Baturday: Fourth Week of November 2019


Welcome back to everyone’s favorite Batman-themed column here on Comic Booked, Baturday! I’m back again with my thoughts on all things Batman. The fourth week of November was full of great stuff. Here’s my take on this week’s releases:

  • Batgirl #41 – 3.5/5
  • Batman Beyond #38 – 4.5/5
  • Batman vs Ra’s al Ghul #3 (of 6) – 3/5
  • Detective Comics #1,016 – 5/5
  • Justice League Dark #17 – 4/5
  • Red Hood: Outlaw #40 – 4.5/5
  • Supergirl Annual #2 – 3.5/5
  • Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 (One-Shot) – 4/5
  • CW: Arrow – 3/5
  • CW: Black Lightning – 3/5
  • CW: The Flash – 3/5
  • DC Universe: DC Daily – 3/5
  • DC Universe: Harley Quinn – 4/5
  • DC Universe: Titans – 4.5/5

My pick of the week: DETECTIVE COMICS!!!

So there you have it. Lots of great stuff going on in Batman-related books and other media. Tons of great news, previews, and upcoming releases as well. But you all know that. I could talk about all of the great things in the world of Batman from this week, but I’m going to talk about my top three: 1) Peter J. Tomasi is the best living Batman writer. Period. What he’s doing with Mr. Freeze in Detective is amazing and just the tip of the iceberg in terms of how great his writing and character work has been, is currently, and will continue to be. (Side note: He doesn’t make bad puns like I just did.) 2) Titans gave us roughly 3-4 episodes’ worth of material packed into a slightly uneven but enjoyable season finale. 3) I cannot wait for the CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover mega-event! But what are your thoughts? What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming weeks and months? Let us know on social media and we’ll continue the conversation there. See you back here next week for another installment of Baturday!
