  1. These solicits are making me pumped, especially Tec. I feel that giving batwoman a new creative team will get the book a more bland feel and canceled quicker. Also, seems like batman of tomorrow is appearing in the pages of superman.

    1. Fortunately, I think Perkins is just a fill-in for an issue. A few other titles are getting what look like one-offs by different writers that month, too.

  2. Apparently Future Tim & The Titans of Tomorrow are appearing in Superman in January. Any chance you'll cover that?

  3. That cover for the issue of Batgirl with The Penguin is fantastic. I wonder if the story will be nearly as good.
