Dark Nights: Metal's Batman Who Laughs returns this November in his own six-issue limited series by co-creator Scott Snyder and artist Jock. Batman Who Laughs will spin out of Snyder's current run on Justice League, but be much more darker than his superhero team book.
"I wanted to get back to my roots with horror," said Snyder.
The writer said this alt-universe Batman Who Laughs will have another Dark Knight with him - a gun-laden Batman who picked up Joe Chill's gun and shot him after Chill murrdered his parents. DC's image file calls him "Artillary Bats."
"He's the deadliest Batman ever."
Snyder and Jock have worked together on numerous occasions, including Detective Comics, Batman, All-Star Batman, and the creator-owned series Wytches.
Batman Who Laughs #1 is scheduled for release this November.
