Missing: My pull. Last seen: March 2015. Reward if found: I get to read a lot of comics again.

Coming in June: Grayson

Grayson's got a new boss, who he might have a inappropriate relationship with. I wonder what Spyral HR is like?

Coming in June: Robin: Son of Batman

Look, all I'm saying is a big Bat monster is no Bat-Cow, that's all.

Coming in June: Catwoman

If you were wondering, yes indeed... Catwoman is Catwoman.

Coming in June: Gotham Academy

Incase you were missing out, welcome to Gotham Academy, the place irresponsible parents send their kids for school. I MEAN IT'S GOTHAM!

Two! Only two books to read this week. I think that's by far the fewest comics I've had to read in any given week in a long, long time. Damn it Convergence and Secret Wars... you ruin everything. Well, not everything... but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be left reading only Howard the Duck and maybe whatever Rick Remender writes for Marvel, because other than that, I just don't see the point in investing the time in Marvel comics anymore. YOU HERE THERE MICKEY!?

Coming in June: Grayson

Spyral has a new boss and Grayson's got a new partner... and poor Hal Jordan.

Coming in June: Robin: Son of Batman

Damian went from a cow, dog and cat as his animal pals, to a giant were-bat beast who goes through Man-Bat ninjas like they're kibble. Upgrade?

Coming in June: Catwoman

Catwoman is acting more like Catwoman (as in, she's putting on the suit) and that's perfectly fine by me!

Coming in June: Gotham Academy

It may be the summer, but the students at Gotham Academy are still in session... because if they were let out of the school, I don't think anything good would happen. "Mr. Zsasz eh?! Well how do you like some M80s, huh!?"


...WELL NOW, what's coming from this book in June?

Batman Group August 2015 Solicitations

Welcome to Post-FHIZ got a full time job because you jerks don't buy enough stuff from my ads and also there were like three accidents on the road I take home plus I had to pick up the Witcher and fuck why am I doing this there's Witcher to play Gotham Spoilers... Where posts come pretty late... still trying to figure out what to do about this when real books start up again. Might just wake up early and write them up before work. We'll see!

What's new this month!? Well, because DC can't go too long without some extra Harley in their lives, we got a Harley Quinn road trip special with Catwoman and Poison Ivy... so fuck yeah. There's another new artist on We Are Robin with Rob Haynes, and I remain confused as to what the actual art situation is on that book. Fernando Blanco is still drawing Detective Comics... I mean, I like Blanco, but uuuuuh... No one is going to sit here and tell me Manapul's art wasn't a big part of the draw of that series. And that's it!

Man, I can't wait until DC's real books come back. Down with Convergence!

As it still turns out, having a full time job during the week and then having to take care of a crazy puppy by yourself over the weekend, isn't all that helpful in terms of having time to read comics... as you may tell by me posting this sometime past 7pm here on the East coast... annnnnnnd the Witcher 3 comes out next week, so a general "god damn it" to everything.

Coming in June: Gotham by Midnight

What's coming in June from Gotham by Midnight? Well, by the looks of this story, pretty much more of the same, this time with added GorBat.

Turns out having a new full-time job isn't the best for reading comics. Read basically everything either last night or this morning, which worked fine for five books, but when it gets to one of those weeks where I've got a lot to read, I don't knoooooow.

Also, I guess I'll give my quick thoughts on each of those DC previews that were released.

Coming in June: Detective Comics

I haven't been too hot on this current run of Detective Comics for a few key reasons, and with the Batman status quo change, I was a bit concerned about how this book was going to differentiate itself and stand out (one of its problems) when both it and Batman would be telling stories about the GCPD and the new Batman. Well, I know that I should be cautiously optimistic, but there's a glimmer of hope within these 8 pages.
