Oops! DC Comics Released Batman #130 Preview By Mistake (Spoilers)

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool ran a preview for Batman #130 released by DC Comics, pointing out that it served as a direct spoiler for any cliffhanger for Batman #129. Worked out what that cliffhanger could be. And wondered what DC Comics were playing at.

Well, it turns out it was a mistake. The following missive was forwarded to Bleeding Cool. "Hey, reaching out to you about preview files you were sent for Batman #130, on sale December 6. Unfortunately, they were sent to you with the wrong embargo date; the correct date should have been Wednesday, November 2, to follow the release of next week's Batman #129. I do have preview files for #129 available now and can send them over; if you've posted the art and covers from #130, would it be possible to reschedule that post for next Wednesday and post a #129 preview today? Apologies for this inconvenience, thanks!"

AIPTComics have taken down their version, but Gamesradar still have theirs up. But for who knows how long? So for reference, below shows the newly released preview to Batman #129, in which Failsafe rules Gotham, Batman recovers with Aquaman in Atlantis (much to the chagrin of other Atlanteans) and Failsafe works out where Batman is via a process of Justice League response elimination. And then a look at the preview to Batman #130 again, just without any of our sarcastic commentary from before.
