August 27, 2013 7:34 pm If I recall, it was originally produced as a direct to video feature, us Warner Bros. decided last minute to push it into theaters just before Christmas, so it had virtually zero marketing behind it. It's a shame, but I think it's had some solid numbers on VHS/DVD sales. It is clearly the best interpretation of Batman in film.

August 23, 2013 11:30 pm For my part, I will sincerely apologize. Though, speaking for only myself, there is not one iota of hatred or contempt in my heart towards a country I greatly admire. I can say that my intent is more from a place of ill-advised ribbing, much in the same way I'll gladly be the first to contribute to any gun-toting, obese, entitled and ignorant American stereotype. Canada is great and has often times, deservedly so, been referred to as "America except with all of our ideals applied properly". I'd also argue it's the greatest national anthem. So, while some of the above comments may have seemed to be in jest, to actually participate in an activity that hurts someone is always something we can do without. Anyway, I like comics, you like comics, let's all just raise a glass of our favorite beverage to good times.

August 1, 2013 12:06 am Thanks for this write up Jeff, splendid job of a very difficult task. Morrison's run is something I believe should be celebrated. It is intricately complicated, arguably unnecessarily so (I don't think so, but I understand the argument), but Morrison shines brighter with perhaps his greatest superhero writing asset: getting to the core of the character. Throughout the entire thread we follow "the hole in things" and how it has shaped Batman throughout time, both real time and time traveling aspects and we discover "the secret of the Batman - He was never alone" and that the myth has always been larger than just one man. In the beginning, the middle and the end, it is made abundantly clear: Batman and Robin will never die! Thanks, Grant.
July 26, 2013 5:24 pm Well, I'm pleasantly surprised that Paul was pleasantly surprised. Was hoping for a moody, character driven piece starring Marvel's most oft-used mutant and sounds like they largely accomplished that. Still though, can't help but wonder at what could have been had Aronofsky stayed aboard.
July 25, 2013 11:45 pm Talk about creating atmosphere! Lee and Chung have successfully created a realm where anything can happen and everything feels smoky and sinew-y, but without losing just a touch of the whimsical. Pak is really excelling at having his characters speak volumes by having them speak very succinctly; there's no monologues or other superhero speak in this book. I am just stunned that this book sits on the rack amongst the other books currently bearing a DC logo. And of course, great write up Conor.
