To Hell With Batman...Or At Least This Version...

Not to go all activist on you, but word has it that Frank Miller and Jim Lee’s “All-Star Batman & Robin The Boy Wonder #5” is due on store shelves on May 16.

The reason I cite activism is that any comic collector with an ounce of self-respect will ignore this book--and any successive issues—due to its infernal lateness, not just of a month or so, but nearly a year.

Why the delay?

The scuttlebutt has Jim Lee having overwhelmed himself with too many commitments to keep up with illustrating “ASB,” but what makes me even angrier is that DC didn’t just fire him and assign another artist to the book.

After all, that would have made sense. But hey, wanna keep the fanboys happy, right?

Screw ‘em, I say! Screw ‘em all….
