I didn’t get my hands on

I didn’t grab hold of

…I didn’t buy the comic with the Bat-penis, okay?

But here’s what I did buy this week.

From DC

BATMAN/CATWOMAN: THE WEDDING ALBUM – THE DELUXE EDITION – The historic wedding of Batman and Catwoman is commemorated in this must-have collector’s item, featuring the historic wedding issue and the tales leading up to the big day, plus behind-the-scenes design sketches and variant covers. Collects BATMAN #24, 44 and 50, plus the retailer variant covers from issue #50, wedding dress designs by Joëlle Jones, the script to issue #44 and more.

MISTER MIRACLE #11 – If there’s one thing popular fiction has taught us by now, it’s: never make a deal with the devil! And yet Mister Miracle is still listening when Darkseid approaches him with just such a devilish proposition—if Scott sends his newborn son to Apokolips, there will be peace on New Genesis. Since when has Darkseid been famous for his honesty?! It’ll be a miracle if this doesn’t blow up in Scott’s face.

NEW CHALLENGERS #5 – The team returns to Challengers Mountain, only to find it completely obliterated! And without the mountain to replenish their borrowed time, it looks like they’re out of second chances. But for the Challengers to live to fight another day, they’ll need to use a power with a consequence that spells certain doom!

From Dark Horse

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER SEASON 12: THE RECKONING #4 – Buffy, Fray, the Scoobies, and the Slayers are in an epic battle against Harth, and his army of baddies. His attempt to steal the power of the Slayers has brought Buffy and her crew to the turning point that they have been trying desperately to avoid. With all other options spent, it is only Buffy and her sacrifice that can save the world . . .

KOSHCHEI THE DEATHLESS TPB – Sent to kill Hellboy by the Baba Yaga in Darkness Calls, Koshchei the Deathless hinted at a long and tragic life before being enslaved to the Russian witch. Now Koshchei relives every horrible act on his road to immortality and beyond, with none other than Hellboy himself–in Hell.

From Marvel

THOR #5 – GET READY FOR KING THOR AND THE PHOENIX, BUB! In the far future, All-Father Thor reignited the Earth and sparked new life in the universe. But now, something is wiping out other worlds — and Midgard won’t be far behind. Luckily, Thor isn’t the only god left. But is the Phoenix-possessed Wolverine a friend or foe?

That does it for this week’s Showcase. Be sure to come back tomorrow to find out if any of these comics will shine in the Spotlight.
