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!

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 internet service provider has often complained (such as when lobbying against net neutrality) that it must impose limits on service to prevent network congestion. The argument suggests that these measures are […]
