Secret “Batman Incorporated” Storyline Leaks Via Twitter

A photo of three “Batman: Incorporated” #8 covers posted on Twittter earlier today

Following the piracy of in advance of its release date earlier this week, DC Comics has another leak on its hands. A photo of variant covers for “Batman, Incorporated” #8 has surfaced, nearly two weeks prior to the comic’s February 27 release date. The photo shows three variant covers homaging Morrison’s “Batman: R.I.P.,” with Damien Wayne’s Robin standing in for his father, the Dark Knight. Additionally, the letters “R.I.P.” appear at the bottom, using Robin’s “R” icon, revealing a major spoiler for Morrison’s upcoming “Batman, Incorporated” arc, which has been kept under tight wraps by DC. Damien’s death as the focus of Morrison’s newest arc has been a popular theory on Internet message boards, as Damien is nowhere to be found on the covers for May’s Batman-related issues, even on the cover of “Batman and Robin” #19.

The photo comes from the Twitter account of retailer Al Mega, who posted an auction on eBay for “Amazing Spider-Man” #700 weeks before its scheduled release date. Mega’s Twitter feed indicates he has access to advance copies of DC’s books — on February 8, he posted a photo of a number of issues not set to release until February 20 including “Justice League of America” #1, “Justice League” #17, “Green Lantern: New Guardians” #17 and more.

When approached by CBR News about the leak, DC representatives replied, “No comment.”
