Robins in cages. I’ve had this idea in my head for ages. I can’t believe it took this long to actually churn it out. Mnghhh…

Somehow Dick’s loving it. Probably nostalgic due to all his years spent as the Boy Hostage growing up.

These are four covers for Bat-related titles coming out in November.

On the concept alone (and with some solid art to back it up), my favorite cover of these belongs to Red Hood and the Outlaws #3 (by Kenneth Rocafort & Blond). Jason, Kory and Roy all facing off against their dark, tortured pasts looks like a damned interesting story. More than almost any other cover this month, this one makes me anxious to read the story within. The look on Roy’s face as the junkie version of himself straddles him and chokes him with his own bow is just so sad. There’s so much going on in this cover that I can’t wait to see play out on the pages that follow.

Hi, angry guys on the cover of Penguin: Pain and Prejudice #2 (by Szymon Kudranski). Will you be less angry if I say you’re my second favorite cover of this group for November? No? No. I didn’t think so. But you are. Kudranski definitely draws some gorgeous ugly-art. A lot of unpleasant, intense emotion gets conveyed in his art that works perfect for the subject.

Nightwing #3 (by Eddy Barrows & JP Mayer) gets third place because of the moon. There’s a lot of nice art in this image but the detailing in the moon is just really cool. The sense of light that it gives off. The fine lines and shadows on its surface are so well done. Dick’s looking a bit scowly though. Perhaps he thought he was posing for the Angry Penguin cover. Everyone else seems to be having a great time at the circus. Or maybe he’s just developed clown issues in the years since he was a trapeze artist?

Last, but definitely still a nice piece of art, is the cover to Batwing #3 (by Ben Oliver). I love the heavy brush stroke effect throughout the cover. The very defined lines and colors give it a really unique style. It’s a very simple image but interestingly stylized.

These are the solicits for the Bat-related titles coming out in November.

Batwing #3 (written by Judd Winick): Massacre’s crusade of blood continues, and the only one standing in his way is Batwing, who finds himself fighting alongside a legendary hero of Africa: the mighty Thunder Fall! As more heroes are targeted by this madman, the mystery of why begins to unfold, as does the story of Batwing’s dark past.

Nightwing #3 (written by Kyle Higgins): The Big Top comes to the Windy City! After the massive events of issue 2, the circus heads to Chicago – and Dick Grayson is along for the ride! But as Nightwing puts pressure on ex-Haley connections in search for answers about his past, one lead may be far too explosive to handle! Be here as Nightwing takes his quest for the truth to the Second City!

Penguin: Pain & Prejudice #2 (written by Gregg Hurwitz): Writer Gregg Hurwitz and artist Szymon Kudranski continue their dark examination of the Penguin in PENGUIN: PAIN AND PREJUDICE. The Penguin runs a vast crime empire that’s always one step away from faltering, thanks to the interference of Batman. How can Penguin keep Batman at bay and maintain the power and image that’s become so important to him? And what dark family secrets is the Penguin hiding?

Red Hood & the Outlaws #3 (written by Scott Lobdell): Red Hood, Arsenal and Starfire enter the Chamber of All to discover what the Untitled wanted – but they’ll need to leave their most cherished memories as collateral! And when you’re a reincarnated sidekick who lets your madon get the better of you, a former addict turned soldier of fortune, and an intergalactic princess who never quite recovered from a childhood spent as a prisoner of war…? Well, there aren’t a lot of cherished memories to choose from! All this as the trio draws ever closer to dealing with a threat that’s already killed the ancient caste of assassins who taught Jason Todd everything he knows about the art of killing!

These are four covers for Bat-related titles coming out in October.

I don’t know that I can call it my “favorite” cover because I certainly don’t enjoy looking at it. But I’d have to say that the cover of Penguin: Pain and Prejudice #1 (by Szymon Kudranski) is the best of this bunch. It’s just a stark, unrelenting closeup of The Penguin and it is not pretty. You only have a view of one of his eyes and you know that eye hates whatever or whoever he’s looking at. The cover is intense, angry and unpleasant. Which pretty accurately captures the subject.

My second favorite would be Batwing #2 (by Ben Oliver). I think the simplicity of this image really works. The clear straight lines and the blurred colors and lines combine nicely. It’s not the most stunning of covers but I think it’s got a great sense of movement.

