So, to my supreme disappointment, it looks like Question #37 was delayed until next week. So, while this means we won't get two Question books this week, it does mean a couple other things.
~ Next week gets two Rucka-penned Blackest Night tie-ins, one which serves the event that I'm just dreading, and another which serves the characters that I'm really excited for!
~ Next Wednesday being just two days prior to it, Question #37 now officially counts as DC's birthday present to me. Thanks guys!

But enough of that. We still have 'Tec for no-faced goodness!
About three and a quarter pages from ten.

When last we left our heroes, they'd been followed back to the lighthouse by a bad guy!

hahaha Tot
The guy says his name is Zeiss and he's been tracking them for a while, so he knows what they'll do before they do it. That doesn't seem to include the way they pull the table over to catch some of the bullets he proceeds to feed them.

Renee has Hel get Tot to safety while she takes Zeiss. (hmm, Renee doesn't have a simple three-letter nickname like the others (Vic included), maybe i should start calling her Nee?)

Unexpected? Okay, maybe he was just talking a lot of hot air when he said he could anticipate their moves. Just illustrating how closely he'd been watching, maybe?

Well, anyway, he does turn the tables on this fight, and Nee takes a nasty spill into the desk, which well...

oh you guys already know how much of a sucker i am

Zeiss closes in for the kill, but!


So Zeiss is just an assassin, so they play dead for a photo he can use to get paid, and hire him for information on his employer. This costs them two million and Hel's Lamborghini, much to her consternation.
And what do they get out of the deal?


But that's not all! And if you caught it in the previous page, you know what's coming.


Rucka's made a lot out of it in interviews that Nee and Tot don't really get along, but so far all we've seen since Crime Bible #4 is a not-all-that-grudging partnership. There isn't a lot of tension, but little camaraderie either. Perhaps thin ice waiting to crack, and it just did. Question #37 is supposed to feature this topic centrally, so I guess we can consider this a lead-in for next week.

And as a special bonus, one panel from Batman & Robin #7, introducing Kate's new role in the Batfamily!


One last thing, this is the final reminder for the folks who've claimed lines on the Scans_Daily Boom De Yada! Monday I'm gonna clear all the claimed lines that haven't been recorded and open them to another round of claims!
So if you've claimed a line you want to record, you have till the 1st!
If you hadn't claimed a line but want to contribute, keep an eye open on Monday, and you might be able to have a line for your very own!
Let's make it the best, [community profile] scans_daily!

I didn't want to be a chump and start picking up Batman and Robin just because Kate was in it. But my first thought after reading that panel was "Oh hell yeah" and now I am so conflicted.

It's such a shame that she's going to get shoved out of 'Tec once Bruce gets back in a few months....

The whole panel is switched in that B&R #7 panel, which was pretty funny, but still--yeesh. You'd think with an extra month to prepare that they'd fix all fuck-ups.

Zeiss isn't a new character BTW, he fought Batman and Cass/Batgirl a few years back.

I'm reminded of the comic where supergirl dresses like a cheerleader,threatens half of Gotham's thugs and proclaims herself Batman.

Helena's never really looked like that before, but it's absolutely how I always want her to look out of costume.

Even though I'm not Objectivist myself (quite the opposite, in fact), I love seeing the original Question's Objectivist philosophy being acknowledged.

... why does Zeiss have assembler in his HUD?

I can't see LDA and STA helping you analyze people's movements- did he just forget to turn the debug console off?

I don't think I've mentioned this before. But, I ADORE Detective Comic's art. Personally, I don't think Helena's ever looked this good.

Also, harsh Tot. He went there.

Wait - 'Question #37'? I thought the only place we were getting any Question stuff was in Detective Comics. How long has Renee had her own book?

I just have to say it: Martha Kane Wayne's son Bruce Wayne...Kate Kane...(distant) cousins. Old lovers or even just daters? That's a wee bit too old-school blue blood, even for me.

I like Renee and Helena together. Very similar temperaments and styles. Can't wait to see next week's Question issue.
