Smurfs Take> I know right here is where I would have my pick for the week but as I looked over the titles I realized something. I know it may seem like an Image week but there is not a single title listed here that I would skip over, that I am not actively reading and eagerly awaiting the next issue. For this week I pick them all because to be honest they all are that good.
