Batman Takes Aim at Osama

Batman goes after Osama bin Laden
At the WonderCon 2006 comic-book convention in San Francisco last weekend, legendary comics writer and artist Frank Miller revealed that Batman would hunt down bin Laden and al Qaeda in his next DC Comics graphic novel.

In "Holy Terror, Batman!" the Caped Crusader goes after the terror leader and his organization after Gotham City is attacked by terrorists. Though the graphic novel's title is a take on Robin the Boy Wonder's catchphrase, Miller said there was nothing campy about the story.

Sketchy. Very sketchy.
While this does hearken back to olden days as mentioned in the article, I think, ultimately, it over simplifies the world.
Moreso, I seriously doubt it will it will make a very good comic.
Oh, and you think the Danish cartoon thing was out of hand?
