In one photograph, Jimenez reunited with his former teammate on the creative side and writer James Tynion IV. Tynion began his tenure on DC’s ongoing Batman series with Batman#85 as well as Jimenez was Batman‘s principal creator for the “Joker War” event and the subsequent issues. Up until the team’s joint run came to an end with Batman #117 In the course of their collaboration, the two artists created new characters to the Batman mythos that included Punchline (the Joker’s new girlfriend), Clownhunter, and Ghost-Maker.
Tynion left Dark Knight to concentrate on creator-owned comics. Jimenez’s last issue was not Batman117. Jimenez returned to Batman and replaced Joshua Williamson as the series chief illustrator. Zdarsky and Jimenez began their tenure as a creative team by releasing Batman #125 which marked the beginning of the book’s “Failsafe” arc.

Batman has to face Failsafe, a robotic Batman designed by Bruce Wayne. Failsafe was created as a result of the possibility that Bruce Wayne, his alternate persona as Batman, Batman of Zur-En-Arrh would become a rogue and begin killing other people. If the Penguin faked his death and was later framed by Batman for murder, Failsafe was activated to put the Caped Crusader down.
Jimenez will step back from the title when the “Failsafe arc” ends with Batman #130. Mike Hawthorne, an artist from Batman 1131 until Batman 134, will serve as Jimenez’s replacement. DC Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee revealed at New York Comic Con 2022 that Batman will receive new variant covers penciled in by Joe Quesada (ex-Marvel Editor-in-Chief) specifically designed for Batman 131 and Batman 1132.
As of writing, Batman #130 is the next issue set to be released from the Batman title. The issue will be released on Dec. 6 from DC Comics, with Zdarsky as the writer and Jimenez as the artist.
