Solicitation titillation.


BATMAN AND ROBIN #1

Eh. . .I dunno guys. . .

Written by Grant Morrison: Art and Cover by Frank Quitely.

Hm, not bad, I liked both of 'em on All-Star Superman, but a Batman book? I'm not sure about that. I like the characters of course(not being an idiot), but what's the draw for a guy like me?

"Batman Reborn" begins here! With the reunited team of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely (ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, WE3,New X-Men), this first issue kicks off a 3-part story arc that can't be missed!

They did WE3 too? I've heard that book is really good, if occasionally heart-rending. Go on.

The new Dynamic Duo hit the streets with a bang in their new flying Batmobile as they face off against an assemblage of villains called the Circus of Strange.

I'm sorry, what was that?

Flying batmobile?

. . .their new flying Batmobile. . .

Great googly moogly.

They also tackle their first mission investigating a child who's been abducted by the mysterious Domino Killer.

Yeah, that's really great but the batmobile actually flies right? This isn't some cop-out like it has a jet engine in the back or something. . .'cause I saw that in the '60s show and the '89 movie. . .

But will everything go smoothly?

Sir, in a flying batmobile everything goes amazingly.

And who exactly are the new Batman and Robin?

Well it's so obvious: Christian Bale and Anton Yelchin. I hardly need to get Hercule Poirot on speed-dial for that 'mystery'. Sheesh, these guys. . .

The newest era of The Dark Knight begins here!

Flying batmobile. Well played Morrison, well played indeed. You know my weaknesses only too well. Consider my money spent.

I love you man but seriously.... that's the ONLY reason you're checking this out? I mean c'mon, as much as I hate what Morrison has done with the Batman franchise, I had to check it out to see the full scope of his "vision" (I quote the word vision simply because it tends to imply a plan and not an "ooh a bunny!" sort of mentality.

Well, that and seeing Dick Grayson as Batman. I just thought I'd latch onto the one thing that could really clinch getting my butt through the door, given my inexperience with Batman post. . .damn, when was the last time I read a Batman book that wasn't a one-shot or an Elseworlds? Knightfall? KnightQuest? Anyway, I was being facetious more than anything else. You should know by now to take what I say with a grain of salt. ~.^
