Anybody else see this at CBR today:
http://www.comicbookresources.com/columns/index.cgi?column=13In June/July, DC are killing off Batman. Or rather, Bruce Wayne. Robin will inherit the Batman cowl. One of the Robins anyway. Tim Drake. Jason Todd. Or possibly Red Hood. Hey, maybe Jean-Paul Valley, it has been ten years since Azrael.
Either way, the book will relaunch with a nice shiny #1.
Wonder how long that'll last and is it just me or does it all sound very Captain America! Carl S BlakebroughQuando Omni Flunkus Moritati

This had better not be true. I hope the people at DC are smart enough to realize that killing Batman, only to bring him back later with some ridiculous pre-earth-multiple-crisis-alternate-universe-we're-making-less-money-now stunt to justify his miraculous resurrection, would only cheapen one of the most compelling and enduring characters in comics. He's been around for almost 70 years. He's not going anywhere. I hope no one at DC is pretending otherwise.
