Batman #1 and Detective Comics sound awesome

Sooooo my fellow Comic Viners, I need your help; which of the four god damn Batman books do you predict I should be getting?

#5 Posted by Kurrent (14070 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm all over Nightwing and Outlaws

#6 Posted by Bestostero (5618 posts) - - Show Bio

Looking forward to Batgirl the most, but definitely picking up most of those...at least until i have reason not to...

#7 Posted by Wattup (648 posts) - - Show Bio

I kinda wish Batwing was written by the writer of the recent Unknown Soldier series. I've never seen such an amazing take on African life in comics before.

#8 Posted by xposipx (33 posts) - - Show Bio

Detective Comics and Catwoman sound the best to me. We'll see.

#9 Posted by doordoor123 (3721 posts) - - Show Bio

Im only getting Batman, Nightwing, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Batwoman and Batman and Robin out of these. 
Maybes for Batgirl, Birds of Prey and Batwing.

#10 Posted by ambigu0us (41 posts) - - Show Bio

Batwing will probably be the first one to get canceled.

But it has a great writer on it and sounds like itll have a great story. Ive read two interviews on the book.

Hey, T+ to Catwoman? Color me intrigued.

#14 Posted by zombietag (1497 posts) - - Show Bio

the first couple batman book solicitations all sound the same. ill probably pick up batman #1 though.

#15 Posted by ImperiousRix (1069 posts) - - Show Bio

Catwoman and Batwing have be intrigued because of Judd Winick, and I've been waiting for Batwoman to finally come out. 
I think that's gonna do it for me with the Bat family titles.

#16 Posted by pspin (892 posts) - - Show Bio

Nightwing and Batwoman look good
#17 Posted by djotaku (441 posts) - - Show Bio

looks like all the crying about ignoring Batman, Inc in the DC relaunch was for nothing

#18 Posted by U R Sofa King We Todd Did (1124 posts) - - Show Bio

Why does Batman need 4 titles at the onset of the reboot. I thought the point of the reboot was to streamline and attract new readers but they have possibly there most popular character going in 4 sdifferent directions.

#19 Posted by Obi Wan Kenobi! (27658 posts) - - Show Bio

Looking into all of these except Batgirl and BoP

#21 Edited by batman_is_god (1185 posts) - - Show Bio

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
Getting Batman, Detective Comics, The Dark Knight, Batman & Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood and the Outlaws. I'll also be getting Aquaman, Static Shock, Hawkman, and Teen Titans. 
 
I was going to get JLA until I saw that Geoff Johns was writing. I get my daily dose of Batman hate on this site already.

#22 Posted by Sekele (276 posts) - - Show Bio

So Batman Inc. is still around  
At least now I know that Cass is probably still in Hong Kong being Black Bat  
 
I'm still curious about where Stephanie is at the moment  
let's hope it ain't the fridge

@U R Sofa King We Todd Did: I agree. It will get new readers more confused on which one to go for!
#25 Posted by longbowhunter (7323 posts) - - Show Bio

Catwoman's creative team sounds great. Not a big fan of the character so I'm undecided about it.
#26 Posted by Enderof295 (44 posts) - - Show Bio

Seriously, 11 bat titles?  Not to mention Tim Drake in Teen Titans and Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, bringin the total to 13, which is one-fourth of 52.  Oh and I can't forget the JLA, 14 total.  And some people complain that the X-Men are over saturated...
#27 Posted by darkcloakx (788 posts) - - Show Bio

batwing & nightwing only from the bat books

#28 Posted by Duo_forbidden (1161 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman, Detective Comics, Nightwing, Catwoman, Batwoman, Batgirl and MAYBE Birds of Prey is on my list.

#29 Posted by kungnima (180 posts) - - Show Bio

Scott Snyder on Batman will be.. whats the word.. Epic.

#30 Posted by Grim (2080 posts) - - Show Bio

.....NOOOOOOOOOO. DC! creating new characters again when you have A BILLION older ones who would fit perfectly into the spot? BOOOOOOOO!
 ...at least thats not Lady Blackhawk....

