DC Comics wiped away all their old continuity three years ago and replaced it with a fresh start for everyone. Some of the notable stories remain part of the backstory for Batman, but mostly things have pushed forward in a new direction. As part of this writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo launched – and are still writing – the central Batman book.
Before Morrison, Batman was in the hands of various crime maestros including Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka. And those two (along with an assortment of various other artists and writers like Alex Maleev, Devin Grayson and more) were involved in a decent jump-on storyline called ‘No Man’s Land’. Massive in scope and scale, and successful around 60% of the time, this storyline ropes Gotham off from the rest of the world following an earthquake.
