Hello there, Batman fans! And welcome back to Comic Booked’s longest-running column, Baturday! Make sure you check out the last edition before you read all about the first week of August. Here’s what came out this week:
- Batman #96
- Batman: The Adventures Continue #3
- Dark Nights: Death Metal: Legends of the Dark Knights #1 (One-Shot)
- DCeased: Dead Planet #2 (of 7)
- Justice League #50
- Young Justice #17
- DC Universe / CW — Stargirl
And my pick of the week is:
- YOUNG JUSTICE!
So there you have it. Young Justice remains the best team book on the stands. The Batman animated universe is equal parts intrigue and nostalgia every issue. The Joker War rages on and continues to prove that James Tynion IV really is the heir apparent to Scott Snyder in terms of Batman writers go. The first Death Meal one-shot gives us several awesome (yet terrifying) glimpses into the newest round of evil Batmen from the Dark Multiverse. And Stargirl better give us some Solomon Grundy in next week’s season finale. I think it’s pretty safe to say that it was yet another solid release week for the Bat family of books. Let us know what you missed, what you’re looking forward to, and how you’re doing. We’d love to hear from you on social media. See you next Baturday!
