Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #699

It's not quite an anthology title anymore, and its content is completely unlike the last 20 years of stories. But the art is amazing, and Boom has a potential kids magnet here.

R.E.B.E.L.S. Annual: Starro the Conqueror #1

Justice League: Cry for Justice #4

"Cry for Justice" continues on, with less crying, but the same amount of unnecessary torture, infighting, and grumpiness. Jay Garrick and the Shade appear to make things a little more interesting.
