Thanks to Jay for starting the conversation on this one.
Since the Rebirth series started, the renumbered Detective Comics book has been really good. The Batman team, the new Batcave building in the middle of Gotham, and Clayface, has made the series really interesting to me. But it seems that the series is about to take a turn with Detective Comics #939.
The interesting thing is, the covers have been obscured up until recently. In fact, TFAW and Mycomicshop still have the cover art not showing. This leads you to wonder if something bad happens to someone on the cover.
Here are the covers though:
Blastr had a short preview of the book showing Tim Drake, aka Red Robin, will be leaving to go to college.
According to the solicitation though, things may end worse than just Red Robin leaving for college:
Rise of the Batmen’ part six! The full scope of the Colony’s plans, and their mysterious leader, have all been revealed…so what’s it going to take to stop them? Believe us, you are not prepared for the last scene!
Does someone die?
The cover to Detective Comics #940 shows a sullen team with Batgirl looking especially sad. However, Red Robin is on the cover. The variant has not been released yet.
Detective Comics #939 is out this Wednesday 8/24/16
