Chances are you have heard the news about what happened in BATMAN INCORPORATED #8. There was a death. A member of the Bat-Family is no more. After a fierce battle, one of Batman's soldiers is dead.

If you haven't read it, seen the cover or managed to somehow avoid all the news, stop reading this now. BuzzFeed exclusively revealed Bat-Family title covers that deal with the death. At least most of them seem to be dealing with the death.


We've read the solicit before. We knew Batman was dealing with something and was "in danger of losing his humanity." The death of not just another Robin, but the death of his actual son will definitely have a huge impact on him.

You can see the cover is by Greg Capullo, who is not doing the interiors for this issue. Andy Kubert jumps in for this one. He also does a variant cover for BATMAN #18.

Will Batman put the costume in a glass case? There didn't seem to be much of it left. Perhaps they'd put in a replacement costume in to honor Damian and to make sure he remembers not to let this happen again.

== TEASER ==


We would expect some big fallout in this issue as well. It's a pretty harsh cover.

Below you can click on each image to see the covers to BATGIRL #18, BATMAN AND ROBIN #18, NIGHTWING #18, WORLDS' FINEST #10, CATWOMAN #18 (not much of a reaction), RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #18 (another strange "reaction" cover), TEEN TITANS #18 (if you read 17, you might have an idea why Tim appears to be smirking) and DETECTIVE COMICS #18 (first revealed by Newsarama).

Some of these are really good. I like the Andy Kubert one the best.

Absolutely beautiful artwork but this looks really upsetting. Gonna need to get tissues out while reading these.

I really like the first one.

Those are some good looking covers.

Why does Tim look like he just killed Robin o.o

#9 Posted by wessaari (632 posts) - - Show Bio

Tim's possessed, Jason's going all hardcore, Dick, Babs, and Helena are mourning and Batman is going through his "dead robin" routine again. He will get even more darker and even more broody, but the kid is his son so I expect this impact will last a while. So craps going down in the Bat verse, no one is having a happy day

I can't wait for the fallout in the Nightwing comic.

I love them all but Tim's face looks creepy

#13 Posted by Mutie199 (135 posts) - - Show Bio

Did Damian really have to die? The Batman an Robin series made me like him a lot and its not going to be the same without him :/ I really like Capullos' cover cause its simple but effective and Nightwing's cover because it really shows his pain and sorrow

#14 Posted by natewhite192 (16 posts) - - Show Bio

looks like tim has lost his mind and jason is about to go on a killing spree

#15 Posted by EvanTheMexiJew (99 posts) - - Show Bio

The Inc one actually gave me a jolt. I also really like the B&R; cover and Nightwing.

#16 Posted by Trevel8182 (754 posts) - - Show Bio

Love Tim's reaction, he hated that little bastard!

#17 Posted by impossibilly (892 posts) - - Show Bio

@EvanTheMexiJew: Yeah, and I'm going to a funeral Friday...but comics and real life are two separate things.

His line to Grayson was heartwrenching.

I don't think he's possessed so much as under the influence of some special Joker toxin (Jason Todd may be as well, judging from the end of Red Hood #17 and the cover for #18)

The Capullo cover has to be one of the best covers of all time. So powerful.

I liked the RHatO cover a lot more before they revealed the bottom half; first of all it's obviously misleading, and second of all Starfire.

Damnit, I'm a few issues behind and I haven't been reading Batman Inc. but I'm really hoping that they don't keep Damien dead.

That World's Finest cover hits me right in the feels... Mourning the brother she never had.

#31 Posted by InnerVenom123 (29510 posts) - - Show Bio

The cover for Nightwing is unintentionally hilarious.

#32 Posted by deadpool25mm (609 posts) - - Show Bio

WTF Damian is dead? when did this happen?! and who did it?!

#33 Edited by MeloDet (48 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I might be more excited for the fallout in Nightwing than Batman now that I think about it. Bruce tends to bottle it up and while it may be more difficult this time, Dick was very close to Damian and his reaction could be more emotional than Bruce's.

#34 Posted by JamDamage (1118 posts) - - Show Bio

some of these are just insanely great

#35 Posted by sora_thekey (8184 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like the Batgirl cover... I think it's the most emotional.

that Lazarus thing can bring him back right?

What in the world possessed me to read this article before I read the story arc? That was without a doubt one of the stupidest mistakes of my life.

I ones with the robin bird are the best ones in my opinion. I grew to love Damian over the issues, he never really felt out of place. Maybe it's cause he was young but he always felt like he was truly Robin. That annoying little brother who you can't help but love in the end

#40 Posted by Lvenger (21066 posts) - - Show Bio

Capullo's cover is pretty stark and grim. Just the kind of cover I'd expect from him. Hope this is the main cover for Batman 18. Given the touching Dick and Damian moment before his death, I hope Dick takes Damian's death badly. Can't believe Tim looks like a huge jerk though. WTF is up with him?

Morrison:"Death of the Family by Snyder? Ha! Wait for the REAL DOTF."

Damn. That Batman Inc cover is... grim.

#43 Posted by Duo_forbidden (1161 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like all the covers. The Teen Titans one I can understand considering the recent issue. If I didn't read it, I would had been mad.

What they're all thinking in the covers...

Haven't had chance to read Batman Inc. 8 yet unfortunately so I have no idea what all this is about...
