Well, Arthur’s been saying he doesn’t want to be king…
Well, that wasn’t what we expected.
The cover of this week’s BATMAN #38 promises to reveal “the origin of Bruce Wayne,” which we had to admit, had us scratching our heads. We know the origin of Batman, but Bruce Wayne? Were we going to see his birth? We’re not sure that particular story is one that needs to be told.
Tim Drake, perhaps better known as Red Robin around the streets of Gotham, has been missing in action for a while after seemingly meeting his demise over a year ago in the pages of Detective Comics.

But these are no mere gangsters of the sunglasses-and-shirtcuffs variety. These are two of the Dark Knight’s deadliest foes—the Joker and the Riddler.
