    Ah cool i never knew what the vol.2 story was going to be. So this essantually is "Robin: Year One" in Miller universe. :) Cool stuff. :) Shame we probably will never see Miller's Jason Todd whom i always found intriquing.

    Yeah, All-Star Batman & Robin essentially is Miller's "Robin: Year One" in Miller's Earth-31 Dark Knight Universe.
    “Anything I come up with about any of these characters is DKU,” Miller said. “DC winds up adopting just about all of it, anyway.."
    In his Dark Knight work, Miller has given readers a glimpse into the twilight years of Batman’s career. In Batman: Year One, he’s shared the beginning of the Batman saga. So where does All-Star Batman fall in his Batman time-table?
    “Year Three. Bats is feeling his oats—very young, maybe acting a little crazy, but he knows exactly what he's doing. He's just a bit sloppier about doing it than he's going to eventually get.”

    It's a relief that Frank Miller won't be writing the story for this.

    Neal Adams artwork on it looks as great as it did back in the 70's.

    Your relief is really empty.
    Frank Miller has written all of the characters dialogue in the story for this.

    It looks even better to me. Neal Adams said, "I have never been able to bring my "A" game to Batman, to my satisfaction. Oh, a little here and there, but all out? Never, never. On this project? Yep. This is the Batman I believe in. So what do I, and of course the incredible Frank Miller bring to Batman after all that's gone before? Well it better be something that's pretty darn hot, Jocko, right?"

    Small update on Batman Odyssey
    So i guess each "Volume" is a 6 issue story arc and Neal wanted to ship the issues once he's done with volume 3. That'd be quite cool. :)

    It's awesome that Batman: Odyssey been expanded with Batman: The Underworld and that Neal Adams is finished drawing the six issue Batman: Odyssey series and it's obviously in the process of being inked, each issue by a different inker, including Scott Williams and Kevin Nowlan. Neal's site also says, "Rumor is it is in the process of being scheduled for a June 2010 release. I will keep you updated on this as well."

    Can't wait to see illustrations for other villains that Neal Adams never illustrated in the 1970's Batman comics. :D

    interesting read. I'm thinking about buying it because it has my two of my favorite Batman writers: Neal Adams and Frank Miller. It's interesting how he talks about Batman putting people in Jail and then put them in Arkham Asylum all of a sudden

    Kiel Phegley reports that "While early on in the process, Adams had spoken of having Frank Miller doing dialogue for the story, the artist will end up writing "Odyssey" in its final form from start to finish."
    http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=25519

    So Frank Miller isn't dialoguing Neal Adams' series after all. It makes sense for Neal Adams to dialogue it since it's his story, and I know that Frank Miller is busy with his own projects, and Frank Miller has encouraged artists to write their own material for their own projects. Frank Miller said in Amazing Heroes #102 of David Mazzucchelli and Bill Sienkiewicz, "Both of these people should write their own material because both of them have particular visions that should be pursued purely, without anyone else writing the script."

    It's interesting trivia that comic book pencillers are also kind of co-writers although they are credited as only penciller, the only penciller that I know that had been credited as co-writer was John Byrne on his X-Men (but he was credited as co-plotter) and I think that I remember Jim Lee having co-plotter credit on some of his 90's work on X-Men with Chris Claremont and later with Scott Lobdell. I didn't know Adams was the main uncredited writer for the late 60's pre-cancellation X-Men comics and that Roy Thomas only wrote dialogue.

    I think that's probably the incident that causes him to Armour up his Batsuit or it's one of those covers that has nothing to do with the story. Cool cover, nonetheless.

    I wonder if this will be flavored noir, sci fi, or supernatural?

    Art's pretty, not crazy about the cover content. Overkill, seems like.
