I was two weeks late picking up my copy of Batman No. 13, and I don’t keep up on the comix news that much. Thus I was a little dismayed to see the die-cut cover.

“I hear that’s selling for $20 bucks on eBay,” said the lady behind the counter.

I smiled and nodded, but inside I thought, “Cripes, are we doing this again?”

I read the comic on the bus ride home. It’s well-constructed, and I’m on record as a fan of Scott Snyder’s. But the whole Joker-with-face-cut off is just a little too “Se7en” for me, and I am a little short on cash.

So I put it on eBay.

It was on eBay for a week, with a reserve price of $10. No takers. Part of me is sad it didn’t sell, but part of me is a little relieved.

      The *character redesigns leave a lot to be desired but I’m enjoying the Snyder run on Batman. Dare I say it, more so than Morrison. The Court of Owls arc was far more satisfying than Batman:RIP ever was. It was the only regular series I’ve been buying.

      *with exception to Supergirl’s new threads and the new character design on Wonder Woman, DC’s redesigns are massively shitty. Half of them completely unnecessary. Except for Captain Cold, Mirror Master(bator)… Okay the majority of Flash’s rogue gallery needs to either be revamped or purged.
