The comic world is a whirlwind to work through with its weekly releases. I’m going to take that burden away from you the best I can and give you some focus on what’s important to check out each week.

Here’s what’s on tap for the week of June 23rd:


Batman #32

I’ll admit it. I thought I could use a break from the Batman abundance after the Joker story. Re-telling the origin story for a New 52 world seemed like the best time to do it, having read so many variations of the origin story. I am glad I did not jump off of that ship.

8 issues into the Zero year epic, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo have written/painted Gotham into a corner with the Riddler at the helm. This is the most intimidating you’ve seen out of Riddler and it makes you question how Batman will respond in this penultimate issue to the sprawling storyline.


Justice League #31

Lex Luthor joining the elite DC squad was already enough to win me over. Now we see other Forever Evil side effects happening with a new bearer of the Power Ring. This is what I was hoping for in terms of a shake-up in the New 52 and Geoff Johns sure enough can deliver great new relationships to a team dynamic.


Uncanny Avengers #21

I have grown into a huge Rick Remender fan as of late. I already was a fan when he first came to Uncanny X-Force and then took on Black Science, but it’s been solidified after I finished up the last omnibus of Fear Agent. He truly is a writer that is all about the long-form and the ultimate payoffs – something that can get easily lost in mainstream superhero storytelling.

This issue marks the end of his Avenge the Earth arc, but potentially is wrapping up everything he started back with Uncanny X-Force #1. Of course we know that the world will return to its original form, but it doesn’t take away from the bombastic storytelling and key relationships he’s built over the years. The fact that Remender is getting the next event with Avengers/X-Men Axis shows how far he’s come at Marvel over the years.
