DC Comic Book Showcase - December 24, 2014


As the end of the 75th Anniversary of Batman rolls around, DC Comics gives us a week full of gifts concentrated on the Dark Knight and his beloved family of crime fighters. It’s been a hard year for our Caped Crusader as he’s dealt with the death of his son and the change from Dick Grayson being a super hero to embracing the role of government agent. We also get some action from femme fatales Helena Bertinelli and Catwoman as they cross paths with dangerous enemies in their different and complex walks of life.

Writer Dan Abnett takes us into the heat of battle as the Eternity War gears up. He-Man and his pals go up against dark forces that plan to rule the universe from the captured Castle Grayskull. Can the combined strengths of She-Ra, Teela, and He-Man reclaim Eternia in the name of all that’s good?
