We're in a giving mood here at The Source today. Since Batman Group Editor Michael Marts was kind enough to shoot over a look at some of the upcoming March Batman covers, we didn't want to make you guys wait until the solicited covers hit on Monday afternoon. So, here for your mid-week enjoyment are the covers to March's issues of BATMAN, RED ROBIN and AZRAEL. [gallery link="file"]
There's a ton of good stuff coming out of the Bat-office lately, so checking my inbox each morning is like getting a bit of Christmas early. The spread below, from BATMAN #694 by writer/artist Tony Daniel, is one such example. Thanks to Batman Group Editor Michael Marts and his able assistant Janelle Siegel for sharing the goodness.
Pandemonium breaks out at the inaugural ceremony of the new Arkham Asylum. Will the combined forces of Oracle, Huntress and Catwoman be enough help for Batman? Plus, the debuts of both the Gotham Shield Committee and Black Mask's Ministry of Death in writer/artist Tony Daniel's second issue. What more do you want? How about some pages? We can accommodate that, sure. BATMAN #693 hits 11/11. [gallery link="file"]
In the spirit of my favorite time of the year…here are a few things that scare me. THE FLAMINGO. This guy has death and danger written all over him. He rides a motorcycle and rips people’s faces off for fun. Oh yeah, and to top it all off, he’s dressed head-to-toe in pink. What’s not to be afraid of? If Batman & Robin thought they had their hands full with Red Hood & Scarlet, well, they haven’t seen anything yet. Check out the Flamingo in all of his pink and face-ripping glory in BATMAN & ROBIN #6.
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? [gallery link="file"]
That headline kind of speaks for itself, huh? We'd elaborate more on Tony's first story arc, but why spoil the fun? Plus, you don't want to read my ramblings. You want to see some nice art. Tony Daniel. Writing and drawing Batman. Sneak peek. Now. BATMAN #692 hits in October.
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.
