So, OK, Paul Dini's writing it and Bat-Mite returns to host a series of Batman's most bizarre adventure. You're already excited, right?

Well, check out this image of the Mad Magazine-inspired Batboy and Rubin.

DCU in 2011: El Gaucho and the Batman of Africa join BATMAN, INCORPORATED.

A new status quo. Those words are thrown around, a lot, in the comic book industry. But that’s exactly what New York Times bestselling writer Grant Morrison and team have created with BATMAN, INC.

Bruce Wayne has extended Batman’s mission—and brand—globally.

So far, we’ve met England’s Knight & Squire, Mr. Unknown (the Batman of Japan) and El Gaucho from Argentina's Batman. Judging from this advance look at Yanick Paquette’s gorgeous art from an upcoming issue of BATMAN, INCORPORATED, the international action and intrigue are only ramping up in the coming months.

AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT ALL-STAR SUPERMAN

It is based on a book that is an Eisner Award winner and a New York Times bestseller. It’s a personal story with an epic scope. It’s iconic and classic, yet modern and daring. Yes, we’re talking about ALL-STAR SUPERMAN.

It’s no hyperbole to say that Warner Home Video’s upcoming animated ALL-STAR SUPERMAN film is eagerly anticipated and the good folks at WHV have been kind enough to send THE SOURCE an exclusive still. . .

DC Comics and Vertigo take home seven of IGN's Best of 2010 Awards

Best New Series: Vertigo's AMERICAN VAMPIRE

A few blind items

How do I know that it's almost 5 o'clock on Friday? The big tip off is that fellow SOURCE blogger and all around good guy Austin Trunick already has his NFL game day face on. On Friday. For Sunday's games. Let's just say, Mr. Trunick takes his football very seriously.

So we're gonna have to wrap things up here this week on THE SOURCE before Austin actually puts on shoulder pads or something.

Let's end our Friday with three blind items...

* Which superhero team is losing their headquarters?

A few variants for Friday

Well, more like a slew. A slew of goodness.

Williams III’s takes on BATMAN INCORPORATED #2 and #3, a lovely Felipe Massafera variant for GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD WARRIORS #5 and Sami Basri’s variant for SUPERMAN #706. Enjoy!

Grant Morrison and David Finch team up to bring Bruce Wayne back in style

In addition to being a comic fan, I’m also a sports and music nerd. And like any fan, my imagination tends to wander. What if singer X played with guitarist Z? What if QB so-and-so had WR what’s-his-name to throw to? Would they have made one great, epic album? Would they have won the Super Bowl? The same kind of logic applies to comics. What if this writer worked with that artist on character X for an issue?

A sneak peek at BATMAN in February

If that stack comics on my desk (which I’ve kindly reposted above) from yesterday wasn’t clue enough, let me be frank: it’s an exciting time for Batman, and for Batman fans, like me. November lit the fuse and things are not slowing down. Come February, we’ve got the launch of J.H. Williams III and co.’s BATWOMAN ongoing, featuring co-writer W. Haden Blackman.
