I, VAMPIRE #4

Written by JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV
Art by ANDREA SORRENTINO
Cover by JENNY FRISON
On sale DECEMBER 28 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+
Straight from the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK comes John Constantine! Problem is, rather than help Andrew in his war against the Queen of Blood, Constantine figures it would make more sense to just wipe out all of the vampires, including Andrew!

Kill all of the undead psychopathic cannibals? That's actually pretty sound logic.

STORMWATCH #4

On sale DECEMBER 7 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
The earth is being eaten alive! As the unstoppable alien antibody continues consuming everything in its path, Stormwatch awakens a slumbering [information redacted] buried deep within the earth. But has the team found an ally or a threat greater than the antibody? However it plays out, the DC landscape literally will be changed forever! Plus: Don’t miss a major change to the Stormwatch roster!

Man, Jenny looks PISSED. Though that's hardly suprising considering she's being attacked by...

I love that movie. All the teenage characters are played by people in their thirties, it's hilarious! The Eighties version... not so much. :(

SUICIDE SQUAD #4

Written by ADAM GLASS
Art by FEDERICO DALLACCHIO
Cover by DAN PANOSIAN
On sale DECEMBER 14 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T+
The body count rises! Another Squad member falls – but not the way you might expect! Betrayal follows betrayal as Captain Boomerang joins the Squad in a smash-and-grab against the terrorist organization Kobra, and Harley Quinn shows why you should never, ever recruit Squad members from Arkham Asylum. Brace yourself for a last-page shocker the likes of which the Squad has never faced before!

*snerk* Look at Harley there, she don't give a crap! Though as I said in my post about the Birds of Prey solicit, only being four issues in is too soon to start using phrases about how they've never faced "a threat like this before!". If only because none of the threats that they've faced are like the ones they've faced before.

ALL-STAR WESTERN #4

Written by JUSTIN GRAY and JIMMY PALMIOTTI
Art by MORITAT and PHIL WINSLADE
Cover by LADRONN
On sale DECEMBER 28 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T+
The trail of a missing child from a wealthy family leads Jonah Hex and Amadeus Arkham into the watery catacombs of Gotham City’s still-under-construction sewer system – but will they survive the many dangers that lurk in those twisty depths? Also: introducing the Barbary Ghost, a fireworks wielding mistress of vengeance, stalking San Francisco’s criminal underworld.

Cool, a new steampunk heroine for San Francisco... who might possibly be African American judging from the name. :) Also, I wonder if the Hex and Arkham storyline will tie into Gates of Gotham in any way, as the story is pretty much about how Gotham was constructed.

BATMAN #4

Written by SCOTT SNYDER
Art by GREG CAPULLO and JONATHAN GLAPION
Cover by MIKE CHOI
Variant cover by ANDY KUBERT
1:200 B&W variant cover by GREG CAPULLO
On sale DECEMBER 21 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
Retailers: This issue will ship with three covers. Please see the order form for more information.
Shocking discoveries lead Batman deeper into the mystery of the Court of Owls and its secret and bloody ties to both Gotham City and the Wayne family. But an even deadlier threat awaits Batman: a trap set hundreds of years ago, far beneath his city. The war for Gotham’s soul begins here!

Ah, nice to see that Snyder is continuing the themes from Gates, I look forward to this.

BATGIRL #4

Written by GAIL SIMONE
Art by ARDIAN SYAF and VICENTE CIFUENTES
Cover by ADAM HUGHES
On sale DECEMBER 14 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
Batgirl’s secret past finally catches up to her as she races to a final confrontation with the deadly sociopath Mirror! All the answers start right here in this thrilling issue!

*scratches head* Can you actually kick someone from that position? Looks hard.

"Look at Harley there, she don't give a crap!"

Yeah--questionable costume changes aside, I think it's fair to say that this book so far has gotten Harley's personality pretty much right. :D

"Also, I wonder if the Hex and Arkham storyline will tie into Gates of Gotham in any way, as the story is pretty much about how Gotham was constructed."

I believe the artist, Moriat, has said that while there may not be direct ties, but stuff you see in the Gotham's past elements in Gates and Batman will appear in the background of this story.

Oh look, we've completely missed the point of the reboot already. Yay.

That bit of cynisism out of the way, Stormwatch has been looking unexpectedly good and the solicits have been promising things so incredibly COMICS that I can't help but be excited.
Arkham and Hex teaming up to fight Morloc children? Okay, where do I leave my money?

