BATMAN #57
DC COMICS
(W) Tom King (A/CA) Tony S. Daniel
The KGBeast isn't working alone. As the Cold War between Batman and the Russian killer heats up, Batman's nose for mystery gets to twitching when he suspects there's more to the KGBeast's attacks than initially thought.

That involves Batman and Scarecrow battling through the streets of Gotham City, with the Caped Crusader not knowing what's real and what's fake.

CATWOMAN #4 FOIL
DC COMICS
(W) Joëlle Jones (A) Fernando Blanco (CA) Joëlle Jones
Things have gone from bad to worse for Selina in Villa Hermosa. Her new city has taken away what little she was able to carry with her from Gotham, and her rap sheet offers scant protection when local crooks frame her for murdering two police officers. The law has caught up with her and Catwoman is in the clink, giving her time to reflect on her life and all the things that led her to Vila Hermosa. Turns out she didn't choose the move randomly or just to get away from the Batman. This special interlude issue takes us back in time to explode some previously unknown truth bombs from Selina Kyle's past.

DC COMICS
(W) James Robinson (A) Stephen Segovia (CA) John Paul Leon
Batman is hot on the trail of a murder suspect, but first he'll have to get past Two-Face. Even though Harvey Dent seems to be asserting control, how long before he becomes a sociopathic criminal once again? More importantly, what is Dent's connection to the victim, and what does it all have to do with the terrorist organization of slithering serpents called Kobra?! Whatever it is, it's big enough to reunite Jim Gordon and former district attorney Harvey Dent, and that meeting alone is worth the cover price.
Batman's newest partner...Two-Face? As Harvey Dent's persona asserts fragile control over the villain's psyche, the Dark Knight, Commissioner Gordon and their ally-turned-enemy-turned-ally must work together to stop Kobra's terrorist attack against Gotham City.

DREAMING #2 (MR)
DC COMICS
(W) Simon Spurrier (A) Bilquis Evely (CA) Jae Lee
Merv Pumpkinhead ain't happy.
Sure, Merv Pumpkinhead doesn't exactly radiate happy at the best of times, but now? Right now a bunch of blank-faced strangers from between realities are taking local jobs; foreign criminals are profiteering at the realm's expense; and the VIPs seem more interested in themselves than getting back to the "good old days."
The Dreaming used to be somewhere a vegetable-headed guy could be proud to call home, y'know?
Fact is, Merv Pumpkinhead's been pushed too far. It's time for change. Right at the top.

HOUSE OF WHISPERS #2 (MR)
DC COMICS
(W) Nalo Hopkinson (A) Dominike "Domo" Stanton (CA) Sean Andrew Murray
Erzulie shouldn't be in the Dreaming; in fact, she isn't really sure how she suddenly got stranded there. Worse, she soon learns that she is no longer connected to her worshippers, which, for a deity, means only one thing: death. Against the advice of Cain and Abel, Erzulie steers her houseboat back into the rip between the worlds in an effort to return to her realm. But how will she find her way back, and what danger lies ahead in the otherworldly waters she finds herself sailing?
Meanwhile, Latoya's sisters and her girlfriend watch her comatose body in the hospital, praying she'll wake up, not realizing they'd best be careful what they wish for...

DC COMICS
(W) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Stjepan Sejic

'Cuz more violence is always the answer!

SUPERGIRL #23 FOIL
DC COMICS
(W) Marc Andreyko (A) Kevin Maguire (CA) Stanley Lau
Supergirl's cosmic quest continues as she searches the galaxy for the truth about Rogol Zaar's connection to Krypton's destruction-and if there are any other culprits to be brought to justice. The library police are hot on Kara's trail after she breaks into the Green Lantern database on Mogo, but she's short on credits to pay the fine.

SUPERMAN #4 FOIL
DC COMICS
(W) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis
As Superman fights to protect the world  from Rogol Zaar and the Kryptonian convicts trapped inside the Phantom Zone, the greatest minds on Earth devise a risky plan to return the planet from the deadly prison.

TITANS #28 (DROWNED EARTH)
DC COMICS
(W) Dan Abnett (A) Clayton Henry (CA) Leonardo Manco
Then, in a tie-in to the road to "Drowned Earth," the Titans get a visit from an old teammate when Atlantean mage Tempest guest-stars in the ish. What's got Garth's fishnets in a twist? He's there to help the new Titans lineup take on a major oceanic threat, whose attack comes straight out of the pages of Justice League and Aquaman. Guess you could say that prelude "spills over" into TITANS this month.
