Exclusive Cover Reveal: BATMAN ETERNAL #30

Clay Mann's cover can now be seen and enjoyed.

With DC's weekly titles, when the solicits and covers are released, we don't usually get to see all four covers for the month. As the release date gets nearer, the remaining covers are unveiled.

BATMAN ETERNAL #30 is on sale October 29. Check out Clay Mann's cover for the issue. Whose skull is that?

Carved in the stone to Batman's right "H.Q + Puddin x.x.x". That's a cute touch :)

I believe his story was Batman: The Cult. Plus he's been mentioned a bunch in this series; mostly got a ton of focus around issues 15-17.

ah I remember, although most likely it never happened due to the New 52. Ah DC, why can't you leave your continuity alone?!

No, the story was referenced in Eternal already so its still in continuity,

Hmmmm...think it's more of a metaphor than someone's actual skull. Covers are always misleading.

Men. Eternal needs to focus on hush. Deacon blacktire isn't that interesting.

That cover reminds me of the Scarecrow levels in the Arkham Asylum game.

I just hope the artwork within the book itself doesn't suck as much as batman eternal #8-10 and #25-26.
I rather want Paul Jenkins to do the artwork, but it is what it is.

@mickeymayhew: The Cult had Batman being brainwashed in a few weeks into killng a complete stranger on Blackfire's orders with no will of his own.

It was DC trying to be gritty and realistic. And Jason Todd saving the bat dufus, again.

My biggest gripe was that it takes years to get someone into Manchurian Candidate territory, and the target must be cased t be especially weak minded and malleable. I understand making Batman human; but a breakdown like what he had makes him mentally weaker than 99.9 percent of the population. And obsessive/borderline autistic people like Batman during the Todd years would be harder to reprogram. The art was great, though.
