    Default Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine's Day Special #1

    Did not see a thread and this book has 3 out of it's 6 tales bat-family related.

    On sale February 6th 2013:

    • Romance is in the air in this very special Special!

    • Wonder Woman consults Eros himself about her feelings for The Man of Steel.

    Barbara Gordon has always been too busy for romance, but could her role as Batgirl bring her back to the first guy she ever kissed?

    Following the events of “Death in the Family,” how can Catwoman ease Batman’s troubled soul?

    • Aquaman makes waves as he treats his wife like a queen for a day.

    • From the pages of STORMWATCH, Apollo and Midnighter celebrate Valentine’s Day separately but with each other in mind. Who—or what—stands between them?

    Dick Grayson and the daughter of Lucious Fox meet-cute!

    • Plus: Perforated Valentine’s Day cards featuring the stars of these stories!


    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)

    Yeah, we already saw that in the first two issues of Catwoman. Next!

    Wow, Dick is really single white female-ing Tim's whole life, isn't he.

    Hmmm oh I wonder. Lots of purring involved though

    You think that couple'd be pretty kinked out, right?

    Again Lucius has like more than one daughter. Plus there are two threads on the DC Comic subforum, so yeah.

    From the previews it looks more like a flashback and we get to see their first meeting. Lupacchino's Catwoman is gorgeous and a sight for sore eyes after the weird Selina faces that Rafa draws.

    Tim's got plenty of his life in this reboot, but as someone noted, Lucius has more than one daughter.

    However, I don't think this will be played for an actual romance, despite the usage of meet-cute. With all the Joker-nastiness and future redirection going on Nightwing, its not like I honestly expect her pop up again in his book.


    Things I really find disappointing though is Nocenti writing BatCat and the whole Diana/Clark. It still feels stiff and horribly wrong.

    You know, I'm a hopeless romantic, but just no interest in any of these couples. Give me Tim and/or Steph, Kon/Cassie, Dick trying to dodge Bette Kane's advances, Jonah Hex/Talullah Black, Andrew Bennet/Mary Queen of Blood, Jason Blood/Madame Xanadu/Etrigan, even Frankenstein/Lady Frankenstein. As is, I'll pass and hope for a more engaging pairing in the L'il Gotham Valentine's Day installment.

    What's this about Dick meeting Lucius Fox's daughter? The preview says it's Dick and Ursa Minor...

    Dick doesn't meet Lucius Fox's daughter, though i think she might be the Sam on the phone, but he meets some mercenary lady.

    Ever? I know Ricky was the first kiss in the new52 but I didn't think she lost that much backstory

    Well I read the issue, my LCS had only one copy left. Catwoman's tale is spoilers:
    just a flashback tale of her first meeting with Batman.
    end of spoilers Batgirl's tale is set-up that spoilers:
    Ricky
    end of spoilers is going to be in issue #17 of her book, and Nightwing's tale apparently introduces a new spoilers:
    flirty vigilante relationship
    end of spoilers for Dick that will be introduced as a potentially ongoing character in his book.
    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)

    So Barbara Gordon has a type and apparently that is males with variations on the name Richard, first Dick and now Ricky.

    So does magic as a weakness no longer apply to Superman in this universe?

    That Nightwing piece was a definite bait and switch, which may be part of the definition of meet-cute today.

    Not literally, I hope.

    Yeah, I probably would have enjoyed a few of those stories. But, based on the price, I made a point not even to look at it, so I wouldn't be tempted.
