While fans may have spent hours analyzing the cover to the first part of Neil Gaiman's "Whatever Happened To The Caped Crusader after it was leaked in September, all of their work was for naught. As Gaiman explained to MTV News, "That wasn’t the cover... What it was, was a trial of an idea to draw [a new version of] the cover of ‘Batman’ #1, and it didn’t work out really well." Gaiman also explained what his two-part Batman story was all about: "It starts at a little bar, and Selina Kyle and Joe Chill come along,” he said, “and after that, it gets really odd... It’s certainly a last Batman story... It’s my last Batman story." [MTV Splash Page]
