If the preview images for DC Comics' new Robin Rises: Omega one-shot, which hits stores July 16, indicate what it looks like they're indicating, then Damian Wayne's comic-book death will have lasted just a bit less than 17 months.
The writer of the book, Peter J.

Written and performed by Jon Kaplan and Al Ka

For the past two weeks, ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims and David Uzumeri have been defending the much-maligned Batman & Robinmovie, but even they couldn't say anything nice about the atrocious costume designs. But amazingly, as we learned from the original unused costume concepts posted online e
Each week, Chris Sims and David Uzumeri take a look back at one of the most successful and influential comic book movie franchises of all time, in ComicsAlliance's in-depth retrospective on the Batman films.
As is their wont, our friends at GammaSquad have discovered something that we just had to share with you as well: adorable hand-written letters from Damian Wayne to Dick Grayson. The latter will no longer be Batman to the violently precocious young Robin come the DC Comics relaunch in September, when Grayson returns to his solo career as Nightwing
