    Oh man this is a miniseries I've wanted for a while. And by Chip too? I loved his Spider-Man through the years book
    DC, hurry up and make your own version of Marvel Unlimited!

    Okay, that Baby Bruce Wayne looks even younger than the 17-year-old version Capullo drew in Zero Year

    We've never had a comic purely focused on Bruce's training, so this could be interesting.

    Might even pull a "life and times of Scrooge McDuck" and put together all the little bits and pieces we've gotten of his training in other comics together. Like he trained with the Zatara's, Ducard, Thaddeus Brown, etc.

    It does seem that way.

    If nothing else, it seems like it should be pretty easy to gauge if it's going to work for a given reader or not.

    Cool, I'm always interested in early years/origins Batman stuff, and his training is usually not the main focus of these things typically so I'm very curious to see how they'll handle it.

    The art looks great and I'm curious about how Zdarsky handles young Bruce and his training.

    Origin stories are a favourite of mine and I really like Chip Zdarsky's writing so this is a lock for my pull list. Only artwork I've seen from Carmine Di Giandomenico is the cover for the book. That's all.

    This has the potential to be the book of the year...hopefully it leads to chip getting the gig full time if Williamson shits the bed..

    Really excited for this!

    Love that the focus is on Bruce pre-Batman.
