Batman Group April 2017 Solicitations


So let's be clear. A while ago, I posted some "leaked" covers on here because DC's site used to be really easy to figure out what a future image url would be. That's not the case here. Solicits were announced to be coming out today, but seems like DC jumped the gun on that, given that the rest of the industry has theirs next week due to there being 5 Mondays this month. Sucks, but oh well.

I was then alerted that a certain retailer, of the not-so-physical variety, didn't get the memo and had (most) of the books posted on their site for pre-order. So you know... Here you go. I didn't do shit! Just copy and pasted some text and images found publicly on the site owned by a multibillion dollar company. I've been good! ...especially considering some things I've--NOPE. Staying good.

(Also worth noting all these books, other than All-Star are listed at 2.99, which wouldn't be the first time DC has had higher prices in early solicit previews for whatever reason)

Turns out DC is trying Marvel's old digital program, including codes for an extra dollar. If the digital prices remain the same, then good on DC for improving that practice.
