If Scott Snyder co-writes it, a Quick Pick will come.

Snyder and Kyle Higgins tackle Gotham’s family history through a new mini-series in Batman Gates of Gotham #1. We’ve never really fully explore Gotham’s past in-depth and it looks like current events in the Bat-universe are forcing the heroes to look back on that. Say what you will about Grant Morrison’s run on all things Batman as of late – it’s at least opened new ground for other writers to explore in the already-rich Batman mythos.

Meanwhile, Judd Winick jumps on Batman and Robin #23 with a new arc on Jason Todd. Nothing we haven’t seen before, but it’s Winick writing a character he helped bring back a few years ago – we’re guaranteed something will be brewing and it’s not beer.

Uncanny X-Force #10 takes us into the Dark Angel saga that Rick Remender had been plugging at the March comic cons. We fully focus on Archangel’s struggles to control the inner rage Apocalypse is responsible for and it looks like that will be taking us to the Age of Apocalypse. 90’s nostalgia continues to run amuck in this book and it’s pure bliss for those that are into that.
