Batman Group February 2017 Solicitations


February is here, or will be, and these are the comics that come with it.

Some new stuff, Batwoman being the biggest of the bunch. New one-off artist for All-Star Batman in Tula Lotay, which is fucking perfect for Poison Ivy, and a new member of the Detective Comics team in the from of Azrael, which is probably pretty predictable.
