DC Solicits of Interest - March 2012

Please see the order form for more information. • We’ve seen the history Wonder Woman shares with Ares — but what does the God of War have planned for her future?
Cool cover, as always. Interesting to see how Ares and Diana's relationship goes in the new universe, especially considering their relationship in Wonder Woman 0, I think it was...
BATMAN, INCORPORATED #9
Written by GRANT MORRISON Art and cover by CHRIS BURNHAM Variant cover by CHRIS BURNHAM 1:100 B&W Variant cover by CHRIS BURNHAM On sale MARCH 27 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T Combo pack edition: $3.99 US Retailers: This issue will ship with four covers. Please see the order form for more information. • The fallout from last month’s shocking turn of events has Batman on the run! • Is The Dark Knight a murderer? This issue is also offered as a combo pack edition with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.
What, this series is still going? It's just hard to get invested when the threat of Leviathan and co. are being completely ignored in the rest of the Bat Books due to it being kind of not in continuity any more.
Written by SCOTT SNYDER Backup story written by SCOTT SNYDER and JAMES TYNION IV Art by ANDY KUBERT and SANDRA HOPE Backup story art by ALEX MALEEV Cover by GREG CAPULLO Variant cover by ANDY KUBERT 1:100 B&W Variant cover by GREG CAPULLO On sale MARCH 13 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T Combo pack edition: $4.99 US Retailers: This issue will ship with four covers.

This issue is also offered as a combo pack edition with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.
...Harper Row is a fan favourite? I mean, she seems cool and all, but I'd prefer it if they'd just let Snyder use Cass like he wanted to in the first place.

No, he's confirmed to be a lost cause, throw him under a bus. Also, has she always had those boots? They look hilarious.