Well, be fair- shit comes out of the sky and the ground at once, the after-effects probably ain't going away for at least a month.

Plus the way they're going with the new 52, it's almost certain some book or another that month's going to do " Well, at least this isn't as bad as what happened over there.. " with a nice little " Pick up Stormwatch this month to find out just what that means (if you haven't already!) " sidebar.

Secret past? Something to do with the two girls that have been summarily erased from Batgirl's history, maybe?

/forever bitter.

The cover of "I, Vampire" is... Um. Please Jenny Frison, keep on drawing covers. I'm considering relocating to my bunk.

The Batman cover is one of the most beautiful since the reboot started, imo.

Non-teen actors don't do annoying things like go through growth spurts or have their voices change half way through a season. I suspect there are also labout law considerations with some shows.

Then five seconds later Mightnighter pulls the guy out of the blob and as the momentum pulls his neck down he stabs himself in the throat.

That spike wouldn't be as bad if every image I see of him in action didn't make it look stupider and stupider.

I want to hate the squad.... BUT the solicits keep looking decent. Plus Boomerang is joining so there's a plus. If we can get deadshot serving double duty on the squad and the six that'd be wonderful.

I rather like the squad cover, really nice, and I Vampire looks pretty legit.

I think there are words that no DC solicit can be allowed to use for at least 3 years.

"Changes things forever" "Change in lineup" (Note: Not to say changes can't happen, but stop using them as selling points ... 4 issues in), "More adjective than anything they ever fought before." (Unless said adjective is 'sexy' and it's because Dinah is appearing in Batgirl. Or Catman in Suicide Squad)

More to be thought up probably when the 5th issue solicits come out. "Someone Dies Forever!"

Dude, if DC has to stop using them, it goes quadruple for Marvel, who give every event every fucking six months or so the same "NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME AGAIN!!__1!1!!1!_!1" or promote a story with a 'secret' history being revealed.

Unless, y'know, they combine the two; "THE DEADLY NOODLE INCIDENT FROM STEVE ROGERS' PAST HAS BEEN REVEALED, AND DOUBTS ABOUT HIM PLAGUE HIS TEAMMATES. NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME AGAIN!!!!!!"

Between the vultures in Detective Comics and the owls in this and The Golden Gates of Gotham, I'm just wondering why the hell Snyder doesn't just go ahead and make the Penguin his arch-villain already. God knows Ozzie could use the prestige. Then again, Snyder opted to create a pointless new villain with Tiger Shark rather than just use the Great White Shark, so I guess that he, like Morrison, is all about the new villains. Meh.

Isn't creating new characters a good thing? Also, he has a pretty good explanation as to why he deliberately did not want Dick to fight Bruce's villains:

"What I wanted to do was show how Gotham challenges its heroes. And the way it challenges its heroes, in my opinion, is by generating enemies and antagonists and challenges that are really extensions of the character’s greatest strength, but in ways that make that strength look like a weakness.

So for Bruce, the Joker is sort of who Bruce would be if he broke his rules and lived in the cave forever. And Two-Face is kind of an extension of the duality of his life. So you see a twisted funhouse version of yourself in these villains, and that’s what makes them scary and that’s what makes them potent. What we wanted to do with Dick Grayson was something similar, which was, instead of him going out and facing Bruce’s villains, it was almost like Gotham was creating new villains for him that really were reflections of his strengths and weaknesses. He’s a character that is very compassionate and empathetic. He's outgoing and social; he doesn’t have the same baggage as Bruce. So we wanted to create a world in Gotham that, little by little, was showing him how ugly people can be, why you shouldn’t be empathetic, why you shouldn’t be compassionate, and to try and break him down."

"...only being four issues in is too soon to start using phrases about how they've never faced "a threat like this before!"

That applies to a lot of the NuDC books. By issue #4 Nightwing's already fighting an evil duplicate, Batgirl's already at a final confrontation with someone she hasn't even met in the first issue, Stormwatch is already getting a major roster change. It's like they're cycling through all the Silver Age tropes at high speed.

John as in Martian Manhunter? Hmmm. I always thought he was straight though pan (or is it omni?) sexual might be a possibility since he did point out to Superwoman once that he loves only those that he sees are good on the inside too. Though I'll admit the only love interests I know about for him are of course his late wife and what's her name Blaze? Spark? The demoness looking lady from the Fernus arc.
