The writer of "Postal" and "The Wildstorm: Michael Cray" to do a five-issue arc on the series, and what might seem like a prequel to a Outsiders relaunch.

Some good news today for current fans of Detective Comics, though James Tynion IV is sadly leaving the comic with #981, it appears the team-aspect won't be dropped for the next five issues. Bryan Hill (revealed recently to be writing the Hanna Barbara/DC crossover one-shot comic Black Lightning/Hong Kong Phooey #1, The Wildstorm: Michael Cray mini-series, and the indie comic Postal) will be taking over the series starting with #982 for a five-issue arc that'll guest-star Black Lightning called "On the Outside" (as per the Den of Geek). 

Here's the cover to #982 and the June solicitations for it and #983:

"On the Outside" part one! Duke Thomas. Cassandra Cain. They and other young heroes don't intend to stand down, no matter what Batman thinks is best. Who can Batman trust to guide them? They need a teacher...and Black Lightning fits the bill!

"On the Outside" part two! Batman wanted Black Lightning involved in the lives of his protégés—but how involved was the Dark Knight thinking? What kind of missions will Jefferson Pierce take them on? And what, exactly, is he whispering in their ears about Batman himself?

Seems rather Outsiders relaunch prelude doesn't it? Just to note Cassandra Cain was a prior member of the team (it's easy to forget that when the succeeding writer on the comic after the run she was on failed to acknowledge it at all) and of course Black Lightning was a founding member of the team as well.
