"Bruce Wayne of Earth...LIVE."

blog_xrayWe all knew it was inevitable. Death is never permanent in comic books and when Bruce Wayne checked out back in Final Crisis, it was just a matter of time before we'd see him again. The odd thing is, with Dick Grayson and Damien Wayne as the replacement Batman and Robin providing the most incredible entertainment the bat books have seen in years, I'm actually not really excited to see the guy come back.

Well, here it is anyway because Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne, a 6-issue mini series written by Grant Morrison kicks off this week. Essentially portraying Bruce's journey throughout time itself (I still don't get it), the book promises to put together the storyline pieces that the scribe has been spreading throughout his run on the character ever since he took over the main title back in 2006.

 

Now look. I'm definitely interested in seeing how everything is tied up - this is Grant Morrison after all and that guy is a crazy genius. I just hope that even though Bruce is coming back, it doesn't mean that he'll be immediately jumping back into the cape and cowl. This new dynamic duo is just too much fun and I don't want it to be over with any time soon.

You can check out the covers for the entire series by clicking here (they're actually pretty awesome), and see the list for the rest of this week's releases here.

I am unbelievably excited about the return of Bruce Wayne. I can't help myself, I just love the guy...
Totally see why you're afraid he will return the series for current issues though, since the last cover image looks contemporary...

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
