For a month, comic book-wise at least, all Bat-related issues are shelved to reintroduce the return of The 'Bat'Man...Bruce Wayne in the DC Universe. The cliffsnotes are as follows - for about over a year or so now, Bruce Wayne was believed to be dead by everyone who knew him from the first Robin, then-Nightwing and now (one of 2) Batman Dick Grayson, to the Man of Steel Superman.

Only one person believed that he was still alive, and for almost a year - but only a few months DCUwise - he had alienated himself from his family and friends to find evidence to support his theory: Tim Drake, former Robin and now donning the identity of Red Robin. Tim discovered that Bruce wasn't only alive, but lost in time. Eventually the others came around to that same realization and Tim reconciled with his family before informing them of his findings.

The 6-issue miniseries titled The Return of Bruce Wayne hasn't been completed yet, issue 5 having only come out today, but it chronicles the Dark Knight's journey through time as he attempts to reclaim his memories of who he is.

As for the October-related month...

When I was younger and first watched Batman Beyond: Return of The Joker, after finding out what happened to Tim Drake I always wondered what happened to Dick Grayson in the DCAU world. It's common knowledge what tragedy befell Tim - captured and tortured by The Joker for a few weeks until he eventually revealed all of Batman's secrets, changed into a twisted kid version of the Clown Prince himself - known to most as Joker Jr. - who ends up being loyal to Bruce in the end and is the one who kills the Joker; he spent a year with Leslie Thompkins until he was back to himself, fired from his Robin role by Bruce as he blamed himself for what happened causing Tim to strike out on his own...and ultimately being taken over by The Joker, the microchip embedded on his neck which led to a fantastic showdown with Terry McGinnis, etc.

Until now, no one exactly knew what tragedy befell Dick Grayson. And it wasn't until the recent 6-issue mini-series - which will become an ongoing in the next few months, not surprisingly - that we find out exactly what happened to Batman's first partner...
