When it was time to solicit its titles that would be on shelves next month, DC Comics announced that April would be "WTF" month. As part of the initiative, the publisher stated that each comic in April would come with a gatefold cover that, when fully revealed, would shock the reader, making it 100% WTF Certified.

This afternoon, DC Comics made it's first reveal of one of these gatefolds, showing the full cover for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman #19. You can check out the first WTF moment after the cut.

Confession: This did not make me say "WTF." Now, if Bruce Wayne actually shot Jim Gordon in the back, it would be a different story. Granted, that would make for a demonstrably awful comic, and would all but assuredly ruin the character, but, I mean... I definitely would have said "What the f**k" the second I saw it. So the mission would be accomplished, I guess?
