It's saying something when a LoSH character hanging out in Batman is hardly the most WTF moment of an issue.
The circus is a strange place, evident by the endless Nightwing stories that come from it.

Sorry Harper, Carrie Kelley Introduced in the New 52
So, this is going to be a weird issue of Batman and (Red) Robin. Not only will it star Tim Drake opposite of Batman, as well as featuring Frankenstein from the Justice League Dark for whatever reason, but next week's issue will also introduce Carrie Kelley into proper DC continuity for the first time ever.
Tomasi/DC isn't exactly saying that Carrie will be the next Robin, but have confirmed she'll be sticking around. Apparently she's more or less very similar to Frank Miller's version, but also somehow knew Damian prior to his death (which would explain the C.K. note from last issue).
I'm really, truly surprised by this. I was convinced that the next issue would have a skeletal Damian, Tim Drake in his old Robin costume, or Frankenstein on that fold out cover. Never would have thought they'd introduce Carrie into the proper DCU.
