Poor DC, trapped between having story line surprises and having to market those same surprises.
This it is with Batman #24 by Tom King, David Finch, Miki and Jordie Bellaire. The issue is previewed in an Article at USA and today, and it doesn’t leave much to the imagination. It would be fun to just come on this story and go “Whoa!!!!’ but marketing requires that you read all about it so that you remember to go to the comics shop tomorrow in case something else comes up before then.
Back in the day Batman and Catwoman were doing THIS.
But now they’ve taken it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
I PROPOSE that you read the preview below.
I think you’ll find it ENGAGING.
So what do you think?
Are you interested in the MARRIAGE of words and picture to tell a story?
Do you like the use of SCRIBD embeds to preview comics?
Is Batman going to make an HONEST WOMAN our of former jewel thief Catwoman at long last?
Are you interested in their PLIGHT and THEIR TROTH?
Sound off in the comments. And don’t say I didn’t warn you.
