war of realms 4War of Realms #4> Pray to All-Mother Freyja! For in her hands lies the key to ending Malekith’s war. The Black Bifrost – the only method of travel for Malekith’s vast armies – must fall. Even with the Punisher, Ghost Rider, Blade and Hulk (Jen Walters) at Freyja’s side, how many Dark Elves can one goddess kill? While Freyja’s team heads for the swamps of Svartalfheim, Captain America’s rescue mission in Jotunheim faces the wrath of giants, Captain Marvel leads a global assault team against Malekith’s allies and the Black Panther defends Avengers Mountain against a siege of mythic proportion. None of them know that Malekith has a secret weapon. And its bite will prove most…VENOMOUS. (S) Jason Aaron (A) Russell Dauterman (CA) Arthur Adams, Matthew Wilson

Smurfs Take> One of the stories I loved the most in trade paperback form was The Asgardian Wars. It was a bunch of different stories that stretched over the different X-titles. This story is such a wonderful expansion on that very idea.   

batman 71Batman #71> “The Fall and the Fallen” continues! Will it be father and son working together, or tearing each other apart? When it comes to the Waynes, expect a little of both. In the quest to get Bruce Wayne to hang up the cape and cowl, Thomas Wayne is going to have to use a little tough love. Only, not all the muscle behind it will be his own. (S) Tom King (A/CA) Mikel Janin

Smurfs Take> This fight is one that I have been long awaiting. I knew way back in Flashpoint at some time the two Wayne’s would have to cross paths. This is going to be some glorious carnage.

 

 

spiderman 21Amazing Spider-Man #21> THE CLIMACTIC CONCLUSION OF “HUNTED” IS HERE! Spidey faces an impossible situation that will push him as far as he’s ever been pushed. Who lives and who dies when the hunters become the prey? (S) Nick Spencer (A) Gerardo Sandoval (CA) Humberto Ramos

Smurfs Take> Much to my surprise this did not suck. It was a great story, well laid out, and had forgot how much I love Kraven.  

 

 

 

 

superman 11Superman #11> Named one of the best books of the year by Paste Magazine, Comics Beat and others, the Unity Saga continues! The drama of the House of El tears the galaxy in half as Superman and his son are forced to confront his father about the secrets of Krypton in front of the gathered heads of the galaxy. Superman makes a bold choice that will forever change his relationship to the Earth, the Justice League and his family! Witness one of the most important chapters in Superman history! (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis

Smurfs Take> This title has been amazing and a story that feels fresh and so unlike anything we have seen for a very long time in a Superman book. Bendis and Prado have made me a Superman fan.

guardians 5Guardians of the Galaxy #5> HELA HATH NO FURY!
At the mercy of the Goddess of Death! Hela’s dreams of resurrecting Thanos are finally within reach…But what will the Guardians have to sacrifice in order to prevent that? (S) Donny Cates (A) Geoff Shaw (CA) David Marquez
