When it was time to solicit its titles that would be on shelves next month, DC Comics announced that April would be "WTF" month
. As part of the initiative, the publisher stated that each comic in April would come with a gatefold cover that, when fully revealed, would shock the reader, making it 100% WTF Certified.
This afternoon, DC Comics made it's first reveal of one of these gatefolds, showing the full cover for Scott Snyder
and Greg Capullo
's Batman #19.
You can check out the first WTF moment after the cut.

Confession: This did not make me say "WTF." Now, if Bruce Wayne actually shot Jim Gordon in the back, it would be a different story. Granted, that would make for a demonstrably awful comic, and would all but assuredly ruin the character, but, I mean... I definitely would have said "What the f**k" the second I saw it. So the mission would be accomplished, I guess?
