tie-in Batman Lost #1 is expanding, upping its price, and changing its creative team.
Previously solicited as a 32-page one-shot, the book - which Scott Snyder has described as an unofficial seventh issue of the core Dark Nights: Metal miniseries - will now be 40 pages.
For this now expanded book, Snyder will now be assisted by co-writers James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson.
The originally-solicited artists Olivier Coipel and Bengal have left the issue over what the latter artist has tweeted were "a problem of schedules and deadlines."
Batman Lost #1 will now be illustrated by Doug Mahnke, Jamie Mendoza, Yanick Paquette, and Jorge Jimenez.
Bengal's planned cover has also been cancelled, with Coipel now drawing the foil-stamped cover.
With these changes, Batman Lost #1 has upped its price from $3.99 to $4.99, which will now be in contrast to the core Dark Nights: Metal issues which DC dropped down from $4.99 to $3.99.
Here is the updated solicitation
