Spoilers: Batman #60

Batman #60 is in stores Wednesday. The solicitation follows below. It mentions the Penguin and Batman working together. What it does not mention is the surprise ending.

Batman takes on a new partner, and it’s…the Penguin? After rejecting Bane’s crime-boss co-op, Cobblepot finds himself in the crosshairs of some very teed-off villains. The feathered felon turns to his old foe to snitch on Bane’s scheme, but has to prove his intentions to avoid a Bat-beatdown. Along the way, this Gotham odd couple begins to bond-could there be a new bird joining the Bat-Family? Not if Bane has anything to say about it…

Batman returns to the Batcave. But all is not right

Batman searches for a causes and finds….

Alfred is not doing well.

And the reason for it is….

looks like Bat vs. Bat will be coming up.

        1. One day… one day we’ll profit as it doesn’t look like that time has come yet. It’s definitely a long term hold for Batman #38.

      1. I sold 1 copy of Batman #38, 1st Dark Bruce, early this morning. At least 1 guy is thinking its the dude from Batman #38. Lol

        1. Haha, nice. FOMO… Fear Of Missing Out, some will jump the gun just case. Can’t blame them at times, it can pay off at times.

        1. I think I only bought 10. It’s gonna be fun the day the market is swamped with people listing these when that time comes around. πŸ˜‰

        1. True but if they’re sticking to original uniform designs, Thomas from Flashpoint had a red circle over Bat Logo on chest where Thomas from Earth 2 if I recall had just a Red Bat Logo with a V shape on the chest pointing down to his belt buckle.
          I’m gonna stick with Flash Point Thomas unless we learn something else.

      1. So what’s the significance of Flashpoint Knight of Vengeance #1 which is also an early appearance (Aug vs. July 2011 release dates for the two). Both claims to be first appearances. Is KoV the first TWayme in costume maybe?

          1. And this story makes sense. Batman and Penguin battling Bane. Anyone recall seeing Batman (Thomas Wayne of Flashpoint) in issue #50 ?

  1. BTW, had a feeling this was coming for a while. Tried to find a NM copy of Flashpoint 1 forever on eBay. It is no easy….the hard stock cover is very unforgiving to defects. I eventually gave up after months of searching.
    That and just querying Flashpoint 1 gets you 100000000 listings of all the spinoff titles.

    1. I have about a dozen SDCC variants and 2 reg covers. If anyone is interested Amazon has the furreal Chewbacca almost half off today normally it’s $130.

      1. That would be a cool twist. But if it is, Flashpoint #1 would still trump issue #38 as the goto book. But we’d still see a lot of folks seeking out issue #38, I just think the desire would be less.

    1. I bet they’re in a longbox.. where you keep all your other comics. I also believe they’ll be found in the last place you look for them. πŸ˜›

  2. Grabbed a graded Flashpoint 1 (9.6). Might have jumped the gun, but I also have tree copies of cover A to BM 38 and know where there’s more.
    The real dilemma is whether because everyone else stock piled this issue will it have any real long term spec value. Time will tell.
    Also, check the condition of your,copies. I recall BM38 being an issue that was REALLY tough to find in 9.6/9.8 grade. In fact, I turned away from buying more because I was not investing in beat up modern comics.

  3. Definitely a nice twist, especially knowing that Bane was not the mastermind (at least that is how it read), behind the issue 50 reveal.
