Batman Group January 2016 Solicitations


Here come the solicits. Robin War finishes up, as the new Poison Ivy series launches. Not going to lie, I feel like I've read the "Ivy joins research group, murder happens, she didn't commit it" before, but I'll keep an open mind. Speaking of reading something before, boy does that new Catwoman solicit sound equally familiar, but given my past experiences, I'm not as open minded to a generic sounding story from a writer whose work I've found to be boring in the past. Probably going to drop Catwoman as soon as the current arc ends. Other than that, not a whole lot to take note of other than the big crazy issue Gotham Academy is doing with a whole bunch of artists.
