I believe I heard Andy Clarke is doing the backup for #12. Does anyone know who is doing the backups for the zero issue or the Joker arc? I heard Jock rumors but they were just rumors.
I really like the backups in Batman, they get high quality artists and the stories supplement the main feature really well. I love the Justice League backups too (Shazam is wonderful) and the All Star Western backups get super high quality artists. Only book I read that I don't like the backups is Action Comics, Sholly's stories feel like fluff and aren't worth the extra dollar IMO. I have no problem with backups if the quality justifies the extra dollar.
