Baturday: April/May 2020


Hello there, Batman fans! And welcome back to the first of many new editions of Comic Booked’s longest-running column, Baturday! Due to the halting of shipments of new product, it’s been a bit strange for comic book readers not having a steady flow of comics each and every week. That being said, DC did navigate the pandemic by releasing a few new comics each week while getting some content up on the small screen and some news at our fingertips along the way. So here we are, with a giant-sized two-monthful edition, signaling the return to weekly installments. Here’s what came out while we were all sheltering in place:

  • Batman Beyond #43
  • Batman and the Outsiders #12
  • DCeased: Unkillables #3 (of 3)
  • Harley Quinn #72
  • Joker/Harley: Crminal Sanity #4
  • Justice League #44 + #45
  • Justice League Odyssey #20
  • Lois Lane #10 (of 12)
  • Red Hood: Outlaw #45
  • Suicide Squad #5
  • Teen Titans #41
  • The Terrifics #27
  • CW — Batwoman
  • CW — DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
  • DC Universe / CW — Stargirl
  • DC Universe — All Star Games
  • DC Universe — DC Daily
  • DC Universe — Harley Quinn
  • DVD — Superman: Red Son

And my pick of the month(s) is:


So there you have it. We got some news about the release of the Snyder Cut and the existence of the Ayer Cut of controversial Justice League and Suicide Squad films, respectively. Henry Cavill is returning to the role of Superman (which hopefully means Ben Affleck is close behind). Ruby Rose hung up the cowl of Batwoman and we anxiously await her replacement. And The Batman halts production while the Wonder Woman sequel changes to a fall theatrical release and Gotham City Sirens receives renewed interest from WB. Then there’s all of the comics that came out and got a time to shine without being overshadowed by the top tier titles. I’m excited to get the regular release schedule back, but this was certainly a fun time to catch up on the back issues and do some fun deep dives. Let us know what you missed, what you’re looking forward to, and how you’re doing. We’d love to hear from you on social media. See you next Baturday!
