All right, so even later on this feature this week, but I think we’ll all be ok as long as I keep getting them up before running into the next week’s new comics. Also, I’m just going to throw this out there to anyone who happens to read this, if you know who the “old flame” I refer to in the Batman: The Dark Knight summary is, hit me up either here or on twitter, @KehtaamuNgetal, and let me know her name, and if you can her last appearance, it’s kinda bugging me. I feel like I should know the answer. Thanks.
