The gift of Clayface, TAKE IT IN MAAAAAAAAAAN. (reference!)

Batman Group July 2016 Solicitations


So I'm psyched to see Rebirth solicits, then looking at them, realize I'm only posting about five or so books. Man, the idea of DC double shipping sure is strange. While some of these books could and probably will be good, variety will be missed.

One note... Harley Quinn is officially coming to "an end," only to start again in August, so you know... not a big deal.

  1. I'm just going to point out that Nightwing's new mentor Raptor might be the same villain he fought in the pre-52 continuity.

    1. I'm guessing it has something to do with the Court of Owls.

  2. I'm personally worried the new Oracle is Felicity Smoak. :(
