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
(When all else fails, play dead.)
And since that is the case the publishing divison for Batman and all marketable super-heroes is at the beck and call of a major corporation who will do anything to protect its franchises, and potential future franchises, they will not allow Bruce Wayne to stay dead for long, even Aquaman of all people couldn't stay dead after Our Worlds at War because of higher ups at Time Warner, and we're talking about Batman their Number 1 guy, sorry supes its true, once they catch wind of this it would be squashed or relagated to a small storyline not even lasting a full year.
