What's that? Frank Quitely art? Combined with crazed pseudo-logical paragraphs of the Final Crisis plot. I'll take it, please.

Yes. I want it. But February is so f*%&ing far away. Considering the last issue comes out this week (allegedly), that means the collection doesn't come out for another five months! Why?

Even though I haven't been reading the monthly issues, I've heard enough good things about this to pick it up.
BATMAN: R.I.P. THE DELUXE EDITION HC
Written by Grant Morrison

Legendary writer Grant Morrison concocts an unthinkable plot: The death of The Dark Knight! Collecting BATMAN #676-683 in an oversized Deluxe Edition, this volume features artwork by Tony Daniel.

Well, it's no Frank Quitely, but it is Grant Morrison.

So that's really it. I know, it's pathetic that all of my choices are Grant Morrison things, but you know how us GM fans are! Whatever!
