Week in Review: April 20: Batman Endgame
This was brought up on the Comic Book Invest website earlier today. So this post is a summary of whats happening with the Batman Endgame story line leading into Batman: Convergence.
Scott Snyder has said for the past few months to expect big things to happen in the Batman Universe. Batman Endgame has been getting rave reviews and has been selling well in both comic book stores and in the comic book after market. The final part of the storyline comes out on April 29 and the story is continued directly after in the DC FCBD book that comes out on May 2 2015. As with all FCBD comics, the books are shipped to retailers weeks in advance – this is to account for shortages or damages allowing the distributor company to send replacements – so that more customers get the books they want on FCBD.
As revealed in the linked article, the FCBD book explains that Batman and Joker died in the previous issue never to return – and the issue is continued in Batman Convergence. Solicitations for Batman #41 suggested that Bruce Wayne would be replaced as batman but now it is confirmed that in Batman #41 Bruce Wayne is dead and commissioner Gordon will take on the reign as a new Batman.
So here are the books you should be looking for.
Gordon of Gotham #1 – This is the first Commissioner Gordon solo book
Batman #35 Endgame Part 1
There are convention variants and a rare combo-pack edition for this book. All covers have a lot of potential. Depending on how long this Batman lasts, the Batman Endgame storyline is going to have legs for years to come, with the possibility of becoming another staple Batman Storyline.
Batman #40 is going to be a big book since it is going to be the Death issue. The covers to look for are the 1:25 AND HIGHER variant covers and the digital copy variant which is already selling at presale auction for $15+!
Divergence DC FCBD is going to be a new beginning for Batman. So Already this has the potential for being the 2015 FCBD Speculation winner. (But there is another HIP HOP Family Tree that looks good! (I know, I’ll talk about FCBD Speculation before FCBD I hope.))
Sorry for not posting in a few days. I havn’t had anything to write about.
