Which is why I assume he took issue with that cover. It likely crosses the line into exploitation territory a bit more than he wanted.
The Detective Comics #1000 solicitation is all sorts of awesome. But it ships March 27th. Brexit happens March 29th. I’m going to be really conflicted that week!
Sweet! I was on the fence but now that Ellis has a story in there I am definitely buying this issue.
This looks fantastic. And I’m pumped for the book if the rumors are true that Batman will be going on a worldwide fight against the League of Assassins.

Don’t think I can turn this one down.
I have this in singles, but this is where I noticed, in a few issues in particular, Tynion IV coming into his own.
I am tempted. A Tynion shelf is starting to emerge on my bookcases, it would be remiss of me to neglect this. I can sell of the singles to part fund it.
What was the follow up to Batman Eternal? Was it Batman and Robin Eternal?
Yes. It wasn’t very good.
Edit to add: although it does set up quite a bit of Tynion’s subsequent Detective Comics run. However, it is very much a Grayson story, with less charm and more inconsistent writing and art.
I remember reading it but not enjoying it as much
I bet this is the new name for the Deluxe size. $50 for 12 issues is a slight increase but not incredible.
Edit: Didn’t read before that’s it’s also slipcased.
Is a shame they have put such a run of unstartling writers on Green Arrow since rebirth. The character deserves better. It’s been one of the lower points of rebirt.
This is basically how Dubliners pronounce ‘rebirth’
Wasn’t the Percy run any good? I’ve had it on my wish list for a rainy day.
I read somewhere that it’s possibly going to start over as Green Arrow and Black Canary.
I thought it started well and then lost it’s way
Hopefully they get the right creative team in for it
