So there you have it, folks. Tom King’s horrendous climax to Heroes in Crisis is undone in the pages of Flash. The new Space Jam sequel is a Warner Bros. cameo fest that is fun for fans of all ages, as are the newest Scooby-Doo/Batman and Super Sons books. Infinite Frontier keeps us guessing at which dark stories will come together in the main book as well as the Detective, Last Ride, and Future State: Gotham. Huntress goes down the path we all knew she’d go down in the pages of the flagship DC title. The Joker book gives us a glimpse of how great the character can be written if handled by someone as talented as Matthew Rosenberg. And, speaking of Rosenberg, the Wildstorm universe makes its triumphant return in the Grifter story featured in Urban Legends. Let us know what you think on social media and let’s keep the conversation going. See you next Baturday!
