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.

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. [gallery link="file"]
Sometimes you're just better off showing the art. On July 22, the Deluxe Edition of NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Neil Gaiman and artist Andy Kubert's two-part "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" story will hit, and will also feature an all-new cover from Kubert. Consider this an early Christmas gift.
You just saw the first four pages from DETECTIVE COMICS #853 over at IGN, but why stop there? It's Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling novelist, winner of more awards than we can list and one of the true trailblazing creators in the industry. Artist extraordinaire Andy Kubert. Batman. Here, for your continued reading pleasure, are two more pages from the issue -- which concludes the two-part "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" story -- picking up where IGN left off.
