The Batman/al Qaeda thing is kinda inaccurate - Miller's working on a graphic novel that he's been "120 pages" into for at least six months now. There's no release date, and he's gung ho about it, but swamped with other work. I'll have a full transcript of the Miller panel where he talks about it, in context, up in the next couple of days. I'll have one with Grant Morrison up as well soon, which will blow people's socks off!
