Tuesday Roundup: October 2nd

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Usually when there’s talk of new blood in Gotham, it’s time for Gordon to light the bat-signal. But there’s no cause for alarm this week. In fact, there’s reason for celebration as the new Detective Comics creative team makes its eagerly anticipated debut. Writer John Layman and artist Jason Fabok launch a brand new, eight-issue story arc with Wednesday’s DETECTIVE COMICS #13, and you can take your first look at it below (we think “hard-hitting” is an apt description of it). And while you’re in a comic previewing state of mind, why not take a gander at the first issues of “Rotworld” in ANIMAL MAN #13 and SWAMP THING #13. Or “Rise of the Third Army” in GREEN LANTERN #13. Or at Rorschach’s bloody payback in BEFORE WATCHMEN: RORSCHACH #2. Many of our comics ended in cliffhangers going into Zero Month, and we know you’re eager to see how they get resolved. Well, guess what? It’s time!
