Earlier today we covered Batman and Detective Comics, adding them to the master list of DC’s 52 titles. What was forgotten about at the time was that Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason are still planned to handle Batman and Robin (which has Damian on the cover), and David Finch’s often delayed Dark Knight will be around too.
Announced this afternoon, however, are three more Bat titles.
Batwoman by J.H. Williams and Amy Reeder, for instance, is finally happening.
The highly-anticipated new series from the multiple award-winning creative team of J.H. Williams III, Haden Blackman and Amy Reeder begins in BATWOMAN #1.
Then there’s the controversial new Batgirl title, which while written by Gail Simone….features Barbra Gordon as Batgirl on the cover. Babs who is infinitely a better character as Oracle than she ever was as Batgirl.
Batgirl’s going to have to face the city’s most horrifying new villains as well as dark secrets from her past in BATGIRL #1, the stunning debut issue from fan-favorite writer Gail Simone and artists Ardian Syaf and Vicente Cifuentes.
Then we’ve got Judd Winick finally showing up to the DC party with his Catwoman series, which seems to be replacing Gotham City Sirens.
Meet Catwoman. She’s addicted to the night. Addicted to shiny objects. Addicted to Batman. Most of all, Catwoman is addicted to danger. She can’t help herself, and the truth is – she doesn’t want to. She’s good at being bad, and very bad at being good. Find out more about what makes Catwoman tick in CATWOMAN #1, written by Judd Winick and illustrated by Guillem March.
And then finally….meet the new Birds of Prey.
The Birds of Prey are Gotham City’s covert ops team, taking down the villains other heroes can’t touch. Mystery novelist ands comics writer Duane Swierczynski teams up with Jesus Saiz for BIRDS OF PREY #1, the first issue of the hard-hitting new series.
