    I expect it will be the second-best selling issue of STRIKES of the year, behind Josh Elder's recent Superman/Batman crossover. Cuz you just can't beat Supes and The Bat together!

    Well, I hope it sells well, then I'm a big supporter of Chris' art and he's done great things on the title.

    Well it looks like Chris Jones won't get to do the Wonder Woman issue he was so looking forward to do, considering the next and final issue of Batman Strikes is a Halloween themed story.

    Oh well, issue 49 looks entertaining at least.

    I wonder why DC haven't cancelled Legion of superheroes yet?

    We can hope and pray that the 50th issue will involve Wonder Woman anyway... if only because it will have trick-or-treaters in it and that presents a shred of hope that we could have a story where Batman and Wonder Woman have to mingle with the crowd to catch a criminal. One can hope.

    I guess they're being sympathetic towards LOSH (for the time being) since the show only lasted for 2 seasons. But more likely, they probably don't want to annoy J. Torres even further, who was also the main writer for TTG!

    Look at how long TTG lasted past the show's end; it was almost 30 issues, or 2 and 1/2 years! The reason it never got replaced, as far as I could tell, was because: a.) It lasted a short amount of time and was still getting strong sales, and b.) There was nothing to replace it;all the series that recently ended ended because there were things that replaced them[TTG with Tiny Titans, JLU with Superfriends, TBS with Brave and the Bold]. I think that's what's happening here; they recently started getting really good numbers, and there's also nothing to replace it.

    Just my speculation, though.

    P.S. That cover for "The Batman Strikes!" #49 looks sweet! It's good that the series is going to issue 50. :]

    It'll be interesting to see where Torres takes Brainiac 5 following the events of the series finale. That's the great part about J - he progresses the stories.

    Definitely. But is this issue set after "Dark Victory"? I doubt it, since the villain looks like it's going to be Mordru, not Brainiac 1.0.

    Nice covers, both descriptions are intersting. Let's hope the stories are cool just as well.
