The Return Of Damian Wayne As Super Robin – And Other Thoughts About DC Comics' Solicitations For January 2015

A new year! And new changes!


Damian appears to have returned – as if anyone expected that he wouldn't – and appears to be coming back with superpowers in Batman And Robin #38. Bulletproof?

The team of Batman and Robin are together again! But what is the new dynamic for this crimefighting duo now that Damian has super powers of his own?


We get the debut of Bluebird in Batman Eternal #42, the new DC Comics character based on a young cosplayer's creation that is a legal suit just waiting to happen in twenty years time if Marc Toberoff has his way….

You've been waiting for the debut of Bluebird – and here it is, though this story may not have a happy ending!

Or not.


Scott Snyder wasn't allowed to cut off Alfred Pennyworth's hands in Batman: Death Of The Family. In Batman #38 is he returning to that theme with this kind of imagery?


While Superman's powers appear to be going a little … haywire in Superman #38?

An extra-sized special issue of the world's greatest hero brings in the New Year with a new costume, new powers and new friends and enemies! The epic team of Geoff Johns, John Romita Jr. and Klaus Janson conclude their first arc with twist after twist that will send Superman onto a new path and force Clark Kent to making a shocking decision! Plus: John Romita Jr. draws Batman!


Fables: The World Among Us #1 is a comic book based on a video game based on a comic based on fairy tales. Somehow the universe has not collapsed.

Even before the first issue of FABLES, there were stories to be told, shadowy avenues to explore, and lives hanging in the balance! Bigby Wolf has seen plenty in his time as Sheriff of Fabletown…but nothing can prepare him for this…

It all starts with a simple domestic disturbance. But when Bigby learns that his old nemesis, the Woodsman who has an axe to grind, is part of the scene, things go downhill fast. And how will Bigby and Snow White keep their heads long enough to crack the case when they get caught up in a grisly murder mystery?



And Grayson #6 pits Dick against the Midnighter. Did you ever expect to see such a thing?

It's the battle you never thought you'd see, as Grayson goes toe to toe with the Midnighter!

Please resist from the more obvious jokes.

Oh and Ice joins the Justice League 3000 in #13 as the book goes further to recreating the classic DeMatteis/Giffen League… with more to come.

Winter's coming to the future, and with it comes the frost queen herself: Ice! But is she the same hero the Justice League once knew? Maybe reuniting with old friends will warm her soul…or perhaps she just needs to create a little Fire!

But no Coffin Hill… a skip month? Or something else?
