Batman R.I.P.

Currently DC is running a story in the Batman family of titles known as Batman R.I.P.
Though it hasn't been revealed exactly what the acronym R.I.P. details in terms of repercussions for the Dark Knight come the finale of this tale, there have been statements to the effect that Batman will not be dying.
In truth, this is just a smoke screen. Because Batman does indeed die. But Batman R.I.P. is merely a misdirection for the real point of occurrence.
You see, Batman is, in all truth, literally resting in pieces.
You just missed it because you were looking in the wrong place. Just about everyone did.
DC pointed one way and then did the deed someplace else entirely. You see, it happened in the pages of a low selling mini-series produced under the DC/Wildstorm banner. A mini-series hardly anyone is reading if projected sales numbers are any indication.
See for yourself.
Pick up the latest issue of DC/Wildstorm: Dreamwar.
You'll see.
The Batman is dead.
Long live the Kherubim.
