Batman Dies: An Interview with Neil Gaiman

DC Comics picked Neil Gaiman to write the final two issues of their monthly Detective Comics.  The two-part series is called Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?  It chronicles the death of Batman.  This July, both issues of the comic will go on sale in a hardcover version.  After a period of no Batman comics, DC intends to reboot the franchise with new stories.  That sounds interesting.

The Gaiman story about Batman’s death sounds fascinating and the artwork looks incredible.  The issues were pencilled by Andy Kubert and inked by Scott Williams.  This looks like Batman comics just the way I like to see them. has a nice lengthy interview with Neil Gaiman about the creation of the story and his perspective on turning great comicbooks into movies.
