Prepare yourself for Spidey’s latest event Dark Web, Tom King uniting Warlord, Blue Starman, Metamorpho, Lady Cop, and the Green Team in Danger Street, Spawn’s latest rendezvous with Batman, and more!  As always, Joe and Matt will be using their rating system of “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It,”  but they’re hoping to get a better rating system for Christmas.

Matt’s Pick for Next Week:

Dead Seas #1, IDW. (W) Cavan Scott (A/CA) Nick Brokenshire Ghosts are real and dangerous. But they're also valuable, their ectoplasm capable of curing countless diseases. There's only one problem: harvesting the wonder drug can be just as deadly. Prisoner Gus Ortiz is willing to take the risk in return for a reduced sentence-anything to see his daughter again. All it will take is a few months at sea scraping ectoplasm off the walls of the Perdition, a floating prison containing the most vicious ghosts on Earth. Surrounded by dark waters, Gus soon realizes that angry spirits are the least of his worries. The Poseidon Adventure meets The Haunting of Hill House in this supernatural thriller.

Trade/Graphic Novel of Next Week:

Catwoman Lonely City, DC. (W) Cliff Chiang (A/CA) Cliff Chiang Ten years ago, the massacre known as Fool's Night claimed the lives of Batman, The Joker, Nightwing, and Commissioner Gordon...and sent Selina Kyle, the Catwoman, to prison. A decade later, Gotham has grown up-it's put away costumed heroism and villainy as childish things. The new Gotham is cleaner, safer...and a lot less free under the watchful eye of Mayor Harvey Dent and his Batcops. It's to this new city that Selina Kyle returns, a changed woman...with her mind on one last big score: the secrets hidden inside the Batcave! She doesn't need the money-she just needs to know...who is "Orpheus"? Visionary creator Cliff Chiang (Wonder Woman, Paper Girls) writes, draws, colors, and letters the story of a world without Batman, where one woman's wounds threaten to tear apart an entire city! It's an unmissable artistic statement that will change the way you see Gotham's heroes and villains forever! Collects Catwoman: Lonely City #1-4.
