Read on December 31, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I am actually in the middle of American Gods, the author's preferred text, and have taken a break at the point Shadow arrives in Lakeside. Luckily my sister swooped over my wish list for Christmas and bought me Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader by Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert.

I was worried it was very thin for the price, but the rich artwork, clever story, 3 bonus stories, Neil Gaiman's introduction, and some pre-ink pencil drawings all make it worth while. Favourite quote, by Alfred: And then he began dressing as a bat ... as an Englishman, I find it difficult to identify the place that eccentricity ends and madness begins. That Master Bruce was eccentric, I do not deny. And I admit it is not normal to dress as a giant bat and fight crime.

Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow is now on my wish list!
