The latest candidate for best-issue-of-the-run, Batman #37 found Batman and Superman teaming up on a mission so dangerous, so sinister—A DOUBLE DATE. Seriously, they took Lois and Cat to a superhero-themed fair, everyone switched suits, and it was awesome. The characters felt spot-on, the banter was delightful, and the artwork was pitch-perfect. Even if you’ve never picked up an issue of Batman, you can follow along and enjoy yourself. Go get it.
The second issue in a new run, Justice League #35 continued to impress, with fun art and a big, solid battle smack dab in the middle. Again, the barrier to entry is pretty low here, even if you missed last issue, so if you like the Justice League, give it a shot. And if you’re one of those folks who dropped this title earlier because of dissatisfaction with the old creative team, definitely give it another shot now.
Trinity #16 was a decent-enough one-and-done featuring an unlikely team-up. Superman #37 and Super Sons #11 were the first two parts of the “Super Sons of Tomorrow” crossover event. Outside of Gotham, Aquaman was gorgeously-illustrated, if a bit wordy. All-in-all, I feel like it was a pretty good crop of books this week. What did you pick up? Let us know in the comments.
