    Spoiler's death/crippling will of course make Batman uniformly psychotic again. He'll alienate his friends--assuming he has anybody left from the last time he alienated his friends. He'll brutalize his enemies as if he were the commandante of Abu Graib, and he'll descend into a spiral of self-loathing. This new edict will result in waves of hardcore Batman fans leaving the book and a short-term monetary influx from fickle flash-in-the-pan curiosity seekers who will try anything hyped. This is not the way to run a business. These seekers won't be sticking around for the long term, and the change will have already driven away more of the hardcore comic book readers. They're not coming back DC, and in the long run, you'll be losing more money. Comic books aren't for kids anymore, and DC intends to kill another one to prove it. Read Full Review
