If we've learned anything from Paul Cornell and Scott McDaniel's Batman and Robin issues, it's that The Absence isn't quite all there up in her noggin, and I'm not just talking about the giant hole in her head. The lady's scary-crazy. You might've also learned just how well Paul Cornell can write a cool villain -- if you're a Batman fan who hasn't yet checked out his killer Lex Luthor stories occurring in ACTION COMICS, you're missing out. BATMAN ROBIN #19 wraps up the three-part "The Sum of Her Parts" story and is on sale next week. Pete Tomasi and Patrick Gleason will be taking the Batman and Robin reigns with issue #20.
