That Rob Guillory Secret Avengers variant is maybe the best thing I've been ever.

I'm completely on board with this writing team, but I can't decide if those techno-zombies are dopey or not.
Oh, and I think that the five years into the future will by the Firestorm (present) story line, not Batman Beyond.
Were these any good? I remember hearing pretty mixed things about them back in the day. Then again, I was never sure if that was just people's aversion to change or because the stories were actually bad. I for one have always been interested in them because I kind of love alternate takes on DC's big characters.
@stormtrance1618: That helps put this in context. Thanks for posting it. I'm with everyone else; I definitely think this is Harper. It's a cool, if a little overdone design. It's kind of Nightwing-ish and I wouldn't be surprised if she takes over that persona and Dick moves on to something else now that he's been outed in Forever Evil.
@mercy_: I'm thinking that they're doing a soft reboot with Future Past by basically passing the torch to the First Class cast and retiring the original cast for the most part.
I missed this on Twitter. The two that I can think of off of the top of my head are both Morrison books, strangely enough. The last issue of Morrison's Batman run. That panel where Bruce is standing alone in the cave and tells bat-cow and Alfred the cat to shut up was pretty powerful to me not only as a send off to Damien, but Morrison's Batman story as a whole. Batman is forever, but only at great cost.
The other is the end of his and Sean Murphy's Vertigo mini-series Joe the Barbarian. When Joe finds the hidden letter from his dad, I legitimately teared up. It was one of the first comics to do that to me. Although, now that I'm getting married and stuff, I've turned into a hopeless sap and it doesn't take much to put a lump in my throat.
I'm excited for this. Gleason and Tomasi's Batman and Robin is neck and neck with Batman proper for the best Bat book on shelves. They've had a couple of trip ups, but it's been so good. I submit that Gleason Joker as evidence.
@lcazt1996: Definitely. I've only read the first two volumes at this point, but I picked them up for the same reasons you listed and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest.
This could be cool. At least it seems like they're planning on leaning into their new continuity and won't pull another reboot in ten years like they did last time. Could be cool.
I'm still holding out hope that Sony and Disney will work something out to have a little crossover between Spider-Man and the MCU.
@billy_batson: I have a feeling we're about to see the end of the $2.99 comic. Feels like Marvel and DC are moving away from it.
It's annoying, but as long as they have a higher page count I'm mostly fine with it.
Also, I've never really read any Moon Knight, but the idea of an actually crazy Batman is super intriguing. Plus, there's the Warren Ellis of it all.
