Welcome to another installment of Monday Telemetry, a weekly blog from The Launchpad that covers some of the more interesting releases or events that are coming to the store this week.
This should solve some of the confusion between Bruce Wayne's ambiguous "death" in RIP and his showdown with Darkseid from Final Crisis.
Grant Morrison and Tony Daniel re-team to tell the exciting 2-part, untold tale of Bruce Wayne and his adventures between BATMAN R.I.P. and FINAL CRISIS! What happened to Batman - and Dr. Hurt, for that matter - after the devastating events at the climax of R.I.P.? And what secrets within this story point toward THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE?
PREDATORS PRESERVE THE GAME (ONE-SHOT)
No doubt will contain Predators spoilers!
Set a few weeks after the climax of Robert Rodriguez's Predators film, the remaining survivors still struggle to find some existence on the alien planet where they are hunted. Hope of outlasting the alien hunters still lives; they have a plan to get away, and they just might be able to pull it off!
SWEETS #1 (OF 5)
A spree killer terrorizes New Orleans days before Hurricane Katrina makes landfall. Detective Curt Delatte just buried his only daughter, he's in no condition to work. But when the bodies pile up, he masks his grief and joins the hunt through the bowels of the Big Easy. It won't be long until his city, and his evidence, gets washed away.
X-MEN ORIGINS: DEADPOOL #1
Sounds like Interview With A Deadpool, should be great!
You may have heard there's a Deadpool movie in the works. Anyway, Wade Wilson's heard the same thing - and he's determined to tell his own story before Hollywood screws it up. Deadpool even hires his own screenwriter, who manages to get the Merc With a Mouth to open up like never before-revealing not only his origin story, but shocking details you've never heard before. We're talking Oscar™ -worthy stuff here, people. That is, unless Hollywood manages to screw it up anyway...
