And my pick of the week is… DETECTIVE COMICS!!!
So there you have it, folks. What a fantastic week for Batman readers. Annuals are usually a cash grab, but with writers like Matthew Rosenberg, Tom Taylor, and Joshua Williams just doing their thing for a few more pages, Nightwing, Robin, The Joker, and Detective Comics (my pick this week, leading directly into the epic “Shadows of the Bat” storyline). it’s safe to say that this year’s annuals are a different beast entirely. Young Justice was also a great watch this week, the Authority may have met their match in the pages of Action Comics, and Williamson gives us another multiversal romp in the pages of the new Justice League miniseries. 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!
