Red Hood, Mr. Freeze, China Town, with Kenneth Rocafort illustrating all this? Sign me the hell up.
But not everything is good news. With this issue, I really, and I mean REALLY wanted a simple one page tense as all hell scene between Jason and Bruce, seeing as it seems like there won't be a whole lot of those scenes given the direction Lobdell is taking the book. Turns out there was going to be one, then it was cut. Lobdell said:
"There is zero interaction between the two. There was going to be a one-page cameo where Jason dropped a defeated Talon onto the floor of the Batcave in front of Batman and says, "Don't say I've never done anything for you," but it got edited out because it didn't fit into the Batman story."DAMN IT! That's exactly what I would have wanted! Just drop a Talon and a "fuck you" then bail... MAN, that would have been perfect.
