News from Wondercon!
You may have already heard about this, I'm sure you did, but we tell you anyway, All Star Batman & Robin is DEAD! I know that might please and/or distress some of you out there, but wait! There's more! The creative team from All Star Batman and Robin (Frank Miller, Jim Lee) recently announced that they will be working on another project entitled Dark Knight: Boy Wonder.
This story is set to take place in the same universe as many of the other Miller Bat-Books such as Year One, Dark Knight Returns, and The Dark Knight Strikes Again (DKR2). This universe is both loved and hated equally, and All Star Batman & Robin is heavily criticized as an atrocity to the Gotham universe, but personally, as a fan of the Year One/DKR Universe, I am hopeful, if not optimistic about this comic.
Overall, Frank Miller hasn't been able to write to the same caliber recently as he has in his past days, and with projects such as The Spirit motion picture, I think it would be best to go in to this comic skeptical, but on the other hand, THE JIM LEE ART IS FANTASTIC!
Be on the look out for this book to appear in February in 2011, or don't. We won't be mad, we'll still cover it!
