#NewComicsDay Full week for the stands but Smurf is here with his High Five to help get you started. This Saturday is the All C’s Fan Expo with free admission. Stop by our table to visit Smurf who will have copies of the horror anthology by Wannabe Press his story appeared in. Cover by Aaron Alexovich art by Zach Skellington accompanied by some other amazing stories.
MiddleWest #5> Care and compassion are not concepts that Abel has previously associated with his action’s repercussions but Magdalena’s carnival is nothing if not unpredictable. (S) Skottie Young (A) Jorge Corona
Smurfs Take> Jorge Corona was just added as a guest for Dink! I have been on since the first issue and couldn’t be happier with this title and its vivid storytelling. This is a classic in the making for sure with some of the best characters I have seen for some time.
Immortal Hulk #15> Dr. Leonard Samson is a gamma mutate and part-time super hero who recently came back from the dead. He’s been wanting to discuss that with an old patient of his… But he’s not here to see Bruce Banner. Take a seat on the couch, IMMORTAL HULK. It’s going to be quite a session. (S) Al Ewing (A) Joe Bennett (CA) Alex Ross
Smurfs Take> I really liked Leonard Samson dead. Should have known they would find a way to bring him back. However what is the weird twist? The one thing I have learned about this title is wait for the horror style twist. This book has been spectacular and unlike and Hulk title you have known.
Batman #67> The “Knightmares” continue as Batman chases a new foe in an impossible race. Over rooftops, across alleyways, up and down the streets of Gotham City, this lightning-fast crook outsmarts the Dark Knight at every turn. Is that because the man under the mask is someone more familiar than he knows? Artist Lee Weeks returns to BATMAN for an all-out action issue unlike any you’ve seen before. (S) Tom King (A/CA) Lee Weeks
Avengers #17> A NEW VAMPIRE ORDER!
The final fate of Dracula! The Avengers vs. Ghost Rider?! Blade vs. the Shadow Colonel! And the world of the Marvel U vampires will be changed forever. Who will be the new Lord of the Damned? (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) David Marquez
Smurfs Take> Right now for best team book on the shelf Avengers is tied with Justice League. Both are doing some incredible work and unexpected story lines. You really can’t miss by picking up both titles. For this one it’s the characters you wouldn’t expect that just mesh so well.
Guardians of the Galaxy #3> The Dark Guardians ascend!
With a new Thanos rising, the galaxy calls for a group of heroes who will use any means necessary to end this threat. Unfortunately for Star-Lord, that’s NOT the Guardians of the Galaxy! (S) Donny Cates (A) Geoff Shaw (CA) David Marquez
Smurfs Take> There can only be one Thanos! I also think I have seen this version of the Guardians before. Does that mean I want to miss the action? Oh not by a longshot and add Cosmic Ghost Rider to the mix, now we are talking some mayhem.
