daredevil-2016-13-muse

After Muse attacks the courthouse and takes a judge hostage, Blindspot follows the villain into the sewers where Muse adds the judge to his collection of a councilwoman and two police officers (all of whom he blames for “conspiring” to shut down public access to his works of art). With Daredevil far from the action the comic is presented through the young hero’s perspective who does his best left to his own devices. Blindspot does manage to save the hostages and stymie the villain… at least for awhile.

everafter-3-hansel

The third issue of Everafter continues the Fables spin-off’s opening arc with a twist. Remember the death of Connor Wolf which punctuated the end of the previous issue? Well, turns out the newbie spy isn’t dead. Having switched places by morphing into one of the heist crew, Connor is able to report back to The Shadow Players about the team of thieves stealing powerful Native American artifacts from museums all over the world. The trouble for Connor, however, is despite his ability to transform into any person or creature, he doesn’t gain that person’s knowledge or intelligence and, of course, is eventually found out.

hal-jordan-and-the-green-lantern-corps-7-warworld

The conclusion of the series’ opening arc “Sinestro’s Law” pits student against teacher one more time. While Hal Jordan sends Soranik on a mission to deal with the Fear Engine and release those captured and tortured to feed Sinestro‘s power, Hal takes a stand against Sinestro one more time. Hal Jordan’s metamorphosis into something… other began during the New 52. While the comic suggests Hal gives his life to stop Sinestro’s reign of fear, the series’ title and the constant foreshadowing of something more in Jordan’s future makes me believe this isn’t the last we’ve heard from him.

atomic-robo-vol-11-3-energy

Atomic Robo and his adventures in China during WWII continue. While hiding out with the Ghost Bandits, Robo and his friends have time to contemplate the enhanced super-soldiers they are up against. This allows the comic to take a step back and muse over the idea of the Zero Point and how their enemies are drawing power from the lowest energy state in the universe and using it for their own purposes.
