Chip Kidd To Write Batman Comic

27875035.JPGBatman obsessive, book design guru, and author Chip Kidd will write a Batman story for DC Comics.

According to Paste, Kidd has written or co-written three books about the Dark Knight. In 2008, the book nerd published “Bat-Manga!: The Secret History of Batman in Japan,” a loving tribute to wacky world of Batman comics in Japan during the 1960s–a technicolor Manga treatment of the all-American hero.

Here’s more: “The news came via Twitter (where else?) from one of the audience members at the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest, who witnessed Kidd’s announcement and promptly spread the good news throughout the nerd world.” (Via Afterword)
