And In Other News...
Conservative Life, whose death we somberly announced some time ago, seems to have shambled back from beyond the grave. And they're all over this story, from some batshit insane woman down south. Here's an excerpt:
During his WonderCon panel, Frank Miller discussed his next graphic novel. Once again, Miller returns to the world of the Batman, this time with Holy Terror, Batman!. Though the title plays with Robin's classic catchphrase, the book deals with a serious subject. Gotham has been attacked by Al Qaeda and Batman sets out to defend the city he loves. The book, which Miller has inked through 120 pages, is expected to run roughly 200 pages total.
Miller proudly announced the title of his next Batman book, which he will write, draw and ink. Holy Terror, Batman! is no joke. And Miller doesn't hold back on the true purpose of the book, calling it "a piece of prop[a]ganda," where 'Batman kicks al Qaeda's ass."
I'm actually sort of interested to see what comes of this, although I'm not a real fan of the superhero genre of comic books. And, speaking of things "comic," I invite you to check out the Comments section for this story. It seems some folks are pretty excited, although because Miller once portrayed Ronald Reagan as less than truly divine, he's still suspect.
