Hands down the funniest book in comics right now, and by far the longest title. Superior Foes is a book about 5 super villains who form a new sinister six gang. Wait, there is only 5 though right? Perfect, then everyone will always be expecting someone else! Our Hero .. wait Anti Hero... our villain leader is Boomerang and he is trying to make the jump from henchman to crime boss. Writer Nick Spencer has been doing a great job creating the best-worst villain team ever. Boomerang and his team have stolen a painting of an unmasked Dr. Doom that the criminal underworld would kill for.
This series is packed with more backstabbing and betrayal than an episode of Game of Thrones. This issue our villains are on the run, back to the safe house (a house Boomerang's girlfriend is house- sitting), to hide out after the big job. We also get to see everyone's favorite probation officer; butter-fly-man, Mach VII. It is really difficult for comics to have good comedic timing, because the timing is controlled by the reader. However, this book kills it every time.
The art matches the tone of the book very well, by being colorful and fun, but not feeling overly cartoon-y or fake. I always thought books about villains were a bad idea, because they just turn into anti-heroes, but there is another way to do it... just make them totally incompetent and it's hilarious! The first volume of this book came out not to long ago and collects the first 6 issues, and I promise you will laugh your ass off. Unless you don't have a soul ... you do have a soul don't you?
