Hello there, Batman fans! And welcome back to Comic Booked’s longest-running column, Baturday! A few quick news items before we jump in. King and Fornes are reuniting for a 12-issue Black Label maxi-series featuring Rorscach from Watchmen. Batman and the Outsiders, Justice League Odyssey, and Batgirl join the ranks of soon-to-be-cancelled titles alongside Harley Quinn in October. And the Death Metal one-shots all look fantastic. Tons to look forward to in the weeks and months to come. Make sure you check out the last edition before you read all about the third week of July. Here’s what came out this week:
- Catwoman #23
- Dark Nights: Death Metal #2 (of 7)
- Nightwing #72
- Justice League #49
- Strange Adventures #3 (of 12)
- Teen Titans #43
- DC Universe / CW — Stargirl
And my pick of the week is:
- DARK NIGHTS: DEATH METAL!
So there you have it. The Joker War is just around the corner! And Metal was insane, but Death Metal is smart and matters… and is also very insane. 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!
