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....



> 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.

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.
