> I can't belive no ones talking about batman R.I.P, i admit it isnt the most exciting arc going on right now but it promises to have a drastic change in the dark knights life, alfred was takien out already...any thoughts?


I'm enjoying it. The most surprising thing for me so far has been the online response to the art, which in my opinion has been terrible, but as far as the story goes I really don't know where it's leading us, and that's exciting. After reading the last issue I expected there to be endless debates and much righteous indignation concerning the "revelations" about Bruce's parents and Alfred, but yeah, it's weird that no one seems to care. I think it's symptomatic of how jaded we comic book fans have gotten, where we can recognize the latest issue wasn't exactly the climax of the story, so it's unlikely this issue will mean a lot. I think it's all been bit of misdirection so far, so I'm not watching the hand in the air but trying to see what the hand behind Morrison's back is doing. I have no doubt it'll be cool when he finally pulls his "abracadabra" moment, but it hasn't happened yet.
