As promised, we’ve got an all-star lineup of posts, art and comments rolling out this week. All celebrating the 700th issue of BATMAN. First up, we have a look at an interior page from superstar artist Andy Kubert’s contribution to Grant’s BATMAN #700 story, along with comments from the venerable Mr. Kubert himself. Take it away, Andy!
This week, DC’s ongoing BATMAN title hits a major and rare milestone: 700 issues.
We’ve got a simple good news/bad news situation for you all this morning.
Bad news: Artist Cameron Stewart won’t be handling the art chores on the fourth issue of BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE. We’ll have more Cameron news, however, in the coming months, so — as usual — keep it locked here at The Source. So, wait. That’s not bad news at all.
And we’ve got something extra for you.
It’s not longer a question of IF Bruce Wayne is alive, but WHEN. And in this second issue, written by Batman virtuoso Grant Morrison with stunning artwork from Frazer Irving, we see Bruce timeslip into another era of Gotham, with plenty of surprises to keep our amnesiac Dark Knight busy.

BATMAN: THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #2 hits 5/26.
Well, that was a doozy of an issue, wasn’t it? The final page of BATMAN AND ROBIN #12 not only capped off an exciting run of issues by writer Grant Morrison and artist Andy Clarke, but also marked the return of a long-missed and unexpected character. Did you have any inkling it was…oh, wait. You haven’t read the issue yet? Yeesh. Well, hop to it, then!
