DC is wrapping up its Dark Knights one-shots this week with a closer glimpse at the group’s leader. Who is the terrifying Batman Who Laughs? What terrible tragedy could have transformed Batman into his worst enemy? Expect a lot of questions to be answered in this issue. And given the creative team, don’t be surprised if this winds up being the best of all the Dark Knights one-shots.
By writer Christos Gage & artist Tomas Giorello | Valiant
2017 has been a great year for those looking to jump into Valiant’s superhero universe, thanks to all the new reader-friendly relaunches. Ninja-K is the latest example of that trend, as a new creative team kicks off a new status quo for the secret agent ninja. Colin King recently learned that he’s the latest in a long line of super-soldiers created in service of the British government. But now a mysterious enemy is hunting down the other Ninja Programme subjects one by one, and Ninja-K just happens to be the next one on the list.
By writer Chip Zdarsky & artist Adam Kubert | Marvel
We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this series at the moment. The most recent issue easily ranks among the best comics Marvel has published this year. And now, Spectacular Spider-Man is joining the Marvel Legacy fray and tackling Peter Parker’s new status quo. Based on the cover, it looks as though his legal and personal problems have only just begun. We’re excited to see Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert explore this darker time for Peter, as well as the fallout of his recent meeting with J. Jonah Jameson.

It’s been several months since we’ve had a new issue of East of West. At least, the drought is over as Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta kick off the next phase of their apocalyptic series. This issue looks very promising indeed, as it allows readers to catch up with Death and his son Babylon. We’re eager to see more of that dynamic and learn what lies in store for these characters as this complex saga continues to unfold.
