#NewComicsDay is here! That’s a good thing because I don’t have a thing to read on this cold day. Here are the top five books Smurf is looking at this week sponsored by All C’s Collectables who is giving you a 10% discount if you mention this at check out.
Heroes in Crisis #5> The secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn’t supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the ‘Net. Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn’t lying, that is). Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash continue to investigate the mysterious murderer. The answer can be found in Sanctuary…but is it safe to go digging in the crime scene? (S) Tom King (A) Clay Mann (CA) Trevor Hairsine
Smurf> This title continues to surprise me and I haven’t been so invested into a story like this since Identity Crisis. I have no idea what to expect, or where it’s going and what will be on the next page and I love every moment of it.
Doctor Strange #10> DOCTOR STRANGE HITS HIS MILESTONE 400TH ISSUE!
Creative team Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz are joined by some of the best DOCTOR STRANGE artists of all time to tell a monumentally strange tale! Someone has been working in the background since the first issue, chipping away at Doctor Strange and other magicians, undercutting and depleting their magic, and the other shoe finally drops. Does Strange stand a chance against someone who can take his magic away with the snap of their fingers? (S) Mark Waid (A) Chris Bachalo, More (A/CA) Jesus Saiz
Smurfs Take> I have been on board with this title since before the relaunch. The concept of how the magic world works and the cost is genius. The road Strange has been on has been far from disappointing and to find out that there has been a man behind the curtain the whole time is fantastic. Love Waid!
Age of X-Man Alpha #1> The age of X-Man dawns…
and the X-Men cannot stop it. (S) Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler (A) Ramon Rosanas (CA) Phil Noto
Smurfs Take> I’m not really sure what to expect from this story. It looks like Age of Apocalypse but it’s not. It looks like it might bring the X-Men out of their story slump and give us all something we have been begging for.
Flash #63> It’s two against one when Gemini tag-teams the Flash! The threat is doubled for the Scarlet Speedster when Gemini gets their hands on the Strength Force. But where’s that leave Powerhouse? She and the Flash must ride or die together in order to get her super-strength back, but they’ll have to survive a trip through the Strength Force first. Follow along in the Flash’s footsteps on the next leg of his Force Quest! (S) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Rafael Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona
Smurfs Take> Flash for me has been on a good roll and has been for some time. This little quest of his has consistently solid story telling and some really good developments that have been a fun ride. It’s been a quality book.
Punisher #7> LET THE PUNISHER FIT THE CRIME!
Can Zemo’s bid to turn Bagalia into a legitimate nation withstand the Punisher? What chance does the Rule of Law have in a land full of outlaws? Frank Castle is notoriously hard to kill, but an entire nation of super criminals might just do it.
Parental Advisory (S) Matthew Rosenberg (A) Szymon Kudranski (CA) Greg Smallwood
Smurfs Take> The Punisher on the run and leaving a disaster in his wake. The perfect blend of Punisher we know and so much more. I don’t think this title has ever been this good.
