invisible womanInvisible Woman #1> Fresh from the pages of FANTASTIC FOUR, for the first time Susan Storm-Richards stars in her own limited series – and the secrets about her past revealed therein will shake readers’ perceptions of the Invisible Woman forevermore! Years ago, she undertook an espionage mission for S.H.I.E.L.D. – and now it’s up to her to save her former partner from death at the hands of international terrorists! (S) Mark Waid (A) Mattia De Iulis (CA) Adam Hughes

Smurfs Take> One of the most under used and under estimated characters in the Marvel Universe! I know the sorted past with not wanting to us the FF because Marvel didn’t have the film rights but that is still no excuse. I know if we wanted a story just focused on her they could just do a few issue arc and call it good, and they have. I for one am excited to see the Invisible Woman branch out from the FF; Thing has had multiple series and I feel Sue would be way more entreating of a read. It will also be nice to have her away from the team for a change to show just how cool of a character she is.     

vox machina 1Critical Role Vox Machina Origins Series 2 #1> The unlikely heroes of Vox Machina are back in action! Join familiar faces from Critical Role’s smash-hit first campaign as their escapades in Stilben lead them toward new adventure-and a dire threat to Grog when he goes missing in the night. Tracking him down will see the party lose one member, gain another, and reveal parts of Grog’s secret past. But first, his friends have to actually find him. From award-nominated writer Jody Houser (Orphan Black, Stranger Things) and first series author Olivia Samson, with colorist Msassyk (Isola, Gotham Academy) and letterer Ariana Maher (James Bond, Xena)! (S) Jody Houser (A) Olivia Samson (CA) Fiona Staples

Smurfs Take> I have to admit I know next to nothing about the Critical Role. It was until recently at DPCC that I got a much larger exposure and understanding of the characters and story and just what all the talk has been about. This looks like the perfect way to get in, looks like the perfect way to get further into a world that even I would love to have a character running around in.

batman 74Batman #74> “The Fall and the Fallen” concludes with a father-and-son showdown. Flashpoint Batman reveals his fiendish reasoning for dragging Batman into the desert, and who is in the coffin they’ve been dragging along with them. But is this a step too far? It’s Bruce Wayne versus Thomas Wayne for the right to wear the cowl, and all of Gotham City hangs in the balance! (S) Tom King (A) Mikel Janin (CA) Mitch Gerads

Smurfs Take> Well it’s about damn time! I just want to see a no holds bar UFC style knock down between these two. All this build up, all the mind games, and I am so excited for this to finally happen.


black cat 2Black Cat #2> Felicia Hardy prides herself on the fact that she can get into ANYWHERE… but does that REALLY include Doctor Strange’s SANCTUM SANCTORUM?! Can the Black Cat get into the most protected house in the Marvel Universe? YES. But the question really is… can she handle what’s inside? (S) Jed MacKay (A) Travel Foreman (CA) J. Scott Campbell

Smurfs Take> What can you really tell from a first issue? The Black Cat has been around forever it feels but still they have never really explored her character. She has always been a strong supporting character for Spidey but so much just left open. The dive in so far was good, solid start and I want to know more, see more, the question I have is if it’s there for the character to give.

flash 74Flash #74> “The Flash Year One” continues! The Turtle has made his grand entrance, and it’s about to bring down the house! As an untested hero with the mastery of his abilities still in its infancy, Barry Allen will face the toughest challenge of his life to defend Central City from the invading forces of those who seek its destruction. Our hero is faced with the fateful choice to either become a superhero or die trying! (S) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Howard Porter

Smurfs Take> This has been a big hit for me and I have loved the direction for both the character and story. Who knew I would get such a kick out of the Turtle? This step back to help put Barry into a different light has been pure genius.
