For those of us not at SDCC, let's have our own convention by reading what I thought about books this week... Totally comparable... :(
The Justice League thinks they're going to stop Bruce from getting Damian back... aw, that's cute.
Deacon Blackfire is back, and for some reason he finds Gotham a more suitable place than Hell.

A little late this week, sorry about that... Injustice was on sale with Playstation Plus, so for some reason I bought it again and played through the entire story last night, so I was up real late and forgot to write up the last two issues I read. Pretty good game... Cut scenes are pretty laughable though. So, COMICS!

FUCK! Shut it down. Someone reminded me that Anarky was in the Green Lantern Corps Zero Year issue, but I mean, if we're being honest, who remembers that? Did those Zero Year tie ins actually happen? Are we sure that wasn't one big collective dream?
Anyways, while I'm not expecting any bombshells dropped given how we've already had a shitton of DC announcements prior to SDCC, Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul did mention at the first Batman panel that their next arc will feature Anarky. HUZZAH! Announcements, of sorts. Given they're taking two issues off, expect this story to happen in December.
I love this book, just so much dumb, violent fun. Best part? In two weeks we get another issue of Harley, then in another two weeks we get another issue... Why? Because I guess DC thought of double shipping the book in general, but then Conner and Palmiotti went "we can't write that fast!" So oh well, double shipping for one month is better than none.

Holy unsolicited cover, Batman! Yeah, when this issue was solicited, it just used an old Detective Comics cover, and I've been on the search for the real one for the last week, and here it is! Also, SURPRISE! Weather Dell'Edera someone with the last name of Fornes, will be joining Scott Hepburn on the art side of things.
And given hat this issue is supposed to introduce a character we haven't seen in the New 52 yet, chances are it's Calendar Man.
The mythical fifth week of comics! Thanks to the weeklies and Harley Quinn doing so well that it gets multiple releases, I'll actually have something to cover next week... Although I'll be on vacation! Yep. Gonna be out of town with limited internet access, but come Wednesday, I'll find a way to get posts up eventually, just might take forever to download the new releases onto my iPad, but we'll see.
- Batman Eternal #17: Ray Fawkes wraps up this Arkham arc with a potential appearance of the actual Spectre. That could shake things up quite a bit.
- Harley Quinn #8: "Scatapult" is a word that is used in this solicit... Soooo, we're going to get a giant catapult that flings dog shit all over Coney Island, aren't we?
- Detective Comics Annual #3: Apparently this takes place in the past and ties into the Icarus stuff? Also we're going to see the reintroduction of a villain not yet seen in the New 52... I think?
