Maintenance #6 (Oni Press)
By Jim Massey & Robbi Rodriguez

Doug and Manny, the two supervillain base janitors, return this month in “Chills.” With the heating system in the base on the fritz, everyone is freezing their butts off. Despite this, Dr. Kung decides to summon all the mad scientists on the base for an anniversary party celebrating the formation of the Joint Committee to Assess Employee Morale. Oh — and there’s a sort of coffee-monster attacking everyone as well. What makes this comic work is the way Massey so seamlessly blends the simple goofiness of the supervillain concept with the simple goofiness of an office comedy, and this issue is no exception. Rodriguez‘s artwork is also a major selling point — the comedy wouldn’t work as well if not for the strong, funny character designs and storytelling. This book is always highly recommended.
