...you MUST read this link.  Now.  No, not later, I mean right now.  It goes into glorious detail about the shitty new Miller/Lee Batman and Robin All Star Series (i.e., the series that brought you the infamous "I'm the Goddamn Batman" quote).   I only own the first two issues and stopped because honestly, they sucked.  But read this because I haven't laughed so hard at an article in a long time. 

Four Words: Dick Grayson: Age Twelve.

Seriously, check it out.

UPDATE: Here's the follow up link for the next few issues.  Seriously awful garbage.  I think Miller HAS to be doing this as a great FU to the fans, to DC, to whomever, because I KNOW he has to know that this is utter garbage.

Bwahahahaha! I laughed my ass off. Teh hurri-hubby is going to be upset because he likes me ass but oh well. That was funnier than hell. I haven't read Bats in ages. And I so don't like Frank Miller it is not even funny. Thanks for the giggles, hon!

OI, that hurts! Jesus, Frank, what happened!? I enjoy it for the lolz, but I hurt because I didn't know Frank could write SOOOO BADLY. There's another one of those that's only semi-decent because of Jim Lee's artwork. That poor man seems to get stuck with shitty storytelling time and again.

And you know what? Dick's 12. :p

Isn't that AWFUL?! Did you check out the second link? I just updated it with another column that he wrote on the next three. Effing AWFUL. HE MUST be doing this to screw with the fans. There's just no other explanation for this crapola.

If you read it as cranked to the max satire, it's fantastic. But, if you read it seriously, it's garbage, a huge fuck you to the fans.

Ellis did this much, much better in Nextwave: "Beating people up to save the world."

How do you view it; satire or an embittered writer who should just stop before he ruins his good name? I agree with you about the satire, but part of me hates that he used Bat's as the medium with which to do it.

That makes me want to cry. Right now seems to be the arch in comics of the "Asshole Batman", WTF? Really?

Wow.

As one of the very few people to ever boldly proclaim that Dark Knight Returns is a shitty and wildly overrated comic book, I feel somewhat vindicated by this nonsense.

Isn't that epic? I can't wait for the next installment of this guy's blog. I still can't figure out whether he's doing this as satire or whether he's for real. If it's for real, he's lost all connection with reality and with what his target audience is looking for.

If its satire/parody, well, it's GoddamnBatman!awesome.
