Surprise! More Szymon Kudranski art. Not complaining, just, SURPRISE! Wonder if he also did all of next week's annual as well? If so, man, what a beast, because he also draws Spawn.

So, Brett Booth has been teasing being brought into to do some fill in on another title at DC for the past month or so, and today it was announced that he'd be drawing Justice League of America #4 and #5, which is cool. But time spent on JLA means time spent away from Nightwing, as Booth confirmed #21 would be his last.
This sucks. Not hating on Booth or anything, because the couple of JLA issues is a big gig, but man he worked so well on Nightwing, and after Eddy Barrows unable to put together more than two full issues in a row (outside of the first two) it was nice to know a steady artist who fit the title so well would be handling it. It seems like every time Nightwing gets a little momentum, something happens, plans change, etc. Blah. Oh well. Hopefully whoever they get to replace Booth is good, but I have a feeling who we'll get... and I hope I'm not right.

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.
