If you haven't read Scott Synder's BATMAN
#28 yet (you can read BOF's review of the issue by John Bierly RIGHT HERE
), do that first and then read the story below. If you already have, then read on...
Meet Batman's new FEMALE sidekick, Harper Row -- AKA "Bluebird."
Bluebird from BATMAN #28
The events of BATMAN #28 are set 6 months ahead of current continuity in DC's Batman universe, all there are all sorts of crazy stuff going on! Gotham City -- now called "New Gotham" -- has a new crime boss and the city itself is going through, well, something really bad.
Of course, BATMAN #28 is really a big set up/teaser for the upcoming BATMAN ETERNAL, the upcoming year-long weekly limited series which will commence this coming April (2014). BATMAN ETERNAL will feature Batman, his allies, and Gotham City, and will be written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Ray Fawkes, Kyle Higgins and Tim Seeley.
