Not a bad cover.
Miller said the makeup on his chin is similar to what Navy Seals wear.
Jamal does good work. I like the new Batman design. Very Elseworlds-ish.
Superman looks more like Cavill there.
Jamal is on this book so I am defiantly going to pick this up. But I would have picked it up anyways. However with this book dropping for 96th to 99 this might be the only season we get. Maybe one more if we're lucky.
The cover art is by Mico Suayan. His signature is on Superman's cape.
Oh really? That's a new idea: giving Batman a camo look to his makeup, based from the film Batman looks with the eye makeup, but extended. That's kinda neat, giving Batman's war on crime a true war on crime.
I'm wondering about the white lenses; from the mask, from his eyes, or just there and don't ask like the regular comic version?
Yeah, someone on Twitter was like "why does batman have black facepaint" and he was like "It's not that -- it's similar to what navy SEALS have" which is a very interesting idea. Some may say the costume is terrible, but I'm loving it. I'm really interested in seeing where they go in this storyline. I'm buying both Digital+Print.
I didn't even notice any white lenses because I'm just frankly used to it always being there on Batman. However -- since Smallville is kinda grounded in reality (basically it's supposed to be real life like us watching TV is what I mean, you know?) I wouldn't put it past them to make the white lenses have some sort of meaning/explanation.
ok, in that picture Bats looks good, but **** in that debut pic....it just looked horrible lol
Some neat stuff on batman suit and why he looks as he does. I can't wait to see where story goes. As for ranking even if it is diping if they still get figures they are happy for print/digital sales I don't think we have to be in oh its doomed and will be dropped in next issue stage.
I kind of don't like how long episodes are, since it's supposed to be a TV show format they feel like they would be longer than 40 mins. However -- BQM said Eps. 3/4 will be shorter than Detective/Guardian.
I am hoping they release a mega-sized Season trade or at least a trade with breaks inbetween like an actual show does.
We will probably have a trade once we got a few full story archs done. Also is his artists from the cover taking over from perez or is it just another variant cover artist like kat has done?
I think Cat Staggs is taking a break or something because that's the official art for #6. I don't think Perez is leaving but I'd like him to improve.
I hope perez isn't leaving he has nailed characters/actors well.
I don't think "nail" is the term I'd use. I just can't imagine Tom Welling's voice on the Superman I see in the book.
The digital issues are doing well. I think if they keep selling well, we won't have to worry about the print issues much. At least that's what I think, I don't know how DC looks at their digital stuff.
Digital will be outselling print in the next 12-18 months according to some industry analysts so if the comic is doing well in digital then we should be good to go.
Ya as long as either/both formats are selling at figures that make dc happy we have nothing to worry about. And most companies are trying to get digital bigger/wide spread. Which is good and all. But for me personally I like to have the actual print book.
Changes afoot for smallville batman sidekick:
Well that's better I rather have Babs as Batgirl than Steph as Nightwing.
Question though I wonder if she will be changed to batgirl or have barb as knightwing.
I hope it's not true. Dammit! Stephanie just can't catch a frickin break!! apparently neither can her fans
I might want to avoid all Batman forums for a few months. I feel sorry for all Stephanie Brown fans. The one comic where people could have seen Stephanie and DC decided to change it. I'm a huge fan of Barbara Gordon as well as Dick Grayson(wanted to see him as Robin or Nightwing in Smallville but happy that Stephanie was Nightwing and made sense with all the other Smallville Heroes changes)
This is really stupid. Lowers my chances of hype now.
Well it sucks about the change for stephaine but its still cool forr barb.
