This week we must sadly say goodbye to the current run for one of our favorite caped crusaders with Batwoman #18! In happier news, we have a new title to watch with Crowded #1 which takes place...10 minutes in the future? But likely the most anticipated comic of the week comes from the creative team behind the incredible Jessica Jones comic: Pearl. Issue #1 hits shelves this week, and writer Brian Michael Bendis is promising to deliver something totally different from Jessica Jones, but just as emotionally dense. That sounds like a dream come true comic for us, and we can't wait to get our hands on the first issue this Wednesday.
Let us know which title(s) you're most excited for in the comments section!

This extra-sized anniversary issue also offers a look at the next arc of the series by Mairghread Scott and Paul Pelletier as the monstrous villain Grotesque returns to murder wealthy art owners and defile their bodies to create his own "art." And since this is the issue that keeps on giving, also look for a special backup story by Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini and artist Emanuela Lupacchino.
