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!
Reader comment: Chris Arrant says,
In the write-up, you say the "next edition"… in the zany world of comics, there's 5 different monthly batman books. None of them will have this story?

He's been talking about this since 9-11, but no firm details on when it comes out. I'd hate for BoingBoing readers to knock down comic stores when they don't have this book ASAP.

The Cobham catalog, exposed by The Intercept, features countless pages of surveillance gadgets sold to U.S. police to spy on American citizens: tiny black boxes with a big interest in you. In the creepily bland feature lists and nerdy product names is a whisper of a dark future; perhaps darker than anyone can imagine.

Most of these are obvious staples, especially HTML red and blue, though it’s interesting how far the blue “cluster” is from the […]
With the cacophony of an election year ablaze with unparalleled drama being fought on the front lines of Twitter, we find ourselves slowing down and staring at it like a bad accident. The need for escapist relief is perhaps more dire than usual right now. This fall, if it’s drama you crave, but the Hillary […]
TV antennas are making a comeback, and the Ghost Indoor HDTV antenna is a great example of why. Unlike the old bunny ear-style antennas, this compact antenna is barely noticeable and picks up channels easily. Plus with the addition of streaming services like Netflix, we find ourselves with plenty to watch without a pricey monthly cable bill. The Ghost […]
I’ve never really felt the need to purchase a smartwatch because a lot of them aren’t very functional, but at just shy of $30, the Martian Notifier Smartwatch was worth checking out. For that low of a price, it actually does feature an impressive amount of functionality, and comes in handy when you don’t want to be carrying around your […]
