This is part of what is apparently a cover of one of the upcoming Bruce Wayne: The Return Home books, featuring Batman and Robin jumping off a building, away from an explosion. Also, somebody is shooting lasers at them. Well, one of them looks like it might be a freeze ray.
(It’s the spiraling secondary ray that gives it away.)
Oh, and there are some giant letters that look like they used to spell out the f-word.
Subliminal commentary on the state of Batman continuity post-Grant-Morrison? I wish. Entirely innocent mistake? I’d be surprised. Part of a sentence spelled out by the rest of the covers, excoriating DC’s new editor in chief (as suggested by Bleeding Cool forumers)? Hilarious, but unlikely.
Bound to get some attention and/or swift editing, not unlike another foul mouthed Batman story? well, DC has already removed the image from their website. I’m making popcorn as we speak.
