That sound you just heard is the sound of one million Tumblrs updating.
On Tuesday morning DC announced titles, teams, and plot outlines for ten of its forty planned two-issue Convergence mini-series, which will coincide with the publisher's big event comic next spring and take the place of its regular monthly output. From the looks of it, there's plenty of fan-service involved for people who loved pre-New 52 DC continuity.
Not only is Renee Montoya getting her own two issues as The Question, written by Greg Rucka -- who initially put Montoya in that role -- and drawn by Cully Hamner; but there's a Stephanie Brown Batgirl series, a Nightwing/Oracle wedding story, a Wally West story, a Superman/Lois Lane marriage series, a Bruce/Damian Batman & Robin series, and so on.
Do you like loving, slow-motion shots of the Batmobile? Do you like the idea of Batman jumping out of a moving Batmobile and gliding through the night sky? Do you like punches and knees to the face?
If you do, then you're probably going to enjoy the heck out of the new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight, the game that marks Rocksteady Studios' return to the Arkham game franchise after it took a break on Batman: Arkham Origins. Check out the video after the jump for not only all that action, but for glimpses of the Scarecrow, Two-Face, Oracle, and the mysterious and new title character.
As Batman: Arkham Knight, the next entry in the popular video game franchise about Batman beating the criminally insane into submission in asylums of increasingly improbable sizes and complexity, draws nearer, we're starting to get to the point where we're getting a steady stream of information about the game. Today, with the release of a new set of screenshots, we got some of the most interesting news of all.
According to the latest screens, after appearances as a voice in a headset in the past three games, Barbara Gordon will finally be appearing as Oracle. That's big news for fans fans, but to be honest, that stuff about the Batmobile shooting you out of the roof like James Bond's ejector seat will probably have a bigger impact on gameplay.
Next week's release of Justice League #1 marks the beginning of a new era for DC Comics, whose superhero titles and characters will throughout September undergo a radical reconfiguration where many will be newly created, relaunched, reimagined or even abandoned. Among the casualties wil
Launched into the Internet last night was this lovely cover for Gail Simone's new Batgirl series. Identified by DC Women Kicking Ass as the Adam Hughes illustration for Batgirl #2, the image would seem to depict a Barbara Gordon younger than she presently appears as Oracle in Birds of Prey. Of course, we'll have to wait until September to see just what's what in the new series, which is doubtlessly the most controversial of DC's superhero relaunch.

Q: What's your take on Batgirl's newly granted ability to walk? Should characters be permanently disabled? -- @deebeemonster
A: If DC's goal with their reboot was to get people talking about their books again, then they've certainly succeeded on tha
The news that DC Comics is returning wheelchair-bound heroine Barbara Gordon a.k.a. Oracle to her original role as the decidedly mobile Batgirl has hit an uncommonly sensitive nerve with comic book fans. As demonstrated by the more than one-hundred (and counting) reader comments to our editorial on the subject, readers are widely divi
Barbara Gordon -- the original Batgirl who's been confined to a wheelchair since 1988's Batman: The Killing Joke, in which she was shot in the spine by The Joker -- will be up and running again in the wake of the forthcoming DC Comics relaunch/reboot. The news was confirmed Monday by Gail Simone, writer of DC's new Batgirl series and also the author most responsible for Barbara Gordon's activities in the last several years.
After being 'dead' for about a month and traveling through time for upwards of a year, Batman has finally returned. It's doubtful that anyone missed his return to the world of the contemporary living, since he did it in about ten different books over the last two months
