    FANTASTIC!! This sounds great. I Can't wait for this to come out. The first 10 issues was the freshest take of Batman and the Batman/Robin relationship that has ever been produced. Its not canon, but with something like thsi you dont really want it to be, but you most definatly want it to be out there to consume.

     

    I am so glad that Lee returned to this title now that his schedule is clearing up.

     

    Oh, and to the haters......HA! you're hilarious.

    After Cry for Justice, The JLA issues so far, and about 50% of his Superman work, why is Robbinson considered such a good writer?

    He had Starman, but that should only be able to carry you so far before he would need to produce something else worthwhile to maintain his stance as a high calibre writer.

    Regardless of the editorial mandates placed upon him, he is not making it work.

    April 1, 2010 10:22 pm @PraxJarvin but the problem I see is that the collected editions will collect the three titles separatly. I am now going to go back and re-read BN without the other titles to see how that stands up, but I now for sure already that GL will not make much, if any, sense without BN. Just look at the massive jump in the sequence of events between the last two issues.

    I had a number of problems with Blackest Night, but overall I think it was a good ride.

    Some people have mentioned event fatigue, I dont really agree with this but I do think BN suffered from "Gimmick Fatigue", in that the impact of th gimmick (dead characters rising, alive character struggle with their emotions related to that person etc) became VERY tiresome after a while.

     i also think the structure wasn't the best with the main story crossing over between BN and GL. Not much of an issue at the moment but when it comes to the collected editions, with DC collected the two titles separatly, I believe it will become a major issue and prevent BN truely standing the test of time.

     This story could have been told in a much shorter span of time and made for a much better reading experience. BN = too much filler.

     

    What happebed to Ted and Ralph?

    This is great news.

    And to think we thought 2010 was going to be the year of Superman and Green Arrow. Between this and Johns on  Earth One,  2010 is looking to be a very exciting time for Batman!

    I feel that in producing it as an OGN results in the story structure of the overall product being drastically different from multiple single issues, which results in a far more satisfying read. that alone has me excited.

    In talking about the book store market, while I see it as making the product more available to a wider audience, my interest in it lies in seeing how deep that market is in terms of financial profit for the good of the industry...yes, these two points can be one in the same, but im far less interested in making the content accessible for new readers than I am in capitalising in on the profitability of the industry.  

    I feel that the wider audience potential has only been scratched on the surface, and taking chances on products like this will allow the industry to see how deep that well is. And then it can be exploited for the good of the industry in long term.

    Why do you see a need for it to be "new and original" to be worth a damn?

    It got announced less than 24 hours ago, and it hasnt even been solicited yet. So how can you speak of who knows or doesn't know about it at this stage and relate it to who will end up buying it? 

     

    Comics have always struggled with the conundrum of making their material accessable to new readers without alienating the current audience. This seems like a very good attempt at doing both.

     

    And if it doesnt bring in new readers...who cares? We, the current readers, get a bunch of new OGN's of Bats and Supes! How cool is that! Its a gift to us as much as it is a gift to the creators. And what a gift it is to the creators....work on our main line of books and be rewarded with creative freedom on the biggest characters in the industry! cool.

    So is it assumed that these two titles will be in the same continuity? 

    The titles Earth One makes me assume that they will be, but do we know for sure?

    I thought "New Earth" was the name after IC and 52 of the main DCU.

     bah, they're just numbers, and bottom line is..its different. Thinking too much about it is pointless and painful ;-)
