Grant Morrison Comics: What If There’s No Secret Message?

By Nas Hoosen I remember an article about Batman #655, Grant Morrison’s first issue of what would become his seven-year Batman run, from around the time that issue hit shelves. I can’t remember who published it anymore but one thing I do recall is its author’s obsessive examination of that first issue for layers of […]

The Cereal Killers Of Gotham

Pretty much any cereal mascot you can think of has a Batman duplicate. Apparently. Which is why Christopher Wolf is taking them and putting them on T-shirts.

The Disappearance Of Jason Todd – Wednesday Trending Topics

I love these little preview/final page changes that pop up publicly from DC from time to time. And so do the rest of you, my analytics tell me.

Tom Strong knows the score. So, today, that’s exactly what I did. And here’s what I thought. Grant Morrison’s Batman comes to an end. Not with a bang, but with a moo and a miaow. It’s a time of reckoning, a look back through the entire run, a meeting with Commissioner Gordon and a kiss […]

The Other Batman Inc #9 Funeral

So, Damian Wayne. His life, his death, his funeral. Batman Inc #9. But someone else died in recent issues too, and he gets his own funeral.
