Many thought Batman and Robin #15 would get the prize this week (as most other comic book sites seem to be giving it to), but I just can’t get enough of Cullen Bunn’s epic tale in The Sixth Gun #5. Mystery, suspense, gun-slinging, the undead – these are just a sample of what’s in this fantastic series. And it’s continually building its own mythology by giving us a taste of where this series could go next once this story arc ends.

This is not to say that Batman and Robin #15 was left out in the cold. Another solid issue continuing Dr. Hurt’s pursuit of the Bat demon Barbatos. Irving’s art is breathtaking and the last page reveal is no shocker given what DC is promoting next month, but is still a solid cliffhanger to whet our appetites for what Peter Tomasi has in store next for the series.

Brightest Day #12 briefly detours out of the Blackest Night part 2 domain and back into Martian Manhunter’s storyline. A lot of comparisons to the Garden of Eden tale, which makes it all the more compelling when Manhunter continually refutes his newly discovered Martian companion’s, D’Kay, attempts at starting a relationship and re-creating Mars. We all knew what was coming next out of this, but it still doesn’t take away from one of the better sub-plots coming out of this year-long event.
