A team-up, a death-match, and a swarm of rabid bats are all coming your way this week! Justice League 3000 #1 also comes out, but I’m not going to be reviewing it. Update: Justice League 3000 #1, like Batman Black And White, has been postponed until December 11th.

Here are the review comics coming out this week, December 4th, graded on a scale of my own anticipation.

I was relatively unimpressed by last month’s video game-themed issue that saw Batman fight a robot/hologram/whatever version of Nightwing. But the final page reveal of (this is going to be a spoiler if you haven’t read issue #1, but if you haven’t read the first chapter of a story but are reading a synopsis for issue #2 then you’re really just asking for trouble) Mongul being behind it all has piqued my curiosity.

Anticipation Level: Interested

This whole Man-Bat storyline has been simmering for a long time now. Several months of backup stories have been building to this moment when a swarm of genetically altered killer bats as well as She-Bat storm Gotham City. I hope this pays off.

BATWING #26

Written by JUSTIN GRAY and JIMMY PALMIOTTI
Art by EDUARDO PANSICA and JULIO FERREIRA
Cover by DARWYN COOKE
On sale DECEMBER 4 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T

Anticipation Level:  Ambivalent 

Luke Fox (whose name I always write out as Luke “Cage” first and I always have to go back and change it) has to take off the armor and enter a death tournament in Italy. I honestly can’t remember what happened in the last issue (#23– before Zero Year shenanigans) for us to end up in this situation, but that synopsis sounds like it could be fun.

GRAPHIC NOVEL WATCH!

Nightwing: Death of the Family, Vol. 3

The Batman/Judge Dredd Collection also comes out in softcover. You can go read my review of the hardcover right here and now at Batman News.
