The parallels between Damian: Son of Batman and Injustice: Gods Among Us are striking. In both cases, Damian is somehow responsible for Richard Grayson’s death, fights against his father and almost kills him. Somehow it seems hard to escape your fate.
I knew that Damian: Son of Batman would soon make a dark turn, but still, this was a pretty shocking issue. I wonder if Tim is going to turn up next time - and if Bruce will survive. Who was that weird nurse anyway?
P.S. I like Damian’s sideburns!
Major spoiler - perfect to be put in a preview!
So those who assumed that the Batman who died in Damian: Son of Batman #1 was Dick Grayson were right after all. Kudos, I would never have figured that out. That’s what you get for jumping to conclusions. I still can’t fathom how to see this as a logical continuation of pre-reboot continuity. And how could Bruce get so old in five or six years?

Li’l Gotham #24 is out, the story is great fun, the colours are even more vibrant than usual, yet I’m in a slight state of shock! Not because of the bird; they find and save Jerry the Turkey in the course of the story, but because according to the preview at the end of the issue, the next issue (scheduled for December 22), will be the last one.
This means that from January 2014 onward, Damian will not be in any ongoing series anymore until he returns, hopefully, in Batman and Robin, which is a really depressing thought. I would like for DC to give Dustin Nguyen a new series where he can explore a few of the ideas he had for Li’l Gotham in a more serious environment (I’m particularly thinking of the Damian/Collin and Damian/Tim dynamics; he can also be free to introduce Jerry to the Batcanon). Problem is: I hardly ever get my wish, especially not when DC is involved.
P.S. Did Damian sign that poster with D. instead of R?! What a lapse in security!
This is a good point to ask you about your thoughts and feelings, so what do you think?
