Welcome to Stack Highlights, it's like Stack Rundown but with a fraction of the effort!
And the mother of year award goes to... literally anyone but Lady Shiva
Lots of style, just need a little more easily discernible substance for my tastes.
I'm not sure exactly why most of this issue happens, but it sure is cool.

Missed Stack Rundown last week, mainly because I was in the middle of a 40 hour work week... of the course of Friday through Sunday. Yeah, moving offices sucks. Anyways, I didn't have any time to read any comics and here we are. I went through all the books other than Image published, that I read and did real quick thoughts. Caught up now! ish.

Oh right, I have this thing to do.
- Batman #16: Bane is back, and he's high on venom... also pissed, what else is new?
- Nightwing #14: End of the Bludhaven arc, but probably not the end of Dick in Bludhaven.

If the Rebirth issue is essentially a #0 issue for the new series, does that make these past two issues negative issues? OOOH. DC should get on that, really fuck with Marvel and their #19.MU or whatever the hell that is.

Maybe it's the lack of sleep and pure exhaustion, but I'm somewhat more optimistic towards this issue this week? At least it feels familiar... still wish this book tried to do something more than "well it's more of what came before it," so we'll see.

Maybe this whole country will be on fire by the 25th, we'll have to see. Don't count on anything!
- Detective Comics #949: Batwoman Begins Ends.
- Batgirl #7: Maybe this will be the issue this volume finds its unique voice? I have my reservations.

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.

Okay, double checked to make sure I put 2017 in the image this time. Totally for sure sure that it's there. Yep. Always make that mistake at least once.
- Batman #15: Batman and Catwoman love each other, gross.
- Nightwing #13: False faces? Cue a cool cover from Marcus To.

Oh god, there are so many comics. Stop comics, my Sunday mornings can't take it anymore. Lots of my Image pulls are coming to an end, can Rebirth stop being pretty good? I could go for a week where I read two books.
YES! Oracle, betray the team! That way you won't be in this book! I don't need another "I'm just some dude who you're supposed to care about now, good luck with that!" character bogging down another volume of Birds of Prey!

That awkward moment when you realize you've got twice as many followers as the random site DC gives an exclusive to and have been around twice as long too.
Never should have leaked those WTF month covers.

Big week next week for two big reasons.
- All-Star Batman #6: I relatively don't know where this is going! I've got some names, but I actually haven't seen any of this issue and have absolutely no idea what the second arc is about. Exciting!
- Detective Comics #948: While Stephanie Brown is over there going "lol, I'll show Batman I know best" Batwoman is over here beginning or something.
- Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #6: I don't like "new Oracle," so lame.
- Red Hood and the Outlaws #6: I think the team is finally complete this issue? Curious to see how it functions afterwards.
- Gotham Academy Second Semester #5: Back to the main story, I think? Colton supposed to get expelled? Solicits are weird since the fill-in.
