Looking Forward: February 17th, 2016

Comics are happening, and maybe some big news?
  • Batman and Robin Eternal #20: Someone pointed out this is sort of like the Leviathan storyline... God damn it.
  • Robin: Son of Batman #9: NO idea what's going on with this book. Gleason is here this issue, maybe the next? Then no more? Fuck if I know.
  • Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #2: The first issue was fun, sexy and surprising, looking forward to this next one.
  • Harley Quinn #25: Probably the last issue of Harley with a hair color that properly contrasts her pure white skin... Look, if you want her to look like Margot Robbie, fine, do that... don't make some poorly conceived hybrid of the two.
News you say? Well... Solicits might happen next week? I can hardly keep track of this stuff when there are five Mondays in a month. If solicits come and if Rebirth is a total #1 relaunch, I expect a few things (given solicits happen): First, "FINAL ISSUE" all around, because May would be #52 for original New 52 books, and at this point with DC's number fetish, going past that would be stupid. Second, some issues, possibly Batman (because Snyder ain't on #52) could potentially be new creative teams getting their feet wet. Third, the rest of the books will be garbage inventory issue fill in not worth reading. Fourth, and I just thought of it and had a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach because there's a good chance this could happen, lots of "REDACTED" or "TBAs" to be had in solicit text, which means DC doesn't fucking know who is doing what yet. 

We'll see, if solicits don't happen next week, then it will definitely be the next week. Maybe DC talks about Rebirth books too, maybe they save it for March. Who can say?
