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 October 2021, with our newly-added BUY & WATCH buttons for the must-haves:
- Are You Afraid of Darkseid? #1 (One-Shot)
- Arkham City: The Order of the World #1 (of 6)
- Batman #114
- Batman: The Adventures Continue: Season Two #5
- The Joker Presents: A Puzzlebox #3 – BUY
- Justice League Infinity #4 – BUY
- Titans on HBO Max – WATCH
And my pick of the week is… THE JOKER PRESENTS: A PUZZLEBOX!!!
So there you have it, folks. A pretty great week for Batman fans. Pretty light week, but the Matthew Rosenberg Joker title leads the pack and has me hoping he’ll take over the main title soon, giving us a little bit of a Hellraiser meets Batman feel with spot-on characterization of the Arkham Asylum inmates. Justice League Infinity continues to be a fun read, and the unpredictable nature of Titans on HBO Max has me on the edge of my seat for every episode . 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!
