To make sure @Joelle_Jones could draw the Wonder Woman issues we added a one and done in 38. It’s a Batman as dark detective issue and introduces my first original Bat villain who’ll play a big role going forward. I kind of love it. https://t.co/20gwtJc0os

In reply to a fan on Twitter, Tom King dropped a big announcement for an upcoming story in his Batman run. Issue #38 will be a one-shot detective story to feature a new villain who, according to King, will play a big role going forward.
King has stated his desire to do a 100 issue run on Batman and with the twice-a-month release schedule that has started since the launch of Rebirth, it’s entirely possible for him to achieve. For now, it’s nice too see King has a long term plan for his vision and we can’t wait to see his addition to the rogues gallery!
