The New York Post (via their Parallel Worlds blog) revealed that most of DC's Batbooks would be crossing into Scott Snyder's latest storyline, Zero Year, in November. According to Snyder, the Batbook writers felt that there was an opportunity to show what Batman's supporting cast was doing during Zero Year, which led to the mini-crossover.
Here's Snyder on how the crossover was conceived.
I was writing it as a singular story and some of other writers asked with the Bat-characters in particular, if they might be able to show where their characters were during this kind of seminal moment in the story, when Gotham is at a very dangerous moment.
This marks the third major Snyder storyline to crossover into the rest of the Batline, and is the second this year. No word on whether the covers for the tie-ins will be embossed, die-cut, or 3D.
