    You don't seem to have taken weight into consideration. I'm not a horse expert, but from my understanding, Bruce and Selina, plus their clothing and equipment--easily more than 350lb, probably closer...

    Ric.

    Seriously though, the reductive TMNTization of Robins is nothing short of problematic.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm aware of Gerads' tweet. Let me say first I'm by no means implying he's untrustworthy or anything, however, considering how sudden and rushed the series of announcements are...

    I find it quite interesting a situation, really.

    There seems to be a trade-off between the significance of King's change and its canon validity. Seeing the executives are vehemently against King's...

    Thanks for the link.



    According to King, the big change was planned to occur between #90 and #105. Considering King's run will end at #85, and assuming it's too late to alter the City of Bane...

    Can you please point me to the interviews?

    My understanding of the situation is King's proposed big change is vetoed and will not happen in the main book. (Otherwise why remove King from it in the...

    I don't find it hard to imagine, for the "canonness" of comicbook stories is not a simple canon/non-canon dichotomy, but a spectrum. I wouldn't put it past DC to attempt to both have their cake...

    The Batman in all Frank Miller's Bat-works is one single person. Some of his experiences (covered by Year One) constitute a part of the respective lores of both main universe and Millerverse.

    Because the "conditionally canon" situation is nothing new in comics. For example, Miller's ASBAR Batman is not the main universe Batman despite that he and the guy in Year One, who is the main...

    Has there been any clarification regarding whether this book is properly "in continuity" or only in the sense that it is a continuation of King's story and is canon to only his Batman?

    It seems you take a more Doylist approach (defining "Golden Age Dick" as the Dick who appears in comics during the Golden Age period), while I'm more Watsonian-leaning (trying to correlate different...

    Yeah, saying he's 12 is a bit exaggerating.

    However, I don't think Dick was 15-16 in the Golden Age. He was around 15 during most of the Silver Age and gets a little older toward the end. From an...

    Ah. I see. Thanks. I now dread Lobdell's Nightwing, seeing amnesiac Dick isn't even his idea to begin with.



    Thanks for clearing things up. I feel the same regarding the future of Nightwing.

    I don't. But I if someone does choose to interpret the whole thing this way I can't say they're definitely wrong because the explanation may be true (even if unlikely).
