In the world of DC Comics, you don’t need super powers to look into your future. You just need Scott Snyder and Dustin Nguyen. In this week’s eagerly awaited BATMAN #28, we take a break from the ongoing “Zero Year,” and jump from the past deep into the future with a special standalone “spoiler” issue that looks at what lies in store for Batman in the months ahead.
One of the perks of working on DC All Access is that we’re occasionally able to read comics before they hit stands (it helps if we’re doing a feature on one of them…or in lieu of that, if you bribe the editors with cronuts), and such was the case with the first issue of The Royals: Masters of War. Knowing this, the editor of the Vertigo site asked if I’d mind writing a few words about it for their blog.
We’ve seen the future of Batman and it is… LEGO bricks? Okay, maybe not, but Batman gets a healthy dose of both in our latest episode of DC All Access. First, Scott Snyder joins us via our magic screen (that’s right…maaaaagic!) to discuss this week’s future shock Batman #28. Then later in the episode, LEGO Blair interviews a few of the DC Comics super heroes who are featured in the smash hit The Lego Movie.
Everyone, at one time or another, has dreamed of being Royality—the wealth, the recognition, the power. But what if there was more to that power?
