Tony Daniel Leaving DETECTIVE COMICS

Detective Comics #12

Writer/artist Tony Daniel announced via Facebook Friday his run on Detective Comics/Batman will conclude with August’s Detective Comics #12 as writer and September’s Detective #0 as artist.

“It's been a long and adventurous journey for me, but there are other projects in the pipeline that I've been itching to do and I felt the need to scratch the itch,” posted Daniel.

“Next week DC will reveal some information on what one of the projects is I'm involved with. Then I'm gearing up for something I've wanted to do for a while in early 2013, a project where I hope to grow even more as an artist and a professional. It is top secret, and probably won't be revealed until the fall. I want to thank all my friends, family and fans for supporting me through these crazy last few years. Onward and Upward!”

Detective Comics #11

Speculation as to who is taking over Detective after September’s Zero Month issue will likely focus on new Batman: The Dark Knight writer Gregg Hurwitz, who is writing the #0 issue Daniel will draw as his last, but as of June 12, a DC spokesperson confirmed to Newsarama that Hurwitz is not taking over the title.
