Man, it's ridiculously hard to pull a decent image off any of the sites that host these covers. Shouldn't be that difficult for a somewhat decent image file. Meh, whatever... Oh hey, Tim's back.

  2. Some thoughts-
    -Metal is getting more wicked
    -Really hyped for Tec. Hyped that Tim is back, interested in the threads culminating, and kind of worried for Clayface given the solicit.
    -The Birds storyline reminds me of a plot from Justice League the animated series.
    -I hope Catwoman says yes, and Bats' journey is for something.
