DC Comic’s began releasing their November solicits today on their blog, The Source, and it’s gearing up to be a month of truly epic proportions, particularly with the assorted Bat-related titles.

After September’s #0 issues in the New 52 group, the Bats of Gotham will come face to face with their most enduring opponent in their long history: The Joker. The “Death of the Family” story arc, beginning with the group’s #14 issues, will span a number of titles and it’s looking to be quite the game changer.
