OH SNAP!  One of the interviews I had HOPED would show up on Comic Vine! 
 
Okay, so the beginning pages of Batman & Robin #13 weren't just some crazy thing.  Dick Grayson is ACTUALLY GETTING SHOT IN THE HEAD! 
 
Damn, this is one smart Scotsman! 
 
I will say, though, that I don't know what I think exactly about Yanick Paquette on Batman, Inc.  So far, the Morrison stories for Batman have lent themselves to far more interesting forms of artwork.  It's why guys like Quietly and Daniel and Tan have worked so well.  Paquette's work has always been a bit clean in comparison.  Hopefully, it works out well. 
 
I don't know.  Maybe I just wasn't really into Paquette's art on Return of Bruce Wayne #3.

Looking at and listening to Morrison, I expected him to say "jings' like Wee Hughie from the Boys.

This is my favorite interview of the Con... probably cause the man writes my favorite comic book... Joe the Barbarian!

Nice interview.  More interested in Batman Inc. than Grayson getting shot.

I am so jealous of Babs, getting to meet, in my opinion, the greatest author of the modern age!
 
Batman Inc. looks interesting, probably some kind of Batman family only Justice league. 
 
All around, great time to be a fan of the Dark Knight!

All I know is that Dick Grayson better not die or become a cripple. 
 
And did he say there is going to be a comic called BATMAN INCORPORATED?

When I started reading comics the first one I read was Batman #655 and thanks to Morrison I've been more and more into comics. He is one hell of a writer, he combines hidden elements in his stories, mithology and some magical references. 
  
I love what he's been doing with Dick on his run. I hope Dick would continue to be Batman (well, first of all be alive).

Well after seeing that I hate Morrison a bit less.  He seems like a decent enough guy.  He gave some hints to how this ends and if it is going to end the way I think it will, I may take back every bad thing I ever said about this running series.

Regarding Morrison saying that Dick will actually get shot, I dunno how to take that bit of knowledge. I just hope he doesn't die.

I absolutely adore Grant Morrison. He's, by far, the author that has made the deepest impact in my life. I hope he's at Comic Con in a few years, when I'll be able to go there. Meeting him in person, woah... That'd be AWESOME.

Oh man, I am so happy right now~ Grant makes me comic runs worth it~ Good to hear that Damian's not just gonna get the boot when Brucy's back, but the whole Dick thing really REALLY worries me... Cause we've seen what a shot to the head can do to a guy... Oh man... Now I can't wait for September!

Nice interview Babs! ^_~ 
I love Grant Morrison, I think out of all the other writers of batman he is the only one who really explores Bruce's family (it started because of his family) and I like that a lot! its drama, but really good drama.

This was a terrific interview, nice job Babs.   
 
I am really enjoying Grant's Batman and Robin.  The story has been so twisted at times I have to set the book down and take a breath.  I renewed my subscription and I'm glad for it.

Grant is so cool he makes mistakes just to know what it feels like. 
But seriously, great questions Babs. I really thought he was going to spill the beans there for a second.

I believe we just heard a 3rd pronunciation for Ra's
 
There's "Raz" (majority), "Raysh" (Tony) and Grant's "Rash." Good ol' Scottish accent.
Was looking forward to a potential interview with this guy, good luck to him on future Batman stories.

@FLStyle:  
 
Just for the record, I'm Scottish, from the very same city as Grant and that's the first I've heard it pronounced as 'rash'! Mister Morrison is just a bit quirky is all!

I would hope the Dick Grayson shot in the head line was a joke or him just messing with her.  
 
I started getting Batman again BECAUSE Dick Grayson took over the cowl. Him dead or at the very least in a vegetable state will ensure that Batman is no longer in my pull
