This Week in Comics: Nothing interesting or controversial happened this week at all. Seriously.

So. That happened. You don’t know what that is? Well, I’m not going to tell you. And if you really want to know, it’s out there. If you click on that link, you will know. And then we’ll both know. You know?

But anyway, we finally got an issue of Justice League that I can recommend with sincerity, and that’s cause for celebration. And despite the utter lack of controversy and intrigue surrounding Batman #24, it was a really, really good book, too. I’ve been behind for a few months on other books, so tell me: what else was good this week in comics?

Bane: Conquest #2

Art by Graham Nolan and Gregory Wright

Bane: Conquest #2 was much more enjoyable than the premiere issue.

Batman #24

Art by David Finch, Danny Miki, and Jordie Bellaire

This single issue was more poignant than any of King’s long drawn-out overthought epics.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9

Art by Andy Kubert, Frank Miller, and Brad Anderson

In the end, though, the resolution is too neat, too quick, and too anticlimactic.

Harley Quinn #21

Art by Frank Cho

Once again this book surprises me with a twist I could have never predicted.

Injustice 2 #3

Art by Bruno Redondo and Alejandro Sanchez

Tom Taylor gathers all of his strengths to make this issue absolutely thrum with tension.

Justice League #22

Art by Paul Pelletier, Andrew Hennessy, and Hi-Fi

I’m still waiting for a new direction for Justice League, but it was nevertheless so, so good to have such a nice interlude this week.

Nightwing #22

Art by Casey Jones and Hi-Fi

This is just as much Blockbuster’s story as it is Nightwing’s, so it’s nice to see the deliberate pace and almost cinematic nature of the script.
