Blackest Night

We lead again with DC’s crossover of the year – Blackest Night! With “only” 6 books tying in, I can say I admire DC for their restraint. Anyone remember Atlantis Attacks – The Punisher? You know what I mean.

Shipping October 14: Blackest Night: Batman #3 (of 3), $2.99 Green Lantern Corps #41 $2.99

Shipping October 21: Blackest Night #4 (of 8), $3.99 Blackest Night: Superman #3 (of 3), $2.99

Shipping October 28: Blackest Night: Titans #3 (of 3), $2.99 Green Lantern #28 $2.99

Final Crisis: Aftermath – Who cares? Was this really still going on?

Batman:

Batman: Widening Gyre #3 (of 6) – Written by Kevin Smith. Should sell very well with little regard to quality. I’m not saying he can’t write a story well, I’m saying he doesn’t always choose to. Ships October 28, $2.99

Batman & Robin #5 – Grant Morrison. Nuff said. Ships October 28, $2.99

Azrael, etc. The new Azrael ongoing series starts with a two part story in Batman Annual #27 and followed in Detective Comics Annual #11. The new #1 ships the next week. Batman Annual ships October 7, $4.99. Detective Comics Annual ships October 14, $4.99. Azrael #1 ships October 21, $2.99. This entire story is brought to you by Fabian Nicieza.

Arkham Reborn #1 (of 3). Rebuilding Arkham Asylum is such a great idea. I mean, nothing weird or messed up every happens there and no one ever escapes. Ships October 28, $2.99

Batman: The Unseen #1, #2 (of 5). I always did like Kelley Jones’s art but was never sure about Doug Moench’s scripting. I think I shall pass on this. #1 ships October 7, issue #2 ships October 21. Both $2.99.

Batman double ships this month as well. #691 on October 14, #692 on October 28. Both $2.99.
