I have to say this excites me. I loved Dick Grayson as Batman so losing that is a downer but the writers attached to both of these books have been terrific.

Scott Snyder’s Detective run has been spectacular. It has been edgy and not afraid to add some new gadgets and concepts to the Batman mythos. He’s added something fresh with the return of Jim Gordon’s son. His understanding and evolution of the relationship between the police and Batman has been one of my favorite elements. I am excited to see where he takes Bruce.

Tony Daniel really has impressed me with his growth as a writer on Batman. This really has been since the really cool Black Mask mystery. He hasn’t stopped delivering with the recent Sensei arc. I am glad he is sticking around.

My questions:

What does this mean for Dick Grayson, Tim Drake and Stephanie Brown? How will Batwoman fit into this?

I don’t think Bruce going back to Batman means that we lose Tim or Dick. Bryan Q. Miller has been amazing on Batgirl so I hope that character continues on. We’ll see. So far, the creative teams on the first two announcements have me excited.

Ok, it looks like Batman will retain most of the continuity with Damien staying as Robin! I am thrilled.

Ok, I have to say it. I am thrilled with the Barbara Gordon announcement because it keeps Gail Simone writing her!

Now I still wonder about Dick Grayson and Tim Drake. I am glad to see Damien. This is totally unexpected and I am curious to see how the revamps will be explained.

Judd Winnick on Catwoman sounds great. I will be curious to see how Birds of Prey plays out.

It looks like Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain are out. I am sad about this but I am a huge Batwoman and Barbara Gordon fan so will gladly read those two books.