Gran'ts gone, then I'm out.  DC is going to run these books into the ground, just wait, they will go back to regular continuity within 2 years.

#32 Edited by CrimsonInuTears (465 posts) - - Show Bio

Sheesh, less than 2 years an they woulda hit 900. What bull. 
 
 Almost glad they took 10 months to release Batwoman #1 so they wouldn' have had to restart er too. ^_^
 
Also, what's with Roy's stupid baseball cap?

#33 Posted by ozker1127 (46 posts) - - Show Bio

im excited for Batman and Robin! And doesnt Nighwing (although it looks pretty awesome) look like robin from Batman and Robin movie only without the cape.

Wow, Jason Todd got his own series

#35 Posted by maxicere (936 posts) - - Show Bio

Batwing????  It's a bat version of Black Phanter?? Can work this title???... 8 numbers... no more

#36 Posted by TDaddy3000 (3 posts) - - Show Bio

Loose one Robin gain another. Shitty but I can live with that. I really enjoyed the Red Robin series but Jason Todd as Red Hood is one of my favorite characters.
#37 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

So many to choose...hmmm...Batman, Detective, Batgirl, Dark Knight, and B n R maybe...

#38 Posted by Xenozoic Shaman (410 posts) - - Show Bio

 I think I'll go for Batman, Batman & Robin Nightwing and Batgirl.  Catwoman might be interesting to try also.
 
Starfire and Jason Todd?  I wonder how Nightwing will feel about that?

#39 Posted by haydenclaireheroes (9191 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait for Batgirl

#40 Posted by RareCheshire (190 posts) - - Show Bio

So it's Starling, Canary, Katana and Ivy... interesting.

#41 Posted by Samimista (20833 posts) - - Show Bio

All of these sound superb will be picking up all of these books

#42 Posted by kimeraevet (188 posts) - - Show Bio

So... no mention of the return of All Star Batman and Robin huh? Damn you Jim Lee! FINISH WHAT YOU START!!

#43 Posted by Pizawle (1074 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm actually looking forward to Batwing. Hope it turns out to be very good.
 
Why couldn't Synder just stay on DC? It is a minor peeve but a peeve nonetheless.
 
Batgirl and Batwoman should both be wonderful titles.

#44 Posted by Skaddix (3117 posts) - - Show Bio

Batwoman
Red Hood  
Batman and Robin   
Batwing
Batgirl, first arc test
Birds of prey, first arc test

#46 Posted by iaconpoint (1363 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman, 'Tec, B&R, Batwoman, Catwoman and Nightwing.  
 
RIP BoP and Stephanie Brown and die a quick death to all these other books.

"dark secrets from her past", that doesn't sound at all good, this doesn't sound like a good evolution for Barbara Gordon.

#48 Edited by kennybaese (1137 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll be picking up Batman #1 and Batman and Robin #1 for sure. A bunch of the other's seem interesting, but I'm more or a trade reader myself. Oh, and probably Batgirl #1 just for the Adam Hugues cover.

Also, Batman Incorporated still seems to very much be a thing, in spite of the fact that they're saying Bruce Wayne is the only man in the Batman costume, but I guess Dick was the only one that was straight up going by Batman, everyone else is called something more or less different.

#49 Edited by Caligula (12417 posts) - - Show Bio

Barbara back as Batgirl, has me in a fit of fanboy rage. Worst decision so far of the revamp (before reading the books, at least).
 
I'll be picking up most of these though, Batgirl included even though I predict a mega-fail.

#50 Posted by CombatSpoon86 (832 posts) - - Show Bio

Even though i despise Barbara back to Batgirl, Simone has me sold on the First arc. I loved her Birds of Prey and Secret Six, so I can't go wrong here. Snyder on Batman is a no brainer bc I'm a Snyder fanatic. Batwoman and Nightwing will give a look at as well.
