We’re a few days removed from Comic Con, but that didn’t stop the comic book goodness from coming this past week. First DC put out probably their best animated effort yet in Batman Under the Red Hood (my review is here), then they opened the floodgates again with fantastic books. Flash, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman are just a few to name that had potential to take the prize.

In the end though, it was a tie between two superb series. In American Vampire #5,¬†Scott Snyder and Stephen King conclude the adventures of Pearl and her quest for vengeance against her wrong-doers as well as Skinner Sweet’s origin tale. It leads us into very interesting directions that could mean the rise of this new breed of vampire.

Then there is Paul Cornell’s fantastic character study of the Superman hater/wanna-be Lex Luthor in Action Comics #891. His battles with Mister Mind (I realize I called him Master Mind on the podcast – send your hate mail my way, please) are awesome and there are a couple of panels from Pete Woods that make you burst out laughing just at the absurdity of them.

Enjoy the show and let me know what you think of these series so far!
