Michael Moreci and Sebastian Fiumara have been slotted in to write and draw June 13's Detective Comics #982. The issue was originally intended to be the debut of the new regular team of writer Bryan Hill and artist Miguel Mendonca - they are still solicited, however, for June 27's Detective Comics #983 and July's issues.

Along with the creative change, DC have updated the solicited story text for Detective Comics #982 to be a new story titled "The Cursing of Gotham City" about a child abduction connected to the returning Deacon Blackfire and a cult of homeless Gotham residents.

Here is the updated solicitation.
