Once, Bane broke all of the inmates out of Arkham. This week, he broke all of the inmates inside of Arkham. And it was AMAZING.

All-Star was delightfully bonkers, Batwoman got off to a solid start, and Super Sons was super close to perfect. What are you digging this week?

All-Star Batman #8

Art by Francesco Francavilla

Visually inventive, narratively bizarre, and an overall weird ride, this was so strange I couldn’t help but love it.

Batman #19

Art by David Finch, Danny Miki, and Jordie Bellaire

From every little subtly crafted nuance to all the bombastic over-the-top fanfare, this was hairs away from being a perfect issue.

Batwoman #1

Art by Steve Epting

…we get something that’s nicely layered and…gorgeously rendered by Steve Epting (with a nod, also, to Jeromy Cox on colors).

Detective Comics, Vol. 7: Anarky

Art by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccelato

I liked this a lot more when I read it in single-issue form back in early 2015.

Harley Quinn #16

Art by Frank Cho

…for being somewhat overstuffed and over-extended in the character department, this book manages to remain coherent, which is no small feat.

Injustice: Ground Zero #8

Art by Renato Guedes

Christopher Sebela balances the burgeoning turf war between Batman and Superman with Harley and Joker’s love-hate train and a whole of magic tricks from that other realm we haven’t seen since Year Three of the original series.

Justice League #17

Art by Yanick Paquette and Nathan Fairbairn

Justice League has been better these two weeks, but it still falls far, far short of what it ought to be.

Nightwing #17

Art by Ivan Reis, Oclair Albert, and Chris Sotomayor

It’s exciting and action-packed, well-illustrated with enough good character work to give it an emotional core.

Super Sons #2

Art by Dustin Nguyen

It’s fun without being lightweight, serious and focused without being oppressive and cynical.

Trinity #7

Art by Bill Sienkiewicz

This sort of story could easily end up a meaningless throwaway, but I hope it doesn’t.
