Exclusive: Mark Doyle And Bob Harras On The Future For Batman
Batman's 75th anniversary came during an incredibly eventful year for the Caped Crusader, and not just in terms of celebratory publications and commemorative events.

Lightning in a Bottle: The Resurgence of the Writer/Artist at DC Comics
Anyone who's been paying attention to the DC Comics slate for the past year or two has probably noticed an increasing number of titles written and drawn by the same person. While some of these are by seasoned writer/artists -- Dan Jurgens and Howard Chaykin have been at this for decades -- a lot of them are by longtime artists with very little writing experience flying solo on surprisingly high-pr
