“Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77” #5 sounds particularly interesting. It’s set in the “Wonder Woman ’77” era; as such, they’ve aged up the “Batman ’66” cast accordingly. It looks like Dick becomes (a “Batman ’66” version of) Nightwing!

“Scooby-Doo Team-Up” this month features Hong Kong Phooey.

There’s a sizable number of trade paperbacks this month, including “Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes” and “Sandman Mystery Theatre.”

A third volume of “DC Super Hero Girls” is out this month. However, I notice it’s using the New 52 Wonder Woman origin, as Zeus is Diana’s father. Given the growing number of same-sex parents, one would think that Wonder Woman’s traditional backstory would be timely and perfect. Children’s media is also increasingly showing same-sex couples. It’s too bad DC’s opted to go for the New 52 route for this book. However, given the amount of times Wonder Woman’s been revamped/rebooted, I assume her traditional origin will come back someday (if Rebirth hasn’t done so already).
