A Public Service Announcement From DC Nation
I interrupt my usual DC Nation-ness to bring you, the DC Comics reader, a very important announcement: The comics shipping this month are freaking awesome! I know you're thinking "But Ian, the comics are awesome every month!" and you're totally right - they are - but this month features so many special items I wanted to make sure that you were perfectly clear on the degree of amazing we've got going on. Throughout October we are bringing you specials, new projects, new formats, new beginnings, and much more. I'll be dedicating this space to more specific coverage of some of these projects later on, but for now let's review some of what you can expect to see:
- Bruce Wayne - The Road Home Specials
These specials include Batman & Robin, Red Robin, Batgirl, Outsiders, Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, Oracle and Ra's al Ghul and set the status quo for the hotly anticipated...
