Hey, man, c’mere. Whatcha looking for man, whattayouse need? Maybe some ice? Smoke? Herb? Ick? Don’t give us that look, you know what ick is. Icarus, baby, the newest stuff on the market. Turn you into the Flash’s slowpoke brother for the next hour, but be careful you don’t take too much. The dopes who can’t handle it light up like a Roman candle when they over-accelerate their bodies. But hey, till then, you’ve got superpowers, maybe even move fast enough to take out the Bat. Imagine the street cred you’d have then.
Quiet, did you hear that? Sounded like rustling up on the skylight.
Hunh. Musta been rats or sumpin’.
Anyway, yeah, Icarus is everywhere in Gotham these days, thanks to the crime lord known as the Squid and the gang called The Bastards of Black Gate. Which is apparently a word you can use in superhero comics these days, but we digress. You want to get your hands on some, you’d better buy it from us, because your only other source is Detective Comics Annual #3, and that’s not out till tomorrow. This preview is what you might call a monopoly on the commodity. Fortunately for you, we’re feeling generous and sharing this first taste for free–
Cheese it! It’s da Bat!
Read the rest tomorrow in Detective Comics Annual #3!
You know we interviewed Charles Soule, right? He told us that “Things Can Fall Apart Any Second” in this book.
