I'm sitting here, it's just about 1am when I'm getting this post together, and I was about to complain about it taking so long for me to pick images for this post, and then I realized I totally left Forever Evil #6 out of it. If I was to write that issue up now, it would fuck up the image order I picked, given I give every other blurb an image to break up the wall of text... So nope, not going to do that. I wrote about Forever Evil #6 here (spoilers, of course) and gave my thoughts on it... but in short, if you believe what it wants you to believe, you need to read more comics. Also, the last page was expected, but interesting twist, and yes, Captain Cold's voice command was pretty great.

Back when the final issue of Batman and Two-Face hit, there was an ending that seemed... pretty clear what happened, but then again, it was off panel... and well... In an interview with Newsarama today, Peter Tomasi confirmed that everything is what it seems, Two-Face put a gun to his head, pulled the trigger, and kablamo, his blood on Gilda's photo... So there's that.
He went on to say that his upcoming arc in Batman and... entitled "The Hunt for Robin" is a "prologue for one of Batman's BIG 75th Anniversary stories this year within the family of Batbooks" which starts in July. Personally... I take this as GIVE ME BACK DAMIAN WAYNE, YOU SONSABITCHES!
...I fucking want Damian back, I'm over him being dead.

Just ending arcs left and right next week.
- Batman #29: The second arc of "Zero Year" comes to an end with a face off between Doctor Death, The Riddler and Batman... Then got some post apocalyptic style stuff to look forward to... But yeah, I'm starting to feel the Zero Year fatigue, especially with the promise of what's to come in Eternal.
- Nightwing #29: Kyle Higgins' time on Nightwing comes to an end, and a little birdy may or may not have told me this is a good one.
- Batgirl #29: Batgirl faces the "vampire" slayer of Gotham, Silver, in the conclusion to this short arc.
So, how about that week in DC comics? A lot of people mad... for no good reason... Seriously people, comics. Just saying.

NOTE: Forever Evil #6 Spoilers, yo.
So today's the day, the final fate of Nightwing in the pages of Forever Evil #6! Will he live? Will he die? Will he be Earth 3's new hero as a Talon based on some rumor that was found on Tumblr after someone said something on 4Chan or something Outlaw Justice I don't know? THE ANSWERS, AND MORE (well, not more) JUST AFTER THE BREAK!
Not long after Mongul's defeat, his son Jochi, and all of Warworld come looking for the warriors who defeated him. Naturally, being the one who flies, Superman goes to confront Jochi, who informs Superman that he is not here to rescue his father, but instead, he would like to meet the the families of the two men who defeated his... Batman and Superman have one day to respond, or Jochi will release Warworld onto Earth.
Batman is under the Scarecrow's control! But how'd this happen? Well, when Bruce and Ivy started fighting off the fear gas influenced Catwoman, Batgirl, and all them, they started to win, so Scarecrow decided to threaten their lives in exchange for Bruce standing down. Bruce agrees, and Scarecrow dosed him with the new toxin... that Bruce already vaccinated himself against, but plays along with Scarecrow and "turns" on Ivy.
Remember how Luke was really angry and kicking the shit out of people last issue? Well, it's gotten worse, and he's starting to lose it, as the GCPD discovers a great deal of criminals tied up to one of Gotham's bridge, as if Batwing was sending a message. Both Bruce and Alfred can't help but take notice of this and Alfred says what they're both thinking, but Bruce doesn't want to hear... what happens if Luke truly suffers a loss, like so many of the Bat-Family has?
Goodish news though... Tam is found by some kids at Amusement Mile's wreckage, bad news is, she's in pretty bad shape.
So the villains attack Bane, all hoped up on venom, and bring him back to Arkham (which he allows). Then the venom begins to have side-effects on everyone, because they can't handle it, where Bane can, and he beats everyone. Penguin shows up, and makes Bane an offer, supplies for the Arkham inmates. Bane agrees, but on two conditions, first, he never sees another one of the Arkham inmates in his city again, and two, he keeps Scarecrow. So then Bane goes full on The Dark Knight Rises with his fluffy coat, strings Scarecrow up as a message, and there you go, he wins Gotham.
