Tom King and Barnaby Bagenda's "The Omega Men" #3 is the most straightforward and traditional issue of the series to date but, even with a simpler plot, it's still a lot of fun.
Steve Orlando, ACO and Hugo Petrus's "Midnighter" #3 is almost non-stop action, but it still effortlessly slips in some character developments and another fun cliffhanger to keep us coming back for more.
Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's first co-creation returns in the form of "Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl" #1, and their take on the idea of music as magic is wonderfully creepy when you least expect it.
Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell move the first storyline towards its big conclusion in "Jem and the Holograms" #5, as truths are revealed, relationships are put on rocky ground and pies are thrown.

"Batgirl Annual" #3 sends Batgirl on a mission through the Batman family supporting cast to stop a terrorist, and the longer length suits this story well.
The first "Gotham by Midnight Annual" has a strong opening thanks to Ray Fawkes and Christian Duce, but its conclusion feels a little aimless and reuses an increasingly familiar deus ex machina.

"Lobster Johnson: A Chain Forged in Life" lets Mike Mignola, John Arcudi, Troy Nixey and Kevin Nowlan bring us to a story of crime and kidnapping with a Christmas theme, just in time for an end of July release.
If you like the current "Harley Quinn" series with its slightly goofy tone, then you'll like "Harley Quinn and Power Girl" #2 as well, as the duo continue their outer space romp.
"Justice League 3001" #2 has both the strengths and weaknesses of this series on display, as Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Howard Porter continue to add in new characters while neglecting existing ones.
Tim Seeley and Tom King's story in "Grayson" #10 is fun and full of double-crossing spy action, but it's Mikel Janin's superstar art that ultimately steals the show.
"Uncanny X-Men" #35 continues the wind-down of the series, as Brian Michael Bendis and Valerio Schiti detail the post-Cyclops lives of the teen squad.
Zack Keller, Nick Keller and Joanna Estep's "Death Head" #1 has a genuinely spooky moment or two but, judged solely on this first issue, comes across a little too disjointed to hold one's interest for long.
"Martian Manhunter" #2 has a deliberately odd and disjointed voice to its story and, while that can't work for too long without some answers, Rob Williams, Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira keep readers jumping for now.
"Green Lantern: The Lost Army" #2 continues the wandering of the lost Green Lanterns, but Cullen Bunn and Jesus Saiz's story is less the fresh start it initially seemed and instead tightly bound to other "Green Lantern" comics.
"Lumberjanes" #16 serves up another helping of friendship, fantasy, danger and scouting from Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters and Brook Allen.

"Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders" #1 has a nice enough premise as another utopia is invaded by a surrounding hell-on-earth, but the two-issue length does Al Ewing, Alan Davis and Mark Farmer no favors.
