This weekend, while many of us were walking the WonderCon walk (hopefully in our most comfortable shoes), plenty of writers and journalists were hopping on news sites like IGN and Comic Book Resources to talk the WonderCon talk.
We spent the weekend surrounded by thousands of amazing people who love comics, we just posted the latest episode of our webseries devoted entirely to the world of comics, and now we’re looking ahead to tomorrow where we’ll be treated to a big stack of brand new, hot-off-the-presses…COMICS!
Yes, after taking a few weeks off, we’re back to break down what’s in store for you this Wednesday from DC Comics and Vertigo. And what’s in store for you is the debut issue of DC Comics’ first weekly comic series since the start of The New 52.
With a title like Forever Evil, you know you’re in for some devastating, far reaching results. But for Batman, it seems like those results may hit painfully close to home. From the very first issue, things haven’t looked good for Nightwing. The one hero to be held captive by the Crime Syndicate, the series began with his identity being revealed to the world, and since then Dick Grayson has remained under lock and key. But eventually, you knew the series would return to his story, and with this week’s issue #6, it has.
In the world of DC Comics, you don’t need super powers to look into your future. You just need Scott Snyder and Dustin Nguyen. In this week’s eagerly awaited BATMAN #28, we take a break from the ongoing “Zero Year,” and jump from the past deep into the future with a special standalone “spoiler” issue that looks at what lies in store for Batman in the months ahead.
This is a big year for our favorite Dark Knight, with a new animated movie on its way, DLC for the latest Arkham game just around the corner and an ambitious weekly comic all set to make its debut. Yes, there’s much to look forward to this year if you’re a Batman fan. Like tomorrow.
