Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay these are the weeks I live for, so many new books hitting the shelves you have no idea where to start when you get home. Or standing at the shop wanting to get everything but you only have so much to spend or run the risk of upsetting the wife. We are here to help with Smurfs High Five picks for the week. Be sure to let our sponsor All C’s Collectibles know you saw this at checkout for a discount on your purchase.

curse of the Knight 4Batman Curse of the White Knight #4> After a shocking tragedy strikes the Bat-Family and Montoya takes the reins, Babs defies the GTO and goes rogue in the hunt for Azrael. When her new methods prove almost too effective, Batman intervenes-leaving Harley to her own devices in the wake of her own emergency. (S) Sean Murphy (A/CA) Sean Murphy

Smurfs Take> It’s a classic being crafted before our very eyes!





middlewest-12Middlewest #12> There are countless tales of those unfortunate enough to get tangled up in the Raider Farms. Far fewer are the stories of those who escape their grasp. (S) Skottie Young (A) Jorge Corona

Smurfs Take> If you’re tired of me telling you to buy this book, you should buy it so you know why I keep saying it. If you are then you know why I’m addicted to the characters and the world that Skottie and Jorge have built. One of the best books on the shelf and top Image has to offer for sure.




spidey full circle 1Amazing Spider-Man Full Circle #1> A summons from SHIELD leads Peter Parker into a globe-spanning adventure that will test him as never before, one in which the future of all mankind lies in his gloved, webbed hands! Who is the mysterious prisoner in the steel box who keeps propelling the wall-crawler onward?
Nick Spencer and an all-star team of Marvel’s biggest writers and artists take up the challenge to create the wildest, maddest, most unconventional AMAZING SPIDER-MAN story of all! Guest-starring Nick Fury, Wolverine and Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham! (S) Nick Spencer, Jonathan Hickman, More (A) Chris Bachalo, Chris Sprouse, More (CA) Rod Reis

Smurfs Take> I love when you get Spidey out of New York and a whole new background for him to work in. I like him in the city but after a few decades of it a trip to the country might be nice. Make him an agent of SHIELD to add to the story and I’m in.

Black Adam 1Black Adam Year of the Villain #1> Spinning out of the events of BATMAN/SUPERMAN, Shazam! (infected by the Batman Who Laughs) invades Black Adam’s kingdom! His plan? To turn it into a playground for its new ruler: Billy Batson! (S) Paul Jenkins (A) Inaki Miranda (CA) Klaus Janson, John Romita

Smurfs Take> The story I got out of Superman Batman was a surprise and now let’s get the rest of the story! The Year of the Villain is a hit in my mind but Black Adam has always walked that line of good and bad well. Much like Doctor Doom, all he wants is his people looked after, oh and your total servitude. I guess we are about to see who really is the strongest, him or Shazam.  


The Avengers go to hell to join the wild race for the soul of Robbie Reyes, who’s desperate to learn the truth once and for all about what sort of Ghost Rider he’s become. But those sorts of answers always come with a dreadful cost. Especially when Mephisto is involved. (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Stefano Caselli

Smurfs Take>  Maybe it’s just because of the Ghost Rider kick I’m on or just really enjoying the Avengers story but it takes the last top spot over Flash, Hulk, and Thor. I have been onboard with this team since the start and have enjoyed every issue. This one is the best of all worlds if you’re into any of the titles I mentioned above.
