Grayson #1
Tim Seeley/Tom King (W), Mikel Janin (A)
The series will see Grayson — presumed dead to the world following the events of “Forever Evil” — take an undercover position at spy agency Spyral, a product of Batman Incorporated”. The career shift comes at the urging of Batman himself, who convinces the original Robin he needs to stay “dead.”

From CBR.  Actually really excited about this news.  Even if it’s a weird direction for the character (which, admittedly, it is), Tim Seeley’s Revival is one of my favorite comics and Mikel Janin is hands-down one of the best in the business.
