Batman & Robin #13 cover has been released

Spoilers behind the cut. DCUBlog has the cover of the action after last issue's big reveal.





The match up we knew would happen.

Anyone getting that "Benjamin Linus" vibe from Mr. J on this image?

As in "you think you have him trapped, but he's exactly where he wants to be and he has you exactly where he wants you."

suggested tags:
title: Batman and Robin

character: Nightwing/Dick Grayson (sorry, no, love the guy but still not Batman)

character: The Joker

...There's a 13? I thought it was a "mini" ending at 12. Whoo boy, shows how much I was paying attention.

DC extended it to 16 because Morrison wanted more room. He's also doing another "season" of 12+ issues.

And here I was hoping the Joker's snazzy Oberon look would mean that he'd finally "evolved" to his new/old self and we'd be done with the horrible Bowie Joker. The Joker is not a permanently grinning David Bowie. He just isn't, damn it.

Also, I thought he could no longer speak legibly, but only Dr. Hurt and Batman could understand him. How did he get to speak as Oberon, then?

Damien really just doesn't get this Robin thing. I mean, this is all wrong. He's supposed to be the one in bondage, not the Joker. No wonder Dick's trying to stop him.

As in "you think you have him trapped, but he's exactly where he wants to be and he has you exactly where he wants you."

Getting a Robin to kill someone, even him, would be perfect for a Joker who feels that "his" Batman is gone.

Little does Damien know about the novelty snakes the Joker hid inside his skull. "Best prank EVer," thinks the Joker.

Damian is the only Robin who's similar to Jason its cute hes trying to hurt the Joker.
I guess Im the only one who like Morrison's take on the Joker. It made sense I'll give him that.

For Christ sake, just let the little shit kill him. One whack for Jason, one whack for Babs, a couple of whacks for everyone else. Done. Give Bruce something to brood about when he gets back.

You know, as iconic as he is, I've gotten a little bored with the Joker over the years. We're to the point where it's running over the same old ground, again and again.

How fabulous is that? The bright green, the laughter, Joker bent over laughing -- such a sado-masochist!

If Jason saw this, he'd be like: "Damian. Love the attitude. The crowbar beat-down? Been there, done that. But let's do it again for funtimes."

But seriously, Damian quit stealing Jason's job. He's the family badass anti-hero, you're the obnoxious brat. Know your role. :-P

To be honest, I'd much rather see an Aparo cover version of this (And I know the man is long deceased) than any cover Quitely has done. I like a lot of his internal work, but his cover work tends to just look... blah.

Damien's left hand looks more like a fist rather then being wrapped around the other hand to get a decent swing going.

I know his hands are tied up -

But I am so skeeved by where they are in regards to Damien's crotch.

I'd much prefer a cover with Dick just kind of casually standing there, implying that his objection never goes beyond an unenthusiastic (Gene Wilder-esque) 'Stop. Don't. Come back.'
