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…

Like the last issue of the Brave and the Bold I reviewed, this comic was written by J.Michael Straczynski and the art and cover was by Jesus Saiz.

If you are interested in helping review more DCU books that feature the Bat-family, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And now on with the review-Dustin
The Brave and the Bold is one of DC’s most…
