November is going to be a big month for Batman as far as DC Collectibles is concerned. It's fitting, given that this year is the Caped Crusader's 75th anniversary, but it's still worth noting that this may be DC Collectibles' Dark Knight-iest month ever with 16 of its 23 total solicitations representing the Bat family. That's not to say Bats casts too large a shadow over DC and Vertigo's other characters. November will also see the release of new Stargirl and Hawkman figures, a Superman: The Animated Series statue and an an iZombie statue based on Mike Allred's art that will make you wonder why the Vertigo comic-turned-CW TV series hasn't been come back from the dead yet.
