  2. So they're not publishing an issue of Batwoman with Batman in it so that she can be better tied into the Batman corner of the DC universe. The mind boggles.

  3. The Nightwing cover looks a bit odd... But I guess I should be worried about the solicit a lot more...

    ReplyDelete
  4. I dont think anyone should be worried about the Nightwing solicitation, as we all know that after Forever Evil #1 that his life will be forever changed, so `With the events of FOREVER EVIL looming, Nightwing enters the final stages of life as he knows it!'is referring to his life as a hero with a secret identity will soon be over.

    1. Yea, but I'll take it. Ha. Better him doing just covers on Nightwing than anything on Catwoman 23....haha.

    2. Yeah, I saw that he co-wrote that. Talk about weird/random.

    3. Haha. Yea. Add to that weird/random with Catwoman 23 being sold for 20 bucks at the Baltimore Comic Con. I know it has Joker's Daughter....but, come on....

  6. Hey, so I enjoy reading your blog and I thought that it was a place for people to express their opinions about the Bat-verse comics.
    But you haven't approved 2 of my posts now.
    It annoys me because I try to put time and thought into what I write and I try to present what I feel in a clear and precise way.

    1. Because I don't care for long winded complaints

    2. Well you complain here plenty of times, you just manage to keep it into a sentence or two.

    3. It's my website. If you want to say that you don't think anything with the word "Batman" in it seems interesting, go make your own.

    4. I mean that it's the most major character in this universe of comics, and it didn't seem like the creative teams were making the most of the characters potential. But I will be more cautious of what I post then in that case.
