Demon Knights #16 (DC) - Robert Vendetti, the writer behind the well-received revival of X-O Manowar takes over what is more or less DC's medieval version of the Justice League. Immortal savages, demons, swords and sorcery. It's always a good mix. Give the new guy a shot!

I know you have it in you.
Saga #9 (Image) I shouldn't have to explain this. You should already be reading Saga.
Dardevil #22 (Marvel) See Saga, with the added note/caveat that this guest stars the notorious "Superior Spider-Man,
