Batman R.I.P. – The Death of Batman?

So what will writer Grant Morrison do with Batman? The Batman R.I.P. storyline, started in Batman 677, could be the end of the Caped Crusader as we know him.

To mourn the potential end of this character (at least for a few months) I thought it would be fun to post a couple of my favorite “Death of Batman” covers.

First up is Batman #244. This is a classic Neal Adams cover with R’as Al Ghul in the background. The Neal Adams covers have to be my favorite anyway, and this one wins the prize for me.

If you have any favorite death of Batman covers let me know, I’ll try to dig them up and post them on the site.

My second favorite has to be Batman #291. Who could argue with a tombstone vandalized by the words “burn in hell.” Nice, wholesome words for kids everywhere.
