Stack Rundown, 07/26/2014

For those of us not at SDCC, let's have our own convention by reading what I thought about books this week... Totally comparable... :(

Batman Beyond Saturdays, 07/26/2014

The Phantasm is back, and out for blood.

SPOILERS: Batman #33

Zero Year. The finale.

SPOILERS: Batman and Robin #33

The Justice League thinks they're going to stop Bruce from getting Damian back... aw, that's cute.

SPOILERS: Batman Eternal #16

Deacon Blackfire is back, and for some reason he finds Gotham a more suitable place than Hell.

Batman Beyond Saturdays, 07/26/2014

This week on Batman Beyond 2.0, we get a bit of follow up to everybody's favorite feel-good story, "The Return of the Joker." Hooray!

Stack Rundown, 07/26/2014

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!

Anarky to New-Fifty-Debut in Detective Comics

NOTE: Old picture, bro
GET IT!? New-Fifty-Debut! Because he's debuting in the New 52 and "52" sort of sounds like "fifty-debut!' HAHAHA...

God damn it, god damn it me...

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.

Harley Quinn #8 Preview

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.

Guillem March's Detective Comics Annual #3 Cover

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.

Panels of the Week, 07/24/2014

What's this? A couple surprise entries this week? Shocking!

Looking Forward: July 30th, 2014

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?
So yeah, might be later than usual, but posts will come at some point next Wednesday, most likely all at once! If Monday rolls around and there's still stuff like previews to be posted, I might need some people pointing them out to me on Twitter so I know where to go when I do have internet... That or any relevant news, really. But given that it's post-SDCC, I don't expect much of that. GROUP EFFORT, guys.

In the meantime, you got trades, shirts, or whatever you want to buy online? Well, why not go through the TFAW or Super Hero Stuff affiliate banners I got up on the site? Turn off adblocker and support Gotham Spoilers, it's the cool thing to do! All you got to do is click on those banners, and buy stuff within the same browsing session and blammo, you get stuff, I get support. Win/win.

SPOILERS: Batman #33

It's the finale of Zero Year, Batman vs. the Riddler, and guess what! Batman wins. Go figure! Well, it's been a long time coming, but let's put Zero Year to bed.

SPOILERS: Batman and Robin #33

You know what my favorite Batman is? The Batman that gives a big middle finger to the Justice League, and does what he wants... Safe to say, that's pretty much ALL this issue is.

SPOILERS: Batman Eternal #16

More light (metaphorically speaking) is shed on just what's happening beneath Arkham Asylum, none of it good, I wonder what could happen? the way, Arkham Manor #1 coming this fall! Heyooo!
