So big comic book events are a fact of life at the mometn for several reasons and it was inevitable that DC would be announcing their next big comic book event. However, this is something I found myself intrigued by for a couple of reasons which I will expand upon beneath the cut. The announcement can be found here.

So why am I excited/intrigued?
-First, this is by Scott Snyder and he has really good track record at the moment. In addition this feels like a story he has been slowly building up for a long time now so it will be really interesting to see what he will accomplish.
-Second, it seems to be focused on Batman. Now here's a funny thing. As much as I see complaining about the prominence of Batman, there hasn't been a DC Universe that has actually focused on him with Joker's Last Laugh being the closest one and even that not really. Furthermore everytime they have done those huge universe crossovers celebrating DC's legacy, it has almost always been about Superman being the origin of everything while ignoring Batman's heavy role in things. So in a way it is great for them to finally give the Dark Knight his moment in a story like this and with such a great creative team.

Any other feelings here on the announcement?

The article says that DC has stayed away from line-wide publishing events, but almost every book they were publishing during Future's End had a tie-in. Not counting that, because they took place in the future, and some are even no longer relevant is semantics.

There was Forever Evil, but I believe that was more contained.
