DC Comics has confirmed during their Batman panel panel at Chicago's C2E2 convention that the Booster Gold team up arc starting in April 18's Batman #45 will take place in an alternate world where Booster Gold has gone back in time to save Thomas and Martha Wayne - and inadvertently prevent Bruce Wayne's birth.
"It's Dick Grayson without Bruce Wayne - and a lot of bullets," writer Thomas King explained in the panel.
As previously solicited, Tony S. Daniel will pencil the arc in his return to the title following his "New 52" run as writer/artist. Daniel confirmed at the panel that he will ink himself rather than previously solicited inker Sandu Florea.
Written by TOM KING • Art by TONY S. DANIEL and SANDU FLOREA • Cover by TONY S. DANIEL • Variant cover by OLIVIER COIPEL
