    I'm very excited for Batman 79 next week. I didn't dig the delays of 78, but getting two in a row is pretty sweet.
    Theirs another issue next week! YAS!

    Whats your prediction for how the next few issues pan out.

    I'm guessing he will rally his family in 80 or 81. Im very looking forward to them all battering bane.

    It really, really, really stinks that King can’t bring Dick back for the triumphant moment considering he played an important part of the fall. It’s a piece not coming back together.
    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.

    This is the moneyshot. Right here. BatCat will likely focus on the couple. This is the triumph over Bane. The whole crowd.

    I think King said that 81 is where the Batfam really start getting together.

    My prediction - hopefully Bat and Cat will come to some form of understanding going forward in 79, then the next few issues will be a revelation of how Bane and Flashpoint Batman's relationship is really working, and I think Scarface will be key to how it's unravelled.

    Yeah. I'm still mad that editorial or whoever decided that King's idea for Tim to help Dick in his own title was nixed. It could have been a nice five or six issue arc, then Tim could go off to Young Justice. But no. Ric. Sigh.

    I think Bat/Cat will probably have one or two Batfam interactions, though.

    That was never a pitched idea. It was just King saying in a podcast what he would have done if he had the time/interest in doing it. It was never something DC rejected. King's only involvement was shooting Dick in the head and then throwing the story over to editorial to sort out. He didn't care if they ignored it or undid it in the next issue with a Zatanna spell but he was going to shoot Dick in the head regardless. That is all he cared about. The original pitch from Percy was that Dick was going to suffer from vertigo after getting shot, we even got a solicit of it, but then that was suddenly scrapped for the amnesia plot with Lobdell coming on the book with Percy leaving after one issue.

    If King actually wanted to write a story and follow up with what happened to Dick after he got shot he had the pull to write it, but he didn't have any interest in doing it.

    Why would Dick come back in BatCat? He has nothing to do with their relationship except as Bruce's therapist that he didn't listen.

    While browsing on Amazon, I saw that they had City of Bane listed as a hardcover and as a Part 1. Pretty annoying that DC seems to be doing the thing they did for Snyder's run where the longer stories were split into two trades, to squeeze out more sales I guess.

    Though Knightmares was also originally listed as a hardcover and then cancelled + changed to a paperback when DC officially solicited it, so I'm half expecting the same to happen for the City of Bane trade(s).

    Interesting. I wish DC would do the 3 month thing for trades, but nope. More like 6 months.

    Though since City of Bane is gonna be about 12 issue counting the Annual, it makes sense to split it up.

    I was searching to see if there was a preview of the next issue yet and I accidentally landed on the first Batman #79.

    The name of the story, emblazoned on the cover, is "The Bride of Batman." Coincidence?

    Interesting! Checking out the summary, I doubt it, but it's kind of a funny coincidence. I should tweet at Tom King to tease him about that!

    Done, though I don't usually get responses from him.

    So the preview of 79 confirms via editor's note that 78 and 79 takes place before 77. Well, I guess this'll reignite our debate about whether these issues should've been placed before 77 or not. :P

    I wonder if the trade might actually reorder the issues around - I just checked my trade of I am Bane and it places 24 (the proposal) right after the main storyline and before 23's Brave and the Mold instead of going in order of publication.

    My fantasy/hope is that she gets completely depowered and becomes a new Oracle. But her death would be ok too.
