I have a feeling the reveal isn't going to be as earth shattering as someones head or body parts.That seems like cheap parlour tricks to get attention for the book. I believe Snyder is a smarter writer than that and It will be something more subtle that will provide a great moral or lesson to the bat family.

Whatever happens, this arc has definitely captured my interest- and that's all I'm really after in a book.

I'm really not trying to troll, but why is Boba Fett so cool? Sure, Slave 2 is a cool looking ship and a great name, he's got some good lines, but he doesn't really do anything. Vader and Lando do all the work in catching Han, Boba Fett just "puts Solo in the cargo bay" and delivers him to Jabba. The next time we see him, he gets eaten (presumably, although in the EU he apparently escaped somehow) by the Sarlac. What part of that qualifies him as "greatest bounty hunter?"

Did I miss the weekly feature "This Weeks Essential Comics"? Or did it not get posted this week?

Not usually my genre of choice, but with these two on the title I'll definitely be checking this out.

Eh. . . I guess I'm one of those sick, sick people who doesn't fully get Deadpool. He's amusing from time to time, but for the most part anything he's a significant part of seems to just be a string of not terribly clever or original jokes.

Couldn't agree more. I wanted so much to like this character over the years, but the concept is just so juvenile. I consistently pull and drop this title from my list hoping things will change or I'll find a good story arc.....but it never happens.

Sorry, but Deadpool sucks.

Would this be a good jumping on point for new readers or will I be lost in the decades of repetitive stories and confusing plot lines?

By top of the pile for January, do you mean my favorite books of the month? Or what books do I literally have on the top of my pile. Because my "top of the pile" doesn't vary a whole lot from month to month usually. When I hear the phrase top of the pile, it means books I'm most excited to read first. Sooooo, I'll answer it that way.

For me this month:

Superior Spider-Man 1

Batman 16

Saga 9

Harbinger 8

All New X-Men 6

He-Man Origin (one shot)/ He-Man 6

@Loki2u: See I never understand why pepole say this, I mean nobody knew who Luke Skywalker was before Star Wars, nobody knew who Neo was before The Matrix ect

To compare those movies to Dredd is ridiculous. Those are original screenplays and were groundbreaking for their time.

Dredd was good, but it wasn't even a fraction of how good Star Wars and Matrix were. But I suppose time will tell. If Dredd end up grossing more than Star Wars in BluRay sales....I stand corrected. :P

Dredd was rated 18a and couldn't even reach out to its major audience-kids! It was a good script to us comicbook fans, but to appeal to everybody? Dredd needed a lot of work to become a huge success.
