This week, six DC Rebirth comics go on sale: Justice League: Rebirth #1, Batman #2, Aquaman #2, Green Lanterns #2, Superman #2, and Green Arrow #2. Well, I’ve read Batman #2 (by Tom King, David Finch, Jordie Bellaire, Matt Banning, and Danny Miki) and I’m here to tell you that it’s awesome. Were you planning to read Batman #2 no matter what I say about it? Odds are the answer is yes for many of you, but some of you out there may still be on the fence, or maybe you completely forgot that a new Dark Knight comic is available tomorrow. If you’re one of those people, hopefully the upcoming babbling will convince you to give it a shot. And for those already looking forward to the comic, I hope this gets you even more excited to read the Caped Crusader’s upcoming issue. Now, I’ll stop with the vague praise and get a little more specific, but don’t worry, this article is spoiler-free!

I remember the first time I had watched the live-action Batman TV show starring Adam West & Burt Ward. I was five years old and was completely enthralled at this age of the Caped Crusader. I wanted any and all toys having to do with anything Batman. Now, through the magic of technology, I had a TV show and something to record episodes I missed on. This new gizmo my Dad brought home from NYC was called a “VCR” and Poppa Junkie dropped $800 on it for his growing family.

Batman Rebirth #1 here:


DC’s Rebirth has begun! Apparently, the publisher wanted this lesser-known dude named “Batman” to get his very own title and a Rebirth one-shot. We’ve never heard of this guy before, but we have heard he has some fans out there. So, we’re bringing in two excellent writers, Tom King and Scott Snyder, to sign copies of Batman Rebirth #1 and Batman #1 (King wrote both issues; Snyder co-wrote Rebirth #1 with King)! The limited signing will take place at Midtown Comics Downtown on Saturday, June 25th at 2pm. We’re raffling two hundred tickets to the event via the online contest below. It’s time to test your luck, Batman fans!
