Previews for DC in October are now up at Newsarama and these ones caught my attention

In a world gone mad, be grateful we still have the TINY TITANS BATGIRL ISSUE

You are invited to a special Batgirl issue featuring Cassandra, Stephanie, Flamebird and, of course, Barbara. Find out what happens to The Batcave when the girls take over! Bonus: Coach Lobo’s Secret Soccer team versus...The Birds of Prey?! GO-O-O-A-A-AL!

Maxine’s new abilities continue to terrify Ellen and Buddy Baker, and things take a turn for the worse as Buddy begins a startling transformation of his own that will lead him on a journey into the heart of The Red. Meanwhile, The Hunters Three arrive on Earth and set their sights on the Baker family. The Hunt is on as DC’s most surprising new series continues to take ANIMAL MAN in shocking new directions.

I'm not a huge fan of the monster on the cover, but is Maxine wearing an "Animal Girl" outfit? :)

James Robinson returns to the world of his acclaimed STARMAN series with a new 12-issue series starring the antihero known as The Shade! An attack at the Starman museum kicks off a globe-hopping, centuries spanning quest that will irrevocably change The Shade’s life, and ultimately shed light on his true origin! Artist extraordinaire Cully Hamner (RED) kicks off the series, and upcoming issues will feature art by such luminaries as Darwyn Cooke, Javier Pulido, Jill Thompson, Frazer Irving and Gene Ha!

And in a personal SQUEEEE! moment

In these tales from BATMAN #305-306, DETECTIVE COMICS #480 and 483- 492 and BRAVE AND BOLD #153-165, Batman revisits “The Curse of Crime Alley,” meets Maxie Zeus and wages war on the League of Assassins.

About freaking time DC, and "Vol. 1" is a promising sign.

The Hunters Three had a friend who really wanted to come, but as we all know, four is death.

I wonder what costume Steph will be wearing in that issue of Tiny Titans. Has she ever worn her Spoiler costume in that series?

That Cass- such a showoff. Everyone else is using one or both full hands to swing on their lines, and she's supporting her entire body weight (while swinging) just between her thumb and forefinger.

You could probably do that as well... you know.... if you could kick through bullet-resistant glass, prison walls, or shatter a sword with just two fingers.

Besides the running gag she seems to have is running around with both hands in the air, in the shape of claws.

Great to see Don Newton's work getting some attention -- one of the all-time greatest Batman artists. That run of Detective Comics he did with Denny O'Neil is fantastic stuff. Speaking of Bat-ladies, it sounds like this collection will include the death of Kathy Kane/Batwoman, and the original Batgirl vs. Cormorant story. Also the debut of the Bronze Tiger, for you Suicide Squad fans.

And yes, let's hope for more volumes. There's a lot more Batman material to cover, as well as Captain Marvel, Aquaman, etc.

BATMAN: ODYSSEY is back in a new volume from legendary writer/artist Neal Adams!
It’s finally happened: Batman must kill or be killed. The threat is real and can’t be stopped by man or hero. To combat it, Batman must bring time itself to a standstill so that he can embark on an odyssey of self-discovery to a place unknown to mankind, where he can find himself. But is this a place where only failure awaits?

What? WHAT? :D

At least the monster isn't a sharp-toothed vagina. Been seeing that too much lately. The Internet is dangerous.

BUT YAY BATGIRLS! Cass' costume always makes for some of the best interpretations hahaha

DON NEWTON -- Motto about damn time. I hope they collect his Rayboy-worthy Marvel Family stories at some point.

It takes the end of canon to give us another Shade series? Wait, Starman's continuity itself might crack the DCNU in half.
