?I love it when major newspapers cover comics news. It’s a very clear and easy-to-read sign that I should probably cover the news as. Today’s news? The New York Post says that when Batman returns from his time-traveling adventures, Batman will be sticking around. Which is to say when Bruce Wayne returns to the present and becomes Batman, Dick Grayson will also be sticking around as Batman, and Damian Wayne will still be his Robin. Two Batmans! Batmen! From DC’s Source:
Starting in November, DETECTIVE COMICS, BATMAN and BATMAN AND ROBIN
will feature the ongoing adventures of Dick Grayson as Batman, with
Damian as Robin. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne will take center stage in the
pages of Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s BATMAN INC. and
writer/artist David Finch’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT.
Sounds groovy to me. By all indication Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin is one of the best comics going, and it’d be a shame to call that off just because Bruce is back in town. Plus, it’s not like there haven’t been like six Batman comics going at a time — it probably makes more sense to have two guys wearing the cowl. What do you guys think?
