This November, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will be joined by 11 additional creative teams to celebrate (or commiserate) the effects felt by Zero Year. Bruce Wayne is not the only hero getting a secret origin revealed this fall. Events from the pages of Batman will be spilling into the following titles for one issue:
Action Comics (by Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder) #25
Batgirl (by Marguerite Bennett, Fernando Pasarin, and Jonathan Glapion) #25
Batwing (by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, Eduardo Pansica, and Julio Fererra) #25
Birds of Prey (by Christy Marx, Romano Molenaar, and Jonathan Glapion) #25
Catwoman (by John Layman and Aaron Lopresti) #25
Nightwing (by Kyle Higgins and Will Conrad) #25
Detective Comics (by John Layman and Jason Fabok) #25
The Flash (by Francis Manapul, Brian Buccellato, Chris Sprouse, and Karl Story) #25
Green Lantern Corps (by Van Jensen, Robert Venditti, Bernard Chang) #25
Green Arrow (by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino) #25
Red Hood and the Outlaws (by James Tynion IV, Julius Gopez, and Ray McCarthy) #25
So there you have it. The only thing we know about these special “one-shots” is that they are all going from 2.99 cover price to 3.99 for this month only and that they all tie (directly or indirectly) into the main Snyder/Capullo storyline in the pages of Batman. It is also worth noting that issue 25 of the main Batman title in the month of November is going from 3.99 cover price to 4.99, also for this month only. Other things that previews have given us include, but are not limited to: the introduction of the New 52 character Anarky, a lost tale of Jason Todd’s connection to the original Red Hood Gang, the introduction of the New 52 character Killer Moth, a story of Dick Grayson before he became Robin, and several other stories featuring now classic heroes before they don their famous capes and cowls. There are also several creative team changes worth noting, if only for one issue.
So what do you all think? Do these additional titles intrigue you? Or are you just going to stick with the main story? Will you be trying out new comics? And do the creative team switch-ups turn you onto the crossovers or off of them completely?
See you all in November!
