This comic certainly lives up to its name. Out of the 80 pages only a handful are taken up by ads or previews, so there is a lot for fans to dig into. And with a long comic comes a long review, I’m going to look at each of this year’s stories individually. I’m also going to give each story its own batarang rating, with the final score being their average. Before starting the review proper, kudos to Dustin Nguyen and…

Recently, there has been a surge of rumors that have hit the inter-webs that after, The Dark Knight Rises is finished, that Warner Bros. is looking to keep the Batmania alive with a live-action TV series.
Now, I encourage you to take this with a great grain of salt but the rumor is that Warner Bros. has put an unidentified executive in charge of overseeing the development and production of a new live-action TV series. The series is being described as a continuation…

We start a new segment today with the help of Bat-fan Michele. Michele has been in the closed beta for DC Universe Online for about a month. She has a number of screenshots that she will be sharing with us Bat-fans who are not in the beta and waiting for the game to be released. The first screen she sent over is the Bat-Signal shining high above Gotham City.

For those of you who have no idea what WikiLeaks is, it is a website that makes it's name on releasing confidential documents. Recently, they released a ton of government documents that revealed passwords to government officials' computers. If Batman existed in today's worlds, he would have to compete with not only supervillains, but also WIkiLeaks.

So there are a number of rumors floating around the net today, so let's sift through them.
The first one is that the script for The Dark Knight Rises was supposedly due to Warner Bros. from Chris Nolan. This originated from a tweet from Variety editor and reporter, David S. Cohen. This is what the tweet said:
Chris Nolan told me his The Dark Knight Rises script is due Monday or he's in big trouble. Big trouble? What can they do? Fire him?
Well I do agree with the bit about firing Nolan. If he is late, clearly they are not…

Batman Schools Green Lantern
As most of us know Batman has had an uneven history with the Green Lantern. Certainly they don’t always see eye to eye and sometimes their relationship has come to blows. But they’ve always had a healthy respect for each other. Most of this is true of the relationship between the Bruce Wayne Batman and the Hal Jordan Green Lantern. But what of the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern and his relationship with either Bruce or Dick Grayson?
Recently we got a peek into that rapport in Green Lantern Corps #54. Without going…
