    Shouldn’t the reference about the Club of Heroes in Year 12 say originally told in “The Black Glove”?

    • A minor editing quibble, but let me do my best to explain. Adding in “originally told” information is a relatively new concept for this website, something I’m trying for the current reboot timeline. Seems to make sense since so much material is pure retroactive referencing—even stuff that literally was published a year ago.

      In regard to “The Black Glove,” that title was only a trade paperback title. There was no arc that was titled “The Black Glove.” It was a bunch of Grant Morrison issues linked together. Because this site doesn’t really deal with trades as such, I am not using the title “The Black Glove.” However, you make a good point and I will add in the original issue numbers. Thanks for brining it to my attention.

      In regard to this portion of Morrison’s arc, I’m sure it is in-continuity since it ties into so much of Batman’s other canonical mythos, but technically there hasn’t been a direct reference to it yet in the “New Age”/”Rebirth”/”post-Superman Reborn” era. Keep your eyes peeled.

        That reasoning makes perfect sense and I suspected the trade title situation. Thanks for responding so quickly and adding the issue numbers. I like the “originally told in”s since they provide a sort of reading order even though stories like Knightfall happened a lot differently.

    It seems like maybe DC is slowly making most of Batman: Year One as possible canon piece by piece.

    • Ha, sure seems like it, right? Actually, this speaks to the current climate of superhero comics. We are in a heavy retro-themed “Easter Egg Hunt Era,” especially with DC Comics. More than ever, writers are dropping in winks and nods at trivial ephemera from comic books (and TV) of yesteryear. The references are flying fast and furious, getting sprinkled like confetti across the entire line of titles. The reference to Arnold Flass in Miller’s “Year One” is but one example of many. Jurgens, Tynion, Snyder, and Orlando LOVE their Easter Eggs. There are so many lately, they are getting hard to spot/figure out without the aid of annotations or an encyclopedic knowledge of comic book continuity. (Thankfully, most of these references aren’t the focal point of the stories.)

      Don’t get me wrong, I love Easter Egg hunting too; I just hope that comics don’t devolve into nothing more than Easter Egg hunting.

    “–Batman Vol. 3 Annual #1 Part 1 Intro” That issue is about Bruce’s dog Ace. Catwoman and mouse issue (by Lee Weeks) is in Annual #2.

    Its so confusing! In this continuity is year one his origin or is it still
    zero year?

    • It’s a mix. Here’s what’s been canonized in the New Age (Rebirth Era)—and in this order, basically the “New Age Year Zero”…

      -From Miller’s “Year One”: Bruce returns home from training abroad, kicks trees, plans his war on crime.
      -From Miller’s “Year One”: Bruce has first fight with Selina and Holly in the East End.
      -From Miller’s “Year One”: Batman works with Harvey Dent, helping him bust Arnold Flass.
      -From Snyder’s “Zero Year”: Batman busts Red Hood; Philip Kane dies; Riddler debuts, takes over Gotham for weeks while Batman remains in coma; and Thomas family helps Batman, who returns and helps Gordon defeat Riddler.
