Nightwing #36 Preview

For whatever reason I went from "oh another this guy got shot and nothing really happened" twist to thinking about how many times dudes just got straight up impaled in the New 52 and the next issue they were like "nah, I'm good"

Batman: White Knight #4 Preview

New year, new vague media site I've never heard of given a preview from DC!

(Source: We Got This Covered)

Looking Forward: January 3rd, 2018

I've now typed 2018 a couple of times and never mistakenly pressed 7! Hell yeah, EVERYTHING IS LOOKING UP FOR THE NEW YEAR!

...oh god.
  • Batman #38: One off story to establish a fucked up and somewhat unexpected villain... I think you can consider them a villain?
  • Batman: White Knight #4: Neo Joker has all the villains, so that's probably bad.
  • Batman and the Signal #1: Finally coming out, Gotham looks weird in the sunlight. 
  • Nightwing #36: The Judge doesn't seem like a very nice fellow.
Starting off the year with a bunch of comics to read, that's for sure.

Detective Comics #971 Preview

Like I said, I think this whole arc of public perception and Batman miiiiiiiight be important to something else next week. Maybe it's a coincidence.

Nightwing: The New Order #5 Preview

Penultimate issue! That really snuck up on me! This has been real good so far.

Looking Forward: December 26th, 2017

Last comic week of the year, and another year of Gotham Spoilers in the book... and hey, I'm still fucking here! Granted, much less than in the past, but you know... life is busy and what not. Comics are still good though!
  • Detective Comics #971: I don't know for sure, but the seeds that are being planted in this book may be directly related to some context of the big thing that comes out next week. 
  • Nightwing: The New Order #5: Superman with a beard is pretty cool. No weird cgi here.
I flipped through that Hawkman: Found one shot and boy am I not even gonna try to pretend I know what I'm talking about there. Still going to read it, but not going to devote a full post to it... especially not gonna spend my Christmas writing that up.

Nightwing #35 Preview

Eh, it's close enough to Wednesday to say that while I had some reservations about the change of writer, I found this issue to be pretty good. More on that tomorrow.

Dark Nights: Metal #4 Preview

It's been a long time, Metal.

(Source: SyFy)

Looking Forward: December 20th, 2017

God, it's been over a month with no Metal stuff. Went from damn near weekly to nothing, real quick. Feels weird.
  • Dark Nights: Metal #4: Sandman issue. I'm sure I'll understand it all... I'm totally such an expert.
  • Batman #37: Date night!
  • Nightwing #35: I have some reservations about the new creative team, but I hope for the best.
Also, solicits probably.

Looking Forward: December 13th, 2017

Well things have definitely slowed down... that and I don't like some other books that I would once cover, but nevertheless! Only one issue this week!
  • Detective Comics #970: If that cover is anything to go off of, bad stuff is coming Clayface's way.
And that's all, folks. Mr. Miracle comes out too... you should read that book.

Batman #36 Preview

Two grown men in spandex going "Should I call him? No, he should call me. PLEASE VALIDATE MY FEELINGS!"

Batman: White Knight #3 Preview

I guess other Harley is going to be a problem.

Nightwing #34 Preview

Man, Blockbuster really just smacks the crap out of Pigeon with that board, huh.

(Source: Adventures in Poor Taste)

Looking Forward: December 6th, 2017

Oh hey... my domain just registered again, I guess I should make use of it and post this thing!
  • Batman #36: An issue in which Bruce and Clark bicker among their lady friends about who should call the other.
  • Nightwing #34: Bye Tim Seeley! I'm going to miss you writing Dick!
  • Batman: White Knight #3: Harley #2 gets up to some stuff.
And the year is almost over... Hey, remember when everyone thought 2016 was bad? Cute.

Batman Annual #2 Preview

This is a good one. Glad the preview didn't have any of the second story, that's when it gets "wow, they went there."

(Source: DC Comics)

Friday, November 24, 2017

Looking Forward: November 29th, 2017

Just one issue and I read it like a week ago, so I've got some freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee time.
  • Batman Annual #2: Batman and Catwoman at the beginning... and the end. Boy, it goes places. Imagine Guy Fieri, but instead of going to Flavor Town, he's going to Feelings Town. 
 But that issue is twice the size, sooooo.

Nightwing: The New Order #4 Preview

Dick is kind of being a dick, heyooooo.

(Source: Graphic Policy)

Looking Forward: November 22nd, 2017

Yeah, comics are still happening, but I have a feeling there's only going to be one book everyone will want to talk about.
  • Detective Comics #969: Fall of the Batmen, apparently it's a big arc, and I'm inclined to believe so, as they've all been pretty big thus far.
  • Nightwing: The New Order #4: Now to check in with a bunch of familiar faces and see how much they resent Dick Grayson!
So yeah... Doomsday Clock also. Wonder if it'll get sent out tomorrow or that'll be delayed because of spoilers.

Batman #35 Preview

Boy, this is just flat out heartwarming.

(Source: Monkeys Fighting Robots)

Looking Forward: November 15th, 2017

The last issue of a Metal crossover and the final Dark Knight one shot means my schedule will soon be free! Thank god.
  • Batman #35: and Bruce has yet to question his taste in women.
  • Nightwing #33: Enemies fighting more enemies. 
  • Batman: The Batman Who Laughs #1: And I thought the Dawnbreaker issue was edgy.
  • Justice League #33: I don't know, Cyborg does a thing I assume. 
I'm gonna pass on Batwoman. Got to admit I just don't think the book is very good, thus not worth my time.
