Two new gaming comics this week, one non-gaming comic for you to consider. The non-gaming comic is probably not a classic. It is not created by an all-star cast. No, it merely has an amazing title: Executive Assistant Iris.

"Across the Border: Part 3." Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem have been framed for smuggling cocaine. These tough soldiers might have faced just about every danger in the world-but will it prepare them for the hell that waits in the Mexican Jail, where they must fight for their lives against corrupt guards as well as the sadistic criminals locked in with them? Meanwhile, Jaime tightens his bloodthirsty grip on the local underworld.

Sonic Universe #14
Written by Ian Flynn and drawn by Tracy Yardley.

Summary Via Archie Comics:
"Journey into the East Part Two: High Price for Rich Nights": Having endured a fierce battle with the Spider Ninjas last issue, Sonic and his friends must now face Bat Ninjas! While ambushes threaten around every corner, the intrepid heroes proceed on their journey to the temple under the firm resolves of Sally and Monkey Khan. Are these deadly skirmishes any match for the political chess games and machinations of war that lurk beneath the surface? The big picture gets even bigger in this issue that ties into this month's SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #211.

Executive Assistant Iris #4
Written and drawn by David Wohl and Eduardo Francisco.

Summary Via
Secretary. Bodyguard. Assassin. The Executive Assistant is all of the above rolled into one. Enter EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT: IRIS! The exciting fourth issue of Aspen's newest action adventure series, EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT: IRIS takes a look at Iris's dark past and what led her to become the deadly assassin she is today! Iris learns old wounds never truly heal as she revisits her youth and the brutal lifestyle she once inhabited in China. With revenge in her heart and tragic memories still burning inside her, Iris sets out on a mission to bring justice to the man responsible for her broken path—and now cloudy future. And in the process, she could potentially save the lives of many other young girls headed down the same road she took.
Why I Included This Non-Gaming Comic: I have no plans to buy this comic, but I think it has the best title since the comic called Battle Pope. Can we assume this is someone's fetish?
