I can't answer everything - but this might help -

The assassins are all newly created except for Merlyn and Hook. Fabian Nicieza is writing a story for I forget which title and will show more about these assassins.

The binoculars angle is correct. We're looking through the lens, seeing what Batman's seeing. It would only be reversed if we were looking at the reflection from in front of him, but we're not, we're 'him'.

And the swoop - yes - over the top. But this is Batman. He can do it no problemo.

Batman dies. It was supposed to be interpreted that the monks placed him in the fountain to save him. Sensei fell in and died because he wasn't pure. Ra's took over a monk's body before dying himself.

I haven't seen these boards in ages. Figured I'd drop in and say hi to you guys.

Any SPOILERS names?

D'oh! Batman's eyes are just far enough, for readers, from the low tech display to see the reverse prism principle thingamajig. http://www.binocularsetc.com/binocularfacts.html
Speaking of eyes, cringed at the NEAT detail of the shattered cowl eyeprotectors, hopin' he didn't get any shards in his!

In the larger version good cover image for 674 here:
http://images.comicbookresources.com/solicits/dccomics/200802/superman_batman/BM-Cv674_solicit.jpg
does the belt buckle reflection(more details!) indicate a different shadowed figure in the room from the different angled shadow on the wall.

Despite the distraction of the arm (interesting to see who is worthy of Batman covering with his cape) this smaller 473 cover looks nice too:


Look forward to you interpretation of Tiger Moth too.
