The noise you make when you get stabbed by an umbrella is 'Gug gug gug'.

they came up with the idea for a "voiceless" batman after having to sit through the dork knight trilogy, enduring christian bale growling like a metallica reject. *cringe*

The interior art is interesting

You like reading comics for free and here I am BUYING my comics at my local comic store like a douchebag....oh ..wait..that's right,I'm supporting the comic industry and my local comic merchant!Silly me!!!
ds9epicfan - 12/27/2013, 4:01 PM
Anyways,comic looks interesting,I'll be BUYING a copy at my local comic store!
TheDemonsHead - 12/27/2013, 5:53 PM
lol @ds9epicfan thinking you're superior to @GilderMan in anyway (calling him a douchebag)simply because for whatever reason chooses to not purchase A COMIC BOOK in my opinion makes you a douchebag.

But how bout we just accept people for who they are..... PEACE
TheDemonsHead - 12/27/2013, 5:55 PM

@TheDemonHead
First....go read my post up above very carefully and slowly and tell me WHERE I call @GliderMan a douchebag!On this site if I don't agree with someone then I either disagree directly or with humor,I don't revert to name-calling because it shows low self-esteem!
second....I never said or thought I was superior(your words not mine)to anyone who reads comics for free.
third...Thanks for calling me a douchebag for simply voicing my opinion.Because everybody's job in this world depends on others to make a living and if you get everything for free,then people lose money and can't pay their bills,so therefore I support an industry(including comic book stores) providing me entertainment I enjoy by buying their products
fourth....Try some of your own advice and accept(including me)people for who they are!Peace and have a Happy New Year!
Oh and fifth....Notice in my entire post here,I didn't call you any nasty names,just because I don't write them down doesn't mean I ain't thinking it!Again Peace!;)

Try the library there u won't have to steal and your still supporting comics as your tax dollars support libraries or buy it from a comic shop just got my Born Better graphic novel for Thunderbolts from online very cheap
GliderMan - 12/27/2013, 7:16 PM
Yo guys I thought I saw a comment on here awhile back that said DC Comics had a website where you could read old ones for free!

This is the best DC comic currently running.

Alex Maleev's art was the best in my opinion.
KryptoKNIGHT - 12/28/2013, 5:07 AM
Was loving the art till that last page. Hit and miss, I see.
JediPhilosopher - 12/28/2013, 5:24 AM
A silent comic book. What'll they think of next. :D
DaddyTuesday - 12/28/2013, 7:07 AM
^ Next issue has no artwork just speech bubbles dotted around the pages. The issue after that is just a load of blank pages. That would be my favourite issue of all the new 52 comics.
FlyingSeel - 12/28/2013, 9:07 AM
Does no one remember Batman & Robin #18? It was completely silent and is rated one of the best comics of the year.

@Bread this title sucks. Worst Batman title hands down.

Also give the guy asking for free comic links a break. I've been broke before and downloaded torrents of comics only to later buy them anyway. You don't know his story so don't call him a douche.

@GliderMan
There are quite a few DC comics online for free. Their website has a few freebies. Other sites have posted old Silver Age comics, and a few have gotten permission to post some Vertigo issues. Hellblazer and Swamp Thing's banned issues are online too.
If you want to read all the latest fare, then do what I do. Get all your comic reading friends together in one room and plan out what everyone wants to collectively read and what they can spend monthly. Then split the digital subscriptions up fairly and share your passwords. Bob buys all the Bat-books. Stan buys all the Spider-books. Jack buys all the Avengers books. Etcetera. Just make sure they're friends you can trust with your credit card info.

That whole book of art comes off more like a major fart… No Thanks it stinks
PunPun - 12/28/2013, 8:40 PM
What a bunch of garbage. And people will say "oh yeah it's super artsy." More like super FARTSY.
BeyondTheGrave - 12/29/2013, 12:07 AM
I hate silent issues, no matter the title, marvel, or dc, or independent...I HATE silent issues.
JorEllinator - 1/3/2014, 3:35 AM
Detective Comics is the worst Bat-Book, (frick)ing AWFUL, Batman and... sucks too.
IMO:
Batman
Batman The Dark Knight
Superman Batman
Batman and...
Detective Comics

That silent issue was just a bunch of artsy shit. Good idea, but executed terribly.
