5/15: Excellent to hear there will be a 7th issue. I wonder how far along Dini and Burnett are in writing. Or perhaps it will be an extended epilogue issue or just a one off of an idea they discarded initially...

I'm going to guess that Deathstroke and Sunny steals some of Mad Hatter's mind control tech and uses it on Batgirl and Robin so Batman's forced to fight them, too.

5/20: BTAC digital issues starting this week release on Thursdays.

Digital preorder for Issue #3 Chapter 1 and its logline differs from the CBR solicit
Deathstroke and Robin face down Firefly, but can the two stand the heat after the firebug gets the upperhand? And who's hired Deathstroke to take down the Dark Knight?
So fair to say the logline in the solicit could be for digital chapter 2. Cue iammattie to scream it's Hush. :p
Deathstroke makes his move against the Dark Knight, but he's not just going to strike at him physically—he's going to try to destroy him completely by using the rest of the Bat-Family against him!
5/22: So at least Peach Momoko did a retailer exclusive variant cover for BTAC #2. This is is for Frankie's Comics and releases June 30.

I'm holding onto that theory that SOMEONE is Hush right now, though James and Ted are also thinking I'm a bit off lol.
5/23: Well, I mean, anyone with deep pockets and an axe to grind with Batman could be considered a suspect and that line goes on and on around many corners... whether it's one of the new characters like Hush or a pre-existing one like Penguin is anyone's guess. Or you could argue it can't be the Court of Owls because they could just send Talon but devil's advocate, they could have hired Deathstroke, perhaps even through an intermediary and many shell companies, to preserve their anonymity from even Batman's notice, all in preparation for a major operation of theirs that requires at least sidelining him.

5/26: Here's Dan Hipp's cover for BTAC #3 if anyone missed it back on the 15th.

Preorder/logline up for BTAC #3 Chapter 2.
Deathstroke enacts his final plan to kill the Dark Knight, luring him away from the rest of the Bat-Family. Can Batgirl and Robin deduce Deathstroke plans, or will Gotham have a new, more brutal, protector?!
Looks to be teasing Azrael? But since the toy is the blue and orange suit... what a twist if that's Slade in there and not Jean.

2 new trademarks filed by The Cartoon Network, Inc. recently: Hot Freaks and Norm Nerveman, Neural Detective. Probably not animation, because they only say "in the field of comedy" instead, which leads me to them being potential new [adult swim] projects.


Apparently, Suite Life and Phineas and Ferb were on Jetix USA: Saturday Kids TV schedules

If Spider-Man says wear a mask, then wear it.
Tenchi Muyo! debuted on old Toonami 20 years ago today. Love still stinks.
