Upcoming Comics: October 30th, 2013

There are only 2 bat-comics out this week. One is an over-sized annual that deals with the relationship between Batgirl & Nightwing and the other is the start of an all new mini-series starring none other than Damian Wayne. Oh, and Death of the Family finally hits shelves!

Here are the review comics coming out this week, October 30th, graded on a scale of my own anticipation.

Anticipation Level:   Interested

The first part of a mini-series about the possible future in which Damian Wayne made his deal with the devil and donned the cape and cowl as seen in Grant Morrison’s Batman #666. I’m intrigued, what with the character’s co-creator involved once again but at the same time I didn’t totally enjoy Andy Kubert’s previous writing attempt, Joker #1.

Talk about long overdue! It’s about darn time that Nightwing got his own annual and this over-sized issue promises to explore the relationship between Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon dating all the way back to Dick’s tenure as the Boy Wonder. Interestingly, this annual will also serve as a tie-in to Batgirl: Wanted, a frequently interrupted arc going on in Gail Simone’s title in which Barbara is wanted by the police for the murder of Jim Gordon’s son.

Graphic Novel Watch!

DC One Million Omnibus — I remember some of the stories from this 1999 event being pretty cool, but it’ll cost $99.99 to know for sure if these tales of futuristic superheroes are as good as I recall.

Deadshot: Beginnings — A collection of 1980’s Deadshot stories from his limited series, Batman, and Detective comics.

Batman, Vol. 3: Death of the Family — This should’ve been out at the beginning of the month but the specially designed cover caused a bit of a printing delay. You see, when you peel back the dust jacket you’ll actually see what Joker looks like without any skin! I found Death of the Family to be a solid Joker story with a lackluster ending and superfluous tie-ins.
