 I just happened to pick this up the other day, but I haven't read it yet.  I don't go to the comic store that much, but I saw it and decided to check it out.

I gotta admit that I'm not really a big fan of Damian Wayne as Robin.  (Tim Drake FTW, but only because Dick Grayson is cooler as Nightwing).  :)

The thing that confuses me, is that they released Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes #1 after the relaunch... It clearly states it takes place pre-DCNU, and even has Stephanie Brown in the issue.... The end of the issue then goes on to show where the story is going with the rest of the year... So if it's a pre-DCNU story that involves a character that has yet to make her reappearance and is obviously not Batgirl right now... How does that work?

 I'm not the expert by any means when it comes to recent comic history or the New 52.  However, I thought I heard somewhere that Batman was not rebooting but almost everyone else was.

And that, is what confuses me.

Wolf, Millean...you've both hit upon the reason I detest these reboots/relaunches.  Their pointless.  You're just not going to have a cohesive universe when its been around for 75 years and been created by hundreds of writers so why even attempt it?  Well money of course....LOL

DC's has the most fucked over continuity and everytime they try to "fix" it they just make it worse. And this McBatman idea is just stupid.

 The "McBatman" is one of the freshest ideas to come out of the Batman comics. Between this and Scott Snyder's Court of Owls it's a great time to be reading Batman comics.

The thing about Batman Incorporated and Court of Owls for that matter was that they're previous stories were started pre new 52. Snyder and Morrison are trying to cater what's left of their stories into the new continuity. Morrison I believe was given a little more creative freedom since his run ends with this arc. They probably would have let him finish it in the old continuity if it wasn't for the fact that the new 52 is doing so well. 

The story is great and the international batman idea was the natural progression of his story which was planned out years ago. If you read his entire run starting back with Batman and Son it reads like an epic batman story. Highly reccommend reading the whole story in collected edition. Batman and Son, Black Glove, Return of Rha's Al Ghul, Batmand RIP, Batman and Robin Vol. 1-3, Return of Bruce Wayne, and Batman International.

I might have to pick this up now that I know Steph Brown is in it.

I'm actually about to start reading all that stuff.  Trying to finish up Ultimatum right now and reading the awful Ultimates 3.  I've read all of Morrison's run on Batman up to the Grotesque 2 parter with Doug Moench.  I'm quite a bit behind on all comics, so i'm playing a few years catch up.
