check out DCComics.com, it comes out on June 17th:

An all-new Batman series by the DETECTIVE COMICS creative team of Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen! As a new Batman rises on the streets of Gotham City, the heroes, villains and citizens take notice. How will the police feel about this new Batman, and can he control the crime in Gotham the way the old Batman did?

It sould be entertaining, Dini is the best Batman writer in a long time IMO, i hope this doesnt disappoint

There's a new writeup about all the bat titles on ign.com, and what characters will feature in which title.

Streets of Gotham is supposed to feature Batman as the main character, but with stories through the point of view of other characters (villains, cops, supposrting cast members...)
It sounds really good.

It's looking like the new version of Shadow of the Bat which is probably my favorite Batman title of all time. Also Batdick is in it and I'm not too sure about that just yet.

Out of the new ones (Red Robin, Sirens, Batgirl vol. 3 etc.) this is the one I look forward to the most.

In Red Robin it looks like Vicky Vale is back, what brings her back to the batman comics after all this time. Also how are they explaining Bruce Waynes death to the outside world??

If you haven't read Heart of Hush and Faces of Evil, heres something new info for ye!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Hush took a plastic surgery to look like Bruce Wayne, this was his way of living after he had killed Batman. Except he ofcourse failed on the killing part, but he got captured later on by Tim + Dick Grayson whe he went cruising in Australia as Bruce Wayne. In Streets of Gotham #3 we see Bruce returning and Batman has to stop him... wanna guess why?

I figure that they will wait until it's widely known that Batman is back and alive before announcing his "Disappearance" and making Alfred Pennyworth the heir to Wayne Enterprises.

"She's annoying. May I cut out her tongue?"

"Maybe next time, Robin."

lmao I could picture Adam West saying Dick's line with his trademark deadpan delivery for some reason. Dini never fails to make me laugh even more hilarious since I was never a Harley fan.

I really think these guys especially Dini, Rucka and Morrison are cooking up something really interesting for Gotham. With Bruce now gone every single other character has to step up including the villains. I mean for christ sake Hush is actually interesting now, remember that Jeph Loeb his creator couldn't even do that. This is something that has been brewing since Dini and Morrison first hopped on the bat books. A giant plan like what Johns had help set up over in the Supes and GL books. If it was up to me this new era would last at least 5 years. I am seriously sold on it based on the first issue of B&R this preview and the preview to the first issue of Rucka/Williams III 'tec run.

At first I was afraid that Dick was going to be way too much like Bruce, but the "maybe next time Robin" line made it clear that Richard Grayson is going to be a much more fun Batman.

I really liked this preview. So far I know I'm on board for Batman and Robin and Streets of Gotham. Winick's Batman is really going to have to wow me for me to consider it though. I've been burned by his stuff way to much in the past.

Also, I'm new here. I want to say hi. I put a post in another Batman thread I found here. This place is pretty big... I'm still figuring it out. However, I do want to invite Nightwing/Dick Grayson fans to check out my fan site:
www.nightwingfanclub.com

We have a forum too, and now that i have two posts, I plan on putting the link in my signature.

Okay #1 was quite interesting. Firefly is getting the Paul Dini magical touch of awesomeness. He was making poison that made people burned and stuff, ouch. =O Oh and Damian spents time with Hush due to him looking like his old father and they were playing chest. Hush apparently has a television on his house and sees that its his time to get out of the jail and become the Bruce Wayne. >:] Manhunter was an interesting character but i wasn't really convinced yet since this was just the #1 gotta wait and see how she develops.

just read her solo series it's one of the best books DC had on the market before it was canned.

It wasn't poison, it was an incendiary chip that, when activated, caused the victims to spontaneously combust. Pretty brutal. Not to mention, for 4 bucks, the book is well paced and tightly written. I might keep up with this.

Ah well i kinda took the chip thing as a poison but yeah bad usage of words now that you put it that way. Still really brilliant from Paul Dini. =) Next week we get to see Gotham Sirens and something tell me these 2 comics are gonna tie each other alot, especially since Hush is suppose to appear in Gotham sirens aswell.

Gotham Sirens seems interesting. I might check it out. But Detective Comics drops next week, as well. I'm really looking forward to that one.

Does anyone know how long Dini's run will last as I don't get unless his run is not gonna be a long one why they wouldn't let him carry on his story in Detective comics and let Batwoman get her own comic book.

^ how does it feel short when the main story is still the standard 22 pages? I think some of you guys are too used to trade paperbacks and not the monthly serialized format.

because Batwoman is not a brand name and risking a new title on her could be a waste of money when you can just have her carry one of the franchise books (Detective Comics) for a while to get fleshed out better.
