This is for the issue coming tomorrow. Use spoiler tages for spoilers and if you wanna show scans from the issue, POST THEM!
 
cant wait for this :)
detective #817 was such a great start for this storyline
 
am i the only one who thinks they shouldve actually waited until the end of infinite crisis before releasing another batman/superman/wonder woman comic? i wouldnt have minded going 2 months without a batman. plus that way we (the reader) can feel like theyve been gone a long time too. it just feels wierd to see them sayin "welcome back" and he hasnt gone anywhere yet- expect for that funky ending at the end of last months issue.

but other than that....looks good!:p
 
Spoilers Spoilers Maybe.

Great issue. The only ***** i have is that the artist wasn't consistant with Robin. One panel he had the new "R", the next it was the old one. Like this:

The next like this:
Robin2.jpg

Sometimes he had spikes on his gloves, sometimes he didn't. Consistancy should be important to an artist IMO.
Overall I loved it. This might not seem like a big thing, but I've been reading Batman comics since 1988, and I've really missed seeing this:

Batman, Robin and chilling with Gordon in his office. Perfect.
 
Man, I just got back form my Comic Shop and the guy forgot to give me my Batman, now I've gotta' go back tomorrow. Dang it!:mad:
 
@ Fledermaus:

Could you maybe scan a Ivy pic?
And could you or somebody else say something about her?
That would be nice...
 
Same old Ivy. Talks about man destroying nature, Has Lucius and some other powerful men held hostage. She' more powerful now. And suprised to see Batman. She doesn't explain how she got more powerful.And something else i really like: Batman and Robin working as a team. The more i read and think about it, this is the best new issue I've read in a LONG time, and I loved "Under the Hood". Batman 651 and Detective 817 remind me of Batman when I was a kid (about 1990 to Knightfall). Great
Enjoy.

Thanks a lot Fledermaus!!! :up:

This is the Ivy I want to see :D
Can't wait to get this issue myself.
And hope her retur will be explained in 52 or another Batman title...
 
she looks great. i like her over jim lee's version. still dont know why her hair was alive too??
 
it had a nice old school feel to it- batman and robin to the rescue! they meet and talk to comissioner in his office.
 
I'm getting a Batman: TAS vibe from reading those scans.
 
I have a question: How did Ivy become all green and plant like in the first place?? Has she mutated or something??
 
I'm not a 100% on this, but I think Jim Lee did it in Hush, and the other artist just followed suit. Is it weird that I think she's hot green? especially here.

She looks delightfully evil there.
 
The green look predates Hush... goes back to when TAS underwent redesigns and she went from flesh colored to pale green ish.
 
This issue built upon things nicely. It's good to see Batman and Robin functioning as a cohesive unit and tackling the bad guy (or girl). There's still the whole mystery about what's transpired through the past year and a little cliffhanger at the end. You know Harvery is going to figure back into this at some point. I like how this is progressing.
 
Really digging the changes in Ivy's personality and that scene with Bats and Robin chilling with Gordon has made picking Batman up a priority for me
 
Great issue. It was great to just read a story where Batman and Robin work together to take down one of their rogues. Not to mention them actually hanging with Gordon in his office. Very old school. Very good. This face two face arc is going to be awesome. I can't wait until we get some Bullock and some Dent.
 
That pic......perfect.

I mean, Jim Gordon, Batman and Robin.....just chilling in GCPD HQ. Classic.
