Dude is DC Comics goal to make Bruce Wayne aka Batman show up in every New 52 book? For that matter Gotham City? Seriously, I know the character is popular but this cameo in different books are as crazy as Marvel's Constant events.

 dfcRob Liefeld, Marjorie Liu and Jeff Loeb should start their own comic book company so they can stop messing up comics.

Wow, this looks extraordinarily bad, though I will admit, Liefeld's work has always made me cringe. Like a free comic that comes with your cereal or somethin', know what I mean? Also, who is this Blockbuster character? I'm not really well versed in the DCU, but from this preview he reminds me of a hippie hulk, 'specially with those sweet purple pants.

Was reading this for three issues, but just not feeling the art or the story that much. The art was okay with me for a while but it's only so much you can take before you start thinking that doesn't look right.

i guess he'd have to be in hawk and dove right before it gets cancelled. he cant miss his window of oppurtunity. enough is enough DC. we get it. batman is awesome but you tarnish his awesomeness by putting him in every title! and in a title that has one of the lowest sales no-less. putting him in it isnt gonna make people read it anymore! pssh even from the previews not appealing. i didnt even see batman or dove..i saw hawk..who was crossed of this issue? 0.o uggh lol

So DC is continuing on its quest to put Batman in everything it possibly can. I'm waiting for his appearance in Demon Knights.

In other news, Rob Liefeld still sucks balls. Somebody needs to break his hands so he can't draw anymore.

@nightwing91: I know, I know. But I... I WANTZ BLOCKIE BACCCCCCCCK.

Seriously though, I know that he could be back, I just wanted to emphasize how much more I prefer Roland over Mark. Mostly because one is a Nightwing villain.

To be fair Dick as Robin did battle Mark, and he was more enjoyable as Mark was nothing but a dumb brute. Course, if Underworld Unleashed didn't happen in the New 52 then Roland wouldn't have his intelligence and would be essentially the same boat.

Who's to say he won't be back, I mean Mark is back.We could see Roland become Blockbuster, but having him being Blockbuster now wouldn't really make sense.

wow, that art is just bad. The writing is just horrid. Why did DC put Leifeld on MORE books if this one is getting cancelled? I love the concept behind Hawk and Dove but this makes me lose interest in them.

Ha! Liefeld's art just gets more and more hilarious with his giant crotches and fun house mirror proportions....and, uh, is Hawk giving Blockbuster some "mouth service" in that full page? lol

I was just going to ask, what IS Blockbuster doing there anyway? I thought both of them were dead nowadays....then again, with New 52 revamping a few things here and there, makes you wonder how they're going to explain Dick Grayson vs Roland Desmond in this semi-new continuity...

its dissapointing because the overall idea of the storyline seemed interesting enough, like there was a lot they could do with it, but between the god awful writing and the terrible artwork its just an unreadable book

Hawk and Dove is one of my favorite DC duo's but thanks to Liefeld they now go back into comic book limbo..... Seriously any artist would been better than Liefeld. He can't even draw Bats right.

Batman is DC#1 so it is important for him to appear at least once in every DC books lol

Thus we must have batman's mandatory appearance at least once in every comic

I don't know how this stayed the course this comic sucks and putting Batman on the cover won't save it. It's the same with every comics seems DC are really trying to milk Batman and that he is the only desent character they have thats popular. Like I said before every DC comic should have Batman in it thats pretty much DC's way of thinking. It's starting to get annoying that DC have no idea how to write stories that are good and think Batman will save the day.

They did this to Blockie?

I don't even...

DC, I'd like the criminal mastermind with a need for an ape's heart back please. Pwetty, Pwetty please.

Looks like they've went back to the Mark Desmond version.Which with the status of all the Nightwing stuff unclear it makes as much sense as anything.

We should make Bingo cards using all the different New 52 books and play "Batman Cameo Bingo."

@Cafeterialoca: Probably not. I was disappointed in the series.

@sterlinggates: I was too extreme. I edited my previous post. Sorry. I imagine that there are a ton of things that we readers don't know about how/why the series is getting cancelled.

H&D made my list of titles to pick up from the reboot purely on the strength of your name. I didn't expect what I got from the series. I do look forward to reading your future work.

This art is mediocre. What I mean by that is that this actually is among the best Liefeld stuff I've seen.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed with my work, jsphsmth. I hope you'll give Rob's writing a chance. He definitely takes the book in a different direction than I would've and makes the series his own!

does anyone really care -- as long as Leifield is drawing it I don't think anyone really cares about this title at all. DC are you listening?

Legendary creator? more like infamous.
