In the first season of Better Call Saul, we saw Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill before he assumed his alter ego as sleazy superlawyer Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad, who antiheroically pursues half-truths, shady justice, and the tax-dodging American way. In advance of Monday’s second-season premiere, AMC has released a bizarre and delightful online comic wherein Saul, clad in a Superman-esque cape, flies around Albuquerque to combat some rowdy youths. It’s written by Jenn Carroll and Gordon Smith, and features artwork by Steve Ellis. This is actually the second Better Call Saul comic, after last year’s more realistic Better Call Saul: Client Development. The new caped-crusader series will be told in six parts and released bi-weekly. You can read the whole first installment on AMC’s website right now. Up, up, and away (to a plea bargain)!
