#NewComicsDay at last and you can skip ahead with what to pick up first with Smurfs #Top5 picks right here. But wait there is more as Thor, Ghost Rider, and Avengers of the Wastelands all deserves a look as well. If you have been looking for some amazing stories this is where you should start. Smurfs High Five is sponsored by All C’s Collectibles who is ready to set up your hold slot today, now let’s see what’s Smurfs got for us.
Star Wars Bounty Hunters #1> NEVER BETRAY A BOUNTY HUNTER – ESPECIALLY IF IT’S BOBA FETT!
Years ago, VALANCE and fellow bounty hunters BOSSK and BOBA FETT took on a mission that went sideways in a bad way after Valance’s mentor, NAKANO LASH, violently betrayed them. Valance’s team barely escaped with their lives. He never thought he’d face his old mentor ever again…until Lash finally resurfaces under mysterious circumstances. Every bounty hunter in the galaxy wants a piece and Valance is hell-bent on getting to the prize first. He has score to settle-but so does Boba Fett!
ETHAN SACKS (OLD MAN HAWKEYE and GALAXY’S EDGE) and PAOLO VILLANELLI (VADER: DARK VISIONS and JEDI FALLEN ORDER – DARK TEMPLE) are teaming up to bring you the bounty hunter adventure you’ve been waiting for this March! (S) Sacks, Ethan (A) Paolo Villanelli (CA) Lee Bermejo
Smurfs Take> With the Mandalorain becoming the runaway hit we all knew it would be I wouldn’t be surprised if we start seeing more of this. It’s a win for us because who couldn’t use more Boba Fett stories? With the exception of the Jedi I think the Bounty Hunters could carry some of the best stories; show an entirely different side, some good some bad.
Jim Henson Storyteller Ghosts #1> Within Scandanavian folklore, there exists a vengeful ghost known as a Myling. A man traveling at night comes across a haunting cry from within the forest. He enters it to find a spirit who demands to be carried to its proper burial site. The man agrees, but as he travels forth, the spirit’s grip tightens… it grows in size…and the man’s gait slows. Can he unburden himself of this terrifying weight before it brings him down for good? (S) Mark Laszlo (A) Mark Laszlo (CA) Michael Walsh
Smurfs Take> Hits me right in the feels on so many levels! Loved this show back in the day and was just thinking about it after seeing the commercial for Amazing Stories returning. They were always great and mysterious tales and I think with crossing over to comics could be the perfect elevation for it. This is an amazing fit for the Storyteller and about time we get some decent ghost stories!
Decorum #1> There are many assassins in the known universe. This is the story of the most well-mannered one.“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what knife you use.” (S) Jonathan Hickman (A) Mike Huddleston
Smurfs Take> I was talking about this on the podcast this week, how you can start to pick out artists styles at just a glance. I think for some reason I’m just drawn to Hickman and I don’t mean to be. I liked what I had seen about this book, the world, art, and the characters. Had no idea it was his but that says something to me, the fact that he just continues to produce compelling and engaging stories superhero or not.
Green Lantern 2 #2> Hal Jordan is stuck on the worst possible planet he can imagine: Earth! Reassigned by the bold new Guardians to patrol his home planet, Hal finds himself a bit bored with his familiar haunts versus the infinite expanse and adventure of outer space. But when an invasion from the dawn of time strikes the planet, can Hal stop…the Ornitho-Men?! (S) Grant Morrison (A/CA) Liam Sharp
Smurfs Take> Love it! It’s weird…spacey weird but I love it. This is the perfect melding of writer and character that will be talked about for generations to come.
Flash #751> The Flash battles Godspeed as “Flash Age” continues! In this issue, Paradox enlists Godspeed in his mission to erase the Flash legacy from existence! But when Godspeed’s allegiance comes into question, Paradox proves he may be the strongest foe Barry Allen’s ever faced! (S) Joshua Williamson (CA) Rafa Sandoval, Howard Porter
Smurfs Take> There are so many things going on in Flash that it’s hard to list all of them and why this book continues to be in my top 5. I could use every bad running pun at this point, and may have already but the pace of this title and what this creative team is doing is fantastic.
Batman Black & White by Doug Mahnke> DC Collectibles presents the 99th statue in its BATMAN BLACK & WHITE line: Batman by Doug Mahnke. This gravity-defying statue features Batman in mid-leap with his grappling gun at the ready. The BATMAN BLACK & WHITE line wouldn’t be complete without this statue, which showcases Mahnke’s extensive work on Batman from the early 2000s.
• Limited to 5,000 pieces and individually numbered
• Statue measures approximately 7.3″ tall
• Allocations may occur
• Final products may differ from images shown
Smurfs Take> To be honest I just really like the action pose. Yes I do have a thing for this particular statue line but the last few have been so well done they are hard to ignore. This is also #99 in the line which means next up is the most awaited 100 by McFarlane.
