Yeah I was shocked the big blackout happened in the back-up! Amazing huge excellent issue. I thought it was cute that Bats dragging Joker down off the copter was from the ending of Batman 1989.

One thing fooled me; I thought the Red Hood Gang was building EMP bombs and were going to cause the blackout. I thought that was the point of the whole 'they're stealing random things to mask what they're really building' bit.

A Batman weekly series called "Eternal" has been announced with Scott Snyder being it's "head writer" along with James Tyrion IV, Ray Fawkes, John Layman, and Tim Seely. Jason Sook is one of the artists. It will have rotating creative teams. DC also announced a special 104 page "Detective Comics #27" for Batman's 75th Anniversary next year. Also Manupul and Buccellato have been confirmed for joining "Detective Comics".

So this Batman weekly series is in ADDITION to Batman and Detective, right? Is Bat/Rob going away or is that staying?

It's in addition to the rest of the family titles yes. Batman and Two-Face (as it's being called right now) looks like it will stay and change the and with each arc?


Geoff Johns clarifies the status quo on character relationships. So they don't want characters "rushing into relationships".

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Just finished reading Arkham War #1 and was pleasantly surprised. This story is right up Tomasai's alley. Got a bit of a feel of No Man's Land of it with Batman gone (at least the villains think he's gone still) and the police completely overwhelmed. Is Detective Pierce a new character introduced in this or has she been introduced somewhere else?

Also enjoyed Superman/Wonder Woman #1 as well. Doomsday should be interesting to see.

^ First time it has been presented as something interesting IMO. Also that wasn't Geoff Johns who answered the relationship question, it was Bob Harras. LOL. The article has since been corrected.

So Rich's journalistic integrity remains intact?

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

i have no problem with Superman/Wonder Woman, its just that for so long that relationship wasn't even mentioned outside Justice League. Wonder Woman's book still hasn't even mentioned Steve Trevor.

as much as i enjoy the current story arc in WW i would like then to eventually tackle more traditional characters like Trevor, Cheeta and Circe.

Yes, it was quite good. I hope we see more of WW teaching Superman how to actually fight instead of just relying on his abilities alone.

Also, the art was amazing in this book.
