So DC's next big event is Future's End, a look five years into the future of the DC universe. And Bleeding Cool has gotten some preview scans of what's happened to some of our favorite superheroes in five years time.

In the grim darkness of the near future... )

[personal profile] espanolbot 's post about Martha Wayne's underrepresentation in Batman stories inspired me to post pages from Greg Rucka's and Klaus Jansen's 2003 miniseries Batman: Death and the Maidens.



Rucka's run on the regular Batman titles culminated with Batman realizing that he's still Bruce Wayne at his core, and that he should be nicer to his family for the x time.

When Rucka came back to write "Death and the Maidens" he simultaneously reinforced his previous points while attempting to plug one of Bruce's other persistent wells of angst and drama: the perpetual mourning over his parent's death.

And in doing so, he gave Martha one her most extensive roles in a Batman story that I can think of.

Hi folks!

It's been a while since we last checked in on our favorite hideously-scarred bounty hunter, so let's do that.



This scene does not appear in this issue. What does is a wedding you were never expecting to see; SPOILERS for All Star Western #26.

Four pages from the latest issue )

Hey everyone. First post here, so I felt it appropriate to delve into the history of Batman true greatest nemesis - KILLER MOTH!

OK, so the Titans are bouncing randomly around the time stream as a result of Forever Evil. Most of #24 is snippets of those bounces; [personal profile] superfangirl1 posted 3 pages of Bart's bounce-forward here. I've got about an eighth of one pages and 7/8 of the next to, like the Dude's rug, really tie the whole thing together.

Heaven help us all. )

Mods, a quick question w/r/t those pages I said above I wished I could post: Teen Titans Annual #2 comes out next week. With that release will this one no longer be considered "current" & subject to the 4-page limit? (the things that occur to you once the caffeine hits the bloodstream...)

Oct. 12th 1985 is a very special date for me. For one, it's the date of my birth. But it's also the date that Moore and Gibbons' amazing maxi-series Watchmen begins. This October being Villains Being Awesome month, and today my special day, I wanted to showcase the one indisputable point where a controversial "villain" does an amazing bit of presentation and achieves what was for so long in comics a conventional taboo.

Spoilers for Watchmen (why haven't you read it yet?)

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair. )

11 pages from 36 page Watchmen #11

So, because 2014 is a big year for Batman (Something about a milestone anniversary), DC have announced a new weekly Batman title, "Batman Eternal".

Scott Snyder will be overseeing the book, whilst a rotating team of four writers (James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, and Tim Seeley) contribute stories. So far, Jason Fabok is the only confirmed artist for the title.

The cover seems like it's missing something however... )

Hi folks!

Time for a good old-fashioned crossover! And by old-fashioned, I mean a story set in 1941.



Gotta love that title. Since DC isn't doing anything with the Spirit right now, it's nice they lent him to IDW for this, and the Rocketeer is a fun character too.

The Case of the Cross-Country Corpse! )

By the by, I am running a book giveaway at my blog, SKJAM! Reviews, and you could win one of seven books! http://www.skjam.com/2013/09/16/giveaway-autumn-giveaway-ends-september-30-2013/ Help me get my book review blog noticed!

In a world with no Justice League - in a Gotham without a Batman - hope still springs eternal.
 
Even if it comes from the unlikeliest of sources.
 
 
What measure is 'the good old days?' )
Oh, and Ray Fawkes co-wrote this issue! He doesn't have a tag yet, so I'll just credit him here.
 
Food for Thought: What are the pros and cons of DC having a theoretical Villains Year? One year of no heroes doing angsty gray-area stuff - just villain character development. If so, which villains deserve a ten-month, Black-Mirror style story arc?

According to Wikipedia, The Crime Syndicate's Owlman first appeared in 1964. This probably makes Richard Grayson the first Owlman, according to this quirky 1957 story, "The Grown-Up Boy Wonder!"

Note: Please adjust eyes for vintage comic reading!

Food for Thought: According to that big 'ol banner in that there header, Scans_Daily has been bringing the crack for a grand ten years now. So is it belated happy anniversary or advanced happy anniversary? Or is it a "don't count the years" thing?

Well, this issue was all kinds of a messy origin story for Trigon. 3 1/2 pages.

Heart of Darkness )
Incidentally, those defeated and/or tied up Titans on the cover? Don't appear anywhere in the issue. I call bait & switch!

Four pages from GL: NG, where arc villain Relic strikes a major blow to the Lantern defenses.

C is for cookie, and S is for spoilers!

Look at the stars. No hope in sight. )

Food for Thought: With something like this, there's bound to be casualties, but when was the last a time a new villain effectively established himself as a threat without killing anyone?

The new issue of Teen Titans is out today, and it's a kind of breather issue between Big Epic Battle Sequences - the one we've just finished with Trigon & Co., and the upcoming Forever Evil sub-issues (numbered #23.1 and #23.2) featuring Trigon and Deathstroke.

You'll recall that last issue ended a little something like this:

(preview image from issue #22)
Titans? Anyone? HELP? )

We have a guest artist in Robson Rocha this issue, whose pencils are serviceable, and inker Wayne Faucher. But I continue to hate the coloring jobs we're getting on this book.

OK gang, it's time for LOSH #23, "Aftermath," and you all know what THAT means....

 photo p2_LOSH-23_preview.jpg

On the upside, we do get lovely Kevin Maguire art for Aftermath. If you've ever wanted to see what Maguire could do with Bouncing Boy - and if not, why not?!? - this ish is your chance.

Everything since the crash is a cauchemar. )

And that's it until some other creator decides to reopen the toybox. Long Live the Legion!

“Forever Evil is my love letter to DC super villains. It’s my chance to take all of the villains I’ve worked with and all the ones I’ve never worked with and put them into one gigantic, epic story that will bring together the bads of the DC Universe.”
