Batman # 686  In case you might not have heard, but Batman is dead. Well that’s what DC wants everyone to believe; too bad Marvel released that Obama/Spidey book the same week Batman supposedly died. Not much play for Bruce taking the dirt nap (maybe it’s because we all know he’s coming back). Okay so DC dropped the ball (again) on this one, but they are back with a biggie. Anyone remember how big the Superman story written by Alan Moore called ‘Whatever happened to the man of tomorrow’ was? Yes it’s still one of the best Superman stories ever told. Now enter Batman. Alan Moore isn’t returning for this one, but Neil Gaiman is coming on board for the ‘Whatever happened to the cape crusader?’ 2 part story that promises to be a high-quality, well written, demandable comic book. Andy Kubert is on board to work his great illustrations into a comic that has mass appeal already. Kubert only helps the value of this comic. Do not miss this comic collectors, it’s going to be a sure fire hit with multiple printings to follow.

Masquerade # 1  Here’s a comic coming from Dynamite that has some potential. Good storytelling, good artwork and a virgin variant from John Romita Sr. The variant, if you could get it should be bought. A John Romita Sr. variant is a great treasure to have, a virgin variant is even better. Buy this one and hold on to it for a long time. Romita Sr. will be legend one day, or maybe he already is, whatever your opinion, hold onto that as well. It’s yours.
