Posted by October 15, 2018 Comment

One minute, you’re cruising through life, the superhero with the best butt in the DC Universe. Then you’re shot in the head by KGBeast, and sure, your butt is still great, but now you want people to call you Ric and Scott Lobdell is writing your solo series. It happened to Nightwing. Will it happen to Alfred next?

Revealed in DC’s January solicits, Alfred Pennyworth is attacked by another mysterious villain in Detective Comics #995. Not Alfred! Who is hunting down Batman’s allies this time? And what will we call Alfred when he recovers?

We’ll find out in a triple-shot of Detective Comics in January.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
