Next week marks the beginning of the beginning for Bruce Wayne. The presumably time displaced Dark Knight has been located at last and writer Grant Morrison along with an issue-specific team of artistic talent including Frazer Irving, Lee Garbett, Yanick Paquette, Cameron Stewart and Ryan Sook are poised to bring him home over the course of six Andy Kubert-covered issues.

Over at The Source, DC has released a first look at "Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne" #1's full interior by Chris Sprouse. It's been a long time coming too, with teasers, sketches, and other promo trickling online since December of 2009.

The return kicks off May 12, which will likely produce as many questions as it answers. How will Bruce Wayne travel through time? Is he immortal now? Will he take back his mantle from Dick Grayson when he gets to the present day? Where did prehistoric Bruce find a bat big enough to wear?

See what I mean?
