TBU Solicits For November 2014


Batman and Robin #36DC has released the following solicitations for November 2014.  October will bring the continuation all current TBU ongoing titles and the addition of one new ongoing title, the already announced Gotham By Midnight.  Batman #36 will be part two of Snyder and Capullo’s Endgame storyline which is billed to be too mysterious for description.  The Robin Rises arc will continue in Batman and Robin leading up to the reveal of a new Robin in December, while Batman deals with viruses and diseases (although, potentially not the same ones) in both Detective Comics and Justice League.

 

November’s weekly titles will see Alfred working with Bane and the potential end of Wayne Enterprises in Batman Eternal as well as a fight between Batman and Batman beyond in the pages of The New 52:  Future’s End.

 

Lastly, November’s TBU solicitations also include DC Comics Essentials: Batman Year One Special Edition #1, another promotionally priced special for DC’s continuing celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary which will include part of the story arc that gave us what most consider to be the definitive Batman origin story.
