Batman: Streets of Gotham #1

In its debut, "Batman: Streets of Gotham" seems less the street-level version of a Batman title that we were promised, and more like an extension of Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen's run on "Detective Comics." Now with added Manhunter

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.
