Celebrate Batman Day with these free Batman Comics. There are a great mix of comics here from Batman’s very first appearance to comics based off the classic television series Batman: The Animated Series. Also included in this list are stories by some of the greatest names in comics such as Neil Gaiman and Brian Bolland, just to name a few.
Writers Al Ewing and Rob Williams, along with artist Simon Fraser, bring a series that is true to the Matt Smith rendition of Doctor Who while bringing their own personal touches. Whovians will be very happy with Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #1, which is full of touching moments, humour and a new companion. And for those who are still unsure I have included a preview.

As normal, I will include reading recommendations so you can go on to read these artist work on Batman.
When Celine and Tucker wake up to find that their parents are missing they must use all their DIY know-how to find them in this strange new world, ravaged by a ecological disaster.

In this free comic round-up I have tried to find a great mixture of comics from a variety of genres and publishers. This edition will see horror, supernatural, true crime, drama, superheroes, science fiction, politics and all ages adventure all represented. With this much variety, hopefully there is something that will appeal to almost every one.
This week sees the début of Dark Engine, a dark fantasy series by writer Ryan Burton and artist John Bivens.

I review Unfabulous Five by Jerry Frissen and Bill, which is a big fun French comic about Mexican wrestlers who fight all kinds of odd gangs in East Los Angeles. Full of wild ideas Unfabulous Five is an entertaining read, that still manages to have some quieter moments that add to it’s emotional core.
