If they're set for 2010, it's probably later in the year, as these haven't shown up on Amazon.com yet, and they've got Bat-books through August. They might not want to compete with the push of Batman: Reborn titles heading to bookstores in the Spring.

Geoff Johns is a very dependable writer, IMHO; the man can plot a solid story, and has just enough "F*ck YEAH!" moments to keep me entertained. Kind of wish he were on the regular books, but it's nice to see him on a Batman project at any rate.

As for the graphic novel format, it's probably an inevitability. I wouldn't go saying this is the end of the standard comic book, but I've been wrong before.

I don't think Superman: Earth One and Batman: Earth One are the run of the mill gimmick comics by DC.

I think DC has been thinking about this for a real long time and even has done the market research on this.

The time of the single issue comics is coming to an end.

I think Superman: Earth One and Batman: Earth One are supposed to be the future of comics for DC. Currently DC is going to test the waters with this format of a graphic novel series. If it sells well which I believe it will, I think eventually all of DC's line will be made up of similar graphic novel series.

The thing about the single issue comics is that it has reached a point where it is more expensive to have single issues than a graphic novel.

I think though the graphic novel series format won't be the final format either.

I can see the graphic novel series format a decade or two down the line also replaced but this time by a digital visual novel where each reader is actually a player that creates his own version as well as his own story of a comic book publisher's character based on a multiple choice system. (It would be vastly more complicated than today's video games.)

This type of digital visual novel I think could work because every few months DC could add a new chapter to it for download.

The technology for this to happen though still has some ways to go before that, but I would say we are already on the road to this.
