Batman #39 (DC)
The penultimate chapter of “Endgame”, but can there honestly be more shocking moments in store? Granted, we have to find out what the deal is with Batman’s biggest nemesis and just what exactly IS the Joker?
Gotham by Midnight #4 (DC)
There’s a giant insect monster attacking Gotham City. But that’s not really in the purview of the Dark Knight and that’s why the Night Shift and Dr. Szandor Tarr are on the case.
Chew #46 (Image)
The new item on the menu is change for Tony Chu. He’s got a new partner, a new boss, and all new problems to deal with. Same appetite though.
Spider-Gwen #1 (Marvel)
In many universes, the young and beautiful Gwen Stacy met an untimely end. But in at least one of those she is the web-swinging Spider-Gwen! After her first appearance in the Edge of Spider-Verse tie-in, which sold like hotcakes, she has a new adventure but what friends and foes are waiting for her? Jason Latour (Wolverine and the X-Men) and Robbi Rodriguez (also Wolverine and the X-Men) spin a web of fun in this one.
Thor Annual #1 (Marvel)
As is the norm with annuals in the current publishing zeitgeist, this issue features a few different stories by various writers and artists. One of those writers is the former WWE superstar CM Punk. Apparently he had some free time.
