Cover by LADRONN
On sale FEBRUARY 22 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US RATED T+
Jonah Hex fights a giant bat to the death! But even with his winged foe slain, will he and Amadeus Arkham survive being trapped in a cave with the lost tribe of Miagani Indians? Hex and Arkham must enlist help – including some familiar faces and some surprising saviors – if they’re going to make it out of this death trap and bring justice to the enslaver of Gotham’s underprivileged children.
Plus: The Barbary Ghost proves that a girl can be a gang boss’s worst nightmare when she has vengeance on her mind.

Yay! Callback to the Return of Bruce Wayne series (complete with distant ancestor's of Bruce)! Nice to see that at least the Gotham side of things has remained somewhat consistant. :)

Hawkman comes face to face with Jim Craddock, a.k.a. the Gentleman Ghost, a malevolent spirit obsessed with finding an ancient relic called the Mortis Orb. Can Hawkman stop Craddock from using the power of the Orb to unleash hell on Earth?

Oh no, Jimmy's turned into a steampunk version of Spawn!

Bodies are piling up, and one of their own has switched sides to lead the charge to destroy them! So how will the Knights turn the tide of battle? It all comes down to the deal Etrigan and Jason Blood have made. But can a demon truly be trusted under fire, or would he rather watch you burn?

OKay, this woman is rapidly becoming one of my new favourite characters.


1:25 Variant cover by DAVID FINCH and RICHARD FRIEND
On sale FEBRUARY 22 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
Batman’s darkest fears resurface in this stunning conclusion to the opening epic as the Dark Knight confronts the mastermind behind the toxin being injected into Gotham City’s criminals. But the conspiracy behind the toxin runs deeper than he could possibly have imagined. Time is running out – and the entire structure of Gotham City’s society is at risk, unless Batman can find a path to overcome the man who once broke his back: Bane!

Wait, you mean that the villain who has been injecting criminals with drugs to make them huge, violent and overmuscled, is actually BANE?!? Noooo! Say it ain't so!

On sale FEBRUARY 8 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
During the day, Barbara Gordon has to deal with the emotional fallout of the return of a key figure from her most painful memories, while at night, high above Gotham City’s streets, Batgirl and Batman face the deadly Gretel, a damaged woman with the lethal ability to control men’s minds!
It’s Batgirl’s first face-to-face with Batman since her rehabilitation – and he has a few choice words to say about her return to crime fighting!

He'll have things to say, like "Where the heck did Steph go? Seriously, do you have any idea how badly you've messed up my operation by abandoning your post as Oracle?".

Pretty cover though.

And finally, Batman Beyond Unlimited!

"JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND is from the creative team of Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs, adding Batman (Terry McGinnis) to the team of superheroes to combat a Neo Goath-related enemy. And in BATMAN BEYOND, from Adam Beecham and Norm Breyfogle, McGinnis and Bruce Wayne face an onslaught of Jokerz – and the return of an old foe."

Hmm, I'm just hoping that they don't follow the previous track record with Beechen's run, and decide that Mr Freeze deserves to be brought back to show that he wasn't really depressed to the point of suicide in 'Meltdown'.

That Hawkman cover is something of a mess, it took me quite a while to work out that The Gentlemen Ghost appears to have giant spider legs sprouting from his right side, and that that wasn't a giant lobster claw on his left shoulder.

I am not so sure about that. I would say the whole "Batman's darkest fears resurface..." line is why we are seeing Bane breaking the Bat's back again.

Also, that is one way to get me to buy All-Star Western. And isn't that the (or one of the bats from Swamp Thing traveling through time too? Can't remember if the bat was in Batman after the caveman issue, but was in the American Revolution in Swamp Thing.

What's with Finch's art on JLI (not shown here)? Pretty crappy for his usual great stuff. And two aryan American/English JLIers up front in center, with diversity all around the edges. Pretty typical DC there. (Get out of the way Godiva!).

As someone who LOVED the Batman Beyond toon and was utterly disappointed in the recent comics I am in a similar boat. For me tho it is the fact they got Norm Breyfogle to return to DC.

I don't think I'll be getting the new Batman Beyond run which is depressing because I adored the cartoon when I was younger. The first run was so bad and Beechen is still on it so no. But the Justice League one I think I'll be reluctantly optimistic.

Knightfall is still in continuity? So, we're going to keep from being bogged down by decades of continuity and appeal to new readers by heavily referencing a story that's almost 20 years old?

Mystery solved!

Adam Hughes artwork = Pretty.
Ryan Sook artwork = nearly as pretty.

Still not going to read that Batman Beyond book, even with Dustin Nguyen doing the art.

But what exactly is the point of Batman: The Dark Knight, now? Bruce Wayne is back in Batman, Detective and Batman & Robin full time (not to mention about half a dozen Justice League books). It seems kind of redundant to have another one that is late all the time anyway.

At the very least, his art doesn't seem to objectify any of the ladies like Hughes' artwork (which is very beautiful). Admittedly, I do like the lines, movement and life of Sook's artwork a little more.

I was wondering the same though. I don't get the point of TDK at all really.

"But what exactly is the point of Batman: The Dark Knight, now?"

It's David Finch's contractually obligated book, more than likely.

Because they need to keep the godawful 90's spinoff artist happy with his own book, that's why Dave Finch has his own book. Lord knows they could bundle him and Tony Daniel together on the same book and everyone could be happy and ignore it.

I normally really like Hughes' work, but his post-reboot Batgirl covers have been leaving me cold. I'm really digging this one, though.

Suicide Squad's cover is terrifying though. Harley is so misproportioned and weird looking and coreset-y...

The first time I saw that Demon Knights cover I mistakenly thought that woman was punching a demon..but a second look, I see her going head-to-head (literally) with a triceratops...and for that, this stamp is warranted!

Gentleman Ghost - YAY! - Steampunk'd - NOOoooooo!!! (he looks less gentlemanysh and more EVIL/Spawn/Extreme here...)

Gorgeous Batgirl cover - Woah! Can someone give Adam Hughes some interiors again? A limited yearly min-series? Something?

Jonah Hex - well Gotham's and Jonah Hex' side both seem to be kept pretty in-continuity. (Palmiotti and Grey did say so in an early interview regarding the new series)

Batman: The Dark Knight - Nooo! What did they do to Bane?? Just so he could ressemble the Arkham City/Asylum games one.... Bane in the comic was never this huge and monstrous, only games/cartoons/movies portrayed him as so...

JL: Beyond - at least the DCUniverse seems pretty unaffected by the New 52 there :P

If we gave Adam Hughes interior art again, we'd never see it. He takes forever - that's why we never saw... Was it All-Star Wonder Woman that DC openly declared he would be doing?

Oh, and Bane HAS been that monstrous before, Finch is homaging Batman 479;

He never looked that monstruous except for the covers that Kelley Jones did for Knightfall. Those are the only instances where he looks like a mountain of muscles.

From: [personal profile] mrstatham
Bane was pretty jacked up in the story, but Kelley Jones' work was always OTT.

Despite that, it still shows that Bane being depicted as monstrous isn't totally without precedent, and that Finch is hopefully just doing a homage to a famous cover, given the composition, from Bane to Batman's face, is nearly the same.

I like most of this solicits but for some reason I cannot diggest the image of Bane been over-muscled again as well as returning as been the Man who broke the Bat. The moment I read that the Gentleman Ghost was back to haunt his old nemesis made me happy although I don't approve much of his new look (He's supposed to be an elegant ghost not a Victorian Age Ares from the God of War videogame). Well, only time will tell.
