We are now two months from the beginning of the "One Year Later" age of DC Comics, when all the DC series - even Legion - will skip a year. Readers will arrive in these comics to find many changes to the status quo, changes that will only be explained within the pages of a weekly comic called "52."

Much about this doesn't thrill me. "52" sounds exciting, but it will be expensive. Readers will be lost for months till we get the backstory. And there have been many odd rumors about the changes. None odder than those surrounding Batman.

No word yet as to whether Robinson is writing more than the first six-issue arc in Detective and Batman, or who else might be writing the Batbooks, or when a rumored "Batman Condfidential" comic to replace Gotham Knights will debut. But at the least, things are looking up. For six issues, we will get Robinson doing the Bat, and will get Robinson's more likeable, more human Bats (I hope).

And if you want to see Tomasi's take on Batman, I advise you to visit www.newsarama.com and read the interview. It's what I was hoping for from a Bat-editor.
