DC held one of their first panels focusing on their creators and Grant Morrison was the center of attention. Most of the talk was referring to Morrison's future work on Superman in the New 52, but there was some talk about Batman and how his Batman will work into the relaunch. Here are the highlights.
-Batman Incorporated will fit into the Batman line, which will launch in January.
-Morrison has no plans for Dr. Hurt or Scarlet appearing in his Batman work before his story's end.
-Leviathan is more about Bruce and Damian than Dick and Damian, and therefore works with the…

The final issue of the Judd Winnick penned Batman and Robin arc is upon us. We open with the unnamed villain from issue 24 listening to poor Scarlet talk about how Jason Todd is coming for her. Meanwhile, Jason, dressed as Red Hood, is making idle chit-chat at Batman and Robin, complaining about how the Batmobile smells of pine now. When Robin dismisses him, saying the inane jabbering won't disarm or unbalance them, Red Hood says puberty will loosen Damian up, if he lives that long.

Batman and Robin #24 is the second issue in the latest three-issue arc. Written by Judd Winick, with art by Greg Tocchini, the issue lacks some of the finesse of the last issue.
We open with another flashback to Jason Todd as Robin, learning from Batman the most important skill they have: adaptability. When faced with a situation of the unknown, step up and take control. It leads right into the extraction team, known as the Menagerie, freeing Jason Todd.
He's upset. For…

Philip Tan must feel like the middle child in a family of celebrities. No matter how solid his art may be, it will never live up to his “older brother” Frank and his “younger brother” Cameron. Tan’s collaboration with Grant Morrison and run as primary artist on Batman and Robin will probably be forgotten once this series is done, but his style and tone continued the drama in an interesting visual direction even if it wasn’t as magical as his predecessor or as anticipated…

This week, we venture into the particular time that I will refer to as "The Month Bat-Fans Go Broke." Why is that, you ask? Well, there are almost twice as many comics and trades coming out this month than a typical month. What does the first week hold? Well, let’s find out.
Batman and Robin #5
This will be the second issue in the new story arc. If you are still trying to catch up on your…

Don't fix it if it ain't broke. Change for the sake of change is never a good thing. These wise adages prove to be true more often than not. Issue #4 of the incredibly successful Batman and Robin monthly marks the title's artistic debut of Philip Tan. In my opinion, Frank Quitely's unique style and cinematic pacing have made every page of B&R a visually stunning work of art. His mastery of creating emotion and action without the need for narration has even pushed Grant Morrison's writing to…

It’s lonely out there. While every Bat-fan from coast to coast is sitting in front of their gaming console, playing and chatting about the coolest action game of all time; Batman: Arkham Asylum, I’m getting my Batman fix old school….reading comics. I may not know the difference between an Xbox and a PS3, but I can recognize good storytelling and great art. B&R #3 continues its run as the best Bat-book in print, if not the best comic book period. I haven’t been able to find anyone who…
