19 Pieces Of Batman Gossip From The Bars Of New York Comic Con

This is usually about how long it takes to reach me. But interesting folk at last weekend's New York Comic-Con risked life and limb by gossiping, unmasked, about the future of Batman at DC Comics. And this is what has reached my limey ears, sitting in a study in South West London… feel free to tick off however many, if any, nuggets we get right over the next few weeks. Make sure you keep coming back to check, and bollock me in the comments if anything is egregiously incorrect. I might even read it…

Batman Gossip From The Bars Of New York Comic Con

1. Batkids Beat The Whole Family

Damian Wayne can take out the entire rest of the Batfamily, if he just wants to get to his dad. But then so can Failsafe. They are both, of course, children of Batman.

Batman fighting the Batfamily is like therapy for him. Can that be healthy?

3. A Short Story

Don't expect the Queen Of Fables to last long in this story.

Welcome a newly built Batmobile just for speed, with a little of the Speed Force access in its design – The Bat-Bolt. Too soon for Christmas toys? It may not last that long.

5. Monkey News

We already saw Damian Wayne in Monkey Prince #2. Well, watch for Monkey Prince #9 to cross over big time with Batman Vs Robin in response.

6. Fox News

We already saw that I Am Batman has a Dark Crisis crossover. But might Jace Fox need a Failsafe all of his own?

As Bruce Wayne has an early nickname from Ra's Al Ghul, The Demon's Heart.

14. You Had One Job, Alfred

Alfred may be back in Batman Vs Robin, but not for long. And he was the one in charge of resetting Failsafe if it was triggered without reason…

15. Where The Streets Have New Names

Failsafe has turned every street in Gotham into Crime Alley.

16. Crime Travel
