Baturday: Batman in the Second Week of April 2021


Welcome back to Comic Booked’s longest-running column, Baturday!  Make sure you check out the last edition before you read all about the second week of April.  Here’s a list of all the Batman-related releases from this week:

  • Batman: The Detective #1 (of 6)
  • The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #1 (of 12)
  • Batman: Urban Legends #2
  • Challenge of the Super Sons #1 (of 7)
  • The Joker #2
  • Batwoman on CW
  • Black Lightning on CW

And my pick of the week is:


So there you have it.  Taylor and Kubert deliver a fun throwback to the Morrison era.  Tomasi brings us another delightful installment of his Super Sons saga.  Tynion takes us down a somewhat different path in Jim Gordon’s journey to take down the Joker once and for all.  Mystery Incorporated meets the Dark Knight… again, in what feels like one of the best kid-friendly interpretations of the Batman in years.  And Urban Legends is the anthology I didn’t know I needed, with the Zdarsky Red Hood and Rosenberg Grifter stories making Gotham a little bit more lively than most Bat family tales.  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!
