It's going to be divided into two parts, that might mean something, maybe not.

Well, it should mean that Part II will be extremely epic, at least. Superman and the Joker, anyone?

I would hope the entire comic would be adapted if we're getting the damn thing in two parts !

So Batman: Earth One is out and it's been getting extremely good reviews. I'm looking forward to reading it.

Incidentally, can someone explain to me the titles of the Earth One books? Isn't the main DC Universe Earth One? How does it make sense to title books with new continuities after the regular one?

Perhaps it has to do with the reboot?

Well, I'm pretty sure Superman: Earth One came out awhile before the New 52 and even if you're right, it still doesn't make much sense.

Yeah, I've actually wondered that myself

Well, apart from that, I just read the three issue Batman: Dark Knight Dark City.

It was pretty good. I kind of like seeing Batman deal with supernatural threats occasionally, which is something I don't see all that much.

I thought the main DC universe was new Earth, but that could have changed after new-52

So it goes Earth Prime, New Earth, Earth-Two, and so on?

I guess that makes sense.

Well, it makes comic book sense.

So, yeah, you're right. It doesn't.

Well, I just read Batman: Earth One. It was pretty cool and interesting, but nothing amazing and not necessary reading by any means.

Does anything change ?

In Superman: Earth One, Krypton was destroyed by a neighboring alien race, also, Superman's emo.

The main thing that jumps to mind is that Alfred was a war vet with Thomas and is more of a gun toting bad-ass than faithful butler. He's still Bruce's friend, though. There's also an interesting take on Harvey Bullock.

Well, it mentioned the desert.

It wasn't a bad change, though. It was pretty cool as far as deviations go.

Edit: Here's a cool interview of Scott Snyder talking about the Joker in his upcoming story arc if anyone's interested.

And Grendel is not even a Btman villain... they were in a few (two) crossovers... but Grendel isn't even a DC character

Also, Harley is not #13... she's just a fan favorite.

ruling... the list is shit!

Starting with him at #50 is already a BAD sign.
