ComiXology is having yet another sweet sale today through November 12th, 2013. You can snag any of the volume one DC New 52 Bat-books for $3.99 each.

Toronto-based creator Ray Fawkes is quickly becoming one of DC Comics hottest writers. He has been turning out work nonstop on the darker side of the DC Universe, in the pages of “Justice League Dark” and “Constantine”. Fawkes’ writing brings a sort of Hitchcockian cinematic writing style to the characters, and he’s now taking that to the forefront of DC Comics with the new ongoing series “Trinity of Sin: Pandora”.
Fawkes sat down with Bloody-Disgusting at this year’s FanExpo to discuss his approach to John Constantine, moving the character out of “Hellblazer” and into the DCU, his work on “Pandora”, and his upcoming graphic novel “The Spectral Engine” coming out in October from McClelland & Stewart.
