Punked by Neil Gaiman? DC? Or both?
Neil Gaiman says that this Andy Kubert image, shown as the cover of the forthcoming release of the "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" hardcover (due in July 2009), is NOT the real cover image for either volume of his 2-issue mini-series, which follows Grant Morrison's current Batman: R.I.P. storyline.
