Batman Annual #2 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)
Meh. Snyder drags out this story way too long, with the Anchoress just continually repeating her, "This was a sanctuary!" line over and over again. When she manages to escape the orderlies and re-engage Batman on the roof, it's pretty clear that Snyder was really just vamping for time, since this second battle doesn't break any new ground. The only thing interesting that could come from this story is Eric Border, who Snyder seems to imply might have a future in the DCnU. To add to my annoyance, DC pretty shamelessly advertises this issue as connected to "Zero Year," which it is for all of one of its 38 pages, simply to get you to fork over the $4.99. My advice? Don't.
