Nightwing #41 Preview

Well, here's the end of the arc... then we got two one off issues that I'm probably not even gonna bother with, then new creative team in May!

Batman Group June 2018 Solicitations

This is a weird set of solicits, because it's a known fact that there's some more news coming as early as this week. A lot of books seem to be throwing creators around just to fill in the gaps, like Batgirl has a new writer this month, but also Green Arrow does too after just having a new team on it. Seems like there's a lot of buying of time just to make things line up.

Some other stuff to look forward to... I guess pay attention to this week and WonderCon. James Tynion has said you'll find out where everyone in his Tec run ends up soon and (this isn't necesssarily related) there will be news about stuff this week. Joshua Williamson and Stjepan Sejic are doing a book together that isn't Flash. Snyder and King have both apparently talked up WonderCon. So we'll see where things land after this weekend I guess.

Also, jesus christ that fucking Bizarro story line in Red Hood is still going on.

New Detective Comics Team Announced

Literally as well as figuritively. You see here, Bryan Hill and artist Miguel Mendoca will be taking over the creative duties of Detective Comics, with a new arc called "On the Outside." Joining the book will be Black Lightning, as well as Duke Thomas, who joins series mainstay Cassand Cain... if you haven't figured it out by now, we're loosing the Gotham Knights and seemingly getting the Outsiders in return, which could be cool.

I haven't read pretty much anything by Bryan Hill, but I have seen his name pop up a lot recently, so he seems on the rise. I kind of wish DC sprung for a bigger name artist, as Mendoca's stuff here and there has been fine, but I wouldn't consider it very memorable for my tastes, but who knows... this could be his time to shine.

I don't know! I've never been a huge Outsiders guy, because by the time I got into monthlies, the Outsiders sort of... stopped being a thing. It was around RIP and I remember... was it Dan Didio who took it over and it just sort of fizzled away? That sounds right. Point is, not a whole lot of nostalgia for the team outside of their random apperences throughout the big 90s/00s books I read, but we'll see, Rebirth could change this all for me.

EDIT: Looking at the article, I missed the bit where this says it's for five issues... So another new team in August?

Tim Seeley on Bat/Cat Wedding Planning Duty

Just announced today, Tim Seeley will be at the helm for a number of one-shots through May and June, leading up to Batman and Catwoman's weddings. With the grand total of these issues coming to five, we'll see some versus match ups between the likes of Robin and his Grandfather Ra's, Nightwing vs Hush, and more.

This all happens while the current arc of Batman sees Bruce and Selina opt to elope, while the Joker decides to interfere.

Full lineup of the one shots below (all written by Seeley):
  • Robin vs. Ra's al Ghul, illustrated by Brad Walker and Drew Hennessy
  • Nightwing vs. Hush, illustrated by Travis Moore
  • Batgirl vs. Riddler, illustrated by Minkyu Jung
  • Red Hood vs. Anarky, illustrated by Javier Fernandez
  • Harley Quinn vs. Joker, illustrated by Sami Basri
So, with all the fighting going on, it's not exactly going to be the summer of love, THANK YOU! I'm out!

SPOILERS: Batman #42

By the end of this issue, I'm basically treating this as a back door pilot to a series I would like to see return and be done really well.

SPOILERS: Batman: White Knight #6

Car chases! Villains! and Nazi WWII experimental freeze weaponry! OH MY!

SPOILERS: Nightwing #40

It's weird that they call Judge the Sea Butcher on the cover, when that was some weird little detail that's still not really his name... I don't know, this arc is almost over then a month off (of issues I'm not gonna bother with) and new team incoming.

Batman #42 Preview

The ending of this issue makes me remember I want to see DC attempt a certain book again, only do it really well this time.

Nightwing #40 Preview

Oh jeez, it's one thing to pander to the Nightwing butt community, but pandering to the Nightwing tentacle community (THE TENTACLE COMMUNITY?!) we may have a problem here.
