    In this issue the goddamn Batman beats down a bunch of goons, and makes out with Black Canary. "We keep our masks on. It's better this way." :lol  Also the goddamn Batman brings Robin the man that killed his parents and they find out he was hired by the Joker. The issue was fun but had too many splash pages, not enough dialogue.

    P.S. "goddamn" usage count in this issue: 8 times.

    Hmmm, sounds interesting...especially about making the Joker the killer of Robin's parents - but I think I will wait for the TPB to be released.

    At this rate, you'll be in luck: the first will be released about 2012. Just in time to compete with the first volume of Ultimates 3.

    I read it in the store because I couldn't believe the book was actually coming out semi-bi-tri monthly.

    Frank Miller has got to be making fun of himself, it's the only explanation. I mean the book is awesome if you read it as a total selfparody, but I still dunno if that's intended.

    I mean Black Canary falling in love with Batman, with a thought train of "Here I am. I'm in LOVE with him. The Goddamn Batman."....:lol

    So when are they going to change the title for real?

    Frank Miller is insane. Look at his previous Batman stuff, it was always like this. I don't know how he keeps getting work on Batman, really.

    He's a superstar in Hollywood so I guess it's to draw in more readers.

    I laughed out loud when he was talking about the Batmobile.

    That alone was worth the cover price.

    I find this series to be hilarious. I remember reading a review of it online with pages scanned in(1st issue). At that time, I thought someone had photoshopped their own text in, and did a damn good job of it. I realized much later, that it wasn't photoshopped, but scanned in verbatim just to show what the book was like. I was cracking up the entire time I was reading those scans.

    I was also cracking up while I skimmed through the latest issue in the bookstore. I read DKR and DKSA(DK2), and niether was as comical as ASBAR. DKSA comes close, but WOW ABSAR is CRAZY!

    I'll buy it as a trade so I can have my laughs contained all in one fell swoop.

    I was thinking the same thing, but at the rate these issues are coming out I don't think the TPB will be ready until 2013.

    I dunno though, they actually managed to get two issues out bimonthly so it's likely they could be back on a consistant schedule (wouldn't completely bet on it though). Then again considering how long it takes for DC to make a TPB after the hardcover is out (see: Infinite Crisis) a 2013 release might be likely too.

    Yeah, I think I will wait for the TPB also...I've sort of lost my patience in waiting for the last few issues.

    From what my retailer keeps saying, it's Jim Lee's admin duties getting in the way of him actually doing the art. Okay. So why not get someone else to do art then that isn't also helping to run a company?

    Because part of the draw is Jim Lee doing the art; it's why it gets the sales it does. If they had Whilce Portacio drawing it I think it'd be kinda popular, but probably not enough to maintain it around the 100000s currently.

    All-Star titles are not in the same continuity as the regular DC books.

    But she's a woman being written by Frank Miller, so the slut label isn't really misplaced. :p

    Just wait until Batgirl stumbles in on Black Canary and Batman... "Oh man, you guys really keep the masks on! That's so cool! I want in."

    I haven't read an issue since the first one, but I read my friend's copy of this issue the other day. It was so goofy and funny that I may have to start reading it.
