Jesus christ, in just two months we'll be talking about 2017 comics. What. So here's something new... I'm going to try out that Mother Panic book from Gerard Way and DC Comics' Young Animals line.

Figure I'll give it a shot, write about it here. ON TO THE SOLICITS.

  1. Can anybody name all the members of Batman squad?

    1. Mikel Janin concept sketches he posted on twitter made it easier to figure out: Catwoman, Bronze Tiger, Ventriloquist (Wesker), and potentially Punch and Jewelee, two obscure ass Suicide Squad characters.

  2. They can't seriously be doing another arc with another mysterious organization in Detective can they?

    1. It's not, it's a group of various victims within Gotham.

    2. Though isn't it weird for detective to have "Night of the Batmen" followed by "Night of the Monster Men"? I love the book, but that's just a real wierd thing.

    3. It's "Rise of the Batmen", not "Night of".

    4. Oh. Thanks. Should have remembered that bit.
