Saving the biggest news of the convention until the last few hours, DC Comics’ second DC Nation panel confirmed the rumors that Neil Gaiman is going to be taking on the Dark Knight following Batman RIP.

The announcement itself came in the form of a thirty-second video at the end of the panel, which showed a Bat-Signal shining on a coffin while the words “Whatever Happened To The Caped Crusader?” appeared on screen. The story – written by Gaiman and drawn by Andy Kubert – will begin in January next year, but no details were given on where it will appear or in what form. But it’s beginning to look a lot more like Batman’s definitely going to disappear at the end of RIP, if not die outright…

Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert will team in January of 2009 for a Batman story entitled, “Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?”

DD: Neil and I have been talking for several years, and I’ve been trying to find something for him in the DC Universe, and as you said, he’s been rather busy lately, but we always kept the conversation going. I kept on pitching him projects and ideas with the hope that one would really just electrify him and pull him in, and I believe this is the one, and he is really bringing it all to the story.

NRAMA: What format will the project take?

DD: Two issues in January – one issue of Batman and one of Detective Comics. Both slightly oversized.
