The new Batman and Robin series has been a lot of fun.

Although I admit, with Batman's populartiy at an all-time high after The Dark Knight last year, I found it puzzling as to why they decided to "kill off" Bruce Wayne.
Perhaps to gain more publicity and sell more books. It's not like Bruce has been removed from all media anyway. I'm curious to know if DC actually did sell more Bat books because of Batman's 'demise'.
Apparently most of Batman RIP (issues 676-683) did sell at high rates, though the first part somewhat better than the last two issues. Then Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader (#686) knocked 'em all out of the park.
Well, it certainly got some decent publicity.
