Batman & Robin! Number one!
Today is a huge day. How often do you get to buy a first issue of a regular Batman series? This is the first time in my lifetime, as far as I know. Let alone a Batman #1 illustrated by Frank Quitely (Flex Mentallo, All Star Superman) and written by Grant Morrison (everything good, ever).
Morrison’s run on the “normal” Batman book was amazing and it totally set this shit up. If you haven’t been paying attention: there is a new Batman, there is a new Robin, and it is going to be awesome. Here is a direct quote from Morrison: “With the collections out, we’ve got Batman & Son, we’ve got The Black Glove, we’ve got Batman R.I.P., and then we’ve got this one, Batman & Robin, and then, hopefully, there will be a final volume, a fifth volume.”
I am excited, to the point of contention. Fuck Grant Morrison for making comics fun again!
