This Wednesday sees the publication of Batgirl #37 and Guardians Of The Galaxy #7. And while everyone is distracted by the publication of House Of X #1, a few comic book speculators are wondering about those two comics.
The first promises the appearance of a new Oracle – the role that Barbara Gordon used to play until she got her legs back, Bleeding Cool ran previews at the weekend for the Batgirl #37 comic book out this Wednesday, giving us a better look at the character – and noted that the DC’s Year Of The Villain cardstock $5 comic features the new Oracle on the cover.
The look inside the comic…
And covers on Batgirl #38 and #39 to come.
And so copies #37 of that are slightly up on eBay, selling copies for seven bucks. People are looking for it to jump straight off the shelf.

While others are wondering about Guardians Of The Galaxy #7, billed as The Death Of Rocket Raccoon. It’ll be the start of a big Guardians Of The Galaxy story from Donny Cates, Cory Smith and David Curiel that will run through Marvel’s cosmic history, with a lot of Jim Starlin-sourced stories.
But if all you are looking for is raccoon death, and I know some of you are, you may want to look elsewhere – for now, at least. Maybe check back in a couple of issues.I am told not to look for this cover shot in the comic itself. And #8 to be published next week… the solicits and cover should have clued everyone in.
