The CW Network has been giving us some great DC Comics superhero shows with “Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Supergirl” and “Legends Of Tomorrow”. They also gave us “Black Lightning” not too long ago but that show doesn’t happen in the same universe as the other four do. Now its time for the annual multi-show crossover event and this year The Legends are not taking part in it but we should be fine without them as they deliver “Elseworlds”. Check out the cool poster down below.
They’ve also delivered some quick teaser clips which I’ve added down below as well.
Hey friends, I am back straight away with the stuff coming out from DC Comics because I’ve got a whole lot of stuff to attend to. As you read this I am heading to the annual WinterCon that is being held at the Resorts World Casino in Jamaica Queens. If that adventure is of interest to you, be sure to hit our Official Instagram to see all of the Cosplay that I will be snapping photos of. Now let’s get onto the comic books that are hitting the racks this month if they are a first issue or special edition.
THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #1: “A Batman who laughs is a Batman who always wins.” Left rattled by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, Bruce Wayne must come face to face with the nightmares spawned from the Dark Multiverse. But even though evil devoured evil in the collapse of Challengers Mountain, the Dark Knight still has his doubts. He discovers that the Batman Who Laughs not only survived the fight with The Joker at the end of METAL, but now he is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse—something both terrifying and oddly familiar. But when Bruce Wayne realizes the only way to stop this madman is to kill him, he must consider violating the very rule Batman won’t break…the same rule that created this insatiable villain—the Batman Who Laughs!

BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #1: When the quest for justice drives Batman into some morally ambiguous areas, he calls in the most moral man he knows: Jefferson Pierce, a.k.a. Black Lightning, and his team of operatives known as the Outsiders! Several years ago Batman personally put the Barrera family into hiding after they suffered through terrible experiments at the hands of an organization called the Ark. Now all but one of them has turned up dead…and Batman needs to locate Sofia Barrera before the wrong people get their hands on her—and her surprising power! But it wouldn’t be Batman without a hidden agenda, would it? And when Black Lightning, Katana, the Signal and Orphan find out what Batman is really up to, their every loyalty will be called into question!
It’s been a really hectic busy time in the days post NY Comic Con and much like the previous years, the immediate days and weeks that follow find us rallying the charge behind the superhero themed television shows. By my count, the DC Comics universe has six unique shows, and most of these are in a connected universe. Now we are up to the Season 3 Premiere of “Supergirl” which airs this evening. I’ve snagged the dramatic poster and offered up some reminder premise and casting down below before my editorial viewpoints.
Season 3 Recap: In the third season, Kara struggles with the loss of Mon-El after he is forced to leave Earth. When Mon-El returns, he reveals that he has time-traveled to the 31st century and founded the Legion, alongside marrying Imra Ardeen. J’onn discovers his father M’yrnn J’onzz is alive and Alex deals with her heartbreak after breaking up with Maggie. Kara and Alex’s new friend, Samantha Arias, is unknowingly another Kryptonian survivor, and begins a transformation from a loving single mother into the world-killing weapon known as Reign, who serves a coven headed by her biological mother Selena.
