Another week, another batch of comics to loosely talk about.

SPOILERS: Batman #9

It's saying something when a LoSH character hanging out in Batman is hardly the most WTF moment of an issue.

SPOILERS: Nightwing #7

The circus is a strange place, evident by the endless Nightwing stories that come from it.

Rebirth coming into the new year hot.

Man, I sure wish Damian showed up in Batman books too... you know, where it'd make total and complete sense?

Jesus, done before 10am. Only a handful of extra books to read this week, definitely enjoyed that fact. I'm sure I'll have some 15 book week soon at some point. I'll enjoy this while it lasts.

Looking Forward: October 26th, 2016

Nearly Halloween, time for DC to NOT get spooky because we can't have fun things anymore! Sure, Rebirth is fantastic and all that, but c'mon... Halloween stuff!

  • Detective Comics #943: New storyline and a new haircut for JPV. Off the list he goes!
  • Batgirl #4: Kinda over this travel abroad story.

SPOILERS: Batman #9

See, with the ending of this issue, I'm really fucking glad that these books are twice monthly now, because there's some explaining to do... a lot.

SPOILERS: Nightwing #7

Considering there was just some controversy with Peter David and some comments made about Romani heritage, and this seems to be going deep into Dick's, the timing can't be coincidental! We're all a bunch of jabroni marks who worked ourselves into a shoot, brother!

Batman Group January 2017 Solicitations

New year, new changes to some of the books. Batgirl gets a new artist, but we knew that, Ben Oliver will illustrate the Batwoman Begins issues of Detective, and Batman will be getting some epilogue issues... well one at least, not sure if the second issue of the month will be a larger arc or not.

Another real long week of write ups. I miss the days of the late New 52 when I thought 80% of it was shit and barely read anything. These posts were easy back then.

Mother Panic #1 Preview

I really hope this turns out well, and occupies it's own little corner of Gotham, while utilizing its setting to the fullest. I don't want another Gotham By Midnight where it's technically in Gotham but... it could have been set anywhere.

Looking Forward: October 19th, 2016

Night of the Monster Men is over and we can move on from the pain of no Gundam Batman.
  • Batman #9: Give me a "they know each other" Batman/Catwoman relationship Tom King! Doooo it!
  • Nightwing #7: Hey, that Raptor guy is sketchy, huh?
Also, solicits are next week, I think? Where did the first half of this month go?

SPOILERS: Red Hood and the Outlaws #3

I guess we're doing this for real. Turns out this book is pretty good despite every preconceived notion I had of Scott Lobdell's previous Red Hood work (mostly the mid to later stuff) and the idea of him continuing on. Going to use this post as a real quick up to date on the entire series thing.

SPOILERS: Gotham Academy: Second Semester #2

School is back in session for real this time... and Amy wasn't nearly as sucky.

Still sucks though.
