As the holidays arrive and the year comes to a close, we thought we’d take a look back at 2013 and commemorate some of the moments that really stood out in the world of DC Entertainment in a two-week DCComics.com series we’re calling “Ten Moments that Mattered.” Some of these moments were happy. Some were sad. They played out in the pages of our comics, on the big and small screen and in the halls of our office. However, all of them made a profound difference in the world of DC Comics and in the hearts and minds of our fans.
Batman and Superman are known for large-scale adventure, but those adventures are still often limited to what can fit in a single 20-page comic book. However, once a year, we give the talent behind Batman, Superman and many of our other popular super heroes a chance to dream big and come up with an extra-sized story that takes our characters to places you might not see in their ongoing monthly title. Sometimes you’ll see them tangling with a favorite villain, or exploring a thread from their currently storyline.
This summer, Grant Morrison’s epic series BATMAN, INCORPORATED will reach its explosive finale.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read BATMAN, INCORPORATED #8 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (MAJOR spoilers ahead!)
From the creative team of writer Grant Morrison and artist Chris Burnham, BATMAN, INCORPORATED #8 serves as the pinnacle of everything Morrison has been planning since the launch of this series – and the conclusion of Damian’s story.
Following the tragic death of Damian Wayne in BATMAN, INCORPORATED #8 by Grant Morrison and artist Chris Burnham, BUZZFEED unveiled an exclusive gallery of Bat-Family covers featuring reaction to the news.
Each cover depicts a character affected by the news of Damian’s death and, in most cases, is a tribute to their personal relationship with Robin.
Please ignore the raggedness and puffy eyes. It’s... it’s been a rough 24 hours following the events of yesterday’s BATMAN INCORPORATED #8. For those of you who missed it, we suggest you check it out immediately. We’ll wait right here.
Back? Cool. Here are some tissues and ice cream, and yes, that is REM’s “Everybody Hurts” playing in the background.
"Little did I suspect when I accepted the BATMAN writing assignment back in 2006 that I’d wind up spending the next six years writing the longest continued comic story I’ve ever attempted. I thought I’d said most of what I had to say about the character with Arkham Asylum, Gothic, and Batman’s appearances in JLA. Clearly, I was wrong.
