The first part of "Whatever Happened To The Caped Crusader" was both brilliant and...pretty crazy. The pairing of Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert was one that I thought I'd never see on a Batman comic. A deluxe hardcover edition of this two part story will be released on July 22. I'm curious how a hardcover release of just two issues will be like. Perhaps there will be lots of extras included. Part Two (Detective Comics #853) hits stands today. Here is the cover courtesy of DC's The Source.
Will you pick up this hardcover? How much would you be willing to pay for a two-issue hardcover? I admit I'll be reeeeally tempted when this comes out. That is a sweet looking cover.
EDIT: I just read that this will also collects Gaiman stories from SECRET ORIGINS #36, SECRET ORIGINS SPECIAL #1 and BATMAN BLACK AND WHITE #2.
