We dial back on the summer events a notch, but this week is not short on quality content:

5) Green Lantern #67
There’s no question that this series has lost its luster as of late between the above average offerings from the War of the Green Lanterns mini-event and the recent live-action movie. Surely there’s some bite left though what with this issue being the climax of its event, leading us into its respective DC re-launch in September.

4) Red Wing #1
Buzz came about a few months ago when the comic world came to learn that Jonathan Hickman was returning to creator-owned books. Here, he gives us a tale of fighter pilots that not only have to learn how to fly, but how to master time as well. If S.H.I.E.L.D and FF have shown us anything, this will be another fantastical romp through the mind of Hickman.

3) X-Men Schism #1
While Green Lantern has seem to tip on the lower side of the scale, X-Men has seem to gone on the upper. A successful movie and two great ongoing series led by Kieron Gillen and Rick Remender will do that to you. Now we have Jason Aaron given the task to shatter the X-Men by introducing a rift into the relationship between Cyclops and Wolverine. Great time to be an X-fan.

2) American Vampire : Survival of the Fittest #2
Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy are like peanut butter and jelly. They just fit well together. We now get to see what the two have in mind for Felicia Book and Cash McCogan as they go about their search for the vampire cure in the Romanian mountains.

1) Detective Comics #879
If you’re not already plugged into this arc after what James Jr. did at the end of the last issue, you should be tasered. As Snyder wraps up his run on this book, we finally get to see what we’ve all been waiting for – Commissioner Gordon finding out the worst about his son. And having Francisco Francavilla back to finish it off is making just that more awesome.
