And the mother of year award goes to... literally anyone but Lady Shiva
Lots of style, just need a little more easily discernible substance for my tastes.
I'm not sure exactly why most of this issue happens, but it sure is cool.

Okay, so we're changing things up here. Stack Rundown: Dead. I don't want to write something about every single issue I read in a week. I don't got time for that anymore, more often than not, I don't have much unique to say about a particular issue that differentiates it from the previous in the series, and it just ends up making me rush through comics so I have everything read by Sunday morning.
So instead, I'm going to replace Rundown with Highlights, which will see me only highlight the issues of the week I actually feel like I have something to say, or they caught my attention for a particular reason. This won't be weekly, because I can't guarantee every week will feature an issue or two that catches my attention in a particular way. So it's more of a "whenever the hell I feel like it" sort of schedule, which suits me pretty well at this point.

Dark Days arrive, but screw that, because Zatanna is in Detective Comics, and that's Paul Dini levels of nostalgia awesome.
Here I was thinking I was going to open this by referencing the Perturbator album in some form, only to remember that's called "Dangerous Days," so there goes that pull.
Metal this is not, but it seems we've got a prelude to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's now-not-so-summer event, which I've been suppressing my excitement for going on 7 months now? Yeah. Didn't know this was coming, but nevertheless, Scott Snyder, James Tynion, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita JR have "The Forge" and "The Cast" one shots coming in June and July that set the stage for events to come... boy you sure do forge and cast metal, don't you?
You can read more about it at DC's site, hell, you've probably already read enough about it while I was at work, but nevertheless, this all sounds cool... and if what half the shit I've heard about the probably-still-called Metal remains true (given the time that's past), this could be one awesome event, unlike those we've seen before.
On top of that, James Tynion has confirmed that this is what the final scene of Detective Comics #950 was about, and on top of that, Tim Seeley of Nightwing and Steve Orlando of Justice League of America have chimed in too.

No more Batgirl! I think that book is bad. Not gonna read it anymore.
- Detective Comics #953: There seems to be a lot of issues of this book that has Batman's team giving him some shit on the cover.
- Mother Panic #5: Surprised this is coming out so soon, almost missed it.
Solicitations next week. Seems like the next Batman arc might have to do with Riddler and potentially Joker?
