Spinning out of the events of “The Joker War” and Detective Comics #1027 comes a tale of the beginning of the end for Gotham City’s status quo. With tensions flaring and a new mayoral candidate making his anti-hero agenda known to the city, Batman and his allies are stretched thin to keep the peace. But just as things couldn’t look any worse, a string of gruesome murders has left a trail of the most corrupt in Gotham City losing their heads…literally. If Batman doesn’t quickly find the killer-the Dark Knight will be next.

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Batman #99 (DC Comics) – Easily the best issue of “Joker War” so far. This is the point where it finally comes together and gets us hyped for Batman #100.

Detective Comics #1027 (DC Comics) – DC celebrates 1000 issues since Batman’s debut. It’s packed full of creators and as always these are a fun read.

Giant-Size X-Men: Storm #1 (Marvel) – Storm is supposed to get the spotlight soon and it begins with this issue. It’ll be a key one from our reading of things.

Guantanamo Voices: True Accounts from the World’s Most Infamous Prison (Abrams Comicarts) – Journalist Sarah Mirk tell the stories of ten people whose lives were shaped by the prison including prisoners, lawyers, social workers, and service members.

Heavy #1 (Vault Comics) – The series is going to be a hit. We already have two positive reviews and more on the way. Read our reviews here and here.

Iron Man #1 (Marvel) – A new volume and a back to basics. We’re excited to see what Christopher Cantwell brings as a writer because his Doom has been amazing.

Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio (Abrams Comicarts) – If you don’t know the history, this is a good place the start.

The Mueller Report (IDW Publishing) – We’ve been excited for this since it was announced. Shannon Wheeler and Steve Duin take on the infamous report giving their own entertaining spin.

Seven Secrets #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was a lot of fun about a secret order protecting something that could potentially change/destroy the world. We’re excited to see where this series goes from the debut and if it can keep up the energy.

Slaughterhouse-Five (BOOM! Studios) – The classic book is adapted into comics for the first time.

Stillwater #1 (Image Comics) – A new horror series from Chip Zdarsky, Mike Spicer, and Ramon K. Perez. Those names alone make it a buy.

Tenacious D: Post Apocalypto (Fantagraphics) -Tenacious D comes to comics in this graphic novel! “Music” comics are a big thing right now and this graphic novel is sure to be wanted by fans of the band.

You Look Like Death: Tales from the Umbrella Academy #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – We loved the issue and you can read our review here. If you’re an Umbrella Academy fan, it’s a buy.

Detective Comics #1027 Features a “Fractured” Future for Batman and the DC Universe and What is the “Black Casebook?”

When DC announced that Detective Comics #1027 would feature some of comics’ greatest storytellers, there was also mention that this must-have comic book would contain …”a few early hints at what’s in store for the future of the Caped Crusader!”

DC also said that fans would have to wait until September 15 to find out, but that’s not fair, so here’s a first look at two stories revealing more about what’s to come, not just the Dark Knight, but all of the DC Universe!

Written by Dan Jurgens with layouts and finished art by Jurgens and Kevin Nowlan, “Generations: Fractured” pits Batman against a would-be gang of museum vandals, led by Calendar Man. As the Dark Knight tries to stop him from torching priceless artifacts, a mysterious flash of light appears to break reality, and Batman finds that everything is different in Gotham, as he’s transported back to 1939!

Eisner award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Dan Mora team up to tell a tie-in story to “The Joker War.” In “A Gift,” The Joker’s attack on Batman and Gotham City leaves a GCPD officer dead. His partner identifies the perpetrator as the Caped Crusader, swearing that he’ll bring him to justice. This tragedy forces Batman to reluctantly open the pages of a mysterious “black casebook,” the contents of which are yet to be known.

Hardcore Batman fans can look forward to some of their favorite writers and artists taking part in this landmark issue, including Greg Rucka/Eduardo Risso, Grant Morrison/Chris Burnham, James Tynion IV/Riley Rossmo, Tom King/Walter Simonson, and Scott Snyder/Ivan Reis. They’re also joined by Kelly Sue DeConnick with John Romita Jr. and Klaus Janson, Marv Wolfman/Emanuela Lupacchino/Bill Sienkiewicz, Brian Michael Bendis/David Marquez and more top creators!

Detective Comics #1027 arrives at open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers on Tuesday, September 15 with a retail price of $9.99.
