    Do we really think Didio would be ok with Batmna having a small kid? I feel like there is going to be some time shenanigans involved so Helena can be her proper age. Or maybe they'll do like Trunks in DBZ where this is both a kid Helena and a adult Helena who comes from the future/or earth 2.

    He's already okay with the first small kid

    Is Zatanna ever gonna make an appearance in your run? I think it’d be neat to see her react to the BatCat romance. https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...65341432074245 “Nope. Wish there was time for everyone. Love their history from the Dini stuff.”

    not sure if I’ll be seen but was curious on Batman day what comic you think most inspired your run https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...68153813573634 “Frank Miller’s Born Again. For sure. Too obviously really.”

    beyond what we've seen with the nightwing/kgbeast storyline, will we see more explorations of batman as a father? it's one of my favorite aspects of the character https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...73349692182528 “A little at the end. A lot in Bat/Cat.”

    What has been your favorite part of your Batman run and what has been your least favorite? �� I can't think of a least favorite there all amazing but my favorite is the whole Bat and Cat parts (which take up alot of it) https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...75810767163394 “I really like Batman Annual 2; I think Batman 2-4 are a bit weak. Was getting my legs beneath me.”

    Mitch said he feels your Batman is around 50 years old. Do you agree with him? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...76070272950273 “I could see that.”

    Haven't read Batman in...a while. Though I did read Batman 50 (good job btw loved it), I'll admit I was kind of lost. Where do I start with your run? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...76436284690434 “Pretty much every 25 issues is a chapter. So 1, 25, 75 are good spots.”

    Was the "We met on the beach" moment planned from the start? If so? Brilliant. https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...80290862669826 “Yes. Ish.”

    What will it take for Bruce to give up being Bats or has he given up too much of his existence to being Batman? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...81095388848129 “Find out in issue 82.”

    not Batman-related directly, but after the « Good Intentions » trilogy and the one right now with Miracle, Batman and HiC, is Strange the beginning of a new era/trilogy for you ? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...88217321213953 “Yup. Strange and Bat/Cat are addressing a new theme.”

    The "boat vs street" thing in @TomKingTK's Batman makes me realize that Year One paints Bruce's early Batman years as gritty and grounded, but the old Silver Age stuff is mostly still canon, so his life goes from Miller right to Dick Sprang and then back again in like two years. https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...26640786583553 “Which is probably more true to life than everything being consistent. As yo go along, it sometimes seems you have many authors.”

    Have you ever considered bring back someone from 60's TV show? Like King Tut? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...47298669051904 “Tried to. Legal vetoed it. See Batman 55 for our creation of the incredibly memorable Fantasic Pharaoh or something. My real legacy.”

    are u gonna work with jorge fornes again?? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...69591759724545 “Hell yeah. He’s doing the next annual, which is sort of my ultimate thesis/last word on Batman, and he’s doing one more issue near the end.”

    i’ve loved how you’ve written the robins when they’ve appeared. what made you chose to include them as little as you did? we’re there ever plans for a more robins centered arc or was it always batcat? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...71825255956480 “Robin appearances were limited by stuff going on in other books/plans sadly. Love writing them.”

    which is your proudest moment as Batman writter? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...77627022843909 “When Lee Weeks won a Ringo for Batman/Fudd and got a standing ovation. So long deserved.”

    if you could point to one moment/scene/issue of your run thus far as “the one you want them to remember you for” what would it be? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...79059214049280 “Bruce and Swamp Thing having tea in the library from 23. Got a beautiful Mitch Gerads print of it up in my office.”

    In addition to Andrea Beaumont, can we expect another big presence on the BatCat miniseries? �� https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...79224171778050 “Yes. A big one.”

    When you started mapping out your Batman run did you always intend for it to end with The Phantasm? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...80778060812293 “No. That was Clay Mann’s brilliance. But she fit perfectly into the plan, so awesome.”

    Why did you choose to write Batman and what did you like the most about his mythology?? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...81656704528386 “You don’t say no to Batman...until you do. I like how he took his pain and built a family.”

    Soo.... did you guys meet on the street...or a boat? https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...91022732165121 “My wife and I can’t agree on where our first date was some 19 years back. This is actually the origin of the boat/street talk. Write what you know, or what you don’t, rather.”
    So I guess King Tut was the 60's villain he couldn't get to use? Although I think he popped up in the recent Year of the Villain Riddler one-shot.

    If they are potentially going to be replacing Bruce with Luke Fox after issue 100, wouldn't this be the perfect time to try this out?

    I couldn't celebrate Batman's day since I was ending the one week long celebration of my national holidays, but I did manage to read the lastest Batman issue and I loved it. City of Bane is slowly growing up to be my favorite arc written by Tom King. I don't know if DC is going to keep on releasing the (not so much nowadays) Deluxe Editions, but after the cheap quality of volume 4 I might end up getting City of Bane in two hardcover editions. As a big Bane fan, I want to have this storyline in the best possible format.

    I appreciate that Tom King took the time to do a Q&A in Twitter, there're some really interesting answers and it shows how much comic book readers will never know of what happens behind the scenes

    Having Earth 2 Helena doesn't gel since it's been done before. Tims shenanigans with a baby from this earth's Selina would be the way to go. Though how old do age her to?

    Bruce was really cold when he met Helena from another dimension. During New 52 he was defo a bit unfeeling when it came to some members of the family sometimes.


    in comics their isnt really much of a toddler stage. your either a baby or your old enough to be in costume.

    Just reading between the lines here...(and that bedroom scene in issue 79.)
    I had not considered Helena as a possible thing going forward...but it would be pretty fascinating!

    I'd be REALLY worried if they kept her a toddler, because of what happened to Lian (and Sin) in pre-Flashpoint continuity.

    I dont understand why they get so nervous about lengthening the batman timeline. Even with the addition of a new baby. Worst case if Bruce gets too old they could just make up some way for his body to be back in his physical prime. Like through Lazarus pits or being revived from death etc.

    Marketing. Didio and Harras love making everything short and easy and small so they can market it.

    Mitch Gerads posted on Twitter the other day about taking a break from Strange Adventures to draw a goodbye to Gotham. I don't remember him being solicited in any of these final issues. Do you think he will be providing supporting pages, or will we get another issue out of King in one form or another? Be it a one-shot, a special, or what have you, I'd totally welcome it.

    Another possibility I'm wondering about is the transition from King to Tynion. I know that the circumstances of Rebirth necessitated a status quo reestablishing additional first issue, but I would absolutely appreciate a King to Tynion transition issue in the same vein as the one we got from Snyder to King.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    I think Clay Mann is doing the whole thing. King posted on twitter that all the scripts are already done.
    https://twitter.com/TomKingTK/status...82605649776642

    That doesn't prevent Gerard from working on an annual for Bat/Cat, a King/Gerard story in a Batman annual, or some kind of special.

    I believe since King mentioned that Jorge Fornes would also be coming back beyond just his story in Annual #4, I think we may be getting some guest artist appearances in #85. I also would not be surprised if other artists end up showing up in Bat/Cat beyond just Mann, especially the finale if that's his "biggest issue he's ever written."

    I don't think we'll be getting a transition issue, just because that was something they did special for every series during Rebirth, and the reason they hired Tynion was because of his familiarity with Batman already, so he could easily just jump into #86 and just start up his story.
