Female Furies #1> All their lives the Female Furies have been raised to be the meanest, most cunning and most ruthless fighting force on all of Apokolips. So why are Granny Goodness’ girls left behind every time the men go to war? With the might of New Genesis hanging over the planet, and the Forever People making mincemeat out of Darkseid’s army, Granny thinks it’s about time that changed.
And so, Big Barda, Aurelie, Mad Harriet, Lashina, Bernadeth and Stompa set out to beat the boys at their own game. Little do they know the game is rigged-and one accidental murder could spell disaster for them all!
FEMALE FURIES is an exciting new miniseries starring some of Jack Kirby’s coolest Fourth World characters by the writer of SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL and the artist of PLASTIC MAN! Cecil Castellucci (S) Adriana Melo (CA) Mitch Gerads
Smurfs Take> I have always wanted to see more done Granny Goodness and her little army. They have always felt like filler that no one has taken an time to develop further. I’m excited to see this and should be a fun run.
Daredevil #1> CLASSIFIED (S) Chip Zdarsky (A) Marco Checchetto, Chip Zdarsky (CA) Julian Totino Tedesco
Smurfs Take> Well, Daredevil is dead. It’s been a tradition for the last creative team to leave the next one in the worst place possible. I don’t think it gets any worst than that how ever I am excited to see were it goes from here.
Old Man Quil #1> THE FAR-FLUNG SAGA OF THE ONCE AND FUTURE STAR-LORD BEGINS!
Meet Peter Quill. He used to be Star-Lord – you know, the legendary outlaw – but it’s been quite some time since he’s gone by that name. Taking over for his father as the Emperor of Spartax, Quill put the life of spacefaring adventure behind him for one of leadership and responsibility. Quill grew up. But things didn’t go as planned. Decades have passed, and Peter is haunted by tragedy. Down and out, Quill’s existence means nothing…until the former GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY drag Peter out of his funk for one last mission! The heist of a lifetime – and Quill’s harrowing quest for redemption – begins here! (S) Sacks, Ethan (A) Robert Gill (CA) John Tyler Christopher
Smurfs Take> I have mixed feelings on this. The one hand always excited about looking into what may be and what happens in the Marvel U. The other is the trend that Marvel is falling into with this. It was one thing when it was Wolverine and it took years to get the rest of that story just to have him end up in our time. Hawkeye, Cosmic Ghost Rider, now Star Lord. Al I am saying is the time line is mess up enough and I don’t want to see this become a habit and is that a Punisher shirt he has on under his coat.
Batman #64> “THE PRICE” part one! The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe take on the one cold case that will tear them apart!
As chief architect of the Sanctuary program that cost so much for so many, especially Wally West, Batman will be held accountable…by the Flash!
A cold case from the Justice League’s past has mysteriously re-opened, and Batman and the Flash-the only two heroes who stand a chance of cracking the case-are at each other’s throats! Our heroes must combat a demon from the past while burying their own inner demons in the process…and neither the World’s Greatest Detective nor the Fastest Man Alive will ever be the same again! But who is really pulling the strings here? And how does Gotham Girl fit into all this? Friendships will be tested and blood will be spilled in this titanic crossover event… (S) Joshua Williamson (A) Guillem March (CA) Chris Burnham
Smurfs Take> The last time these two crossed over we got hints to the Dooms Day Clock story that is going on and so much more. So what are we going to get this time? I loved this team up last time more then I expected and this looks to be an bigger story. Truth is this has been a question from many Flash fans nd about time we get some answers.
Avengers #14> THE WAR OF THE VAMPIRES BEGINS!
TRANSYLVANIA IS BURNING! As vampire civil war throws the world into chaos, the mysterious Shadow Colonel and his squad of undead revolutionaries have one burning question on their murderous minds: Where is Dracula? And if the Avengers find him first, will the lord of the damned be friend or foe? (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) David Marquez
Smurfs Take> Waaaa? Vampires now? I wish we had got this a little closer to the Halloween season but I will take it. Jason has been on a solid roll with this title and continues with a hit every month.
