So, you've probably heard that Batman supposedly died, but was really holed up in a prehistoric cave somewhere. Amongst a lot of huge announcements from DC this week, the biggest for me was the news that Batman would be fighting his way back through time to rejoin the 21st century. Along the way he'll become a caveman, a witchhunter/Puritan adventurer, a pirate, a cowboy, and a private eye. Ohhh, I think I'll be reading some Batman comics again very soon.
The young lady above is Juliet. She, Romeo, Hamlet, Othello, Falstaff, and Puck are the heroes of a new 12-issue mini-series from IDW called Kill Shakespeare. In it, they search for a reclusive wizard named William Shakespeare who may have the ability to assist them in their battle against the evil forces led by Richard III, Lady Macbeth and Iago. This will probably be the greatest story ever written.

I've made no secret about my dislike for Jules Verne or my fondness for HG Wells. Kate Beaton explains exactly why that is so much better than I ever could.
