  2. The Big Stuff this Week

Batman #53 is a phenomenal comic which is a look at Batman’s fallibility.

Batwoman #18 is the conclusion of a great run which ended as a result of DC’s creative soft reboot (Phase II). However, the issue is a great conclusion which should be enjoyable even if you didn’t read a single issue of the run (which I know you didn’t…)

Am looking forward to reading Damage and Harley Quinn as those are the two I am currently keeping up with (keeping up in the sense of reading the latest issues digitized). Also glad to see Batman Family is being digitized again, so close to completing that series. Beyond that, while I like that they digitized 12 comics this time, most of them are pretty niche so not really into any of them sadly. I like the Charleston characters, but I remember I tried reading LAW when it first came out back in the day and was not impressed and never finished. Might be worth a second try.

Currently it’s Christmas in August for the digitizing! Old Detective, two different Legion and Lois Lane???!!!???

I was hoping to sleep this week…


When the frack are we ever going to get Justice League International. My second favorite Justice League comic that I also never got to finish.

Or am I literally the only one who cares about that book because no one on these boards talks about it even though it is among the best of the eighties.

There are a decent number of JLI titles available. Unfortunately not that one, BUT I did enjoy the New 52 Justice League International (One of the few New 52 series I’ve enjoyed)
