Coming out of the retailer sessions with DC Comics ahead of Emerald City Comic Con are a few interesting pointers. Might be worth a spoiler warning, though it's probably the kind of thing they'll be talking about at ECCC.
One is that Batman Eternal, the new weekly series from DC Comics, will begin with a family betrayal. That of the psychopathic James Gordon Jr against his father, Commissioner Gordon.
Might that explain the handcuffs?
Don't dare miss the start of the Bat-story so big it's going to take every week of the month to tell! A massive cast of Gotham City's best (and worst) examines the relationship between Batman, his allies and his city. In this debut issue, Commissioner James Gordon is caught on the wrong side of the law!
