In a few short days, the final chapter of BATTLE FOR THE COWL hits the stands and the entire world will learn the identity of the new Batman. It’s a journey long in the making and it’s hard to believe all the hard work from all of our creators is finally paying off on the printed page. But we’re not wasting any time resting on our butts. Nope, we’re diving straight into the next exciting phase of the Dark Knight’s life, an era which reflects the new world order for Gotham City and its favorite protector--BATMAN REBORN.
Everyone loves a good mystery. There are plenty happening in the Batman universe these days, too. Who will be Batman once BATTLE FOR THE COWL concludes? We're not telling, obviously. Another mystery? Who's this Red Robin guy that's getting his own ongoing in June? Again, we're not telling. But we can fan the flames a bit. Here are a few pages from the second issue, in pencil form, from artist Ramon Bachs, who's teaming with writer Chris Yost. Oh, and the cover to RED ROBIN #3, hitting in August. Take a guess.

Who is Red Robin, exactly? We're not going to just up and spoil that here, gentle reader. But we will show you some Ramon Bachs interiors from the first issue of the new ongoing series, launching in June, written by Chris Yost. Plus a nift Francis Manapul cover. All you need to know -- for now -- is that this Red Robin knows a thing or two about taking the fight to the streets. Don't take my word for it, though. RED ROBIN #1 hits 6/10. [gallery link="file"]
