Batman Group December 2015 Solicitations


Bruce Wayne discovers a secret from his past?! Could it be that he finds out he was Batman!? Shock and awe people, shock and awe...

So, changes this month.... Catwoman creative shift, for whatever reason... Remember when I said I thought Tieri's recent Gotham related work was super generic by all accounts? Well look at that generic solicit text! Catwoman is a thief and needs to remind everyone she's a thief! Okee-dokee.

We'll see. I guess.

That's the only big change really. We knew Scott McDaniel was drawing the Robin issue for the crossover, and Gotham by Midnight got cancelled. Other than that, not much else to take note of.

  1. Can't believe they are canceling omega men. Started reading it based on your strong reviews. I think it's phenomenal but now I feel like all I will have left are bat family titles and justice league

    1. Probably because he's writing Robin War #1 and presumably #2. Don't jump to conclusions.

  3. I remember a time when there were less comic books in DC's entire line than there are the number of Bat related books today.... Hard to keep up. Thanks for what you do here.
