Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay I am loaded down with a bigger stack than normal this week after hitting the shop at midnight for Spiderman. Fear not, there is plenty to go around for everyone and Smurf is going to help you consider where to start this week with his #Top5 picks and take on the issue; sponsored by All C’s Collectibles Fan Expo.

Spiderman 1Spider-Man#1> WHO IS CADAVEROUS?!
The most shocking and incredible comic of 2019 is here as J.J. ABRAMS (STAR WARS, STAR TREK, SUPER 8) and his son HENRY ABRAMS are joined by superstar artist SARA PICHELLI (MILES MORALES, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) team up for SPIDER-MAN! What do they have planned for Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson?! Who is Cadaverous?! The Modern Master of Mystery Makes His Marvel this September! (S) J. J. Abrams, Henry Abrams (A) Sara Pichelli (CA) Olivier Coipel

Smurfs Take> We talked about this title on the podcast a while ago. The sudden surge of big name Hollywood types coming to write comics is slightly alarming. That in mind I am curious what kind of story they have built for web head.

middlewest-11Middlewest #11> A despondent Abel, carrying the weight of what he’s learned in the Winter Woods, angrily parts ways his companion. Fearing for the boy’s safety in the run-down Rust Belt city they wandered into, Fox returns just in time to find Abel snatched and in a heap of trouble! (S) Skottie Young (A) Jorge Corona

Smurfs Take> Just fantastic!






batman 79Batman #79> In the concluding chapter of the two-part “City of Bane” interlude, Batman and Catwoman pull a job to stop Bane’s supply ship from smuggling dangerous cargo into Gotham City. It’ll send a message back to the big guy that his reign of terror is soon to be over…but what does it also signal for the future of Bruce and Selina? (S) Tom King (A) Clay Mann (CA) Tony S. Daniel

Smurfs Take> I so love the stories of Batman when you can take him out of Gotham. This has been a terrific arc, come to think of it since the wedding a great ride and a blast to read.  



once & futureOnce & Future #2> The McGuire family has held back supernatural threats for generations, but this time they messed up. As an ancient evil arises from the grave, Bridgette and Duncan find themselves up against forces bigger than they could have expected, and faces new and old are about to complicate things further. (S) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora

Smurfs Take> Well crafted, provoking, and it made me want to see what happens next. The first issue hit on all cylinders for me and then some. I am always say I want something new and different and I got my wish.



superman 15Superman #15> At last, it’s the return of the Legion of Super-Heroes! The greatest super heroes of the 32nd century have traveled back in time not just to meet the heroes who inspired them, but to make an offer…but to which hero? And why will that choice tear Superman’s life apart? Plus, the fallout from Lex Luthor’s conversation with Lois Lane escalates! What dark secret did Lex tell Lois? (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A) Joe Prado (A/CA) Ivan Reis

Smurfs Take> Where are my Legion fans out there? There have been a lot of positives surrounding this title and I would never have thought I would enjoy a Superman series this much. I know Legion has a special place in the heart for some collectors but to be honest I’m rather indifferent towards them. While I know Bendis has everything well under control I wonder how you interject a team from the future when DC can’t even keep their current timeline on track.
