Fans of Batman are in for an early Thanksgiving treat, as a new teaser image for next spring's new Bat-book "Batman: Eternal"shows the entire gang and then some enjoying a Happy Thanksgiving lunch, with the heroes, allies, villains, usual suspects... And even some surprises in store.
The tease from DC Comics drops courtesy of Newsarama, and there be some lively faces on the artwork courtesy of Batman/ Detective Comics artist Jason Fabok. If you look closely besides Batman, Batwoman, Batwing, Batgirl, Commissioner Gordon, Catwoman, Professor Pyg, and other familiar characters from the Batman universe, there are some new faces who haven't appeared in The New 52 that have been intentionally teased and obscured, particularly one character beside Batman and Red Robin that's wearing a pink jacket. Could it probably be... Stephanie Brown?! That's certainly what's being teased here, and longtime fans of the character have waited for that chance to occur, and it may just happen soon when Batman: Eternal comes out. Missing ominously is Nightwing, who's fate in the current main DC crossover series "Forever Evil" looks grim with each passing issue. We'll find out soon enough what the status of the DC New 52 Universe will be come March when the series concludes... And then an eventual time skip of "5 years later" will occur as well.
