@callin88

Thanks! I'm getting really impatient, the last one was good. :)
marvel72 - 10/17/2012, 5:22 AM
the joker should kill batwing i read one issue of that bok & was bored.

it was part of the night of owls storyline.
thalidomide - 10/17/2012, 5:26 AM
I think Batwing only appeared once in the night of owls storyline.
theInvincibleMexiMan - 10/17/2012, 5:26 AM
Batman #13 was so amazing, I cant wait for the rest.
:)
DCjohnny - 10/17/2012, 5:43 AM
look like clown Satan has come to gotham..... this story is going to be outstanding....
GoILL - 10/17/2012, 5:49 AM
Love these covers.
lapress - 10/17/2012, 5:51 AM
seems like shits about to go down
coolguy - 10/17/2012, 5:57 AM
i hope the joker gets his face restored somehow. also i feel like there needs to be some cancelled bat-books before we get anymore.
Phumo - 10/17/2012, 5:57 AM
The one of Redhood is the best
retr0g0dfather - 10/17/2012, 6:00 AM
Batgirl and Red Hood covers definitely carry a strong creep factor! The story so far is very intriguing and leaves me to wonder if the ” Death ” in the title means someone is going to die or if the Bat family will be broken apart (as in there ties to each other) and no longer exist.
BizarroGrif - 10/17/2012, 6:04 AM
Redhood cover is very clever. Take note eveyone else, this is how you do it.
Shadowelfz - 10/17/2012, 6:23 AM
Awesome. If Joker kills Damien I will cry tears of joy.
Jolt17 - 10/17/2012, 6:23 AM
Wow, Batgirl's the creepiest, of 'em all. Looking really great.
marvel72 - 10/17/2012, 6:30 AM
@ thalidomide

yup he had one part in that storyline & i thought the book sucked.

hence why i said i've read one issue of that comic.
comicb00kguy - 10/17/2012, 6:34 AM
Please Joker! Please kill Damien! The more painful and bloody the better! Don't forget to remove and destroy the head and dismember the torso beyond the ability of the Lazarus Pit or any form of comic book science, magic, sorcery, medicine, or any other form of life restoration known or unknown within and outside the time-space continuum to ever bring him back. Most unlikable comic character ever.
Wingding - 10/17/2012, 6:38 AM
Batman, Nightwing, and especially Red Hood and the Outlaws look freakin' awesome. Love those covers. And what the heck is up with Batman and Robin? The art looks completely retarded.
xNightwingBeyondx - 10/17/2012, 6:43 AM
Looks like he
( •_•)

(⌐■_■)did put a smile on that face
YYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAA­­AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
plasticman - 10/17/2012, 6:47 AM
The cover of Detective Comics #16 looks like he is forcing one out on the Bat-crapper.
Dedpool - 10/17/2012, 7:02 AM
This will be good! Love the Red Hood and Batman covers! Batgirl is pretty cool too!!
jimoakley666 - 10/17/2012, 7:06 AM
I really don't get the hate for Damian. He's an interesting little character.
HellsHammer - 10/17/2012, 7:25 AM
jimoakley666
I dont get it either. People used to hate on Superboy Prime and I loved him too!
Minghagz - 10/17/2012, 7:31 AM
Looking great! Very excited to pick these up! I liked the Red Hood one the best.
Minghagz - 10/17/2012, 7:33 AM
I'm on the hate bandwagon for Damian. Sorry.
GLprime2814 - 10/17/2012, 9:16 AM
Love that joker.
TheSoulEater - 10/17/2012, 9:27 AM
Rarely have I seen a victory so disgusting....

These are brilliant!
jimpinto24 - 10/17/2012, 9:36 AM
Loving the artwork! I enjoyed Batman #13 & Batgirl #13. Can't wait to pick up this titles!
KNIGHT3000 - 10/17/2012, 9:49 AM
What's so funny?
DJRock93 - 10/17/2012, 11:52 AM
@thalidomide the schedule is on the back of #13 :)
mctrinket - 10/17/2012, 6:48 PM
Kill Jason Todd again please Joker.
IronLantern79 - 10/17/2012, 8:29 PM
These are awesome. But I have to agree with mctrinket, KILL-Jason-Todd....again.

@comicb00kguy
I could not agree more. I hate him.
For that matter, put Batgirl back in the chair. No offense Babs, but standing again is a huge F-you to disabled people, and a cheap way to make sales.
comicb00kguy - 10/18/2012, 6:36 AM
Scrappybuttons: I'm with you on the Batgirl thing. Turning her into Oracle was a huge victory for disabled people, and showed that you can turn that disability into an asset- that there was still a way they could be heroes too. Oracle was a hugely useful and interesting character.

Red Hood is fraking scary
