Jason Bard's hip new policing ways are just too much for old man Batman to handle.
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight. Rising up to the challenge of our rival!
I'll be honest with you, I'm far too hungover to think up something to write here. So, comics?

In the madness of all the random NYCC related posts I have to put up, nothing stops the Stack Rundown train! This week there were some new #1s from DC and Vertigo which I read, like Superman/Wonder Woman and Coffin Hill, as well as all the usuals from my pull.

Holy crap! I got this done on Thursday afternoon. What am I going to do on Friday? I have no comics to read and nothing to write! Go outside, maybe? Ehhh...
Anyways, comics! Trinity War started this week, and I guess it's a big deal? Something like that... Yeah, spoilers on that one, just so you know.

My stack saw a fair share of sharks this week, for whatever reason, a few books come to their conclusion, and hey! I only actually paid for 12 out of these 13 books. SCORE. With all that $2.99 I saved, I'm practically rich!

Ten bucks says I pretty much just wrote DC's "THIS JUST HAPPENED" blog for the week? (I really hate that line). Anyways...
It's no secret I thought Suicide Squad was a very hot and cold book, particularly cold towards the end of Glass' run, being that it relied so heavily on the threat of Basilisk, who as I've said before, I'm pretty sure no one gives a shit about. So, I've been really looking forward to the Ales Kot & Patrick Zircher takeover of the title, which starts with today's issue #20... and quite the last page reveal, I've got to say.
After their most recent mission, Waller locks the Squad back up in Belle Reeve, and brings in a mysterious "consultant" to evaluate her squad. Why bring in this particular consultant, drenched in shadow? Well, because he has a special expertise, serial killing.
I'll give you some hints, he should be familiar to this blog, and you have to keep in mind Waller's ability to bring people back from the dead, after the Squad's encounter with Resurrection Man.
Done guessing? Well, hit the jump to see who it is.

Good morning, from the past where I'm writing this, because I'm being proactive. This week we got a couple of new Marvel #1s, and some stuff I wasn't planning on reading, but got surprised by it nonetheless (no, not Katana). As usual, hit the jump for all my thoughts.

So, as where we left off, Joker is choking Harley at ACE Chemicals, until the point where she passes out. Upon her coming too, she soon finds her self at the edge of another acid bath, as Joker is going to give a refreshing dip of sorts. Meanwhile, Amanda Waller and Yo-Yo are watching it all unfold through a secret lens Waller had planted on Harley's eye. Waller is showing it all to Yo-Yo to gain his trust, so he can spy on the squad, and in return, she'll teach him to gain respect.

Death of the Family, Death of the Family, Joker Joker Joker, what else is new. Hopefully this is more focused on the actual DotF, instead of losing focus through out the middle like the first issue.

Nothing but Death of the Family next week.
- Batman #15: The big midpoint of the story, also featuring the actual family... who is gonna die.
- Batgirl #15: Get prepared for the most fucked up wedding of the century!
- Batman and Robin #15: Damian and Joker's last meeting didn't really turn out well for Damian, who wants to be it will happen again?
- Suicide Squad #15: Mistah J </3 Harley... :(

Good thing Li'l Gotham came out this week, because we need something to balance out all the decomposing faces strapped to people's heads.

At Deadshot's funeral (he shot himself through the chest, to shoot Regulus last issue), Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, and Amanda Waller, all stand at attention, as Deadshot receives his military style service... until the rain starts... green rain, knocking out all those at the funeral, except Harley, who seems to have an immunity to it. Whatever could that mean? Oh wait, I know! Puddin' is home!

It's time for "Death of the Family" to really kick it into gear!
- Batman #14: Like I really have to give any tease for this one
- Batgirl #14: Joker seems to have a creepy, yet fond, admiration for his former victim.
- Batman and Robin #14: It's probably gonna be one of those "labeled a tie in... but not really" issues.
- Suicide Squad #14: Gonna give this issue full coverage due to the Death of the Family tie in.

As previously announced, all (at least the initial) issues of the "Death of the Family" tie in issues will come with die-cut covers by Greg Capullo, that will slip over the issues. I don't know how exactly they will work, but I'm assuming the white part will be cut out? Something like that I guess, you don't see die-cut covers all that much anymore.
Anyways, CBR got all of 'em, and you can hit the jump to see the rest.

So, we've known which books were going to tie into the "Death of the Family" event (as well as just finding out Detective is involved to) but there had been no word on how many issues each series would dedicate to the event... UNTIL NOW!
Yep, that emphasis was not needed. Short end of it is that like Nightwing in "Night of the Owls," a lot of these books will have more than one issue with their given characters squaring off with the Joker, which is fine by me... sucks for everyone's wallets though.
Hit the jump for the full checklist.
