>DC Comics is to publish a new series starting in Setember and spinning out of Event Leviathan comes Gotham City Monsters #1 by Steve Orlando and Amancay Nahuelpan. As Leviathan has destroyed S.H.A.D.E. alongside ARGUS, the DEO and the rest, Frankenstein is now free to target his mentor Melmoth, and puts together a team to aid him in that quest, going to Gotham to recruit Killer Croc, Lady Clayface, Orca and I, Vampire, Andrew Bennett.

>Gotham City Monsters #1 is published September 11th, with covers by Philip Tan and Frank Cho.

Because Hulk smashed Batman in sales TWO months in a row and they think just copying Marvel and then making it Batman related will make it sell by the truck load.

DC has always been on the horror train buddy, if anything Hulk is playing catch up to DC.

Damage was before Immortal Hulk though IIRC. His creation was coincidental, and just part of their new line. If anything though, Damage's shit book was stomped by Weapon H

>horror wagon of Hulk
Excuse me, retard? Immortal Hulk is an homage to Saga of the Swamp Thing and you'd know that if you weren't nine years old and new to comics. DC revolutionized horror comics with Vertigo and even before that with House of Mystery, not to say that other horror comics didn't exist alongside it and before that. And that's once again not to say that Marvel doesn't have its own horror pedigree with Tomb of Dracula, Man Thing and Marvel Zombies and other titles. But damn are you uneducated if you think Immortal Hulk doesn't take inspiration from a larger history of horror comics.
>>
>>108129733

Why is DC destroying all their organizations?

>>108129773
Hulk obviously does take inspiration from horror comics throughout history, but it also buttfucked Batman in sales recently and WB execs have been shown to be a superstitious and cowardly lot. Both can be right. It can be DC publishing a horror book like they've done repeatedly throughout history AND a panicky response to Batman getting buttfucked.

>Sondra Fuller: Genetically altered Kobra soldier, eventually abandoned them and became a part of the mud pack where she would meet Preston, who she later had a child with

I too feel that. Anything with DC's frankenstain is going to be horrorific. Although, I suppose Immoral Hulk was ripping off Agents of SHADE first.
>>
>>108129606
The idea of a DC Hulk isn't bad, but there was no pathos for the character at all. He'd just shout Damage all the time. A military owned DC Hulk with a strong supporting cast could have been Ostrander Suicide Squad tier gold (especially if the man was a follow orders regardless of morality guy, and the monster had a conscience). It was a missed opportunity.

>All these anons being super argumentative

It's sold better on issue, which was due to a variant cover, iirc. I.e. it sold better due to a sales gimmick.

it also did the following month

I mean it’s not big a leap. No one said a completely ripoff

Shilo is Scott's protege.

You would THINK Solomon fucking Grundy would be in this book. Pretty weird he isn't, unless he's the bad guy.

This is so fucking dumb, you are dumb. Imagine if someone did that in reverse.
Also start to wonder why so many people are seeing it as a catch up to Marvel.

Not him, and I don’t deny that autism is in this thread, but don’t write off everyone who sees a minor parallel here. If something outsells Batman, even briefly, it tends to raise an eyebrow

> If something outsells Batman, even briefly, it tends to raise an eyebrow
C'mon buddy, you have to know by now that Batman wasn't always a top 10 seller. Take the early 2000s, Batman was sloughing. DC has always like to push horror titles, especially since the 2011 reboot.
>>
>>108142300
>Early 2000s
That was nearly 20 years ago and not really the publisher standard now. Didio wants Batman and Superman in the top 10, especially since capeshit is Big now. I’m not denying DC loves weird I’m merely making an observation about this rather unexpected team book.
>>
>>108142337
>I’m merely making an observation about this rather unexpected team book.
You're ignoring how DC has been pushing horror heavy ever since the 2011 reboot, which is just my observation.

Not just that but JLD and Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. and Andreyko's Batwoman had her team up with Jason blood and Ragman. DC has been trying to get this horror based team for a while and this is just the current iteration.

Batman who LMAOs is just the logically outcome of trying to maximize Batman and the Joker beyond the point you should stop. Technically we should have seen him coming.
>>
>>108142470
I think DC should just cut down on team books altogether. I like character driven stories, and if they really wanted a horror showstopper they should have focused more on Swamp Thing, who hasn’t been of note since Snyder
>>
>>108142541
Well that's just the market, team books sell better because lesser known characters cannot sustain titles anymore. You want character driven stories? Pick up the one shot holiday specials.
>>
>>108142408
What's Batwank? This isn't about how Batman is the most important character ever and he can one-punch anyone. Something that always happens with Superman but you faggots eat it up. This is DC using Batman and Gotham city as a veicle so the book has more of a chance of being a success with the casual audience.

I'm fucking tired of people crying about Batwank whenever Gotham or Batman is used in anything, even when Batman is just there to be shat on. Goddamn, you guys are fucking children. But then Superman goes, bitch-slap the Anti-Monitor, buttfuck Wonder Woman in her pussy, and tells everyone he's the king of the planet and you niggas cheer that as brilliant writing. Yeah, i'm fucking mad.

>>108142470
I fucking hate that DC thought it was a good idea to have Batwoman steal all of Batman occult friends and stories. She even stole his past love interest.
>>
>>108143121
>She even stole his past love interest.
I wouldn't really call what Nocturna did the actions of a "love interest."
>>
>>108143212
It's still proves that Batwoman was stealing everything from Batman. They wanted to make her the occult "Batman". Something that was entirely Batman.

This reminds me that there are a bunch of people already prehevently crying about Batwank because they fear Batman might do something useful in Doomsday Clock like helping Lois and Superman.
>>
>>108143275
>Something that was entirely Batman.
The problem is Batman is a lot of things, Batman is a hoarder. Take Lady Shiva for example, She's not supposed to be Batman villain but somehow she became one.
The truth is that Batman doesn't deserve exclusive rights to the occult stuff in Gotham, he's part of a shared universe.
>emphasis on share.

>>108143332
No, they're Batman's friends. Kate is acting like the cool slutty cousin who's making all of Batman's friends ignore him because she's oh so awesome.
>>
>>108143332
>>108143352
Trying to make Kate “Supernatural Batman” was a dumb idea to begin with. In fact Kate was just a bad idea
>>
>>108129455
Charaxes was dumb, just like Scare-beast was dumb - but I like the idea that when some people are exposed to fear-gas, they sorta "see" them again
>>
>>108143352
Ragman and Jason Blood isn't Batman's friends, they're characters that exist in Gotham.
>>
