I totally disagree with that opinion. What sucks is the loooong delays between issues of All-Star Batman & Robin.

Jim Lee was interviewed at the '09 San Diego Comic-Con about his work on the MMORPG DC Universe Online game. Jim Lee said about All-Star Batman & Robin's lateness: "It is completely my fault. Frank Miller has written the issues and it's just me finding the time to sit down and draw the pages and I feel horrible that it's fallen so far behind. But at the same time enough time has passed where people are thinking 'is it continuing?' So when we come back, and we have some issues in the drawer, that we're really releasing the second half of the story. Luckily it kind of ended on a emotional sort of, not high point, but in the first half of the story it gave you a sense of completion at the end because Batman has accepted Robin as his sidekick essentially and the second half of the story will obviously deal with the mystery of why Robin's parents were killed and how the Joker fit into all of this. I am working on drawing it. There's some killer Gotham City spreads. You know we did that whole Batcave pull out where you could see the whole Batcave and all the cool stuff in it. I'm doing a five page Gotham City pull out where your gonna see the whole city from the Batcopters point of view. It's dynamite. There's some killer stuff in it."

Dan DiDio said to Newsarama, "I believe Jim is working on All Star Batman and Robin right now, and they’re technically scheduling another six issues of that series. But we’re holding off announcing and soliciting it until we have enough in the can, so that we can hit a schedule that meets everyone’s expectations. I think that will run us up to #16."

And here Dan DiDio officially conforms, "Jim Lee’s working on All Star Batman and Robin with Frank Miller. I can say officially now that he and Frank are committed to six more issues of All Star Batman and Robin, and that will bring the story to a close. And they’re working on them now."

Neal Adams has had a long head start on Batman: Odyssey, and unlike Jim Lee he hasn't been balancing it with making a MMORPG for DC, so all issues of the initial Batman: Odyssey series are already drawn and in the process of being inked and can be released on a monthly schedule. Neal Adams says it is in the process of being scheduled for a June 2010 release. Each issue is inked by a different inker, including Scott Williams and Kevin Nowlan. And there will be a part-2 of Batman: Odyssey called Underworld.
