Damian behind bars? Red Robin surrounded? Batman facing off against two new foes? This batch of covers, featuring the artistic stylings of J.H. Williams III, Tony Daniel, Dustin Nguyen and Marcus To, is light on answers but big on questions. But isn't that what they're for?
Take a few minutes from your day and peruse the January covers for BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM, DETECTIVE COMICS, BATMAN and RED ROBIN, won't you?
As promised, we've got a look at the Batwoman feature from DETECTIVE COMICS #857, as Batwoman faces off against Alice in an attempt to stop the villainess from unleashing a toxic death cloud over all of Gotham. But Alice has more up her sleeve than just poison, and Batwoman's life will never ever be the same again. What more do you need? Oh, right. Artwork. Well, here you go. From the team of Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III, DETECTIVE COMICS #857 hits 9/23.
Have you checked out the great work writer Greg Rucka and artist Cully Hamner are doing monthly in the pages of the QUESTION co-feature in DETECTIVE COMICS? If not, you're missing out. But here at The Source, we're all about spotlighting all the fun stuff coming out of these offices, and THE QUESTION is no exception. In DETECTIVE COMICS #857, the Question's search for a missing girl leads Renee to a human trafficking ring, and the Question suddenly finds herself in way over her head.
It's almost Friday. Half the week is over. But we've still got two more days before the weekend is upon us. And we've got a few heavy hitters. Specifically, BATMAN #694 from writer/artist Tony Daniel, a lovely J.H. Williams DETECTIVE COMICS #860 cover and last, but certainly not least, Andy Kubert's magnificent cover to the minty-fresh BATMAN 80-PAGE GIANT. Feast your eyes, folks. All three hit in December.
We wander the DCU editorial offices pretty regularly, just to get a sense of what's coming up in the book.

So, without further ado, I present DETECTIVE COMICS editor Michael Siglain, who is fittingly talking about DETECTIVE COMICS. Take it away, Mike:
