The long awaited silent issue has a four page preview up at Newsarama



Batman-Robin-18-3

Given the nature of the pictures that Bruce found Damian drawing when the title was relaunched (and which Dick either somehow completely failed to notice, or just weren't happening until Damian became Bruce's Robin) this is a particularly poignant page IMHO.

I assume that those are reading/viewing list recommendations from Clark (not sure we ever saw he and Damian meet). I can make out;

On the Waterfront
Rebel Without a Cause
My Left Foot
Cool hand Luke
To Kill a Mockingbird
Lawrence of Arabia
The Sand Pebbles

but I can't make out the rest.

The way DC seems to be milking this all over their titles doesn't sit right with me. But these pages...cue the waterworks.

Did we ever see Damien sketching? Or, hell, even reading for pleasure? I think this would be a lot more emotionally effecting if it didn't feel so exploitative. That's not a knock on Tomasi, by the way; this entire parade just feels like one more shock tactic in a year that's been full of them. Only this time, they offed another kid.

It's like DC has a complex or something.

I don't know; I DO like the books Clark recommended for Damian; it's very...Clark, who's a writer, and I could see him especially choosing, say, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD which is a very mainstream American book as one of the books for Damian to read. Clark's an extraordinary man-alien with a very wholesome conventional upbringing, and Damian is a young "normal" boy who had anything BUT a conventional upbringing.


I do have a question though: I didn't get all the Bat-books in which Damian appeared; did Damian ever actually meet Superman/Clark in an actual comic? I know he met Supergirl, but offhand I don't remember Damian/Superman interacting---and considering his initial superiority complex/surliness, I would be interested in reading that.

I can't think of another C.K. in Bruce's life, at least, that it would likely to be. And even in the new 52, it's been shown in Justice League and Action (and the upcoming Superman/Batman book) that they are a team who often works together outside the JLA. I would have loved to see them together---Damian with his initial contempt for most people, and Superman, who though he is in many ways superior to most people, with his love and identification with ordinary people.

I remember To Kill A Mockingbird being stated as Clark's absolute favorite book in a few instances from the pre-Flashpoint era.

Why would they need to have a chummy meeting at all? Clark's being nice to Damian because he's the kinda guy who'd get excited that his best friend has a kid and would want to be the helpful uncle.

True. I just wish it HAD been written---it'd be like Atticus Finch from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD meeting a young Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name.

Curious how they're going to show the Batfamily mourning when they can't really show them going after Talia and Leviathan outside of Batman Inc. I'm sure what we get will be okay, but it'll still be kinda weird given that the Bat people usually grieve by punching those responsible for their grief in the face.

You know, it didn't even occur to me until now, but how does the Gotham public view Damian? Are there gossip sites trying to find out who Bruce Wayne's baby mama is? And what's gonna be the cover story for his death?

Yeah, how is the public going to react to TWO sons dying in violent circumstances? That's gonna be a little sketchy.

This was one of the few things Morrison wisely handwaved during Batman and Robin, although he still had the rather ridiculous scene of Damian, a ten year old, telling the WE board what's what, as if they'd take him remotely seriously and not question 'where did Bruce Wayne's ten year old kid come from?'

Yeah sorry, comic deaths just don't do anything for me anymore other than annoy or piss me off. After BAtman's death/not death a few years ago not sure I will ever feel sad about a Bat character dying
