Big news in the comic industry as DC Comics moves to split from Diamond Comics Distributors, the long-time monopoly on distributing comics from major publishers to shops around the US. That won’t impact this week though as DC revisits “Batman: The Animated Series” with series producers Paul Dini and Alan Burnett doing a limited miniseries. And if you loved the Oscar-winning Parasite (as you should), revisit it in graphic novel form!
