January 26, 2010 - Grant Morrison tipped the entire Batman franchise on its head in 2009. As if killing the Caped Crusader wasn't enough, Morrison brought in a new Dynamic Duo, this one markedly different from the status quo. Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne were immediately established as a "reverse" Dynamic Duo, with Grayson playing the role of a brighter, more optimistic leader and Damian being the fiery, skeptical and aggressive sidekick.
Batman and Robin has dominated the charts since its launch as fans have been glued to the eventual fates of these new heroes. But that's nothing compared to Morrison's plans for 2010. Last December, DC announced Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne, a six-issue mini-series poised to bring Bruce back to the modern DC Universe era. We snagged Morrison on the phone to discuss that event as well as his upcoming "Blackest Knight" arc in Batman & Robin. Artist Cameron Stewart is joining the title for a three-issue arc, the first chapter of which hits stores tomorrow.
I am thrilled to read such incredible news! Because Dick Grayson, although he did the job kinda well, is not "Batman". The cape and cowl is not made just for everyone.
