God help me, this actually looks kind of cool. Daniel's art looks better than that cover, too, but that might just be because the picture is blurry.

A) The "J" on the Joker card is backwards.
B) The Batman with the yellow chest oval on the left has a bo staff, so that's probably Tim. He seems to be wearing the Batman costume that Bruce wore when Tim became Robin.
C) Harley, lamenting the Joker's absence? Seems kind of crazy, but Daniel is definitely aware of all of Grant's run so it'll probably follow from that.
D) Alfred Pennyworth, loaded for bear. He looks pretty great here, actually.
E) Almost definitely Dick Grayson, wearing the Batman costume that Bruce wore when Dick first became Robin.
G) Two-Face, no doubt, especially since he's positioned right in front of the penny, and he's covering what would be the scarred side of his face. Probably following up on his time as Gotham's protector during 52, as shown in James Robinson's "Face the Face" arc.
H) Jason Todd (who else would have a costume that stupid with all those guns), apparently standing over the coffin of Wayne Enterprises. (Whose arm is that coming out of the coffin - Bruce's? It looks like a woman's...)
I) Batwoman, apparently investigating something, judging by the magnifying glass. I doubt she's actually battling for the cowl (and neither are Harley and Alfred), but she'll probably play a fairly major role.
J) Damian, lookin' sly, tuggin' on the bandage around the leg of...
K) "Bruce Wayne", who, judging by the bandage, is probably actually Hush, who performed plastic surgery on himself to look like Bruce Wayne back in the "Heart of Hush" arc in Paul Dini's [i]Detective Comics[/i]. I assume Damian's using Hush to angle for a place in Bruce Wayne's will, or a spot in Wayne Enterprises or something.

Did I miss anything?

can't wait to see this event unfold:).If Bruce was just the real Bruce Wayne, then why would Vicki Vale be looking into the connections between Batman and Bruce Wayne's disappearances in the Gotham Gazette special?

Kind of reminds me of the Death of Superman back in the 90's when you had the Reign of the Supermen in the 90's upon Kal El's death.

You had Superboy, Steel, The Eradicator, and Cyborg Superman all vying for the mantle of Superman.

In this case I wonder how it will all unfold. I think fans will really only accept Dick or Tim taking up the mantle on a semi-permanent basis until Bruce returns.

I wonder where Batgirl and Azrael are though.

I also wonder where Dick and Tim go from here when Bruce does return. Hmmm.
