All month long, comic book fans will be coming together to celebrate the season of giving, togetherness, joy and…rot?
Well, yes. The holidays may be known as a festive time, but with Rotworld in full swing, we’re bringing a little decomposition to December in 2012. The shocking, suspenseful storyline which unfolds each month in both Swamp Thing and Animal Man continues in both comics this week. ANIMAL MAN #15 finds Buddy Baker, Black Orchid, John Constantine, Beast Boy, Steel and Frankenstein running into the ferocious, furry frenzy of Gorilla Grodd and his minions. And judging by this week’s “brainy” new preview, it doesn’t look like they’re be teaming up to fight a common enemy. Then in SWAMP THING #15, Swamp Thing and Deadman make their way to Gotham, but first they must deal with William Arcane. It’s probably safe to assume young William’s not going to make Santa’s nice list this year…
Of course, that’s just the start of this week’s excitement. “Death of the Family” visits Detective Comics this week, and we have three different links to a slick preview of issue #15 below. All this, plus new Before Watchmen: Comedian, Before Watchmen: Minutemen, Earth 2, Green Arrow, Dial H and the debut of Human Bomb. Also, a special shout-out this week to the Superman Facebook page, which recently passed the 3 million mark. That’s a whole lotta “likes,” and as a thank you, we debuted this week’s ACTION COMICS #15 preview there.
