Batman and Robin Turn Abstract

In an issue full of illusions, twists, and misdirection, Batman and Robin must cling to reality in order to survive. After four murderous psychopaths are released from Le Jardin Noir, the French equivalent to Arkham Asylum, the ensuing chaos is as much of a visual trip as it is a mental one. But who is the ringleader of this insanity and can Batman, Robin and Nightrunner stop him from turning the whole world abstract?

Pardon me while I gush over The Spirit for a moment

I eagerly anticipate the next issues of Green Lantern, Action, Detective and Brightest Day each month as much as the next guy, but I'll take a few paragraphs here to talk about a book that's quietly snuck its way to the top of my read pile each week it's been released.

The inmates take over Arkham Asylum in DETECTIVE #864

You read that headline right, folks. Newly-announced AZRAEL writer David Hine kicks off "Beneath the Mask" in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS. It's Black Mask vs. Jeremiah Arkham for control of the asylum. But what of the enigmatic Three Beauries, and how does Batman fit in? Everything teased in BATTLE FOR THE COWL: ARKHAM ASYLUM and ARKHAM REBORN comes to a head here, but the answers may drive you mad...

DETECTIVE COMICS #864 hits 4/28.

Crash into the final issue of ARKHAM REBORN

I hate to sound like too much of a broken record, but one of the perks of wandering around the DCU editorial floor is you get to slyly scan over all the cool art and sketches the editors have on their desks and in their offices. It's always a treat to see what stuff is coming in from our various and hugely talented creators. Case in point: If you haven't been reading writer David Hine and artist Jeremy Haun's ARKHAM REBORN, you're truly missing out on the reimagining of a key component of the Bat-mythos. Still not sold?
