Super Secret Crisis War #3

Locked in a space station in another dimension, Samurai Jack, Ben Tennyson, Dexter, Bubbles, Blossom, Buttecup, Ed, Edd, and Eddy get separated into small groups while battling the robots of Aku and Vilgax many of whom have been created to look like our heroes. This allows for some intriguing team-ups including the chance to see Samurai Jack and Bubbles fight side-by-side for an entire issue (a pairing I'd gladly pay to see more of).

Continuing the trend of the mini-series as it hits the halfway mark, Super Secret Crisis War #3 includes more betrayals and mechanations among the group as each villain decides he is obviously the greatest member of the League of Extraordinary Villains.

Despite the swath the heroes manage to carve out through the ship, leaving butchered robots in their wake, the latest issue also teases us with what Aku really has in mind for their enemies as the comic heads its final three issues (which will hopefully include more Mojo Jojo!). Worth a look.
