    Wonder if that means she is going to be revealed as his daughter.

    But I think he got the marks in Year One.

    Though I wonder how they'll reconcile his stance that the costumed freaks stole Gotham City from hard earners like him with the Court of Owls running Gotham since it was founded.

    I wouldn't be surprised given her reaction in the panel.

    I never read "When in Rome" so I'm pretty sure Catwoman scarred him in Year One or Long Halloween.

    It happens near the end of Year One, as I recall.

    Yep. I got the details wrong. "When In Rome" was just the follow up to the aftermath of that.

    Now I'm trying to figure out how anything from Year One and the Loeb/Sale collaborations can work with Zero Year. And I'm coming up totally empty. :)

    They can't really. Zero Year has kind of retconned them despite the fact that wasn't supposed to be originally the intention.

    New July DC Solicitations are out.

    http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=52321

    1) Dick does indeed go work for Spyral (from Batman Inc) in Grayson as some have suspected from the cover that was shown awhile back.

    2) The advanced Future's End solicitations for September have no creator credit.

    Most interesting however is the SM/WW and WW ones are actually connected storywise for once as are the solicitations for SM/WW 10 and SM/WW emphasizing Diana as War. Perhaps a clue of who is going to be the next WW writer?

    Oh I hope editorial has changed their mind about the Finches and instead given the book to Solue. That would keep me still reading.

    I don't even like Finche's art.

    Maybe his movie did really well?

    I thought it was a bit of a yawn.

    This isn't because of the movie, DiDio has been planning this for a long time now.

    Is it Didio or Tomasi who want him back?

    My guess has always been DiDio from reading into various comments and previous interviews about the subject. Tomasai I'm sure is just going along with it. Didio hasn't always been on board with Grant's work in the past.

    I stopped reading Batman after Darkseid killed him.

    Hopefully they dump Snyder's version. Is it really that hard to write the guy as a psychotic clown? Why the need to add these extra unnecessary layers to him?

    Snyder's version is awesome and obviously seems to have the approval of DiDio and others since they've been spotted wearing the Faceless mask at cons. I understand this version isn't for everyone but it's been pretty interesting. I like the fact that he's been used sparingly. I do suspect though that they will revert to a more traditional Joker once Snyder and Capullo are finished.

    I just feel it's a flavor of the week. Much like the Morrison take on the Joker.
