[shadow=green,left,300]Okay..for you fans of The Batman Strikes...be aware of the following scoop from LoG:
Issue #10 was slated to be that one focused on Alfred that Chris mentioned to us in our last live chat and Biill has spoken of here on the forum. Well thats been pushed back to #11 by DC, and #10 will feature a different writer/artist team, to give the current team a production "cushion" if you will. That way that have a month to play with should anything go wrong.
All in all it'll be interesting to see an issue kinda out of place and its nice to let Chris and Bill have a breather! Nice thinkin' DC. Though I will miss that beautiful Christopher Jones artwork for a month.[/shadow]
Sounds interesting. Though it will be very odd not having Bill and Chris at the helm of what has become one of my favorite books, even if only for one issue.
[shadow=green,left,300]same here peev. I just have bad flashbacks to when Batman Adventures did this exact same thing for issue #9...they took Ty, Rick and Terry off it for a month..and it was simply terrible, IMO. Now I have high hopes that they'll bring in someone good for Strikes #10. I'll pick it up and give it a chance either way.
hmm Will senor Matsuda be doing the cover for this one as well?[/shadow]

That's the first I've seen of that cover art, but I imagine it'd be for #11 - the Alfred story. That issue will follow Alfred as he tried to keep Wayne Manor and the Batcave running smoothly while Batman deals with The Penguin and other trouble. So if that's not the cover for that issue, I'd be very surprised...
"Criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot. My disguise must be able to strike terror into their hearts. I must become a creature of the night - dark, terrible... I shall become a bat!''
here's the solicit info for #10...keep in mind this is ACTUALLY for #11
THE BATMAN STRIKES! #10
Written by Bill Matheny, art by Christopher Jones and Terry Beatty, cover by Jeff Matsuda.
Reflecting the cartoon on Kids WB! The Penguin's got Batman on the ropes, and the Dark Knight's last hope is...Alfred? The keeper of the Batcave may be the only hope Batman has, but even this newer, stranger dynamic duo may not be able to save Gotham City.
[shadow=green,left,300]Everyone please welcome writer Matthew K. Manning to our forum!
he's another shining example of those great few in the industry, willing to take time out of their busy lives to interact a bit with their fans. You may know Matthew from a past interview we did with him in 2003, in regard to his Justice League Adventures work. [/shadow]

Thanks for the intro, Matt.
Hey everyone. I just thought I'd drop by and introduce myself. I'm Matthew K. Manning, and I'll be the writer for the fill-in issue of The Batman Strikes, issue # 10. The issue features the return of Man-Bat, a riot in Arkham Asylum, and a college field trip gone horribly wrong. I can't wait to hear any and all feedback for the issue, good and bad. If you’re wondering about my past work, check out Justice League Adventures #’s 14 and 33, or Spider-Man: Unlimited # 7. My first issue of Justice League Adventures was also reprinted in the Friends and Foes digest, now in its third printing.
So anyway, I’ll post more information when I get it. Talk with you all soon.
Toonzone / Worlds Finest just put up the cover and description for the new issue. Been loving Man-Bat's appearances in the show and his previous appearance in Strikes! was great!! This one will be just as good, no doubt...
majorhoy: Where is everybody?
