Batman #17 Preview  (UPDATED)

This is it: The stunning conclusion to “DEATH OF THE FAMILY”!



Source: Comics Continuum

• Who lives? Who dies? Who laughs last? Find out as Batman and The Joker face off one last time!

 
 
In "Batman" #17 you'll learn why he did it, why he had his face cut off and strapped back on. This final issue will bring everything crashing down.
 

It has a big impact on the whole mythology of Batman, and certainly with the stories coming afterward, it will have a big effect on many of the books -- emotional and lasting effects I don't want to give away.

So has anybody actually died yet? Or does anybody actually die?

Has it been a member of the (Batman) Family? As in a significant member as opposed to some throwaway character?

CNN: It feels like the stakes are being raised in superhero comics more and more in recent years, with more dramatic changes. Why do you think this is?

Snyder: It's not so much to make the books as dramatic as possible or to be shocking, but to try to tell the best story you can that feels organic.

It's not been a marching order. (My editors) say, write this character as if you had just one chance to write him; proceed that way. What if I had these six issues, what would I do to tell this story? It's exciting to have that opportunity.


And that's the reason the Nu52 fails. It's the Sword of Damocles placed above every writer's head where they know they could be fired at any moment. It's a real-life Glengary, Glen Ross.

I think he took it as a threat instead of a motivational statement on par with a poster of a cat hanging from a tree limb telling us to "Hang in there!"

I'm way behind on the story and want to avoid the spoilers, but I might have to bite the bullet and take a gander. People seem to either love the ending or hate it with a passion.
