So there you have it.  Tons of great opportunities to check out all things Batman this week.  We get some Bat family solo stories in the newest anthology one-shot, Deadman appears in the pages of Wonder Woman, we get a glimpse into more of the Future State and other dark parts of the multiverse in the new black and white Gotham series and full-color Zdarsky-penned Last Ride, wholesome team-ups with both Scooby-Doo and the Super Sons, a dark caper that just keeps getting darker in the solo Joker title, and a European mystery further deepening in The Detective.  Not to mention the best Batman anthology series in years with a special focus on the Red Hood and Grifter tales in Urban Legends, gaining the book my pick of the week spot yet again.  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!
