If the latest crop of The Op Puzzles is any sign of what to expect this summer, June gloom is hardly in the forecast. A prism of characters you’ve seen on the small screen can now be found in jumbled pieces on your tabletop, ready to transport you to various places you’ve probably been missing: An amusement park along the beach. A funny little town in Colorado. Amid a parade of love. Even the Great Outdoors is nationally observed in June. And although the month of May bloomed a few puzzles that show a little snow, highlight a Dark Knight, and sneak a holiday peek, they’re a great way to buckle up and either escape—or return to—reality. Find out where you’re going and with whom among the $14.99 puzzles we’re Fixated on below!
