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.

Apparently, in addition to the DreamWorks incarnation of Trolls... Disney Channel aired the DiC one?

Hey guys, I'm back! Been gone for almost a year from having a lot on my plate but now I have more free time. I hope everyone here is making it through these tough and difficult times.
Today marks the 20th Year Anniversary of when Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask was released in North America. Majora's Mask was the second game from the franchise I played and certainly fits with the Halloween theme.
Why did Adult Swim air the Family Guy episode Wasted Talent as part of the Halloween special?
