This is the first in a series to catch up on what else can be found in the DC Digital Store, besides the weekly dosage of TBU related titles, through the end of 2011.
Because of the sheer amount of stuff that is available now, I’ve decided to break this up into various character families and eventually I’ll get to the other DC owned imprints you can find either in the DC store, or over at the Comixology.com store.
And we shall begin with the Big…

Welcome to this new column series, Batman in the New 52, where each week, I will be taking a look at what Batman is up to in DC's new continuity. If you take a look at the spread of titles being published from August 31, 2011, it is clear that DC thinks very highly of their "Batman family" of characters. Of the fifty-two titles in September, eleven of them fall under that banner, and…

We’ve been hearing rumors for weeks, ever since ‘Flashpoint’ #5 was the only issue solicited for release on August 31st, people (mainly BleedingCool.com) have been saying how DC are going to be renumbering their titles. Well I, as I am sure most of you, thought that this was a ridiculous theory; why would DC sabotage their record holding numbers on ‘Action’ and ‘Detective Comics’ even ‘Batman’, ‘Superman’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ have high issue numbers, I believed that if DC was to renumber any books, at least these titles would be safe. But apparently not…
Now I am sure that you…
