The Justice League thinks they're going to stop Bruce from getting Damian back... aw, that's cute.
Deacon Blackfire is back, and for some reason he finds Gotham a more suitable place than Hell.
Short week, but I actually picked up a new DC series with no "Bat" in the title, and might actually keep reading it. WEIRD!
Futures End? Psh. Let's get back to talking about the REAL Batman Beyond.

Panels of the Week, 11/29/2012
Eh, I don't feel like writing any specific intro for the post this week, I mean... how many times can I say something different? Panels. That's it.
Batman Incorporated #5: This has a lot of what I like about Chris Burnham's art. Lots of detail, the fights and violence are awesome, and the ability he has to convey emotion through the cowl's eyes. Not a whole lot of people allow the cowl to move and be manipulated in such a way, but he does, a lot, and it's pretty awesome. Also, Nathan Fairbairn's colors are pretty great in this sequence (and the entire book).
Talon #2: My stance on fill-in art is pretty well known, but if it isn't a "this guy drew half and that guy drew the other half" sort of deal, it looks consistent with the book's overall style, and is actually good, I don't mind it. Here... didn't mind at all, Ryp's work was pretty good, and as you can see above, was highly detailed. As noted in my review, Morey's colors did wonders to make this look consistent with March's issues prior.
Batman - The Dark Knight #14: Said it in my review, but David Finch is making his exit off the book a hard goodbye. His Scarecrow is creepy, gritty, and down right dirty. My exact words when flipping to this page: "God damn."
Legends of the Dark Knight #26: Speaking of Scarecrow, hey look! More Scarecrow!
