Black Widow #1> …AND HELL FOLLOWED WITH HER.
Natasha Romanoff was trained to kill. For years now she’s tried to overcome that programming, to side with the angels…to be a hero. And where’d that get her? Killed. By one of the few true friends she allowed herself to have. Now she’s back from the dead, angry as hell and finding those better angels harder and harder to hear. Jen and Sylvia Soska – the Twisted Twins of horror – join rising artist Flaviano to weave a web of vice, violence and vengeance that will net Natasha the biggest bad men she’s ever faced…or put her back in the ground for good.

Smurfs Take> It’s about time! We get a She Hulk book with no Hulk in it before we get a Black Widow? A character that Marvel has abused lets face it not sure to build her up or tuck her away in a dark corner. The potential for so many good stories if someone would just take the time and I think someone finally has.
Middlewest #3> Abel and Fox learn that there may be someone who can help the boy’s worsening condition. But the road to reach her is long and unpredictable—and not everyone they run into along the way is anxious to let them pass. (S) Skottie Young (A) Jorge Corona
Smurfs Take> What a wonderfully odd little book. When you want something different and a departure from the “Super Hero” book this is exactly what I had in mind. It’s perfect.
Batman Who Laughs #2> After the shocking ending of issue #1, a ticking clock sets Batman on a trail throughout the different realities of the Multiverse. He starts to see all the iterations of his life, and what could have been…but more importantly, Bruce Wayne begins to deduce that his current life is somehow wrong, and that all the mistakes he’s made are somehow connected. Meanwhile, the Batman Who Laughs raises the curtain on his second act, pulling out the big guns to break into Arkham Asylum… enter one of the most punishing Batmen of the Dark Multiverse: the Grim Knight!

Smurfs Take> Oh good lord. I don’t know what I was expecting in the first issue but I can tell you I wasn’t expecting that. I had my doubts when it came to this whole other Batmen idea but I have to say they really have something with this one. I should have known better with Snyder writing.
Marvel Comics Presents #1> THE CLASSIC MARVEL SERIES RETURNS FOR MARVEL’S 80th ANNIVERSARY! Three titanic tales celebrating the first decade of Marvel stories! First – an all-new tale of the man they call the Wolverine begins in the 1940s! Then comes Captain America, the first Avenger of World War II still fighting for freedom today! And finally, the untold tale of Namor and the atom bomb! (S) Charles Soule, Ann Nocenti, Greg Pak (A) Paulo Siqueira, Tomm Coker, More (CA) Arthur Adams, Federico Blee
Smurfs Take> Back in the day I use to love this book, then towards the end it just became another Wolverine title. This is the chance to tell a decent story to help expand the characters without it affecting the main story going on. If Marvel keeps it simple and follows the formula they have set with this first issue this will be an amazing title.
The Warning #3> “RAZORBACK” The alien counteroffensive Operation: All-Weather begins. (S) Edward Laroche (A) Edward Laroche
