Shame this series is ending Burnham could have written it. I get the sense that this book may feel like it is dragging to some because something big will happen in the last issue and this series and the rest of the Bat books need to get ready.

@foxxfireart: The first volume of Batman Inc before the reboot was intended to be more sexy and fun until Talia was revealed as the villain The New 52 version became the darkest part of Grant Morrison's Batman. I am sure this is not only being published to give Burnham more time to finish the last two issues but to be light hearted before the characters probably go away.

@foxxfireart: Lolita Canary is actually older than Fraction's FF since she first appeared in Final Crisis. Many of these weird things have been present in Morrison's run at DC and it just looks like this and the Batman Inc special are a last look at them.

He revamped several concepts making the old feel new exactly what The New 52's goal has been the whole time. Yet he leaves. After so many writers and artists just leaving it seems obvious to blame DC again.

@superdork:

Pax Americana - Charlton Earth heroes as Watchmen

Thunderworld - Captain Marvel Earth

The Just - Young heroes as celebrities.

SOS - Superheroes as pulp heroes

Mastermen - Overman and Freedom Fighters

Earth Prime - This Earth

Along with two bookend chapters (I think featuring President Superman) as well as a source book.

So yeah should be a good read.

I have been looking forward to both projects since they were announced. That page from Wonder Woman looks like a twist on the George Perez run.

I am starting to think it is Terry Sloan. It is because they fought before and the fact that Sloan was suppose to be the ultimate alpha male yet he shared a world with Bruce Wayne and lost a fight it must have gotten under his skin. Continuing the comic book tradition of villains dressing as heroes he becomes Batman.

The fight in the rain was really incredible. Agreed that it does stick to a familiar formula but it is a very good read.

At this point the book really feels like a traditional DC super hero comic compared to how it started. Another great issue.

Amazing trailer really builds up towards the end.
