Paul Dini diverts from his usual one-shot format for this two part tale and once again Zatanna is the focus….

April 19, 2011 1:01 pm Funny you saying you hope no-one brings the Waynes back because Rucka kinda did so with Death and the Maidens. Not meant as a complaint btw. Interesting list and amazing how few characters there are who have stayed dead.

Fascinating article Jim. Really got me thinking about how despite some interesting ideas, I just couldn't stand Morrison's Arkham Asylum. I've really enjoyed his Batman run since the start but have found generally that I'm just not into crazy out-there Morrison so I find it hard to muster the enthusiasm to go and give it another try.


So what I really want to know is how you tell the difference between the ones you're not ready for and the ones that just aren't for you?

@jmstump I do feel its a bit of downgrading in the sense that he's going from Dini to Miller (which is no slight on Miller just on popularity). I do feel Nguyen could be put on a real big book but he did do Detective Comics before so hopefully now he's just working on stuff he really likes.


I would also agree with ohcaroline that Miller's getting progressively better and for people a bit unsure from the first arc, his second with Damien was a huge step up.

Wouldn't be surprise if Streets is cancelled with all of the new Batman books being lauched. Have been loving Batgirl so very excited although don't think the cover is his best work.

 Also much as I've been loving Batgirl I feel Nguyen deserves a shot on a big book

August 3, 2010 3:56 pm It seems ironic to me that he talks about how silly and inappropriate the riddler would be for a story like this (which he of course is) but he then appears to be looking at al Qaeda entirely simplistically. I'd like to think it won't be a one dimensional good v evil story but I'm not gonna hold my breath. Paraphrasing grant Morrison: if you want to fight al Qaeda, go join the army.
July 23, 2010 11:43 am I can no longer see anything related to without cracking up at the idea of Josh's son, Flanagan. Oh Katers, you kill me.

Not sure about how Blake Lively or the domino mask looks but otherwise it looks really cool.

I love that he's wearing the flying jacket!

July 2, 2010 11:23 am He's got a young face so I really don't think the age will be a problem, they tend to be smart about this kind of thing. Also he's an incredibly talented actor. He was in a British film called Boy A which was absolutely superb for anyone who wants to put their fears to rest.
