SPOILERS: Nightwing #25

Nightwing stories end up in two categories: 1. Dick has a new girlfriend or 2. Oh no, they broke up!

SPOILERS: Dark Days: The Casting #1

Oh don't mind me, just a retcon to the entire fabric of the DC Universe passing through.

SPOILERS: Detective Comics #960

If you thought you'd avoid Metal prelude stuff, boy you're wrong!

Mass murder fueled civil wars are better with friends.

Batman: The Signal Announced at SDCC


Worst kept secret for a few months now is that Duke Thomas was going to get his own book. Hell, I didn't even bother teasing it because Snyder was out there saying it flat out.

Nevertheless, it was announced today at SDCC. Duke's codename has finally been chosen, and it's The Signal, not Lark, thank god. DC writers workshop alumni Tony Patrick will be writing it, with Scott Snyder assisting. No artist is attached as of yet.

Not sure what to think yet. There's still a good deal to be explained about Duke and the way he fits into everything, but I'll check it out. I do think that Batman: The Signal is kind of a clunky name, especially when it's not Batman's book, or so you'd think.

Expect daylight.

Arkham Asylum 2 Announced at SDCC


Look, I never have high expectations for DC SDCC announcements. The con is just so packed with anything but comics trying to make big announcements, it really has become where they announce an expected thing or two, then more on... I'm expecting an Outsiders or something book from Jeff Lemire and Ivan Reis for Dark Matter then word on this not exactly monthly thing All-Star Batman is turning into with other titles in the same style.

Then they just announced Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham are creating Arkham Asylum 2, set in the Damian Wayne #666 future.

Fuck.

SPOILERS: Batman #27


Leave it to the guy who wrote the Vision, and made it one of the best books in recent history, to make Kite Man an interesting character. Kite Man.

SPOILERS: Nightwing #25


Things don't go well in Dick's life... I'm sure you could figure them out if you've read the other issues, but hey... he gets a job this time!

Nightwing #25 Preview


I usually just take a cropped screenshot of something and link to the site to direct traffic to where it should go... but see, Comicbook.com uses an ad-blocker blocker, fine whatever, I'll turn it off for two seconds because I'm totally going to click on ads now, right... Yeah, fuck this garbage. Just hit the jump for all the images, I'll save you the trouble from this nonsense.

Looking Forward: July 19th, 2017


Solicitations next week, as well as SDCC, and I feel like DC might have some stuff going for them around the convention... but they'll probably announce it all beforehand.
  • Batman #27: I think this is a Clay Mann issue for Kite-Man (Hell yeah!)
  • Nightwing #25: Bigger issue for the #25... more pages to break up with your girlfriend with!
  • Batwoman #5: I didn't come out of the last arc too enthused, so I may skip over the epilogue next week.
That's about it... also, Azrael is getting his Bat suit back, I'm sure we've all seen that by now.
