If every week has a theme, this week’s is clearly Kingdom Come.  The mini-series is mentioned here and there, in titles such as Catwoman, Justice League International, Suicide Squad and more.

Other than Kingdom Come, the week marks the return of many 90s characters such as Kon-El, Steel, and an old JLI crew too.  Most importantly, Batman: Shadow of the Bat issue will feature a team-up between Azrael (!) and Batman.  I will be picking up that issue for sure.
