No battle of the titans in the mainstream this week, only a minor tussle between less high-call titles, but there’s also one good art title and one spectacularly good one, making the week more interesting than it might have been.

This started out as an easy week — from my perspective at least. Two big mainstream titles vying to knock Age of Ultron off its throne and one art title. Then up crops another art title.
