22 or so chapters into Three Musketeers.  I find it amusing that D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers were supposed to be on a secret mission to London,

D'Artagnan is now on his way back to France, where he caught a glimpse of

the mysterious lady whom the guy he marked for revenge in the first chapter was conspiring with.  D'Artagnan learns, in England, that she is one of the top agents for Cardinal Richeliu, who has agents and spies everywhere.  Heck, even normal people could be considered his minions, since he is influencing the masses to look to him as the true leader rather than the idiot king on the throne.
 
  Cardinal Richeliu is a conniving and sinister mastermind, he is. 

Alongside Three Musketeers, I'm also reading Madame Mirage vol. 1- a comic by Paul Dini (who wrote some of my favorite episodes of He-Man when I was a kid.)  I'm digging it.  The art is vibrant and the pulpy storyline has some cool characters.  So far, it's good summer blockbuster stuff.
