Astro City #10, by Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson
Astro City is one of those great series that is a love letter to superheroes, but you can only really appreciate it having read comics for a few years. Here, the villain Junkman gets himself caught simply so that the public would be aware of all his great heists that were previously unknown. He's not a killer, he's not plotting world domination, he just wants people to realize his brilliance in besting the heroes of the world. So simple, yet so good.
