"And when I say huge, I mean huge. Can't wait to talk to you about it,' he tweeted (opens in new tab) on August 14.
DC has been teasing a new Crisis in 2022 with Darkseid involved - that would be pretty "huge," wouldn't it? It would definitely give the artist a chance to draw "some of my favorite superheroes" as he teased.
