Heroes in Crisis #6> Get a deeper look into the inner workings of Sanctuary. When heroes visited the facility, they relived their trauma through virtual reality, contending with the events that brought them there in the hope of reaching a meaningful resolution. That is, until the trauma took over and escalated these personal events into a full-blown crisis! Find out what pushed one of the superheroes over the edge and how it broke the machine. This special issue reunites the Eisner Award-winning MISTER MIRACLE team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads! (S) Tom King (A/CA) Mitch Gerads
Smurfs Take> If this book is not put up for an Eisner I will be very disappointed. It has all of the elements to becoming one of the classic stories you always hear collectors refer to and a must read. This is what comics are all about, great art and story that is a real page turner.
Daredevil #2> CLASSIFIED! (S) Chip Zdarsky (A) Marco Checchetto (CA) Julian Totino Tedesco
Smurfs Take> Wow. That’s all I can say about the first issue. It has to be one of the best starts to a series I have seen let alone for a Daredevil series.
Avengers No Road Home #3> Rocket Raccoon comes face-to-face with his past – and it isn’t pretty! Meanwhile, the Avengers search the universe for the Shards of Night – and find trouble in the shape of the Children of Nyx! (S) Al Ewing, Jim Zub, Mark Waid (A) Paco Medina (CA) Yasmine Putri
Smurfs Take> Any more we can learn about Rockets past I am all for….to a point. We have seen little peeks into it from Guardians but one of my favorites is his limited series back in the 80’s. A planet of animal living together Killer robot clowns. It was perfect. Please don’t wreck that but I have faith in this team who have been on point so far.
Marvel Comics Presents #2> Three fantastic fables in one mighty magazine! First, a tale of Logan in the fabulous fifties! Then, a new swinging story of the jungle’s cursed crusader, Gorilla-Man! Finally, Reed Richards and Victor Von Doom enter the space race as Sputnik takes orbit!

Smurfs Take> Another perfect example of stories and art for a first issue. If they keep this format I can see big things for this title and it becoming a fan favorite without a doubt. Enough to tell a compelling story and keep them coming back for more.
Amazing Spider-Man #16> THE ROAD TO “HUNTED” STARTS HERE!
The biggest AMAZING SPIDER-MAN story of the year starts next month, so don’t miss this prologue! The Kraven thread gets woven into Spider-Man’s life in a terrifying way that puts Spidey on the road to ruin! (S) Nick Spencer (A) Ryan Ottley (CA) Cully Hamner
Smurfs Take> One of the major story lines in the Spider world is Kravens Last Hunt. Not only for it’s ending but the intensity of the story as a whole. The concept at the time was horrifying and compelling all at once to see the lengths he would go to become the Spider. I have made it very well known about my less than happy thoughts towards Mr. Spencer and while I may fear the worst as he digs up this story line; is there more to tell. All I do know is it’s rather hard to come back after a shotgun to the head.
