Batman: Prelude to the Wedding: Harley Quinn vs. The Joker #1 Preview

Didn't see this one on any site and it wasn't in the PR email initially... seems like poor old Harley and Joker got forgotten about momentarily. Better late than never!

Detective Comics #983 Preview

I'll be honest, I had no idea what to think going into this, other than the artist's last couple of issues on Nightwing didn't exactly do it for me, but I came away from this issue pretty pleased on both fronts. Definitely check it out if you're on the edge.

Batman Group September 2018 Solicitations

Bit of a strange month. Batgirl isn't the only one with a new costume, Red Hood has got one and from the looks of it, Batman has a new (old) costume as well. Speaking of Red Hood, I feel like at a time, everyone has just said Jason Todd should be DC's Punisher, and now we've got that and... eeeeeeh. *cue that one Larry David gif* Also! Nightwing is back to double shipping for some reason, at a higher price, of course, similarly Titans is now double shipping too. James Robinson and Stephen Segovia are the latest in the Detective Comics guest arcs, and since DC doesn't seem to want to put a permanent team on that book until #1000 (March), I'm going to pick and choose what I read, much like fill-in issues. This next arc seems to have a purpose with reestablishing the Outsiders, it seems it could lead to something else... this newest solicited arc? I don't get that same feeling, but we'll see.

So yeah, weird month.

Batman #49 Preview

Without giving too much away, there's a lot of talking in this issue, and like the DC Nation #0 story, it's pretty funny in a weird situational way.

Also, just count how many shots Joker gets out of that revolver...

Sean Murphy Redesigns Batgirl

"I really like that"

::one day later::

"Oh yeah, I run a site about Batman comics..."

Well here I am! As the title says it, Sean Murphy redesigned the Batgirl costume to something more traditional, in a sense. It looks like a cross between the Batgirl: Year One costume and his own White Knight Batgirl. This change comes with storyline reasons as Barbara heads back to Gotham proper and starts using a suit she had been working on in the past.

More images of the design can be seen over at Polygon. Honestly, this may sway me a little bit towards picking the series back up... but we'll see, there's... some stuff in September worth talking about. Also, not the only costume change we're seeing!

Detective Comics #982 Preview

Haven't given this one a read yet so I'm not sure if I'll have a post about it or not given I usually pass write ups for inventory issues, we'll see. Art looks fantastic though.

Batman #48 Preview

I've got some thoughts about this issue...

Nightwing #45 Preview

It wouldn't be a Nightwing book without weird sex stuff. Just remember how the last issue ended...

First Look at Catwoman #1

Joelle Jones' Catwoman got its first look over at Nerdist, and seeing the costume in motion (along with a Artgerm variant) I'll say it's growing on me.

Also, there's a very important detail about the wedding in tomorrow's Nightwing vs Hush issue that may pertain to this series. We'll see.
