Inside Look: BATMAN and ROBIN #8 -- On Sale Now!

We thought we might as well make our continuing coverage of Grant Morrison's wonderful Batman and Robin as regular a feature on the blog as it can be - and as February's a short month that will see not one but two issues of the comic hitting stands, there couldn't be a better time to make it so.  

Heroic dabblers will recall that Cameron Stewart joined Morrison last month; now the artist extraordinaire concludes his three-issue arc with this month's “Blackest Knight” parts 2 and 3 -- guest-starring Batwoman! (Part 2 is available as we speak from your local comics shop, with the last chapter soon to come on February 24th.)  We've got a special six-page preview of Morrison and Stewart's story just below, as well as a look at the issue's pair of covers by Stewart and the series lead artist Frank Quitely. But first, here's what DC had to say about all the action you'll find in Batman and Robin #8:
Story Synopsis: Only months into his new role as Batman, Dick Grayson faces perhaps the biggest threat of his life. In hopes of attaining his heart’s desire, has Dick instead unleashed a terror the likes of which the world has never seen? Meanwhile, back in Gotham City, Alfred and a recuperating Robin are at the mercy of someone both fearsome and familiar...
