@G-Man: Just so long as his editor actually does their job and steers him away from rubbish endings like Death of The Family (which was metaphoric death and just a lame ending) or Court of Owls (I checked it out when I was 12, everythings fine...oh hang on!) Otherwise it just may as well be this:

"It’s not ‘let’s redo the origin.' It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in the New 52."

This sentence is actually hilarious.

We are not redoing the origin, we are telling a new origin story. ^^

I laughed at that one,not cause of the statement itself but because of the idiots who are eventually gonna hail it as the best Batman origin story ever.

Oh and Zero year? Death of the Family? I like how these are supposed to evoke classic stories like Death in the Family and Year:One,nice way to market them,they're already classics and I couldn't care less for these mediocre,repetitive stories.

Well said, mate. As usual, I agree completely.

I'm quite intrigued by this. We've had One, we've had Two...only natural we have a Year Zero now. But if they do this for Batman, clearly they should do it for others in New 52, don't you think?

Yeah, I don't want Batman Zero Year... I want a DC: Zero Year and I want them to re-think this shoddy '5 year' deal and come up with something a little more cohesive that makes sense. Heck, I remember post-Crisis, DC actually made a timeline to help readers make sense of the new universe... the New 52 is BADLY in need of it, but I suspect even the best writers at DC couldn't figure out the timeline now.

And it doesn't get past me that most of us are long-time readers with great memories and still trying to make sense of what happened before with what happens now... I get that.

But what I want to know is... are there any 'brand new' readers out there, who don't know anything... they don't know any Crisis or Blackest Nights... and does the 5 year thing make sense to them? When a brand new reader picks up Batgirl and there's references to her paralysis, is it intriguing or confusing? For us long time readers its all convoluted and lame and not exciting at all, but I wonder if the mission, to appeal to newbies, is really doing what its meant to do?

I swear it seems like there is no pleasing people. I wonder why people read comics when most all of the time I read negative after negative post. Yes, we are all entitled to our own opinion, but at some point I just have to think people aren't being realistic. For that matter people seem to not have gotten over the fact that the New 52 happened. I hear tell new stories this and that and on Snyder's point, he has. Court of Owls and really Death of the Family wasn't a retelling of anything. It used a lot of tropes but that was it. This is the origin story for Batman in the New 52. Yes, there is Batman Earth One, Miller's Year One, and so on, but they aren't all within the same timeline, so what does it matter? This is giving people what they wanted. Clarification as to the beginning of Bats and I am sure they will touch on the ever so sensitive Robin issue more than they have. I mean, the potential for it to not offer anything new is there and I will assess that after it's been released but this comic is like 3 or 4 months from just beginning? I for one can't wait for Snyder to cement his ideas across the N52 Batman mythos. In no way does this harm the Bats I grew up with and fell in love with, but if it can retain that great tone, characterization and attitude and offer a new point of view, and things we haven't seen before, which is all but guaranteed, then what's the harm?

That cover is beautiful.

Sounds interesting. Like that TV series they almost did, but it never hit off, so they recycled the idea into Smallville. But this sounds good.

it is suppose to go more into the details of his training which has only been touched on when it is nessasary for the story so i think it will be cool to finally get an official timeline

I can't wait for this, but what happened to the BIG RIDDLER story he was going to do? Or is the Riddler the first villain he faces in his early years?
