Batman: Prelude to the Wedding Part 1 - Robin vs. Ra's al Ghul #1 hit newsstands two weeks ago, officially setting a new standard by which the once long and unwieldy Annihilation: Conquest titles are considered concise. Since my only interest in Batman comics is my favorite fake arcade game, Cheese Viking, I didn't get around to reading it until yesterday. Imagine my horror when I saw this:
That's Damien "This Year's Robin" Wayne using some dude wearing black leather's own whip to fling him into Gotham City's only Cheese Viking cabinet, because apparently Fredric Wertham was right all along.
Damien is appropriately horrified when he realizes what he's done. But, since he was dead for a while himself, he knows better than most that comic book deaths are rarely permanent. Let's hope that's as true for Cheese Viking as it was for him.
