I'm truly hoping things'll get back to normal soon. With the show open, perhaps a bit more free time.
(I actually went OUTSIDE for lunch today! I wasn't hold up in a corner of the office somewhere going over lines)
There will be very little commentary today, mainly because, with a lot of these titles, I haven't been able to read the last issue. Yes, the "need to read" stack is pretty damn huge, at this point. So, before Chad starts whining about no comments....I'll ask you to indulge me for one more week.
Batman and Robin #22 $2.99
Art by PATRICK GLEASON & MICK GRAY
Cover by PATRICK GLEASON
1:10 Variant cover by GENE HA
"Dark Knight, White Knight," part three of three! As The White Knight makes his final, bright stand against the darkness and corruption of Gotham City, Batman and Robin find themselves trapped in a war of good and evil . . . but no matter who wins, the Dark Knight's city will surely suffer!
I can't even remember what's happening in this book, anymore.
Booster Gold #43 $2.99
Art and cover by CHRIS BATISTA and RICH PERROTTA
Coming to grips with all he's seen and done, Booster Gold makes the biggest decision of all times – do it for the glory . . . or just do it. Is this the start of a new Booster?
The Flash #10 (Flashpoint) $2.99
Art and cover by FRANCIS MANAPUL
1:10 Variant cover by SCOTT KOLINS
The prelude to next summer's FLASHPOINT event continues! The new speedster known as Hot Pursuit has arrived on his Cosmic Motorcycle, but what terrible warning has he brought with him? The FLASHPOINT is closing in, and it looks like no one will be safe!
Here's a way to see how far behind this book is. It's sporting the "unified" cover that was on the whole DC line, what? Two months ago?
I can't wait until the one shows up on The Dark Knight, sometime next year.
You're right. I'm ignoring the whole "Flashpoint" business...because it makes my ass ache.
Red Robin #22 $2.99
Art by FREDDIE WILLIAMS II
Cover by GUILLEM MARCH

After putting Red Robin through physical and emotional trials, have they found the city's salvation? What is the one thing they learn about Tim Drake that might change their minds?

Great. A Gotham City Sirens crossover...Way to remind me why I dropped that book.
