Looking Forward: March 4th, 2015


I knew there was one book that got pushed back from this week, Harley. I gladly took the less amount of work this week though.
  • Batman Eternal #48: I don't know, Penguin is back in control? ...I sure hope things just don't go back to regular after 52 damn issues.
  • Grayson #8: Cover features Dick punching Minos in the face, hopefully we get some big revelations.
  • Detective Comics #40: MAN, I hope this book gets better after Convergence. I feel like I have to read Detective, but man the stories in it are BORING.
  • Harley Quinn #15: Harley goes EVEN MORE CRAZY.

Does Scott Snyder hate Alfred? An Investigation


It has long been thought that Batman writer Scott Snyder thinks horses are assholes and goes out of his way whenever possible to have terrible things happen to them within the pages of his comics, but is it possible that one Alfred Pennyworth is above horses on Scott Snyder's personal shit list?

Gotham Spoilers investigates.

Barbara Gordon's Secret Origin


Secret Origins #10 came out today, featuring the "secret origin" of Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl... duh. Now, there have been Bat characters featured in this series before, and I've read the stories, but never felt a need to comment on them because they were all pretty standard stuff, not providing anything new to the current events of the character... But Batgirl's story in this issue changes that, and it's definitely worth talking about.

There's been a lot of incorrect information about this issue floating about as well, along with some unnecessary outrage, because the internet... So with those things in mind, I'm not doing a full on spoiler post or anything, but I'm still going to talk about how this story relates to the current arc as there's some pretty important stuff (that may be covered in #40 regardless) to be had.

SPOILERS: Batman #39


Dear Scott Snyder, why do you hate Alfred so much? I mean, we all thought it was the horses, but it's become abundantly clear who the real #1 on your "fuck that guy" list is.

SPOILERS: Batman Eternal #47


Imagine that, Batman leaves Gotham city on an errand, and when he comes back, the whole place is literally in flames. Whoops?

SPOILERS: Gotham Academy #5


So what does a group of juvenile delinquents do when they're told not to go into the North Hall? They go into the god damn North Hall again. KIDS!

SPOILERS: Arkham Manor #5


This issue left me saying "So wait, there's another issue left?" Not necessarily a great sign.

SPOILERS: Catwoman #39


Well, that was certainly unexpected... What is "that" you ask? Well, if you read this issue, you know exactly what I'm talking about and now let's just stop being vague because I'm running on and this is going nowhere so I'm just gonna get to the regular post now okay bye.

SPOILERS: Gotham by Midnight #4


I've been waiting for this book to give me a reason why it was set in Gotham (outside of obvious marketing benefits) and sure enough, this issue does just that, renewing my faith in it a bit.
