During the DC Comics Meet The Publisher panel at San Diego Comic Con, Grant Morrison showed up, much to the surprise of those in attendance. While there, the writer not only teased a second volume of the excellent Wonder Woman: Earth One, but also Arkham Asylum 2, the unexpected sequel to his famed 1989 Batman graphic novel.
"Let's take that 'jump the shark' idea and do the best Batman book there's ever been," he said.
Morrison described the project as an over-the-top, Luc Besson-esque thriller which takes place in the future timeline he created where Batman's son Damian has grown up to become Batman.
Artist Chris Burnham will reteam with Morrison on the follow-up, having worked with him on the earlier Batman Incorporated series. The book was described as a 120-page effort, but no further details — including a release date — were discussed.
Morrison also took time to discuss the next chapter of his Wonder Woman: Earth One series, describing the next volume as the Empire Strikes Back of the series. "We're showing you cannot mess with the Amazons," said Morrison. "They've spent 3,000 years doing it better than you [and they] don't do it with violence at all."
