I found they are much bigger events than I’m used to. I knew going into them that they would be learning experiences, and boy, were they!

COMICS PORTAL: A New Batman Coming to Earth 2

Editor’s Note: Major Spoilers is happy to welcome Wayne Hall to the writing staff. Every Monday, Comics Portal presents Wayne’s thoughts on a comic event from the week before. Without further ado, Comics Portal! It’s important to know that I’m a big Batman fan. I’ve been following the Dark Knight since the first comic I ever read, which had Batman in England flying around a castle! Even as a kid, I remember thinking, “Wow! I have to read more of this!” Thus a lifelong passion was born!
