Welcome back to the week after Batman Day!
Batman Day 2016 was a bonafide blast, and Frank Miller, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, and Tom King signed for a battalion of bat fans, and for the Dark Knight himself! If that’s not enough to float your Batboat, the Caped Crusader faces more Monster Men, Jill Thompson’s eagerly-awaited Wonder Woman original graphic novel arrives, Civil War II rages on, and we still don’t know who Clark Kent is! Don’t miss that magazine that features an all-new Walking Dead story regarding Negan’s origins, by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard!

Whatever happened to Bruce Wayne?
Six months have passed since the events of Batman Beyond #16, and Gotham City is bouncing back, but the question still remains: what the heck happened to Bruce Wayne? Batman Beyond Rebirth #1 is by Dan Jurgens, with art and cover by Ryan Sook, variant cover by Martin Ansin!

This fully painted graphic novel is unlike any Wonder Woman tale you have ever read!

Civil War II marches on:
Can Wilson Fisk keep his business afloat with his cronies dropping like flies, and Frank Castle gunning for him, or is this finally the end of the reign of the Kingpin? Civil War II Kingpin #3 is by Matthew Rosenberg, with art by Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, cover by Paul Renaud, variant by Steve Epting! As heroes choose sides and tragedy strikes, Steve takes steps to end the war!

What sort of sorcery is this?
Clea comes back into Doctor Strange’s life as he’s picking up the pieces from the worst beating he’s ever taken, and she’s going to make that battle look like a Boy Scout picnic!
