Robin & Batman #1 focuses on a period in the Batman canon where Dick Grayson is on the cusp of assuming his identity as Robin. Is he ready? Does Batman think he's ready?
Superman's Infinity War
Now that Superman has said goodbye to those he loved in Action Comics, Superman: Son of Kal-El and Superman and the Authority, it's finally time to head off to Warworld to see what Phillip Kennedy Johnson has planned in renewing Mongul's backstory and who he is as a whole in the world of Superman villains. On top of that, we'll also see what Guardian is up to in the Tales of Metropolis backup but personally, I don't know who needs that beyond die-hard Guardian fans who need to purge what's going on with the character in Checkmate. Shade aside, let's check out Superman and his Authority pals.
Assault On Precinct 13!
Let's head on back to Gotham and check in on how Jace Fox's time as Batman is treating him. You know, since he kind of pulled a double-edge sword last issue where he revealed that he's not the Batman that doesn't kill.... but then also revealed that he's not the Batman that everyone needs to be afraid of for a different reason. Things are crazy in Gotham with The Seer creating militia groups calling themselves the Moral Authority and maybe with all the other Bat-Family members being busy with the Magistrate, Scarecrow, and all-around Fear State, it's on Jace's shoulders to take the Seer down all by himself..... even though it looks like The Seer is going to be The Batgirls' villain as well. Let's check it out.
Meat's Meat And A Man's Gotta Eat
The hunt for the Joker continues this issue as we previously saw Vengeance, the Daughter of Bane, and Jim Gordon team up to hunt down the Clown Prince of Crime..... that is after we saw the origin of Vengeance and the idea that Bane wasn't exactly as we previously thought. That being said, we have a heap of mystery as the Network starts to get uncovered, and in this issue, we'll see how they might be a part of the Court of Owls as well. Let's jump into this issue and see what else we can learn from this title. Let's check it out.
Get Off My Plane!
The mystery behind how and why Cadmus is using the powers of our heroes and giving them to nobodies.... and Kite-Man continues this issue as our heroes go hunting down Lady Vic to find out her connection to this superpowers cabal. Also, we have Superboy in space.... who should have died but was teleported aboard the spaceship of Starfire's sister, Blackfire. Let's jump into this Hypertime/Elseworld story to see if this team feels any better than this issue than it has before. Let's check it out.
