It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Learn A Very Valuable Lesson In ‘The Black Hood: Season 2′ #1

The Black Hood: Season 2 #1

The Black Hood was unquestionably the breakout star of Archie's grim and gritty Dark Circle imprint. Sure, the initial wave of interest may have come from the fact that it was the first comic published by Archie to ever drop the F-bomb on the page, but what kept readers coming back was the brutal crime story of Greg Hettinger, a cop turned vigilante turned criminal who just kept making things worse for himself.

Now, Greg is back, having fled from Philadelphia and the pretty extensive crimes of his past, as Duane Swierczynski, Greg Scott, Kelly Fitzpatrick and Rachel Deering bring you The Black Hood: Season 2. And while the setting may have changed to California, the action is every bit as ruthless as it has been.

Hedging Your Bets: ComicsAlliance’s Longform Critical Examination Of Archie’s ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’

Hedging Your Bets #00: Prologue

With almost 300 issues in the core series, Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog stands as the longest-running current American monthly comic book that hasn't been rebooted, restarted, or renumbered. Because of that, if stands as a surprisingly significant title in the annals of mainstream comics --- and it's also one that I know almost nothing about.

But never let it be said that I let a gap in my comics knowledge go unaddressed, no matter how wary I am of the subject matter. Thus: Hedging Your Bets, where I attempt to get up the speed on Sonic the Hedgehog, attempting to spite the odds and make it all the way to the finish line.

This week, we kick things off with a prologue that asks a simple question: What the heck is this thing's deal?
