    Not that I'm aware of, I thought it would keep going since they're getting a annual in August.

    I’m starting to worry that besides Wally they’re trying to change who is in charge on the League solos, and I’m definitely hoping I’m wrong.

    Sad to see Batman/Superman going.

    Otherwise it looks like the usual pickups.

    Turns out Infinite Frontier was secretly 5G all along huh

    But in all seriousness there is still places to read the original heroes so we shouldn't worry.

    While I think it was a little too early to do a Bat-family event, I'm excited for Fear State and I've been enjoying Tynion's run, so I'm excited to see how this goes. I'll be picking up Batman #112 and Batman #113, though I'm not sure how I feel about it going back to double shipping. I've been trying to limit how many monthly books I've been buying for my wallet's sake. I am really interested though, in the Clownhunter back-ups. I've liked the little bit I've read of him so far, and having been missing since December, it'll be fun to see him come back in August for his Secret Files issue, and then in September for the back-ups. I'm hoping this leads to a more consistent presence for him.

    Miracle Molly is not who I would have expected for the next Secret Files issue, when I feel like there's a good amount of classic/pre-existing Bat-characters that could use some love. But she's been fun in Batman so far, and it makes sense to tie into Fear State. She seems to be following the Punchline/Clownhunter path, with Tynion writing a special to flesh out their origin story/backstory before launching more into the character. I wonder how long until we get Ghostmaker's origin story.

    I think this'll be the first Urban Legends issue I don't pick up, as only one of September's stories interests me- Cass in Future State- and the rest don't hold any interest to me. I'm curious as to how long those stories will be, and how soon until we return to more present-day stuff.

    The Joker seems to be digging in more, and I'm glad to see the Punchline back-up seems to be making some real progress. I'm enjoying both stories a lot, and am looking forward to seeing where they go. I am surprised it seems Babs is just now fighting against the Talon from the most recent issue. While #5 is a flashback, I figured that would be dealt with in issue #6.

    Nightwing is joining Fear State, and I know that's likely to be controversial. While I don't think it was necessary, especially so early into Taylor's run, I think it'll be fun to see him join in on the action and flesh out the Fear State story more. I just hope they don't totally ditch and derail Taylor's story, otherwise, it'll start to feel like Higgins' run all over again.

    Robin's just now getting into the tournament itself. It's definitely taken longer than I would have expected from the beginning, but the first couple issues were laying a lot of the groundwork and characters, while 3, 4, and 5 all seem fun and interesting in their own right. I'm just glad to see Damian getting some focus and his own story.

    I enjoyed Second Son a lot, so I plan to pick-up I Am Batman as well. The solicit doesn't give much of an idea what the plan is currently for the book, but I like what Ridley's done and it feels like a fresh, new take that I'm excited a lot for. It reminds me a bit of the Batman Reborn era, with I Am Batman serving kinda like the Batman and Robin book, a chance to flesh out the new Batman and give them their own story and villains. I'm hoping that Ridley is able to build Jace his own rogue's gallery, rather than just leaning on existing Bat-villains.

    Mr. Mxyzptlk resurrecting Calendar Man from his death during A-Day is causing some reality-rattling consequences. If Superman and Batman are going to prevent a fifth-dimensional god-being from compartmentalizing all of existence, they’re going to need to turn to some unlikely allies.

    I just have one question - what is the deal with Catwoman's peekaboo-armpits costume? Is that a thing in fashion? Doesn't that cause the fabric around her shoulders to, like bunch up?

    No, I asked the question 'cause I saw the solicit text. It was unexpected.

    Been wondering that since the costume debuted 3 years ago.

    I gotta say, when first reading the solicits,that the sheer glut of bat books, and their overall dystopian themes discouraged me from starting to collect comics again, for a second. I think I'm glad I get my books through mail order, so I can pick out the books I want with out some comic shop owner trying to sell me on anything bat related. I don't know why people want to read these books, when we have enough of their themes in real life.
