New releases are still on hold due to Covid-19 and Diamond suspending their shipments, but there is a trade that’s being released digitally, so we wanted to share that information with you. Before we get to that though, we wanted to remind you about our Quarantine Book Club that we started! Last week we discussed Batman: Prey, and this week we’re reading Batman: Ego.
Batman: Ego & Other Tales
Eisner-award winning artist and accomplished writer Darwyn Cooke’s (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER) iconic imagery culminates in this collection of pulse-pounding stories featuring unique visions of Batman and Catwoman. This volume includes his acclaimed EGO one-shot, the original graphic novel SELINA’S BIG SCORE, and stories from the BLACK AND WHITE series and SOLO.
Note: We will only be covering the Ego storyline from this collection as we have plans to cover Catwoman & Batman Black & White at a later date.
Alright, on to this week’s release!
