COMIC BOOK NEWS FOR AUGUST 30: BATMEN AND SCIFI GRAPHIC NOVELS

by Dawn, August 30, 2010

Bruce Wayne AND Dick Grayson Are BATMAN This Fall

Source: newsarama.com

We already knew Bruce Wayne was coming back this fall, and let’s face it, Dick Grayson has been doing a pretty good job as Batman. So what to do, DC? This morning the NY Post has confirmed what fans and observers have guessed all along. There will be 2 Batmans … uh, Batmen in November.

Beginning that month, Detective Comics, Batman and Batman and Robin will feature Dick Grayson as Batman (with the black Bat-symbol on his chest) with Damian Wayne as Robin, while Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette’s Batman Inc. and David Finch’s Batman: The Dark Knight will both feature Bruce Wayne (with the yellow chest symbol) in their pages.

Fantastic scifi graphic novels (that will get you hooked for life)

Comic books can be a difficult to get into, what with their years of serial storytelling and convoluted continuity. Luckily, there are plenty of one-and-done graphic novels out there. Here are some of the best four-color gateway drugs.

In picking these books, I tried to avoid picking from the über-obvious (Watchmen) and those books about familiar superheroes (Dark Knight Returns). We love ourselves some capes here at io9, but the medium goes beyond up, up, and away. Also, I wanted to keep the selection affordable, self-contained, and accessible — you should be able to find all of these books at a fair price online. And with these stand-alone stories, all you need is one hit.

Huh, Interesting move for DC comics, having both Bruce and Dick as Batman. As a Bruce and a Dick fan, I was always of the opinion that Bruce Wayne was Batman, Dick Grayson was Nightwing – and neither Bruce or Dick wanted Dick to take the Bat legacy. We’ll see how this plays out.

Are you a Batman fan? What do you think of this move?
