Preview Monday: BATMAN ETERNAL #30 and VERTIGO CMYK...

By Clark Bull Monday, October 27th, 2014

Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at BATMAN ETERNAL #30 and VERTIGO CMYK QUARTERLY: YELLOW #1.

The last time Deacon Blackfire took control of Gotham City, Batman nearly died...How will the city fare now that he wields unspeakable power? Was the plan all along to unleash The Spectre? Does it have any connection to the shadowy figure leading Joker’s Daughter through the tunnels beneath Arkham? And, continuing from last week’s BATMAN ETERNAL #29, what did The Riddler’s coded message mean? (“Arkham is just a piece of the plan. If you can read this you are smart enough to know our foe.”) Penny-Two cracked the code, but the message is meant specifically for Batman! Scripted by Ray Fawkes and illustrated by Fernando Pasarin, BATMAN ETERNAL #30 is on sale this Wednesday.

Then, VERTIGO CMYK QUARTERLY: YELLOW #1 arrives just in time for fall, pumpkin picking, changing leaves and candy corn! Take in the crisp autumn air with some of the best talent in comics for an experiment in word association only VERTIGO can deliver! VERTIGO CMYK QUARTERLY: YELLOW #1, containing stories by Steve Orlando, Marguerite Bennett, Gerard Way, Fabio Moon, Diego Agrimbau. João M. P. Lemos, Matt Miner, Benjamin Read, and Toril Orlesky, with artwork by Philip Bond, Bill Sienkiewicz, Lucas Varela, Emilio Utrera, Taylan Kurtulus, Christian Wildgoose, João M. P. Lemos, and Toril Orlesky, hits shelves on Wednesday.
