Preview: Batman #49

Writer: Scott Snyder

Penciller: Yanick Paquette

Looks like we’re at the end of the “Superheavy” arc and Brucey-boy is getting back to his roots. Also, Greg Capullo is not at the reins of the pencils this week, instead we have Mr. Yanick Paquette and his clean and exact pencils are welcome. (Don’t get me wrong, I still love Capullo’s art, but I like Paquette’s work so far.) For the Capullo loyalists, he’ll be back again for a couple more issues before his hiatus.

Annnd… we’re cut off right before the juicy part. It seems that Bruce is totally aware of his past and Alfred seems determined to protect it. Almost to the point of breaking his usual calm visage.

Here’s the synopsis:
