The writer will be leaving both Action Comics and Batman Incorporated within the next year, and outside of two already-in-progress shorter works for DC Comics, he has no other superhero work planned to replace those books.Morrison dropped his bombshell in the middle of a c
In the aftermath of the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado last Friday, in which 12 people were killed and dozens injured during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, DC Comics has delayed release of Batman, Incorporated #3. In a letter sent to comic book retailers on Monday, the publisher indicated the decision was made due to "content that may be perceived as insensitive in light of recent events."

This week on ComicsAlliance, Chris Sims, Matt Wilson and Andy Khouri sit down for the second half of their discussion of DiDio's list, featuring Superman: Earth One, Batman R.I.P., and the New
In this week's Batman #10, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion have finally revealed the mastermind behind Batman's conflict with the Court of Owls -- and to say that it's a surprise is underselling things quite a bit. But while this is certainly a
Well, we're back. (I realize I never got to the Leviathan Strikes oneshot, and I swear on the graves of Thomas and Martha Wayne I'll get to it soon enough.)
But it's a new #1 issue, in a New 52, and there are new readers, so let's sit back and absorb the 22 (!) pages of the first issue of Batman Incorporated volume two, by Grant Morrison, Chris Burnham and Nathan Fairbairn, who continue to prove themselves insanely well-matched for Morrison's scripts.

"Gayness is built into Batman. ... Batman is very, very gay. There's just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he's intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay
On sale now, the May 2012 issue of Playboy features a new illustration by Frank Quitely depicting frequent collaborator Grant Morrison, as well as an interview with Morrison that includes characteristically provocative remarks from the frequent Batman writer, including his belief that the Batman concept is "utterly gay," that there is "nothing noble" about Magneto, and an update on his long in-progress Wonder Woman story. The excellent Quitely illustration includes many character
