The stakes are high in August's Action Comics #692, as Superman faces a fateful decision to put a stop Doomsday (and we all know how that's worked out for him in the past). The second of the month's Action Comics issues from Dan Jurgens, Stephen Segovia, and Art Thibert brings the "Path to Doom" storyline to its conclusion that could spell the end of the world for someone.

Of course, stakes don't always have to be Doomsday-sized to feel like the end of the world, and a schism in Gotham Academy's Detective Club probably feels just as apocalyptic to Maps in August's Gotham Academy Annual #1, from writers Becky Cloonan and Brenden Fletcher, and artists Adam Archer, Michael Dialynas, and Christian Wildgoose
