Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! #5

Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani step in to help get this title back on a more regular schedule. It is a different book with those two at the controls, but in an energetic sense, the enthusiasm is still very much present.

Batman #687

An epilogue to "Battle for the Cowl" might not have been so bad, had "Batman & Robin" #1 not already been released. Instead, it just feels like a step backwards.
