    Awesome. I've only read a tiny sampling of the Bat-Manga, but I'll certainly check this out.

    Excellent! Very much looking forward to this. Oh and I love your avatar too. Nicely done.

    Can NOT fault DC for doing this. Very cool.

    I am excited for this.

    I have a copy of the hardcover book from 2008/2009 (not sure). I'm going to wait for a collected edition of the new releases. Glad to see the whole thing finally coming out

    Oh yes, this is great news. A very good manga, especially notable because of its vintage. I'm especially happy they managed to find the rest of the missing strips.

    I hope they release this in manga digest format and sell it in the manga section of Barnes and Noble.

    How many of the stories in Kidd's book are complete vs. few page fragments? This comic looks really cool, but I kinda dig the vintage paper texture and all those photos of crazy merchandise and promotional art that I've glimpsed in the Kidd book.

    Kidd's book has whole issues printed, but not many full storylines. there were a couple that i was intrigued on how they ended, but at the time the originals were not available. thankfully, that has been resolved with the digital series.

    and some of the memorabilia/merchandise is awesome!

    Hmmmm... if Kidd's book is mostly incomplete stories I think I'll go with the new series.

    BTW, I think Kuwata draws the best Robin I've ever seen.

    I really enjoyed the Lord Death Man story arc and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

    I love the presentation of the strips in the Kidd book, but these are pretty fun presented cleanly, too.
