    The current rumor is Babs will be back as Batgirl.

    No proof, but with Morrisons so-so run on Rip and DiDo's past decisions it's the current fan conjecture on other boards, plus they canceled Batgirl(cain) again.

    I don't read Robin or Nightwing, but Birds of Prey has been pretty bad ever since Gail Simone left. It's really more of a mercy killing at this point.

    But if Barbara Gordon goes back to being Batgirl there will be hell to pay.

    I really like Nightwing as a character, but I don't follow the book too closely. It's still disappointing though. I hope he doesn't become Batman, because he's said many times that he doesn't want to be Batman.

    Most of the books haven't been as good since Dixion left them, though the new writers on nightwing and robin were doing a good job.

    you know, it just dawned on me that maybe they'll make these three into one book, as a batman family book, so different writers can take different characters and run with them...

    though dick as batman and tim staying as robin i'dlike...and nightwing could just be not used for awhile...i really want bruce to die, but tim isnt ready to be batman yet, nor is he old enough...and jason todd should be red robin...unless red robin is azreal...

    Damn, I don't even read these books, but I hate when long running titles are cancelled just to be relaunched.

    I was thinking of dropping Nightwing, gave up on Birds of Prey right after Ice came back. Was enjoying Robin, though.

    I'd imagine a Batman family book is a possibility, though probably it'll end up as Nightwing and Robin or something. I wouldn't mind Robin going if the main books added more Batman & Robin stories and gave Robin the occasional solo outing. Robin on his own is cool, though I don't care for the supporting cast.

    They could simply relaunch it as Gotham Knights. Focusing on all of Batman's supporting players.

    I might actually buy that. I'd like to follow these characters more, but i can't afford an extra 3 or 4 books a month.

    I was just reading Submit #1 and it looked like Nightwing was receiving a hell of a beatdown by some Anti-life zombies. I wonder if it's an omen of things to come...

    Nightwing 150 was actually a pretty good issue too, I've been enjoying this new creative team.
