Batman: The Knight #3
Batman: The Knight #3 is a must-read for sure. The story in its entirety is shaping up to be a true classic in the making and could lead to Zdarsky bringing more Batman storylines of this caliber to the forefront.

Fantastic Four: Reckoning War – Trial of the Watcher #1
Fantastic Four: Reckoning War – Trial of the Watcher is a great What If… story, and if you like alternate takes on tales you’ll love this. It also has the heart and grit of the classic comics with a modern sensibility thanks to the art and color. The story itself even adds weight to Uatu, making the events matter in the main universe, too.
