The Victories #10
You know, for the ending of a major arc, this doesn’t have a lot of closure. Hopefully Michael Avon Oeming has a bit more in mind; while crossing over superheroes and bizarre ancient conspiracies is a lot of fun, it’s also pretty dense and only getting more complicated.
Suicide Risk #11
Mike Carey and Elena Casagrande kick off a new arc with their book of superheroes, and Leo, our hero, has been Superior Spider-Manned and has an entity from another world living in his skull and controlling his body. Needless to say, that’s not going to go well for anybody… including Leo. If you’ve been waiting to get on board with this book, now would be a good time; this arc has a lot of promise.
Archer And Armstrong #18
Fred Van Lente and Pere Perez kick off what promises to be an entertainingly ridiculous crossover. Archer is now technically a terrorist leader, and Project Rising Spirit would like him removed. One problem, of course: Archer is basically a ninja. Hence, the entire book is essentially a long, ridiculous parody of kung-fu movies and heroic bloodshot, right down to the doves. If you’re looking to start picking up these books, this crossover is a great way to do it.
Detective Comics #29
John Layman and Aaron Lopresti wrap up a great run on Detective by finishing off the Gothtopia storyline in a good, old-fashioned Batman manner. It’s a fun little way to end a Batman story, and hopefully whoever follows Layman can keep up the energy he’s had on this book.
