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.
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.
Batman drops in on his former sidekick, Jason Todd, who's been imprisoned in Arkham Asylum for several months, known only under the name of his anti-hero identity, The Red Hood. Todd's prepping for a transfer to a lower-security prison, and this could mean trouble for Batman... and for that prison's inmates. The first part of Judd Winick's "The Streets Run Red" starts this week in BATMAN AND ROBIN #23. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
We’re fans of all mediums here on The Source – especially if they involve some of our favorite characters, like Batman. So a game like BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, the upcoming sequel to the popular BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM is a no brainer. Batman? Fighting against some of his greatest foes on the streets of Gotham? Yeah, we’ll take it.
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?
