The artwork depicted here is very reminiscent of Alex Ross, though I'm unsure whether he illustrated this or not. What struck me about this one is how similar, if not exactly, the Joker's depiction is to Heath's Joker. Heath has truly left his mark on the character, as we shall see in the next image taken from Lee Bermejo in Azzarello's "Joker." This image to me is so iconic and terrifying as Joker stands with a hostage and a swarm of thugs overwhelming, seemingly, our Dark Knight.

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…

Most of you may be aware that today marks the day for the historic launch of DC Comics' relaunch of the entire line of superheroes. Last night at comic shops all over the country, midnight releases were held for not only Flashpoint #5, but the first of the New 52, Justice League #1. I remember sitting in one of the DC Universe panels at C2E2 and listening to them hype up Flashpoint. I just kept thinking this is the same line they say every time there is an event. Brian Azzarello was in attendance and said a specific line…

After the big reveal at the end of Knight of Vengeance #2, I wasn't sure how Brian Azzarello was going to top that issue. In my less than humble opinion, he managed to tie it all up in the best way possible.
The issue opens with Batman storming in to the house, desperate to stop Martha. He sees the scene set…

Examining Dr. Wayne Part 2
