Stephanie Brow! Remember her? She hasn't been in an issue in awhile, so here's an issue that's 80% Spoiler!
With the annuals, specials and one-shots... man, December is going to be a jam-packed Gotham month.
The Royal Flush Gang is back in the picture just as the former Ten is struggling to get her life together.

Is it weird that the first thing I go to notice is that the Elephant guy from Batman and Robin Annual #2 is here... Thanks for picking up weird continuity bits Sholly Fisch, I appreciate stuff like that!

Last week of Futures End Month! Hooray! Regular comics are coming back... only to go away in April and May again... Then they'll come back... then go away in September 2015. Fuuuuuck.
- Batman Eternal #25: HUSH! But this week's issue's last page said something about it being an issue about Julia Pennyworth.
- Harley Quinn: Futures End #1: Harley's getting married to the Joker! Where's this going to fit into continuity? Probably no where! But who cares?! It'll probably be fun.
- Catwoman: Futures End #1: Catmask? I don't know. This will probably be dumbish, but hey, let's just read this out of spite of what Catwoman had been up until now.

True story, I was going to include Batwoman this week, but then I remembered I think randomly turning characters into vampires is super lame and only a move that's made when no one actually has any idea what to do with a "spooOooOOooky" looking character... So screw that noise... also I'm dropping the main series too, so there's that. Bye Kate... Call me when DC decides to fix you. Now, on with the show.

Hey look! It's Stephanie. Long time no see. With Catwoman coming back last week, and Steph this week, who wants to bet we see Harper again soon? I guess I could look at a solicit, but even I don't tell myself what to do! Suck on that, me!

DECEMBER! Last month of the year. No real creator changes to close out the year, but it is a five week month, so you know what that means? Annuals! Batman gets Annual #3, which acts as the one (and probably only) tie-in for Endgame, it'll be written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Roge Antonio, while Grayson gets its first annual, followed by Red Hood and the Outlaws and Catwoman's second annuals. Not to be left out, there will be a Harley Quinn Holiday Special which is something I said DC should way back in July, so thanks for listening! Rounding out the things of note, Secret Origins #8 will start Dick Grayson in one its chapters. Confused? Sure you are, because there was already a SO story for Dick, but this time around, it'll be acting as a bridge filling in the gap between Nightwing #30 and Grayson #1, as confirmed by writer Tim Seeley.
So, with all that out of the way, let's get to some solicitations!
Comic Vine's got the first look at Clay Mann's new Batman Eternal cover, in all it's old Batgirl costume glory. Given that preview that leaked out today, and a few solid months of pre-Burnside Batgirl in Eternal, the tonal disconnect between the two characters is gonnna be weeeeeeird.
Also, I mentioned this on twitter once, but might as well point out this dumb thing here... Notice Clay Mann's signature? It just says "Man." Where's the other n?! This bothers me to a stupid degree.

Bleeding Cool got their hands on a 10 page preview of Batgirl #35 that DC has sent to retailers, so naturally, they put it up online. Personally, I'm not reading it because it's quite literally half the comic, and I've even stopped reading 4 page previews for the sake of going in on Wednesday fresh. But just scanning through the art, I've got to say that Babs Tarr and Cameron Stewart make one hell of a team. I am bummed about one thing though... I thought Jordie Bellaire was supposed to be the colorist. Not that the colors look bad (they're great, actually) but I was just excited to see her on a regular DC project, as she's one of the best out there currently.
EDIT: If you're following Cameron Stewart on Twitter, you probably know that he's not that pleased with BC leaking the preview. The big issue seems to be that it's not final. Dialogue, text, and art is not all final, so if you choose to read it, know that going in.

Slim week, but hey there, it's a new Grant Morrison book! Did you know that was happening? I bet not! Because I bet you didn't even know the publisher it is from existed, just like me! Oh well, Morrison! Comics! That's good!
