    I'm really excited to see where the Batman line ends up, with Robin Rises on the horizon too.
    I have a couple of issues of BE to catch up on(think I'm on 9), anyway should be enough till July 16th!

    And now, we sort of know why "Arkham Manor" is happening, and as some here correctly guessed, it has to do with Batman Eternal:

    And then secondarily, this book, "Arkham Manor," it takes place in continuity, spinning out of events from "Batman Eternal," that Wayne Manor is basically repossessed by the state, and because they have nowhere to put all of these -- [DC PR interrupts: "Don't give it all away!" Snyder laughs] They have to use Wayne Manor as Arkham, essentially, while they rebuild Arkham, because it's off-site, it's outside the city and it's the biggest place they got. It's incredible fun and Gerry Duggan is a good friend; part of the idea was to do an issue that we got to co-write and would use one of our friends, Mateo Scalera, who I just really adore. We were away together at the D.I.C.E. convention in Ireland, and I love his work on "Black Science" and everything. So it was about doing an issue that would allow me to do a small detective story for once! It's like, let's do a one-shot with Leslie Thompkins and a new killer! [Laughs] Its just Batman as a detective, between these two massive arcs.
    Though, Wayne Manor being "repossessed by the state" isn't how I expected it to play out.

    Holy Sh!t... is FM ok? He looks like he has aged a decade or two in just a few years, he looks skinny as hell too. I hope he is not ill.

    I'm sure that grainy pic isn't doing him any favors, but yeah, I hope he's doing okay.

    Miller smokes, but it's simply because he's shaved that he looks older now.

They might be a drag for a moment, but after that moment is over, it always ends up being gasoline to my fire." - Quentin Tarantino

    The opposite is usually true, but he also looks hairless and skinnier.



    That's from 2008.

    I think the facial hair just obscured his wrinkles.

    Anyway, so I'm guessing Bruce is going to need to evacuate the Bat-cave.

    Love the haircut comment.

    Miller's a great hair and clothes artist (as are Chaykin, Toth, Mazzuchelli, Jim Lee) and it brings something out in Batman, especially. Batman comics should look fashionable.

    Seriously. He looks like Freddy Kruger in this pic.

    Can't wait for the Zero Year finale, just so I can put it behind me.
    Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!

    Whoa, Frank's gotten old.

    If that's the result of him shaving, makes you wonder what Alan Moore looks like under all that hair.

    Sigh...the more Snyder talks, the less I want to read his books.
    If you are not reading Lazarus, you should be.