All boob clips and Red Hood penis aside, there’s a lot of interesting stuff going on in the cover to Red Hood and the Outlaws #2 (by Kenneth Rocafort & Blond). One of those interesting things actually is the Red Hood penis. Pretty much the only thing I really hate about his cover is how they drew Starfire’s abdominal region. I get that she’s an alien, so maybe her ribs don’t work the same as ours but I’m pretty sure that’s just some bad art. The rest of the cover is actually pretty interesting. There’s lots of detail on all the faces and none of the bad guys are the same or are reacting the same. I love Roy biting his lip as he takes aim. That’s probably my favorite detail on this cover… aside from Jason’s dick.

Last, but by no means least, is the cover of Nightwing #2 (by Eddy Barrows & JP Mayer). It’s not a bad piece of art at all and I may even like the execution more than the one I put in the number three slot. I just think it’s a little plain and I’m not a fan of the constant red-eye in Dick’s mask. That said… Dick Grayson’s body, front and center on a cover, is always enjoyable to look at.

These are the solicits for the Bat-related titles coming out in October. Including the new miniseries, “Penguin: Pain and Prejudice”.

Batwing #2 (written by Judd Winick): He is called Massacre, and he brings death. What does the soldier in service of Batman Incorporated do when he’s met his match? When he’s been brought so low and been wounded so badly? What does he do when lost Super Heroes begin turning up as victims? Batwing fights back!

Nightwing #2 (written by Kyle Higgins): When a mysterious assassin targets Dick Grayson, Nightwing must work fast to uncover the killer’s plot before he strikes again. But as Haley’s Circus continues to perform in Gotham City, Dick finds himself torn between two lives: His old one as a circus performer and his new one as a Super Hero. And they may be more connected than he ever realized!

Penguin: Pain and Prejudice #1 (written by Gregg Hurwitz): In this exciting new miniseries from novelist Gregg Hurwitz (You’re Next) and rising star artist Szymon Kudranksi (Spawn), the painful and dark past of one of Batman’s most devious foes is examined. How did young Oswald Cobblepot go from being the apple of his mother’s eye to the leader of underworld gangs and adversary of The Caped Crusader? Find out in PENGUIN: PAIN AND PREJUDICE!

Red Hood and the Outlaws #2 (written by Scott Lobdell): Red Hood is already globe-trotting in an effort to find the ancient assassins behind the slaughter of those who taught him some of his darkest skills… and if Roy and Kori are going to be of any help, well, they’ll just have to tag along – whether Jason wants them to or not!

52 Days of the DCnU: “Red Hood and the Outlaws”

52 Days of the DCnU: Day 8 - Red Hood and the Outlaws
Written by: Scott Lobdell
Art by: Kenneth Rocafort
Release Date: September 21

aka TeamGinger

Oh the sweet precious angsty-ness of it all. Jason. Roy. Could they be any more in need of someone to share their angsty, angsty pain with?

Seriously, though… this title is one of the ones I’m most excited about. I would have never seen this grouping of characters coming if someone had given me a month to think of every possible combination of three characters that I could come up with. Somehow the prospect of these unusual-to-put-together characters interacting with one another sounds fascinating. From the sound of what Lobdell has planned, the book sounds very character driven and focused on building up the individual characters rather than just a team:

"It is a book about people, not about a team. My editor had notes on my second issue asking why Roy and Kory didn’t follow Jason when he left to go do what he’s going to be doing for issue two and three. They are doing their own thing — it wouldn’t occur to them to tag along with Jason. Plus, they are going to be way too busy, neck-deep with their own respective adventures! At least for the first few issues, as the readers get to know and care about them as individuals." - Scott Lobdell, CBR interview

Each character is one that I find interesting on their own. Kory with her incredibly dark and horrific past seems to be able to bring so much hope and positivity to the stories I’ve read with her. Her story with Animal Man and Adam Strange during “52” was what completely won me over. Roy with his drug addiction and temper. And Jason… dude was murdered. By the Joker. With a crowbar… AND a bomb. He’s come back from that (as comic characters tend to do) but I’m really looking forward to seeing him move on from that. I believe Lobdell mentioned that there will be another character involved in this non-team-team but I don’t think there’s any information on who that will be yet.

Can’t wait for this book. As of right at this moment… I’d say it’s in my Top Five Must Read books for September.

And… just saying… I’m soooooooo looking forward to the first time Dick discovers Kory and Roy are now sort of hanging with Jason. AWK-WARD. (It’ll be fun.)
