    Default Early info on Batman #18

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/...r-guest-artist

    Let's start from the top:

    1. Unspeakable tragedy? That gets an eyebrow raise from me.
    2. Harper Row is back. Yay!
    3. (Deleted upon realizing my mistake)
    4. Alex Maleev is drawing the backup. Much more exciting than Andy Kubert drawing the main feature.

    That's it from me. What do you guys say? I'm suspecting the usual suspects to say the usual things.

    Kubert's Batman is awesome.

    When did Harper Row become a " fan favorite " ha? I think she's cool but c'mon she 's been in all of one issue so far.

    I'm skeptical on the unspeakable tragedy part but Kubert and Maleev is always cool. And if any one deserves break right now it's surely Greg Capullo.

    Always good to see Kubert's art on Batman, but I'm really excited for Maleev! Has he ever done anything for DC before?

    Is that the actual cover though? It says interior art sample I think...

    With Harper, I honestly wasn't that big of a fan of her in #12, but I'm hoping she actually proves to have some long-term significance here. And this unspeakable tragedy is making me nervous.

    I think it's awesome to see Kubert on it, I think his style works with this batman! Maleev is also pretty awesome, should be a stellar book... but is it his first dc stuff? Capullo deserves a break DOTF finishes with #17 so just like when The Court Of Owls stuff finished he took a break ( #12 ) Oh and the art they released is the sample interiors not the cover.

    My mistake guys about the supposed "cover". Guess that's a lesson in read the entire article.

    If there's a comic I would pick up on art alone...

    Some Bat stuff here and there in the late 90s.

    Maleev on back-up might be better. only might, because Kubert does a hell of a Batman as well.
