#NewComicsDay Smurf’s High Five is here to help you on this gray day. The perfect way to spend an afternoon but don’t overlook Domino; that has been killing it.

Infinity Wars #4> Requiem is victorious. Infinity has been warped. Reality only has one hope. (S) Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Mike Deodato
Smurfs Take> Soooo not what I was expecting for this story. Sooooo good and worth every page turning moment.
What If? Punisher #1> WITH GREAT POWER…
When Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben is ruthlessly killed by a burglar Peter let escape, he vows to never let the same fate befall another innocent bystander. From then on, he stands as a figure of cold retribution. Criminals beware – the guilty caught in this spider’s web will be PUNISHED.
But will Parker stand triumphant…or shattered by this twist of fate?
The friendly neighborhood takes a different turn in this WHAT IF? adventure, positing a very different sense of responsibility for the man who will be known as THE PUNISHER, as his battles against villains like the GREEN GOBLIN take a new path! (S) Carl Potts (A) Juanan Ramirez (CA) Chris Stevens
Smurfs Take> This has always been the one soft spot for me when it comes to Marvel comics. I can always remember picking up the latest issue and excited for what little twist awaits me. If done right this could be one of Marvel’s best titles. A way to explore and tell some earth shaking stories that the fans want to read. This is the perfect way to start and everyone should be picking this up today.
Spider-Geddon #1> REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE!
Back in 2014, SPIDER-VERSE brought every Spider-Man ever together. This event spinning out of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 has Christos Gage and Dan Slott teaming up to destroy them all. The Inheritors have somehow gotten out of their radioactive prison planet and made their way to the Marvel Universe. It’s going to take a whole Spider-Army to keep them from TAKING IT ALL! Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones! With Jorge Molina on art, the END OF ALL SPIDERS never looked so good! (S) Christos Gage, Dan Slott (A/CA) Jorge Molina
Smurfs Take> If you have been listening to the podcast you know about our thoughts on the new Spiderverse movie. I’m sure this is to complement that, but this does have a great idea. Now that we have all of these Spidermen it’s time to clean house a little. That is as long as Spider-Ham survives.
Superman #4> As Superman fights to protect the world from Rogol Zaar and the Kryptonian convicts trapped inside the Phantom Zone, the greatest minds on Earth devise a risky plan to return the planet from the deadly prison. With the Earth continuing to crack and crumble and its greatest heroes fall, can the Man of Steel hold the line and give his adopted world a chance to escape? (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis
Smurfs Take> It says something when Superman beats out Flash for a top spot. I am really feeling Flash at the moment but then there is this title. Bendis and Prado are the perfect cohesion. I like when Superman gets pulled out of his normal Metropolis Daily Planet routine. The not so standard story and is allowed to be everything he can. I think over the years we have just made him too super and what this team has been able to do is let that super fully shine.
Avengers #9> WORLD WAR BELOW!
With the underwater world on the brink of war, the Avengers go aquatic to save the day, but air-breathers are no longer welcome in the undersea city of Atlantis. And Namor, the Sub-Mariner, lord of the seven seas, has a bold new plan that will change the balance of power on Earth forever. (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) David Marquez
Smurfs Take> Namors back?! And he’s younger? There is one of the most under used and miss understood characters in the Marvel U it’s Namor. First he’s part of the FF, then he’s and X-Men while he is playing with the Avengers. I have always wanted to see something great out of this character maybe this will be my chance. The Avengers book so far has been awesome and is running a very close race for #1 team book for me.
