Is it just me, or does the red hood cover remind anyone of star wars?
Knightrider - 5/14/2012, 1:14 PM
Maybe there is a reason in the book for the look of the cover, I think it is pretty neat
marvel72 - 5/14/2012, 2:12 PM
batman by snyder is the only batman book that i'm intrested in reading.
Wildaniel - 5/14/2012, 6:29 PM
Batman Batman and more Batman!!!! Cant get enough. I hope Snyder's Batman will have classic villains after Night Of Owls.

And I hope Spark will be gone from the Catwoman title.

Batwoman vs Batgirl? Thats gonna be good!
