These were my favourite new comics:
2. Action Comics #893-894 (DC) Paul Cornell's Lex Luthor story continues to defy expectations with a crazy "anything goes" approach to storytelling. From a ridiculously over-the-top issue featuring Gorilla Grodd with a giant spoon to a quietly metaphysical one consisting almost entirely of a conversation between Lex and Death, every new issue is a joy to read.
3. Batman and Robin #15 (DC) The delays have been excruciating, but the final issue in Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving's story delivered all the thrills I expected from it. This three-issue arc might be my pick for best interior art of the year.
4. Knight and Squire #1 (DC) More Paul Cornell craziness. This new series is off to a good start, and I'm excited to read the rest of it.
5. Sweet Tooth #14 (Vertigo) Jeff Lemire's book is the very definition of consistent quality. It never falters or misses a step. Just great storytelling, characters and art each month. If you're not reading this, what the hell is wrong with you?
And my least favourite comic of the month:
Avengers Academy #5 (Marvel) Oh, God, this sucked. See here for some evidence.
