Gotham City Sirens
Times are tough and comics can be expensive! We here at Major Spoilers understand that and we know that sometimes it’s tough not to get lost in a sea of comics, know what to buy and sometimes you only get one. We want to help. This month we asked our contributors “What one collected edition would you recommend readers pick up?” Just one. The best of October. Maybe something a little scary. This is what we all had to say: WAYNE’S PICK: Batman: Death of the Family Book and Joker Mask Set Writer: Scott Snyder Artist: Greg Capullo Publisher:
Harley Quinn is pissed. She’s had it to the tips of her cap with the Joker. So now she’s going to use a few random items to break into Arkham Asylum and do what no one else seems to be able to, kill her puddin’. Can she pull it off, find out after the jump.
The Thanksgiving week is a really weird one. It makes for a short work week, which is nice, but the four day weekend, where we stuff our gullets with turkey and spend the next three days in a stuffing filled haze can be a bit overwhelming. Such is the case with DC Comics and the plethora of Batman titles released each week. Since I’m such a Batman fan (he said with much sarcasm), here’s a rundown of the past week’s Bat-titles.
Since Grant Morrisonâ€™s R.I.P., the Joker has been pretty scarce, and some have speculated where the Clown Prince of Crime might have wandered off to.Â Dead? The new Red Hood? Hunting bats in the far past?Â Nope. Turns out heâ€™s been right there waiting to make a dramatic entrance.
Surprisingly enough, leading ladies Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn take a back seat in issue 3 of this new series. Donâ€™t expect this book to pick up where issue 2 left off; we donâ€™t discover what becomes of Harley who was kidnapped by Tommy Elliot (posing as Bruce Wayne). The storyline will pick up again in issue 4 titled â€œHush and Harleyâ€.
Who’s still following Gotham City Sirens? Guillem March does the cover for issue #8, which makes for a great opportunity to feature his work as today’s entry for the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day.
