#NewComicsDay and it’s an Image kind of week for me to warm things up on this chilly February. Thankfully Smurf is here with his top five to give you a few other ideas, don’t forget Guardians 2, the latest East of West, and Avengers. It’s a full week and all of this sponsored by All C’s Collectibles and their upcoming Fan Expo March 23.
Middlewest #4> Abel and the fox have wandered into a small-town carnival where they should be able to find the healer they seek. While they search, Fox teaches Abel that survival sometimes means bending the rules a bit. (S) Skottie Young (A) Jorge Corona
Smurfs Take> I am really liking this book. Quirky, fun, and one of the most enjoyable books Image is producing right now. It’s like a dream come to life.
Age of X-Man Amazing Nightcrawler #1> ENTER THE AGE OF X-MAN!
From the Munich circus to Hollywood Boulevard, Nightcrawler is starring in his own solo series! Kurt Wagner is the biggest celebrity slash super hero since Dwayne Johnson! Juggling Kurt’s responsibilities as one of the X-Men and a slate of summer blockbusters would be tough without the best support staff in the business: Stunt coordinator Magma! Personal trainer Kylun! And of course, his leading lady Meggan! But there’s something rotten in Tinseltown… (S) Sean McGuire (A) Juan Frigeri (CA) Shane Davis, Michelle Delecki, Federico Blee
Smurfs Take> I have always loved Nightcrawler. When they did Age of Apocalypse he had the perfect balance of edge and the fuzzy elf we all knew and loved. I hope that is going to be the case once again.
Seven to Eternity> #13> END OF STORY ARC The repercussions. (S) Rick Remender (A/CA) Jerome Opena
Smurfs Take> The world building has been amazing the character development out of this world. I can honestly say I have no idea where it is going to go next but I am in for the ride.
Hulkverines #1> THE CLASH YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
At last! It’s Weapon H versus his predecessors-Wolverine and the Hulk! Once, the Weapon X program sought to recreate the world’s two greatest hunters. They ended up with Weapon H, a man of Adamantium claws and gamma-juiced blood. Now, Wolverine and the Hulk are back in action – and coming after the dangerous creation made in their name! (S) Greg Pak (A) Ario Anindito (CA) Greg Land, D’Armata, Frank
Smurfs Take> This should be a fun little smashfest. Short, sweet, and by the end no more Weapon H.
Batman #65> “THE PRICE” part three! 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
