“It starts at a little bar, and Selina Kyle and Joe Chill come along,” Gaiman said over the weekend, “and after that, it gets really odd.”
He also confirmed that the Andy Kubert cover that made the rounds back in September isn’t the actual cover for #685: “What it was, was a trial of an idea to draw the cover of Batman #1, and it didn’t work out really well.”
Grant Morrision, who will return to the series after Gaiman’s two-parter, said “Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?” is “going to be quite a personal thing” unrelated to what follows.
“Think of it as Neil Gaiman’s Batman,” Morrison said. “It’s not about continuity. It’s more kind of an overall look at the whole mythos.”
