Batman Group December 2014 Solicitations


DECEMBER! Last month of the year. No real creator changes to close out the year, but it is a five week month, so you know what that means? Annuals! Batman gets Annual #3, which acts as the one (and probably only) tie-in for Endgame, it'll be written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Roge Antonio, while Grayson gets its first annual, followed by Red Hood and the Outlaws and Catwoman's second annuals. Not to be left out, there will be a Harley Quinn Holiday Special which is something I said DC should way back in July, so thanks for listening! Rounding out the things of note, Secret Origins #8 will start Dick Grayson in one its chapters. Confused? Sure you are, because there was already a SO story for Dick, but this time around, it'll be acting as a bridge filling in the gap between Nightwing #30 and Grayson #1, as confirmed by writer Tim Seeley.

So, with all that out of the way, let's get to some solicitations!
