Considering that for much of Damien's time he was written by Morrison, I could see him not coming back our of respect to Morrison as he's a well loved writer.
Like the respect given to Watchmen?

Yeah, as soon as DC needs to do a big event for Bats, Damien will be back

Yeah, I doubt they'll have much "respect" for him once he's gone. If they think it can be profitable to them they'll bring him back. Look for Superboy to punch reality in the face again.

It depends on how they handle the situation. If DC has a new Robin waiting in the wings then yes he might stay dead.
Rather than get somebody new, Tim or Steph should return to the role.

Tim's a superhero now in his own right. Why would he regress back into a sidekick?

Damiens blood was infused with Lazarus Pit juice, he just needs a little bit to recover, he will be fine.
I am looking forward to a new and female Robin making an appearance. Time to break up the all boys club there and would enjoy the Batgirl, Batwoman, Robin teamup as well.

Quick thought on Batman Inc #8 -- I cheered, I laughed, I feared, I cried.



Good job, Grant Morrison.

You are seriously overestimating the importance of Batman Inc if you think it's comparable to Watchmen.

I just finished Batman Incorporated #8. I know some of you dislike Burnham's art work but I thought he did an incredible job with this issue. As far as the issue its self...wow. I think Allyn above summed up my feelings. Bruce is going to be pissed off for a while...and I'm actually looking forward to what Tomasai is going to be doing in "Batman and Robin" over the next little while.

So y'know that new thing in the back of DC Comics where the little two page newsshow blurbs on their comics? It spoils the ending of Bat Inc #8. So anybody reading that in any DC Comic this week will be spoiled on the ending... if they haven't already been...

Who does the art on that, anyway? I think I first saw it in "Batman" and assumed it was Greg Capullo.

Which is a pretty damn lame thing to do. The "news segment" thing is lame too. Am I really "paying" for this? Are valuable pages for more of the comic itself being used up for this nonsense?

The Channel 52 stuff is lame.

I think Freddie Williams who did the new Captain Atom. The noses and the faces are in his style.

Oh, lord no. I'm simply saying that if they don't have respect for the Watchmen--a well loved COMPLETE story, why would they have respect for Morrison's wishes?

If bringing someone back from the dead will get them more dollars in the coffers, DC is going to do just that.
