Batman Group July 2015 Solicitations


OH THANK GOD. DC books to talk about. This whole Convergence thing is really starting to suck. Go away you meaningless books which will amount to nothing! I don't want you!

So what's new in July? Well, July is annual month, and Batgirl will be getting its third annual (of which I'm very excited for) and surprisingly, Gotham by Midnight will get an annual as well, wasn't expecting that. Fernando Blanco is drawing Detective in July, which is odd given the two month break Convergence provided. Elsewhere, Helen Mingjuechen is listed on Gotham Academy as artist, which is also weird since I was told Karl Kerschl would be back for #8 (and going by Twitter, is also drawing stuff similar to the cover of this issue IE rain) and I was told correctly, Brenden Fletcher confirmed Karl Kerschl is indeed drawing the issue.

Also, some of the books that were listed at $3.99 last month are back to $2.99 this month? Either the website that is breaking embargo is posting shitty info, or DC caved due to my hard hitting reporting! But now Black Canary is $3.99? I think they're doing "old titles stay at $2.99, new are $3.99" or something. Maybe not? Seeing conflicting info. Fuck it, we'll see when I can get the text from a regular site that people actually remember exists.

You may also notice that Krillin is not in any of these issues. Why is that, you might ask? Well, it's because Krillin is a useless asshole, that's why.

  1. Looks like bad info. Black Canary remains $2.99 on DC's site for their #2 solicit. However, Previewsworld has Aquaman 41 at $2.99, while DC's site lists it as $3.99, so who knows what's happening anymore?

  2. Let's hope Grayson doesn't get "revealed" in the Batgirl Annual. It's too early, plus Damian should be the one to flush him out!

  3. I love that Gotham Academy cover looks spooky
