Tomasi and Guillem March, Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen, Gregg Hurwitz and Neal Adams, new art by legendary Batman writer/artist Frank Miller and more!

    So are these canon stories for the Nu52 or just anniversary (and hopefully good) one shot stories?

    Haven't really kept up on the news for this issue.

    The latter, I think.

    I'm annoyed that the only story being previewed is Metler's.

    Speaking as a Meltzer fan, I don't like the first pages of his story.

    He's not doing anything particularly new or exciting, not to mention that all of those "I do it" are already getting annoying.

    Hitch's art doesn't look that impressive either.

    It looks good, Meltzer's story. The art is lovely. The Batman costume really tows the line between the sort of New 52 style gloves and boots, a belt that's somewhat Batman, Inc. and a totally classic costume, otherwise. Looks fun.

    That Tony Daniel variant cover kind of made me laugh, because of how messed up it looks out of context. Batman just wailing on mental patients ... such a great image to convey. Kids really ought to look up to a guy who constantly breaks into mental institutions to beat up the "freaks" that live there. Weird side-effect of the "Batman's crazy villains locked up in one not-quite-prison" storytelling scenario.

    "Mental patients"?!?

    I figured they were just your garden variety prison convicts. Is orange the color of loony bins or something?

    Really cool to see Hitch on Batman but yeah, that narration is incredibly annoying.

    It's hard to read, with the word "featuring" in the way, but one of the sleeves looks like it has "ARKHAM" written on it.

    It definitely says Arkham Inmate. Good catch.

    I didn't read any of the preview but the art looks pretty good. I'm really hoping this issue turns out great. I enjoy all of the talent involved. The ears on Jim Lee's cover would look cooler if they were shorter, but I do like the idea he was going for.

    Hitch's art looks stunning as always, but does anyone else wish he was drawing him in the Year Zero suit?
