Premier aperçu :





Oh, ça s’annonce très joli tout ça !

Ouais. Y a des noms qui me parlent fortement.
Et je suis curieux de voir ce que va en faire Tradd Moore.

Si ça continue comme ça, DC ne va proposer que du Batman et affilié

Du très beau monde (Arcudi ! :heart:), mais un peu réchauffé.

DC pour moi temporise en sortant des choses liés à ses succès, en attendant de trouver quoi faire dans le main universe (le retour de Sweet tooth et American Vampire, les relances de projets dans les tiroirs depuis un bout, la multiplication de tie-ins à l’event actuel, là où Marvel en a enlevé, …)

Ce Batman BW me semble aller dans le même sens de Greatest Hits Actuels.

C’est ce que Jim Lee a annoncé. :wink:

La couverture du #5 par Lee Weeks (qui écrit et dessine une histoire dans le même numéro) :


Ben oui, Lee Weeks. Qu’est-ce que j’aime son boulot!!!

Il bonifie les histoires, c’est dingue. Les derniers travaux de Tom King sur Batman… Des claques.

Qui n’aime pas Lee Weeks



Ben qui alors?

Personne, il est trop fort
