Comic fans are all talking about the new Batman limited series Battle for The Cowl. With Batman’s apparent death during Final Crisis, Gotham City is in shambles, criminals are running wild and everyone’s fighting to assume the authority that Batman left. Batman RIP was a great story but it looks like Battle for The Cowl is going to top it. I love the great level of chaos that’s happening in the pages of the Bat titles. Dick Grayson’s trying to keep the piece but still refuses to assume the Mantle of the Bat even though Tim Drake is urging him to do so. And the appearance of a new Batman that does not have the conscience of the real Batman is throwing everyone for a loop.
DC Comics has said that the events that are happening right now will have far reaching repercussions in the Batman universe. I can’t wait to find out what it’s going to be.
And speaking of repercussions, I am also eagerly awaiting the big things that are going to happen with Green Lantern. But that’s another blog post.
