He's Got Issues #203.2: DC Comics, 10/10/18

New Releases from DC Comics for October 10, 2018

Catwoman #4

(Cover A Joelle Jones), $3.99

(W) Joëlle Jones (A) Fernando Blanco (A/CA) Joëlle Jones

Things have gone from bad to worse for Selina in Villa Hermosa. Her new city has taken away what little she was able to carry with her from Gotham, and her rap sheet offers scant protection when local crooks frame her for murdering two police officers. The law has caught up with her and Catwoman is in the clink, giving her time to reflect on her life and all the things that led her to Vila Hermosa. Turns out she didn't choose the move randomly or just to get away from the Batman. This special interlude issue takes us back in time to explode some previously unknown truth bombs from Selina Kyle's past. BATWOMAN artist Fernando Blanco joins Joëlle Jones to explore a couple of the early versions of Catwoman's nine lives.

(Cover A John Paul Leon), $3.99

(W) James Robinson (A) Stephen Segovia (CA) John Paul Leon

Batman is hot on the trail of a murder suspect, but first he'll have to get past Two-Face. Even though Harvey Dent seems to be asserting control, how long before he becomes a sociopathic criminal once again? More importantly, what is Dent's connection to the victim, and what does it all have to do with the terrorist organization of slithering serpents called Kobra?! Whatever it is, it's big enough to reunite Jim Gordon and former district attorney Harvey Dent, and that meeting alone is worth the cover price.

Batman's newest partner...Two-Face? As Harvey Dent's persona asserts fragile control over the villain's psyche, the Dark Knight, Commissioner Gordon and their ally-turned-enemy-turned-ally must work together to stop Kobra's terrorist attack against Gotham City.

Against the advice of Cain and Abel, Erzulie steers her houseboat back into the rip between the worlds in an effort to return to her realm. But how will she find her way back, and what danger lies ahead in the otherworldly waters she finds herself sailing?

Meanwhile, Latoya's sisters and her girlfriend watch her comatose body in the hospital, praying she'll wake up, not realizing they'd best be careful what they wish for...

Plastic Man #5 (Of 6), $3.99
