Batman Group January 2015 Solicitations

The Joker isn't the only one who is back in Gotham come January.

Stack Rundown, 10/18/2014

Giant nazi Cthulhu monsters, android viruses, and burning orphanages... An average week in comics, if you ask me.

SPOILERS: Batman and Robin #35

Asses of Apokolips, prepare to be kicked by Batman.

SPOILERS: Batman Eternal #28

Bodies are dropping and Catwoman is sharpening her claws.

Stack Rundown, 10/11/2014

Lots of indie stuff to read this week, so appropriately enough, I've only got one of these books to read next week.

Batman Group January 2015 Solicitations


Happy New Year! In terms of solicits, at least. No major changes in the Batman books to take note of, other than Jason Masters filling in on Batwoman for the month.

SPOILERS: The New Robin Is...


Reveal after the jump!

Batman Eternal #33 Cover


I think one of the best parts about Batman Eternal has been the line up of cover artists they've got, AND OH HEY, speaking of which, take a look at Rafael Albuquerque's cover for #33.

Still hoping with get a month of Jenny Frison covers given she and Tim Seeley work in the same studio. Her covers for Revival and a bunch of Dynamite books have been stunning, so I need to see some Bat stuff drawn by her.

Be Warned: Robin Spoilers Possibly Coming Today


It's that time of the month again... Er. Solicit time, that is. January 2015 solicitations for DC are bound to start coming out very soon, and do you know what that means? The first issue of Batman and Robin post-Robin Rises will be amongst them. Now, I figured DC may not want to spoil the outcome of the story, and would pull an Endgame sort of deal by being really vague while not revealing the real covers.

Perhaps not.

Just minutes ago, Peter Tomasi sent this tweet out:


Given today is solicitation day, it seems like DC may not wait and instead, do the sort of shitty thing of spoiling the results ahead of time, which is par for the course with both them and Marvel lately.

Regardless, the answers are probably coming in the solicits, so if you want to avoid those spoilers... which would be odd since you visit a site called Gotham Spoilers, you may want to not be on the internet from about now until mid-January.

If I've got the time later, I'll definitely be making a post about whatever we learn today.

Arkham Manor #1 Preview


Takes place after Batman Eternal #30? Well, that was timed poorly, especially considering there's another Wednesday left in October, the same one #30 comes out. Oh well, this looks awesome... Not sure what that line about Bruce losing the fortune was about, but maybe it was just Hady being a dick.

Nerdist has got the preview, but their links are broken, so I went ahead and fixed them for you all.

Batman Eternal #29 Preview


This is definitely a case of the art absolutely nailing the tone. Simon Coleby was a real good choice for this issue, that's for sure.

Batman Beyond Saturdays, 10/18/2014


So, seems like I forgot to do this post for a good portion of the day. WHOOPS.

Stack Rundown, 10/18/2014


Pretty short stack for me this week, especially compared to last. Some Axis stuff, one Image book, and the new Lex Luthor book is pretty cool... Oh wait, that's just Justice League. Could have fooled me.

Catwoman #35 Preview


Really excited for this, but what concerns me is how little time there's been between Selina getting to this point in Eternal and this first issue of the new direction. Nothing substantial has been setup in Eternal, so this book and where it goes seems to be a pretty blank slate, which can be both a blessing and a curse. I guess we'll find out next week, I've got high hopes.
