Hey guys,

Cool. You look like somebody that can help me. All these Batman books with Morrison are confusing. Especially since they all seem to share the same type of covers but ones that seem they are after others are already out. Let me explain.

Okay - I've got on pre-order releasing later this month "Batman, Vol. 1: Batman & Son vs. the Black Glove: Deluxe Edition". The confusing thing is that there seems to be other Black Glove, Batman and Son trades out there. Is this the start of a new edition of what's already been put out? Because they seem similar looking to some of the editions that are out already - at least cover wise. Then I also have Absolute Batman and Robin coming in December or so. Is Batman & Son vs the Black Glove the beginning of his run? Should I find something earlier related to all these events? I already have the latest HC Batman Inc trade as well. This is so confusing.
