Last year, before we got too deep into the new year, I made a post about some things I'd like to see in the Batman universe. Some of my hopes happened, and then some... well let's just say I just realized I've spent a fucking year saying that Catwoman needs a new writer who isn't horrible. But never mind all that, time for the new shit! March 2014 solicitations are (most likely) due Monday, and with them brings the end of Forever Evil, which DC has promised will change the DCU, and every book will catch up to that post-Forever Evil status quo. Whatever happens with the DCU, I'm willing to bet we get cancellations and new books, because let's be honest, DC needs some, as they've sat around while Marvel literally announces 20+ new #1s, most of which are new titles.
With all that in mind, I don't believe the Batman family will be immune any longer to the old cancellation axe, and I may be in for some "______ cancelled" news posts here at Gotham Spoilers as earliest as next week, or perhaps with April's solicitations in January. So what am I here to do? Well, I'm going to go through each Batman family book, one by one, and tell you what I think may be in store for it in 2014.
So let's begin!
Batman: The Dark Knight
EDIT: I wrote this on Wednesday… I found out what #29 is going to be on Thursday… UMMM. My prediction still stands, just maybe not in March.
Red Hood and the Outlaws
Birds of Prey
Past that, I'm not sure what other characters from the Bat family could be given a book, everyone is pretty covered, everyone that exists in this universe, that is.
Hopefully whatever changes starts to happen with this next batch of solicitations, because I for one, am tired of using this image as a representation of where DC comics has been for the past couple of months, while every other publisher has had exciting announcements seemingly every week.
...Actually, I'm not that tired of it, because I think it's pretty humorously spot on.
