Batman: Prelude to the Wedding: Robin vs. Ra's al Ghul #1 Preview (UPDATED)

Whatever CBR got/decided to do, was a hacked up post of two random pages that weren't even connected together. Having read the issue I thought "why didn't they just post the opening scene, that'd make a perfect preview" so, with the files in my inbox, that's exactly what I'm doing. Technically I have up to page 10 and well... that's excessive. You get five!

SPOILERS: Detective Comics #981

James Tynion finishes up his run on Detective, puts some toys back in the sandbox, leaves others up for debate. All in all, it was a damn good run.

Batman Group August 2018 Solicitations

The New 52 is coming back ya'll! Look at them Batgirl solicits! Hell, Rocafort couldn't even be bothered to draw anything but the New 52 costumes on that Red Hood Annual cover! FINALLY! The good shit has returned!


Also, Batwoman is cancelled, but I think an Amazon listing spoiled that news. Detective Comics still trying to be slick with those Outsiders solicits.

Detective Comics #981 Preview

This is a good conclusion to Tynion's run on the book, which I think has been his best work at DC. Puts characters in places I'm excited to see, and some that lead to more questions. It's been fun.

Catwoman Gets a Redesign

The late Darwyn Cooke's Catwoman design is pretty much the only costume design I've seen that's been hailed as damn near perfect, if not completely. It's stood the test of time through the New 52 and Rebirth, that is until now.

With her new series in the works, writer/artist Joelle Jones is taking her shot at giving Selina a new look and well... Yeah, Darwyn Cooke's is pretty perfect, huh? I don't dislike the new costume, it's just... you can't touch the Cooke design. This one definitely has more of a... fetish vibe, because Stjpan Sejic doesn't have enough goof shorts on his deviant art of DC heroes. The skin tight head piece, ears look more bat-like, lack of goggles, and armpits are points that stick out to me.

Also... maybe I'm reading between the lines, but that solicit seems like "I left my fiance at the alter now I need to get out of the city" sort of vibe... we'll seeeeeeee.

Detective Comics #980 Preview

Remember the most recent issue of The Flash and its ending? This issue is like that, but for the Bat family.

Batman: White Knight #8 Preview

Read this one earlier today in my reviews batch. Without giving anything away, I'll say that it ends strongly. If you're reading the book... well then, at this point I don't see why you wouldn't get the last one, so I don't need to sell for you more than that, do I?

Also, just a general hint, right click the images and open them in a new tab. I don't see an enlarge button on the site.
