I’ve been reading over past columns to make sure I don’t repeat myself. Still, there is a line I used last year that pretty much sums up my feelings this week. I’m not sure how improper it is to quote yourself, but here goes: “Seriously, San Diego Comic Con is like NOTHING you have ever experienced … and once again I shall not be going.”

For folks who find an undead Bruce Wayne hurling through time and space as he tries to reconstitute his consciousness, DC has further bizarre adventures for your approving perusal in DC’s Greatest Imaginary Stories Vol. 2: Batman and Robin TP. Continue reading
