I just caught up on my reading & All Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder is way out of hand. First, they're up to #7 and no Robin yet. Second, they repeat "Goddamn Batman" constantly which wasn't funny to begin with & is just being done cause fans complained about it. Third, Bats bags Black Canary with masks on, way out of character. Fourth, even more out of character is Bats becoming worse than the Punisher in treatment of criminals.

I thought Miller knew Batman. I could understand a wacked out Bats in Dark Knight because that was in the "future" in a totally violence, out of control world. He seemed to get him right in Year One. But he's lost it in DK2 & All Star.

He lost a Poker game to Dan Didio and so Dan says "write the most ridiculously over-the-top bad '80s action movie Batman that you can."

And thus ASB&R was born....

That sounds like a pretty decent pitch. Actually, it sounds like a really good pitch. Amazon has the hardcover due out June 3rd, 2008 ... I don't think it will be, though. In the meantime I wait ... and read every online spoiler I can find.

Why do you think the fact that "Bats bags Black Canary with masks on" is "way out of character?"

With the exception of Tali, who has Bruce ever slept with who knew he was Batman? He never did anyone with the suit on & certainly not some spontaneous sex with a stranger right after a fight. Bruce Wayne isn't an out of control uber macho guy who takes whatever he wants.
