"Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" is a Batman story published in two parts, in the "final" issues of the series and , released in February and April 2009, respectively. Written by Neil Gaiman, pencilled by Andy Kubert, and inked by Scott Williams, the story is purported to be the "last" Batman story in the wake of severe psychological trauma that Batman endures within the "Batman R.I.P." story, and his ultimate fate in "Final Crisis". The story's title is a reference to the backup stories published in from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s (which revisited various long-unused Golden Age and Silver Age characters; these stories were all titled "Whatever Happened to (x)?"). The Batman presented in the story is not necessarily the one from current DC Universe continuity but rather an indeterminate amalgamation that pays homage to the entirety of the character's 70-year history. Neil Gaiman, who jumped at the chance to script this story, and artist Andy Kubert who, through his marvelous evocative artwork that pays tribute to the greatest artists to ever work on the Dark Knight, have lovingly crafted a subtle, theoretical look at post-Batman Gotham that, albeit reminiscent of certain previous DC publications, is nonetheless superlative for its wonderfully entertaining and totally engrossing homage to The Caped Crusader's life and times. Amazing and incredible, and imho stands alongside Alan Moore's "last" Superman story "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?".
