COVER SHOTS: The Best From DC Comics' February 2013 Solicitations

Sure February 2013 sees Grant Morrison step from the Super-train, but as the Joker would say, 'Is that any reason to frown?' Well yes, it is. However, back that up with a few new series and an omnibus of Jack Kirby's DC work, and smiles are back in fashion (man, that Super Powers comic kicked butt!) The top covers of their Feb solicits are;

COVER OF THE MONTH: J.H. WILLIAMS III - BATWOMAN #17

(Muzzles you before you can comment on the predictability of choosing Batwoman/J.H. Williams III as the best cover). Yes, IADW might be breaking new ground here choosing a Batwoman cover by J.H. Williams III, but that's IADW (muffled comments). Yip, that's IADW.

DC says: It's the massive conclusion to the current storyline as Batwoman and Wonder Woman struggle to defeat Medusa and a horde of villains! The start of a surprising new status quo for Batwoman!

Red Hood and the Outlaws #17

Damn you Bat-books and your cool cover hogging goodness (grabs tissue box). While I never thought I'd post about Red Hood and the Outlaws here (pulls out handfuls of tissue) they went and put Bats holding Red Hood, like he did when he 'died' as Robin reflected in blood on the cover (blows). I mean is there a dry eye in the house?

Batman: Arkham Unhinged #11
Mico Suayan 
Two-Face needs a major story again. People are forgetting why this dude is so cool! While over here he is defense and judge in the Joker's trial, lets get the coin toss back and menacing Gotham again! That Mico is mean. Marvel - get ready to steal this guy!

  1. Batwoman always looks cool. And here she manages to look cool AND hot. That's not a cover, it's a page worthy of blowing up wall size and papering it to you dining room (It even matches my paint).
    Maybe I need to read the Red Hood storyarc. I have trouble emotionally connecting to the prospect of him dying (again). Unless you count me high fiving myself (again). But it is neat what they did with the cover. Symmetry. Dig it.

  2. Actually Random - I think that would be a poster best used to ward stray hands from Dan's Cookie Jar. Or doorsales men off knocking on Sunday mornings!

    She (Batwoman) definitely doesn't look like someone you want to cross!

  3. That would work too. I was thinking more along the lines of..."Eat your veggies or else!" But hey, whatever you need.
