Avengers 19Avengers #19> WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
Avengers Mountain is under siege as the last stronghold of Earth’s heroes is the subject of an all-out assault by the forces of Malekith! (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Ed McGuinness

Smurfs Take> One of the best run of Avengers of all time! I said it, wont take it back and now add the War of realms to it. It’s been outright destruction, chaos, and mayhem and I absolutely love it.   





flash 71Flash #71> “The Flash Year One” continues! Barry Allen struggles to control his powers as he experiments with his newfound abilities. When one of his tests lands him in a mess, he’ll come face to face with his first villains! (S) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Howard Porter

Smurfs Take> My take on this one is simple. Fantastic and hits on all points.






MCP 5Marvel Comics Presents #5> Welcome to the 1980s, Marvel style! First, Wolverine’s Vigil goes into its fifth decade but doesn’t go the way he planned. Then, join Nightcrawler mid-Cross-Time Caper at the fall of the Berlin Wall! Finally, a pivotal Venom tale by fan-favorite creators Leah Williams and Guillermo Sanna! (S) Charles Soule, Chris Claremont, More (A) Paulo Siqueira, Luke Ross, More (CA) Arthur Adams

Smurfs Take> This title I think is just hitting at the right time for me. The writing and characters they have focused on have been perfect. It’s a step up and even better then how it was back in the early 90’s without a doubt. But the quick little short story approach is a hit and worth a read.

ghosttree 2Ghost Tree #2> Brandt discovers more about his family’s past as he reels from a surprise return of someone that played a pivotal part in his life. Meanwhile, a malevolent creature begins to stalk the departed denizens of the Ghost Tree…
From writer Bobby Curnow (Ward’s Valley, TMNT) and artist Simon Gane (They’re Not Like Us, Godzilla). Character-based drama with heart! (S) Bobby Curnow (A/CA) Simon Gane

Smurfs Take> Great first issue, pulling you into a world that feels normal and familiar but with a hint of the supernatural. The characters are interesting and without going too far into it….soooo cool. What I expected? Sure, but way more.
