The writer/artist has announced via his Facebook page that he's leaving the book.
Daniels' final issue on writing the book will be #12 and only be providing the art to #0. Here's what he said on leaving Tec:
My Batman/Detective run is coming to an end. My final written (and drawn) issue is Detective Comics #12. I'll be producing the art only for issue 0. It's been a long and adventurous journey for me, but there are other projects in the pipeline that I've been itching to do and I felt the need to scratch the itch. Next week DC will reveal some information on what one of the projects is I'm involved with. Then I'm gearing up for something I've wanted to do for a while in early 2013, a project where I hope to grow even more as an artist and a professional. It is top secret, and probably won't be revealed until the fall. I want to thank all my friends, family and fans for supporting me through these crazy last few years. Onward and Upward!
There's no word yet from DC on who will replace Daniels on the book both as artist or writer. Nor who will now be writing #0 of Detective Comics.
