Morrison says that the two do synch up, it will be in a few months that we will see the tie-in. Besides, Batman's costume changes by the end of "R.I.P." and in "Final Crisis", it's the same one.
| > as for RIP being the climax, it still doesnt make it a good read in my opinion, i have read 52 and the ten eyed man thing but that doesnt add anything to make what is happening now in RIP any more enjoyable. i for one want a coherent and ejoyable story conveyed properly, not just easter eggs in the form of random things plucked from the silver age batman stories that contribute really nothing to the story. and dont get me wrong, i love the silver age and love to see elements of it appear from time to time, but i want it done properly. and what i mean by properly is for it to a be fun and enjoyable read not a confusing and "i have to read the last issue to understand the previous 12 issues" kind of read.|
Well, that's how a mystery sometimes goes.
