Peter Tomasi has spent many days and nights poring over scripts in his personal Batcave. Before leaving his staff position at DC Comics in 2007 to return to his writing roots, Tomasi served as the editor of Grant Morrison's run on "Batman." Since then, Tomasi wrote an extremely well-received year-long run on "Nightwing," the three-issue miniseries "Blackest Night: Batman" and, after being hand-picked by Morrison, three issues of the best-selling "Batman and Robin."
The common denominator of the aforementioned projects is the fact that Dick Grayson, the original Robin, was the featured Dark Knight, not the iconic Bruce Wayne. But Tomasi gets his chance at scripting the world's greatest detective this fall as the writer of the new "Batman and Robin" series, which launches as part of DC Comics' trailblazing "New 52" rebranding. Joining Tomasi on the title is fan-favorite artist Patrick Gleason, his collaborator on the "Batman and Robin" volume 1 arc and "Green Lantern Corps."
