THE MIGHTY #6 i… guess? I have no idea about this series, so I can’t make a judgment.
BATMAN AND ROBIN #2 could be Batman already has a book, but Robin doesn’t. I’m torn on this one, to be honest. I’d probably let it slide as long as it didn’t set a precedent for abuse.
JONAH HEX #45 could be
THE SPIRIT #31 could be
THE WARLORD #4 could be
