    I'll give this a shot. I like Duggan as a writer, and this is a rather unique concept for an "ongoing" at DC. It will be interesting to see who the cast of characters in play are though.

    I always thought it would be awesome to have a "Star Wars" novel, comic or TV series following the everyday life of the everyday people inhabiting the Death Star -- the custodians, the technicians, the kitchen staff.
    That already exists. It's a novel called... wait for it... Death Star.

    Fantastic journalism from CBR! (I didn't now about this either though, interesting)

    Hmmmm I still don't know about this series, I have a bad feeling about Poison Ivy being in it...but I will check it out.

    This series seems intended for a limited run. I can't see Arkham permanently moved into Wayne Manor.
    I think a maxi series would interest me more as I would be more confident that the series was moving towards an intended goal.

    I thought this looked pretty dumb at first, but I'll give it a chance.

    the fact that this needs an explanation is kind of jarring

    This just would work much much MUCH better as a Elseworlds kind of miniseries

    I'm all for it. I like new interesting ideas, and this looks like a good one.

    CBR interviewer does a bad job of not bringing up that the Arkham Manor sits right over top the BATCAVE.

    This title sounds pretty interesting to me. For sure not something we see everyday.

    Pretty obvious move. The Manor and Batcave should have the best security in Gotham. Bruce can keep an eye on all his enemies, at all times. He'll be the first to know if they escape. If they do they'll literally be right outside of his house so he can apprehend them quickly.

    Oh and the "new mask"? My guess is he's going to assume the identity of a psychiatrist (much likes he assumes Matches Malone's identity) to try and heal his rogue gallery.
