Why stop at two, huh? On Friday, we slammed the week shut with the debut of the cover to BATMAN: RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE #2, but there are a few more jaw-droppingly gorgeous "Batmen" waiting for some blog time, so why hold off on the Andy Kubert goodness? So, before you head home, check out the amazing covers to #3 and #4. Enjoy.
Did the RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE covers from Friday sate your hunger for Batman news? We didn't think so. Luckily, BATMAN AND ROBIN double-ships this month, and the creative team supreme of Grant Morrison and artist Cameron Stewart continue the "Blackest Knight" storyline with #8.

Writer/artist Tony Daniel continues to pit Batman against the Black Mask in his latest BATMAN issue. While trapped in the crime lord's headquarters, The Dark Knight must find a way to escape before all of Gotham City falls prey to the Mask's lethal toxins. Guest-starring Catwoman, Penguin, Robin and the Reaper, BATMAN #696 hits 2/17. [gallery link="file"]
So, new comic book day is almost over. Did you get a chance to swing by the shop? If not, you really should. It's a busy week for the DCU, with a ton of books shipping, and lots of stuff happening in said book. One title featuring some major shakeups is BATMAN AND ROBIN #7, which kicks off an arc that teams artist Cameron Stewart with regular writer Grant Morrison.
Yesterday, we showed off a page from BATMAN AND ROBIN #7 -- and it was a doozy. But why stop there? We've got the first five pages from the issue here, courtesy of the superstar team of writer Grant Morrison and artist Cameron Stewart. BATMAN AND ROBIN #7 hits tomorrow. Swing back later tomorrow for a closer look at the issue. [gallery link="file"]
