Hello! And welcome back to Comic Booked’s longest-running column, Baturday! This is the place we talk about all things Batman. If you haven’t done so yet, make sure you check out last week’s releases before you dive into what came out this week. We talk about news and spoilers here, too. So be warned! Here’s the list of all the Batman-related stuff DC put out in the first week of August 2021, with our newly-added BUY button for the must-haves:
- Batman #111
- Crime Syndicate #6 (of 6) – BUY
- The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox #1 – BUY
- Justice League #66 – BUY
- Justice League Infinity #2 – BUY
- Suicide Squad #6 – BUY
- Suicide Squad: Get Joker! #1 – BUY
- The Swamp Thing #6 (of 10) – BUY
- The Suicide Squad on HBO Max
And my pick of the week is… SUICIDE SQUAD: GET JOKER!!!!
So there you have it, folks. Tons of fantastic releases this week. The Joker spin-off miniseries proves that Matthew Rosenberg should get the chance to write the ongoing when this series ends. Crime Syndicate wraps up nicely, or rather, quite evilly, but still a good time. And both Justice League and the animated universe continuation comic give us plenty of good guy action. The Suicide Squad debuted in theaters and on HBO Max and is a lot of fun, but the true winners of the week are the Squad comic books, of which there are plenty (not to mention the great variant covers promoting the film), including but not limited to The Swamp Thing, Suicide Squad, and my pick of the week featuring Brian Azzarello and Alex Maleev bringing their A-game, Get Joker! But what did you think about this week’s Batman-related comics? Let us know on social media and let’s keep the conversation going. See you next Baturday!
