I’ve just decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we learned during the light week of comics will now take place on Monday before we’ve learned it. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter in the slightest. Pencils ready!
Josh Flanagan says try…
By Joshua Williamson and Victor Ibáñez
Revived from the golden age, Captain Midnight is a WWII fighter pilot turned costumed adventurer, and this is the issue to get you up to speed before #1 hits. This collects the three stories from Dark Horse Presents, and Williamson has been doing fun things with Masks and Mobsters, so this is worth a look.
Conor Kilpatrick says try…
By Mark Waid & Matteo Scalera
This issue has several things going for it. First, it’s the start of a new story arc so it’s perfect for new readers to jump on and try. Second, it guest stars Matt Murdock so it’s like an extra issue of Daredevil! Third, the solicitation says “Hulk–on the witness stand” which has the potential for awesome comedy. DAREDEVIL WANT TRUTH? DAREDEVIL CAN’T HANDLE TRUTH!

Batgirl / Robin: Year One TP
By Chuck Dixon, Scott Beatty, Marcos Martín, Alvaro Lopez, Javier Pulido, & Robert Campanella
Timeless and fanciful. Chronicling the first formative years of Barbara Gordon and Dick Grayson’s careers as crime fighters, these tales showcase Batman’s plucky associates at their best. I especially adore Batgirl: Year One, the book that solidified my love for Babs and Jim Gordon, the Veronica and Keith Mars of the DC Universe. It also introduced me to the lithe and charming line of Marcos Martin. Gotham has rarely been so lively. A sure bet for just about any reader.
