Looking Forward: June 28th, 2017


Late on this post. When I went to make that graphic the first time, the DPI was something real stupid in Photoshop, so I couldn't see any of the text I typed in my normal font size, so I said "fuck this" and went to do something else... for two days. Whoops?
  • Detective Comics #959: Zatanna!
Maximum effort. Good job, me.

Batman Group September 2017 Solicitations


Biggish Month. Metal apparently double ships? Wonder if anyone told Greg Capullo? We're getting the October solicit too for some reason? Then there's a whole bunch of Metal One-shots starting that month, which I'm not sure how I'm going to cover, as I'm not in the business of giving myself more work here anymore. Though I probably will include the Suicide Squad and Teen Titans issues that crossover with Nightwing. We'll see!

Batwoman #4 Preview


Can confirm that the lady up there knows Kate Kane's name. Spoilers.

All-Star Batman "Ends," gets Reformatted


The language behind All-Star Batman and its status as an on-going, a mini series, or something in between has been muddy at best, all the way from when it was first announced, continuing to today. Recently there was some word that this current arc was the final arc... but there was that long promised Sean Murphy story, and I myself heard there was to be more later, so Snyder came out and said there would be more All-Star and there was some misinterpretations had... but now there won't but, but there still kind of will be. Confused? Great.

So, here's the rundown. All-Star Batman is indeed ending with issue #14 in September. That said, Scott Snyder is still going to be continuing All-Star Batman (name pending, I guess) with the various artists he's lined up to work with including Sean Murphy, Paul Pope, Lee Bermejo and Afua Richardson, but instead of the monthly format, DC is going to publish the book in a prestige format, with a release schedule that hasn't exactly been outlined... I'm going to guess "when they're ready" sort of like Dark Knight III, but hopefully there's some more consistency between issues. With the new format will come bigger issues (dimensions) with better paper quality, and me being a digital reader, all that means dick to me other than "well that's probably how they justify keeping it at $4.99 minimum with no back-up." But what are you going to do?

I'll be interested to hear more about where this goes. SDCC is right around the corner, I bet we'll hear more around then.
