9 BATMAN “ROAD HOME” ONE-SHOTS IN OCTOBER!*

ARE YOU IN?

You can tell how fantastic these books are going to be because they are ALL labeled 'TOP SECRET"

BEND OVER, INSERT WALLET!

In the movie Wanted: Dead or Alive, actor Robert Guillaume (TV’s Benson for all you old folks) looked at Rutger Hauer and said,“The next time you decide to fuck me, kiss me first.”

DC Comics is releasing 9 Batman “one-shot” comic books this October… Making this possibly the longest, most ridiculously complicated journey home for a fictional character since Captain Leo Davidson attempted to escape from Tim Burton’s The Planet of the Apes.

Here are the books (in order of release):

Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Batman & Robin, Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Red Robin, Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Outsiders, Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Batgirl, Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Commissioner Gordon, Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Catwoman, Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Ra’s Al Ghul and Bruce Wayne- The Road Home: Oracle

And here’s the kicker: It looks like you have to wait until Batman- The Return to see “Bats” finally hit good ol’ present day Terra Firma.

The first 8 books are “only” $2.99 each. The ninth “Money Shot” book, Batman- The Return will cost you as much as a Subway “Five-Dollar Footlong” Sandwich. That means DC expects you to cough up just shy of $30 USD to see Bruce Wayne come back home.

Wonder how many of these books will be filler? Wonder if the story could have been told in 40 pages or less?
