10 bucks says this event ends with Alfred donning and cape and cowl...

'DC is proud to present the newest member of the Bat-family. for years he's aided Batman and his allies, now is the time for him to stand along side them... no longer will he just be the butler, he is now the BAT-LER'

@Mucklefluga: No its Bruce I found a longer preview on the batman facebook page. Still just as much of a cliff hanger. But as the article says last page on buzzfeed.

i cant imagine a joker so wicked that even harley is scared. this comic story arc is going down in comic book history.

#22 Posted by CRTrobinson (270 posts) - - Show Bio

I was a huge marvel fanboy and never like DC comics. This guy changed all that. Snyder is absolutely brilliant and this series is the best thing going for either company. HOOKED!

It's only three pages but eh. I hope Snyder doesn't turn this into a 12 issue story, he's too plodding; although I guess it works with a suspense story like this.

It's going to be amazing! Batman and Swamp Thing are 2 of my favorite books because everything Snyder touches turns to gold. I like how the car battery just says "Die" on it haha

@EdwardWindsor: i admire your resolve bother, may the force be with you in your patience

I'm sure this issue will get 5 stars from certain reviewers. Every other Snyder Bat-issue seems to get that as its automatic rating.

#34 Posted by MuyJingo (1572 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm worried about this event after the court of owls storyline. Will it be entertaining? No doubt. What worries me is more retcons and introductions of villains as a tool to move the story alongt, rather than being written semi-realistically.

Can't wait for this!:D 
I still can't stop myself reading Batman's lines in Kevin Conroy's voice in my head:D

I laughed a lot from that.

Can't keep my eyes from coming unglued to the screen after looking at this preview...they can't be pried from Snyder's infinite awesomeness...

I'm one of those guys who feel the same way,but I just have a feeling that this issue will actually deserve it.
