Baturday: Batman in March 2017

Baturday is going monthly for a while, to make way for the new column (which you hopefully read yesterday) and add a little bit of time for side projects for your CCO here at Comic Booked.  There were a lot of great releases this month for the Dark Knight and his friends and foes, and I’m not going to lie… it was really difficult picking a best book this month.  Lots of solid 5/5 scores were given to a fantastic line of reads and views.  Here are my thoughts on this month’s releases:

..and my pick of the month is…  BATMAN!!!

 

Arrow seems to be simultaneously picking up and dragging, Legends is still a lot of fun, and Powerless makes me laugh every week.  As for the comics, the Bat books are great.  Nightwing was a close contender for pick of the month, as was Detective Comics.  And Super Sons.  And Titans.  But that Turtles crossover was on the radar as well, so who knows.  It’s a great time to be a Batman fan.  And I’m glad to see that DC has abandoned the rest of their great properties (like they essentially did in the New 52, or as I like to retroactively refer to it, “the Batman universe”).  But enough of my thoughts.  What did you think?  Let us know in the comments section or on social media between now and the end of next month.  We’ll see you soon for another edition of Comic Booked’s longest-running column, Baturday!
