The trick is you have to read it when you are 13 years old and it will be the most mind-blowing comics ever!

I always thought Az-bats was drawn to look like an early 90s Spider-Man villain.

Didn't realize the new Mister Miracle by Jack Kirby trade came out in September.

Eh... I, uh, don't know what to think right now. Hopefully it's a rebirth for him I guess?

What books can you see Bendis writing? What books would you want him to write? His Daredevil run was fantastic but his Avengers runs were hit and miss. I think the safe answer would be Batman and/or Nightwing. Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps could be an interesting choice for him. It would definitely boost sales, I know it's not doing well right now. I could see DC giving him Justice League.

I don't see him on JL considering Priest is on the book now (unless Priest is just temporary).

Forgot about Priest being on JL. I'm a trade waiter these days.

And nothing of value was lost.

In all seriousness, there was a lot of good that went with the bad with Bendis. But I'm not going to miss him. Haven't even kept up with his owner created works.

Bendis coming to DC makes me both excited and nervous. On one hand, when he’s great he’s GREAT. But he has a tendency to grab onto smaller characters and try to force them into every single corner of the universe.

I’d love to see him on a title like NIGHTWING, which I think can let him really flex his muscles. Or, tying back to the early days of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN...maybe a SUPER SONS run?

I'm hopeful Bendis takes over Batman from King.

I'm hoping they don't kick Priest off for Bendis (since Bendis sells more). I'm coming back to JL due to Priest, but I'm not interested in a Bendis penned run.

I started reading "The Button" crossover and I can't get over the Gotham and Metropolis hockey teams being in the Western conference. It's irritating me a lot more than it should.

How cute, Marvel reminding us that they made a big deal about Northstar's wedding. And then never did anything with him again...

"of the century" Welp, Marvel is starting that hype machine. Hopefully it doesn't end in a disappointment.

Finished reading Batman & Robin Eternal a few days ago. I haven't read Batman Eternal so I have no idea how/why Bruce is in the situation he is.
I really liked both the art and story, and I find Cassandra to be a pretty cool character.

The downside to this is though that now I wanna start reading titles/story arcs containing any of the other Batfamily characters, and that means spending time and money which I do not have lol.

I am a pretty big fan of Batman but I like the Bat family even more. I love Nightwing and Batgirl even though their comics can be a bit b-league. When Nightwing is written well he can be pretty epic. But too often he is written as a bat-lite character. I would recommend the elseworlds title that is ongoing right now called Nightwing: the New Order. I'm loving that. Also I'd recommend the Red Hood and the Outlaws and Detective Comics Rebirth titles which have been consistently stellar and among my top 5 Rebirth titles. I never liked Jason Todd but RHatO Rebirth has really given him an awesome opportunity to shine and be a great character.

I'll look into it

I have read some of the N52 Batgirl though, which I really liked.

By the way, where did Damian get a giant red tame bat?

Lol. The Bat-dragon is named Goliath and if memory serves, Damien came into contact with him as a young kid when he was doing a rite of passage for the League of assassins. Goliath was just a baby and Damien decided that he was as adorable and took him and raised him.
