Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con International: San Diego #1

Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti's "Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con International: San Diego" #1 is a fun and self-deprecating romp as one of comics' craziest characters makes her way to comics' most high-profile event.

Edison Rex #12

Harley Quinn

Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti's script for "Harley Quinn" #0 is slight, but deliberately so; they're letting the art do the heavy lifting, and more importantly it succeeds in this deliberately silly comic.

Superman #23.2

Writer Tony Bedard makes Brianiac out to be more like a spiteful kid rather than the brilliant mind his name suggests in "Superman" #23.2, but artist Pascal Alixe's textured and detailed interpretation at least makes it worth looking at.

Superman #23.1
