#NewComicsDay Even with Smurf away at Fan Fest Ghostusters he was too excited about this week’s titles to skip posting his High Five picks. The #Top5 are sponsored by All C’s Collectibles and be sure to check out Superman, Immortal Hulk, and Amazing Spider-Man this week as well.
Batman Who Laughs #6> True happiness begins in the heart. Our memories and emotions can play tricks on us, though, and divert one’s reality into something completely different. The Batman Who Laughs has based his entire worldview on this very concept, and it is in this moment that he must finally confront the one man who stands in his way, the one man who could complete or halt his plan…the last Bruce Wayne. It is here, on the home turf of Wayne Manor, that Bruce relives the happiest moment of his life-the moment he became the Batman Who Laughs. Will Batman be able to outthink the Dark Multiverse version of himself and stop his most sinister end? Or will the original Dark Knight succumb fully and let go of his morality? While good almost always wins, this issue is the start of something more…setting up a larger plan based in the ultimate betrayal of infection, loyalty and true happiness. This is not the end…it’s only the beginning. (S) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Jock
Smurfs Take> This series has been crazy! Wild! Nuts! The way this story has gone has just me speechless. It’s an absolute page turner and work of art.
Silver Surfer Black #1> Spinning out of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1, almost the entire galaxy’s defenders have been blown through a black hole, including the Silver Surfer! But the story doesn’t end there… In order to fight back the oblivion, Surfer will have to fight to save his own soul and not lose himself to the void. Follow the Sentinel of the Spaceways on a journey that will change him forever!

Smurfs Take> The past few Surfer titles have left a lot to be desired, not going to lie. I don’t know if he is that hard of a character to write but it hasn’t been since the 90’s that I have really enjoyed his title. Now with this approach and just how the Guardians Annual ended shows real promise.
Sonata #1> “THE FALL” In this all-new series from DAVID HINE (THE BULLETPROOF COFFIN), BRIAN HABERLIN (WITCHBLADE), and GEIRROD VAN DYKE (SPAWN, MEDIEVAL SPAWN/WITCHBLADE), two cultures clash on a planet they each believe is their Promised Land. The Rans are a peace-loving people, but the Tayans are a race of warriors who seek to colonize and control. The mysterious Sleeping Giants also call this place home, though no one knows if they’re monsters or the gods of legend. And amidst all this, a young woman named Sonata is willing to break all the rules to find her place in this world—and she’s not about to let sleeping gods lie.

Event Leviathan #1> The groundbreaking and always-inventive team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev (Jinxworld’s SCARLET, Marvel’s Daredevil) reunite on a mystery thriller that stretches across the DC Universe and touches every character from Batman to Superman to the Question to Talia al Ghul. With startling ease, a newly dangerous and aggressive Leviathan wipes out all its competition and now turns its sights to molding the world into its vision of order. Can the new threat’s growth be stopped…and who’s guiding its new agents of chaos? (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Alex Maleev
Smurfs Take> This looks phenomenal and a story that is sure to captivate your adventurer side. Bendis has been on fire and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
Flash #72> “The Flash Year One” continues! Things are not looking pretty for the Flash, who just got his scarlet butt handed to him by the Turtle. If Barry Allen thought being a hero was going to be easy, he’d better think again after this beating–but will it be enough to detour his destiny? (S) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Howard Porter
