And my pick of the week is… BATMAN!!!
So there you have it, folks. What a fantastic week for Batman readers. The newest issue of the Joker spin-off miniseries has me really hoping that Matthew Rosenberg will be taking over the main Joker title soon. Young Justice and the Flash made for some quality DC TV this week. Justice League Infinity, Superman: Son of Kal-El, Suicide Squad had some fun Batman-adjacent storytelling going on. And this week’s debut of the new creative team for Batman proves that Batman can (and should!) be fun. Seriously. Joshua Williamson might have had the strongest debut issue since the days when Scott Snyder was helming the main Bat book. and 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!
