"Batman and Robin" #16 sent some shockwaves through its readership yesterday with Grant Morrison's big "Batman Inc."-related revelation. I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't made it to the last page yet, but if you have you'll enjoy a few of today's retweets a little bit more than everyone else.
In other posting, #tweetyour16yearoldself has been the big hash tag theme for the day, and both Skottie Young and Dan Slott had words of advice that they wish they could send back in time to their younger selves. Find out more about that along with what TV plans Brian Michael Bendis has been talking about and why Brad Meltzer was exceptionally pleased to hear that Bob Schreck is going to be overseeing Legendary Pictures' new comic book ventures.
