Scott Snyder will return to "Detective Comics" this summer.

"Batman" scribe Scott Snyder will end his five-year run on the title and move on to "Detective Comics," DC Comics' secondary "Batman" title, this summer.

According to a report from Bleeding Cool, "Batman" will move to a twice-monthly schedule starting this summer. "Detective Comics," however, will stick to a monthly schedule. It is unclear which issue of "Batman" will be Snyder's last.

The report claims Snyder will have more freedom to work with the character in "Detective Comics," which allows for more creative storytelling than the event-driven main title.

Snyder previously made his Batman debut on the acclaimed "The Black Mirror" storyline of "Detective Comics" that began in 2010 prior to the launch of the New 52. Following DC's linewide reboot, Snyder has been at the helm of "Batman" for a lengthy and successful collaboration with artist Greg Capullo, who previously announced he was taking a break from the title.

"Batman" #49, Scott Snyder's next issue of "Batman" with Yanick Paquett, is scheduled for release on Feb. 10, 2016.
