Batman 66, Dinosaurs Attack, & Red Sonja
Batman ’66 #1– A pitch perfect first issue. Jeff Parker and Jonathan Case were the perfect pairing for this title, infusing the story with a great sense of fun and playfulness. They fully know what they are working on, playing just the right amount of homage while straight up acknowledging the kitchiness and more ridiculous aspects of the original show.

Ghosted, Thanos Rising, Dawn, & Cable and X-Force
Ghosted #1– Joshua Williamson kicks off with a really strong script and an intriguing plot (think Ocean’s Eleven meets House on Haunted Hill), but the real draw for me is the gorgeous Goran Sudzuka artwork. It’s clean, has a solid narrative flow, and there’s a double page splash of the haunted mansion towards the end of the book that’s a fantastic tone setter.
