Change comes to everything, even Shipper Spotlight. As I have covered each book through issue six, and several books do not have much progression from issue to issue, Shipper Spotlight will be undergoing a facelift. Two to three Shippers will be covered, romantic or not, and the schedule will change to a less rigid bimonthly schedule, depending on how much progression or development we see happen.
To usher in this new face of Shipper Spotlight, I will have a guest reviewer this month! Please welcome Chris Kiser, reviewer…

The Source revealed their next set of three things that you need to know, this time focusing on the Birds of Prey. They also showed off some art from issue four.
1. Batgirl is back on the team. Sure, Barbara Gordon (a.k.a. Batgirl) was reluctant at first. She didn’t necessarily want to be hanging out with a gang of outlaws (see next “Thing to Know #2”), and she has serious doubts about at least one member of team (see “Thing to Know…

Newsarama posed a very simple question to a number of the writers involved in the relaunch taking place this September.
If you could give fans one (or more!) clue about what's coming in your corner of the Batman universe, what would you say?
The following are ten clues at what we can expect or least think about until then.
#10 – From Batman writer Scott Snyder:
"Bruce feels he has been away too much over the past year and decides to reinvest in Gotham — both as…

DC has released their solicitations for September and although there are few differences from the announcements that were released last week, there are a couple of changes.
Be here for the start of a new era for The Dark Knight from writer Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE, BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM) and artist Greg Capullo (Spawn)! A series of brutal killings hints at an ancient conspiracy, and Batman learns that Gotham City is deadlier than he knew.

So rumor had it that DC was supposed to announce the titles of all the Bat-books today. Well, that rumor ended up being true as twelve titles were named between IGN and DC's The Source. Let's take a look at what we can expect from The Batman Universe come September.
First up, IGN and DC announced that the main Batman series, Detective Comics and Batman, would be getting renumbered back to #1. They announced the creators attached to each project as well. For Detective Comics, Tony Daniel will once again be handling writing and art duties as he has…
