This is the moment we’ve been waiting for; the final issue of Batman RIP.  Put on your speculation hats and start guessing just what this sneak peek means.  I’m not going to comment on the issue until I read the whole thing.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to pick it up tomorrow morning.

    Grant Morrison’s Batman was pretty good but I’m looking forward to his forthcoming Vertigo titles.

    Morrison’s Batman has been great so far! I am so ready for this issue. Sad to see him go(for however long).

    Thank god the end is here. No matter WHAT way things turn out, at least this potential-cluster$*&! is concluding. Let’s see if the “reveal” can make all of the build-up somehow worth all the time and trouble… otherwise, just drop the “potential” from my earlier adjective.

    A very lackluster conclusion to a very confusing story.
