A new month takes us closer to the end of the Flashpoint universe and to the beginning of a new one. That hasn’t stopped the bat from taking away the spotlight. Or Robert Kirkman from putting more stock into creator-owned books:


5) Infinite #1
A time-traveler goes back to team up with his younger self to prevent an apocalypse? Kirkman has sold me already, even if Liefeld hasn’t yet.


4) Batman Gates of Gotham #4
While things slowed down a notch last issue, one can only expect it up to pick back up as the Bat team looks for the Architect hunting down the descendants of the founding families of Gotham. Snyder and Higgins are crafting a beauty of a mini-series.


3) Jonah Hex #70
How can they possibly top last issue’s confrontation with Hex’s daddy? Perhaps confronting the one thing he always seems to eludes – death. If this is the way it is to end for our favorite bounty hunter as it leads into the All-Star Western book in September, it shall be such an end.


2) Flashpoint #4
So skinny Superman high-tailed it. Now what for Batman, Cyborg, and Flash? With the war between Aquaman and Wonder Woman hitting close to home, we’ll find out if Barry Allen has enough time to undo what Reverse Flash has brought about.


1) Batman Knight of Vengeance #3
A tie-in picked over the main event? If you read the last issue of Brian Azzarello’s take on the Flashpoint Batman, you’d understand why. We’ll see how it all went down in Crime Alley one more time, only things don’t look too rosy for little Bruce.
