    ABOUT THE POLL:
    Unfortunately, there were more titles than poll options this month, so I was forced to leave two titles off. Consequently, Batgirl Annual and Batman: Arkham Unhinged are not included in the poll (but feel free to post about them).

    Some really good looking covers this month. I'll be picking up Batman, B:TDK and Detective Comics to check out the new team. Maybe getting: Batgirl, Batgirl Annual and Catwoman.

    BATGIRL #13, BATGIRL ANNUAL #1, and BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED #9. I'm really liking that the Batgirl titles are one continuing storyline for this month. At both 32 and 48 pages that's an 80 page story for the month of October!!

    I've noticed my enthusiasm though for Batman Beyond Unlimited has started to wane just a bit. That cover of the slightly rusted man of steel VS 'classic' Grundy has my interest piqued though! I've heard Grundy has gotten a major make-over in Earth 2 #3 but I don't get my copy of that issue until tomorrow.
    Pull list:
    Batgirl, Inhuman, Justice League Beyond 2.0, Letter 44, She-Hulk, SM/WW, Swamp Thing, Ultimate FF (lol, 5 of my 8 titles all written by SOULE)

    the changes to detective, dark knight, and catwoman have left me feeling a LOT more optimistic towards the bat-line.

    this is probably my most anticipated group of batman solicits for the entire new 52 so far.

    I'm even more excited than I am wary of snyder's joker story.

    Man, it's like they're almost daring me to drop Nightwing at the moment.

    On a brighter note, I don't think that I've ever bought 10 Batbooks in a single month before.

    Defalco on Nightwing? And I was just about to say, new creative team on Tec, Joker returns in Batman, and Shiva returns in Nightwing so it should be a great month, but Defalco? Hopefully it's just a one-shot deal. And even though I have enjoyed the court of owls, for some reason I just have no interest in a Talon book.
