The Victories #11
Michael Avon Oeming’s book just gets weirder and more over the top. It’s a fairly interesting take on what would happen if Illuminati-style conspiracies ran up against superheroes, but even though this is a new arc, you might want to start from the beginning.
Suicide Risk #13
Boy, this series got grandiose, fast. Not that that’s a bad thing; watching Leo Winters and Requiem square off, and learning why people have superpowers in this book, is a lot of fun. This is some enjoyable superheroics, and worth catching up if you haven’t been reading.
Archer and Armstrong #20
This new arc, picking up after a crossover, has the titular duo looking for Archer’s parents. And at first this book seems up to its usual wacky hijinks: Mocking Scientology, bringing Elvis back from the dead, and so on. But it starts to get darker and more disturbing as it goes on. It’s still absurdly funny, but also a bit grittier around the edges than you might expect. Highly recommended, especially as this new arc is a good jumping-on point.
Detective Comics #31
Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul are taking the title of this book quite literally, and that’s a great thing. But while the focus is on Bruce’s investigative skills, that doesn’t mean the book skimps on the action, and there’s a brutal fight with Sumo that makes it clear Batman may be a genius investigator, but he’s also your worst nightmare. Highly recommended.
