The series had an erratic shipping schedule even before going on hiatus, with the best that the publishers could do was a bi-monthly streak at one point. From 2005 to 2008, only ten issues launched of what was supposed to be a twelve-issue series.
In 2010, DC announced a new series called "Dark Knight: Boy Wonder" that would last six issues and wrap up the series. In October 2015, Frank Miller claims he's just started working on it. According to Jim Lee the art for the series is complete, DC just won't publish it, the reasons possibly being that Frank Miller attracts all the wrong attention (see Holy Terror) and the editor who originally commissioned Lee and Miller to do the book, Bob Schreck, was fired in 2009, about a year after the last issue came out (this misanthropic editor went on to finally edit and publish Holy Terror at Legendary Comics).
Fan Nickname: He is called "The Goddamned Batman" to distinguish him from his mainstream counterpart.
