Pretty light week comparatively speaking. There were a few new entries and my trying out some stuff, but if it weren't for those, this would have been a five book post with my regular series. Not like I'm complaining, I finished writing this on Thursday, so I enjoyed that.

Ooooh yeeeeah! Hot late night preview action coming your way. Make sure the kids are asleep!
This'll be Miguel Sepulveda's first issue, and his art is pretty alright by me. Can vary from page to page, but I'm interested in seeing what he brings to the title.

Today saw the release of Legends of the Dark Knight #50, written by Jim Zub and illustrated by Neil Googe, concluding their "Dr. Quinn's Diagnosis" story. Last week I wrote a bit about the first chapter, and now I'll finish up my thoughts, with a little summary of this chapter and a review of the story itself.
If you missed the news, Batman, Incorporated #11 will be an issue written by Chris Burnham, and illustrated by Jorge Lucas starring Mr. Unknown, with his new (very manga inspired) costume, which we get a pretty good look at on this cover.

It is the 16th of May, 2013, and I am posting some of my favorite panels from yesterday's Bat issues, these are facts. Deal with it!
Seems like Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo have a round of interviews just going up this morning, and with them come a few pages from Greg Capullo and Danny Miki, with young Bruce and the Red Hood gang.
As for the interviews? Eh. I'm trying not to read them. I want to go in blind as much as possible as this one.
Next is the last week of normal comics for the month, then we got some annuals to fill out the 5th Wednesday.
- Batman, Incorporated #11: Things are getting down to the wire, but we're just going to have to wait for the conclusion as Chris Burnham writes us an issue where we return to Japan in a visit with Mr. Unknown.
- Talon #8: Calvin is DEEEEEEAD. Now he's a true Talon, so who knows what that'll actually mean for him. Expect him to come across the Birds of Prey at the end, though.
- Batman - The Dark Knight #20: Mad Hatter has the hots for Batman's girlfriends, and Bruce is gonna be all "AH, HELLZ NO" and kick his ass. Just watch.
Panels of the week coming up, and I'll have a post about the finale of Jim Zub's Legends of the Dark Knight in a bit.

Having come back to his newly sublet apartment, Dick finds out that the Joey he's renting it from, isn't exactly out of town, nor is she a he, as he soon finds a woman standing over him with a baseball bat. Dick's new roommate Mike walks in and calms Joey down, who eases up after Mike offers Dick his bed, as he is leaving for work, and figures they'll sort it all out later... Elsewhere, the police find that guy Prankster left with a wolf, missing one arm. Fun!
Well, Jason still doesn't have his memories, and Roy is still pretty pissed about that, demanding that S'aru give Jason his memories back. S'aru asks Roy and Kori to see it from Jason's perspective, showing them both just how shitty Jason's life was, but Roy isn't convinced, bringing up the fact that the three of them had pretty good times, so if Jason just wanted the bad parts gone, why doesn't he remember his friends... Well, about that...
