Kanan Last Padawan:
At the height of the Clone Wars, he was known as Caleb Dume, Jedi Padawan, under the instruction of Jedi Master Depa Billaba.

The biggest story in DC history:
The earthquakes felt round the Multiverse, Superman’s lost days after "Doomed," the World’s End — all these points will converge as the history of the DCU is spun from a new perspective, that of a mad god and his arrogant child. The biggest story in DC history ties into literally every DC story ever told–and it all begins here, in Convergence #0, by Dan Jurgens and Jeff King, with art and cover by Ethan Van Sciver, with variant covers by Darwyn Cooke, Adam Hughes, and Patrick Zircher!

Scott Snyder’s Batman Eternal concludes:
The epic Bat-story over a year in the making comes to a stunning end next week in the final issue! Gotham is in shambles, and Batman has seen better days—how will he put an end to this nightmare, and how will it shape the face of Gotham City to come? It’s all in Batman Eternal #52, by Scott Snyder with art by Paulo Siqueira, cover by Jason Fabok, variant by Andy Kubert. Did we mention James Tynion IV will be at Midtown Comics Downtown next Wendesday signing the book? More details here!
