DC Comics announced this morning that Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's next major "Batman" story will take readers to the Dark Knight Detective's past -- "Year Zero," to be specific.

Except I thought he kinda did that already in the Zero issue. If this is 11 issues there won't be anything left of Year One at all!"We tried to preserve as much of Batman's history as we could and keep what we could of this history intact," Snyder said of the change. "It's 'The Zero Year,' the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super*villain."
It's not so much an origin story as it is a view into Batman's formative*years.
"We're not going to take apart 'Year One,'" Snyder said, referring to the Frank Miller-David Mazzucchelli four-issue arc that recounted how Wayne began to fight crime after years away. "There's no touching the hem of that*book."
I'll remain open minded though, despite being fairly disappointed with Owls and the Joker story.
