Collectible Close-Up: Batman Arkham Asylum Poison Ivy

If you've ever come to visit us at SDCC, NYCC or another one of our many conventions, you’ve likely noticed how we always have plenty of great DC Collectibles statues and action figures on display. We’ve been doing this for years, and over that period we’ve noticed how much time fans spend looking at our new collectibles, particularly the statues, making sure they take enough time to examine all of the texture and detail. This isn’t really surprising. Unless you happen to see one of our statues on display, it’s sometimes hard to gauge its level of intricacy.

“Joker is Bruce's greatest foe, but he's also Jim Gordon's.” – Scott Snyder

SPOILER WARNING: If you have not read DETECTIVE COMICS #879 and do not wish to know what happened, do not read any further.

In the gripping conclusion to DETECTIVE COMICS #879, Jim Gordon was forced to come to terms with the fact that his son really is the cold-blooded monster that Barbara feared he would be all along. And while he and Barbara unmasked James Jr.’s devious plan to destroy Gotham City, The Joker made his way out of Arkham Asylum.

Crash into the final issue of ARKHAM REBORN

I hate to sound like too much of a broken record, but one of the perks of wandering around the DCU editorial floor is you get to slyly scan over all the cool art and sketches the editors have on their desks and in their offices. It's always a treat to see what stuff is coming in from our various and hugely talented creators. Case in point: If you haven't been reading writer David Hine and artist Jeremy Haun's ARKHAM REBORN, you're truly missing out on the reimagining of a key component of the Bat-mythos. Still not sold?

Things get a little nutty at the new Arkham

Jeremiah Arkham's dream for a new asylum is rapidly turning into a nightmare as he is forced to call in Batman to put down a riot. But who or what is behind the sabotage? Is it possible that the asylum itself is inflicting its own retribution on the inmates? Find out in this 3-issue miniseries from the BATTLE FOR THE COWL: ARKHAM ASYLUM creative team of writer David Hine and artist Jeremy Haun.

ARKHAM REBORN #2 hits 11/25.

Editor Michael Siglain talks up the scary side of the DCU

Greetings, Source-rers, 

 

Editor Michael Siglain here, back to tempt and tease you with the latest tantalizing tombs from my little corner of the DC Universe. 

 

Labor Day has come and gone, there's a crisp chill in the air, and the kiddies are all finally back in school. September is upon us, and that means that Halloween is on its way. Yes, it's true, I'm rushing the season, but Halloween is more than just one day out of the year. For me, All Hallow's Eve is a state of mind, so let's not waste time, let's make with the creepy!

 

Two-Face makes his move as 'Long Shadows' continues in BATMAN #689

Isn't that a lovely Andy Kubert cover? You know what's better than that? Having an Andy Kubert cover with interiors by Mark Bagley. Words from Judd Winick don't hurt either. And here, in the second installment of the three-part "Long Shadows" arc, we find the newly-minted Batman scrambling to retrieve the Arkham Asylum escapees, while Two-Face begins a ground war of his own. But what's the Penguin up to? Catch a glimpse below.

BATMAN #689 hits 8/12.
