Sounds like we have Bruce's book. Maybe? Much like Steve is Super Solider, Bruce will be Dark Knight. Many books centered on batman allows for niche selling. Too much? Only if you have to buy them all but I say only buy what you like a la carte. Grant's run on Batman and Robin will be ending too, or so he indicated in an interview a while back. i don't think the book will continue once he is done with his story. This will fill that gap. thoughts?
I have been with this book since issue 1 and have enjoyed every issue. Lemire has made me care about a little boy with antlers and an ex-hockey goon. This issue was a home run ending to the 2nd book/arc of the series and the arc provide much of the needed back story for Jepperds. I agree with waiting for next issue and buying the trade. Good review for this great book.
In the current order of the christian gods would dictate that Lucifer would win because he as God himself are both immortal and not subject to Death. There is a really good novel series by Piers Anthony that dealt with the offices of the Immortals. The first book is call On a Pale Horse. The Incarnations of Immortality. Good Stuff!
