Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay Women dominate the top spots this week as we some great stories hit the shelves. The continuation of one that has Smurf all worked up and best of all no force on earth can stop X-Men Black this week. Don’t forget the Punisher with a special team up this week, Wolverine is working on his return, and Batman Beyond hits 25.

old lady harley #1Old Lady Harley #1> After liberating New York City from her now-feral Gang of Harleys, poor Harley wants nothing more than to slip back into retirement in her coastal (and heavily guarded) paradise. But the Laughing Boys Gang has another idea-they’ll follow her to the ends of the Earth, to drag her back to their leader! It can’t actually be…him! Right?! He couldn’t possibly still be alive, could he? After all…Harley killed him herself with her bare hands! Should she turn to President Power Girl for help? Or flee to the 51st state, Atlantis? Step into an insane vision of a future DC Universe we all better hope we don’t live to see! (S) Tieri, Frank (A) Inaki Miranda (CA) Mauricet

Smurfs Take> Is it weird that I am intrigued by this title? The quick peeks into the future are always fun, see who is still around, Earth shaking revelations into the fate of some of the heroes  but this might resemble Mr. Toads wild ride.  Of course the big question on everyone’s mind; what happened with the Joker? This should be a fun read for sure!

spidergwen #1Spider-Gwen Ghost-Spider #1> A SPIDER-GEDDON TIE IN!
What? You thought we were done with Gwen Stacy after the first two landmark volumes of her series?! GET OUTTA HERE. It’s a whole new spin on Gwen and her world of Earth-65, brought to you by none other than SEANAN MCGUIRE & ROSI KÄMPE! We pick up with Gwen right where we left her – fighting crime through her home reality, unaware that it sits on the precipice of interdimensional calamity! Someone’s gonna be late to band practice… (S) Seanan McGuire (A) Rosi Kampe (CA) Bengal




spidergeddon #2Spider-Geddon #2> The Inheritors have made landfall and have drawn first blood. Now the Spiders have to gather their army and start their missions. But can it possibly be enough for an incredibly powerful family that eat Spider-People?  (S) Christos Gage, Dan Slott (A/CA) Jorge Molina

Smurfs Take> I know I try to avoid this. Having two similar titles or characters right next to one another or sharing the top5 but it couldn’t be helped. The first issue solid, I mean it was really good. So much so I am going to read the first one again just before I read this one. I know Marvel always starts strong with their stories and fail to deliver when it comes to an ending but I am really optimistic that wont be the case for this story.

what if thor #1What If? Thor #1> When young THOR’S father falls to the King of Giants, his life is forever changed. He’s ripped from Asgard to be raised in a world of persistent winter, learning the brutal way of life in Jotenheim. But what happens when the runt of the giants, LOKI, is under the shadow of his new step-brother? (S) Sacks, Ethan (A) Michele Bandini (CA) Marco Checchetto

Smurfs Take> I have yet to be disappointed with run yet. The first two were great and this looks like a home run to me. I love a good story, give me something fun, fresh, challenge my perspective, and this has accomplished just that. How or whoever is behind all of this keepem coming.


juggernaut #1X-Men Black Juggernaut #1> Nothing can stop the Juggernaut…
until now. What has finally stopped Cain Marko in his tracks? You’ll have to see to believe, but we can promise you it’s gonna involve nothing but punching for the Juggernaut! PLUS: Part 4 of X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE! (S) Robbie Thompson, Lonnie Nadler, Zac Thompson (A) Shawn Crystal (CA) Salvador Larroca

Smurfs Take> Oh how I love me a good Juggernaut story. Still to date one of the best is X-Men #183 but lets face it, who doesn’t love a good bar room brawl. If I am honest, I did enjoy the blink of a moment when he was an X-Men. I know how difficult it is to write for a character that is just pure destruction, hell they are still trying to get Colossus right. So let me ask you, what would you do if you were the Juggernaut?
