10 bucks says this event ends with Alfred donning and cape and cowl...

'DC is proud to present the newest member of the Bat-family. for years he's aided Batman and his allies, now is the time for him to stand along side them... no longer will he just be the butler, he is now the BAT-LER'

@Mucklefluga: No its Bruce I found a longer preview on the batman facebook page. Still just as much of a cliff hanger. But as the article says last page on buzzfeed.

I was a huge marvel fanboy and never like DC comics. This guy changed all that. Snyder is absolutely brilliant and this series is the best thing going for either company. HOOKED!

It's only three pages but eh. I hope Snyder doesn't turn this into a 12 issue story, he's too plodding; although I guess it works with a suspense story like this.

It's going to be amazing! Batman and Swamp Thing are 2 of my favorite books because everything Snyder touches turns to gold. I like how the car battery just says "Die" on it haha

I'm sure this issue will get 5 stars from certain reviewers. Every other Snyder Bat-issue seems to get that as its automatic rating.

I'm worried about this event after the court of owls storyline. Will it be entertaining? No doubt. What worries me is more retcons and introductions of villains as a tool to move the story alongt, rather than being written semi-realistically.

I'm one of those guys who feel the same way,but I just have a feeling that this issue will actually deserve it.
