“The Search for Batman” starts here! Vanishing Point – where time ends – is tearing itself apart, and one of the keys to keeping reality from being torn asunder is finding exactly where Bruce Wayne is in the time stream! Rip Hunter puts together a high-powered band of Time Masters to travel throughout history in search of the World’s Greatest Detective, but can even the combined might and skill of Superman, Green Lantern and Booster Gold help the Time Master pinpoint where Batman went at the end of FINAL CRISIS?

DCU fans won’t want to miss this 6-issue companion series to the highly anticipated BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE (see page 77)!

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Booster Gold and GL… Yep I’m in. 

  2. Excited for this. Here’s hoping it’s a tale worth telling and not just an effort to capitalize on the success of Morrison’s Batsaga. Either way, I’m on board. Bring the fun, Jurgens!

  3. DAN JURGENS has not let me down,  I will be reading this story.

  4. I wonder if this will explain why Hal was in two places at once with the last ‘ROBW’ issue? 😉

  5. I’d normally be all over this, but there’s that four dollar price point.

    Hopefully I’ll be able to find a cheap set on ebay after it wraps up.  Of course, I’ll be on pins and needles till then wondering if Bruce Wayne is coming back or not!

  6. @tomo there’s no need for the pens and needles. just look at the October solicits on DC’s website.

  7. Still can’t decide if I am beat for this or not.  I might be better off just tradewaiting it, unless there is actually something in here that makes ROBW easier to understand, or it is necessary to get the big picture.  Otherwise, I can wait.

  8. Unless this is super wonderfully awesome (which it won’t be) I’m passing.  Same goes for Emerald Warriors.

  9. I don’t know…it put the overall meaning of Return Of Bruce Wayne into an easy to digest perspective, but the story just wasn’t engaging at all. I’m definitely not going to keep buying a book that’s only purpose is to be utilitarian instead of telling a good story.

  10. I liked the story and Supernova finally got off the couch. Of course there is always the question of who is in the Supernova suit.

  11. Anyone else notice that this is listed at $2.99 on the DC website? I was a little annoyed to see the card-stock overcharge.

  12. My shop didn’t get it. 🙁

  13. This wasn’t bad, but it felt wordy and could have used a bit more linearity. But I’m willing to give it a shot. I love the new spin on Rip Hunter we’ve gotten since Infinite Crisis. 3.5/5

  14. It was so nice to get a Booster Gold story after jumping off the main book a couple months back. I really enjoyed this.

  15. I liked this! Felt kinda old school.

  16. I have no idea who this Rip Hunter character is but I still liked this. Just might pick up some trades of Booster Gold if I can enjoy them without becoming lost due to DC continuity.

  17. @Howl4me I was able to jump in pretty easily. And I love the series. It actually helps explain some DC continuity because he is always traveling back in time to the origins of heroes because that is where supervillains try to strike.
