hellions 1Hellions #1> BAD IS THE NEW GOOD!
When Krakoa opened their doors to all mutants and forgave all past crimes, they might have known they’d have to accept some of their worst foes into the fold… but they didn’t plan for what to do with them. Not to worry-Mister Sinister knows what to do with the troublemakers. Meet his new Hellions: Scalphunter, Wild Child, Empath, Nanny, Orphanmaker, Psylocke…and Havok?! Under Sinister’s direction, they are sure to become productive members of mutant society. Writer Zeb Wells (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, NEW MUTANTS) and artist Stephen Segovia (WOLVERINE: MANIFEST DESTINY, SUPERIOR CARNAGE) bring you the team you’re going to hate to love! (S) Zeb Wells (A/CA) Stephen Segovia

Smurfs Take> I was just talking about the fate of the original Hellions on the podcast last week. I am all for a good mash up team, villains trying to be the good guys ad no one did it better than the Thunderbolts. Now we will see how the X-Men’s version will go, the only reservation I have is if all of the bad guys are now good who’s left to fight?

Dredd 1Judge Dredd False Witness #1> Written by Eisner-nominated, Glyph Award-winning writer of comics and TV Brandon Easton (Star Trek: Year Five, Transformers, Agent Carter) with superstar artist Kei Zama (Death’s Head, Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye) making her Judge Dredd debut!

Justice Academy drop-out Mathias Lincoln has built a comfortable life working as a courier for Mega-City One’s most elite citizens. But after he uncovers a horrific conspiracy stretching from the Cursed Earth to the city’s seats of power, Mathias also finds himself pursued by legendary lawman Judge Dredd! (S) Brandon M. Easton (A/CA) Kei Zama

Smurfs Take> I don’t remember the last time I saw a new Dredd story! This is awesome! I love this title back in the day and to see it brought back makes the little kid in me jump for joy and I know all I’m going to hear is Karl Urban’s voice. It’s going to be a magical afternoon reading this.

hulk 750Immortal Hulk #33> Celebrating 750 ISSUES of the INCREDIBLE HULK! Something is wrong. Something has compromised the simulacrum. EXTRA-SIZE HULK-SMASHING ACTION! Banner is refusing to yield. Something is wrong. Plus ENTER – THE THOUGHTFUL MAN! Something is wrong. Something is wrong. Something is wrong. (S) Al Ewing (A) Joe Bennett (CA) Alex Ross

Smurfs Take> I never thought Peter David could be outdone when I came to the Hulk but it’s been one big geek out after another with every issue. Inventive storytelling from a whole new perspective.

 

 

Bounty hunters 2Star Wars Bounty Hunters #2> BOUNTY HUNTERS DRAW FIRST BLOOD!
Cyborg bounty hunter VALANCE will stop at nothing to find his old mentor, NAKANO LASH, after her stinging betrayal years earlier. But other bounty hunters have taken the job after a vicious crime lord put out the hit. Everyone’s got a reason to go after the traitorous Nautolan. BOSSK, BOBA FETT and a slew of new killers are hot on Lash’s trail. Can Valance get to her first? And what could have possibly made Lash break her word and betray her fellow hunters? The truth could shake the foundations of the criminal underworld in the galaxy!

Smurfs Take> Bring on the Bounty Hunters! This is what Star Wars is all about! This is what comics are all about, stories to good for TV or movies.

xo 1X-O Manowar #1> WIN THE BATTLE, LOSE THE WORLD.
Aric of Dacia, a 5th century warrior catapulted into the modern day, has been bonded with the sentient alien armor, Shanhara. Together, they are the most powerful weapon in the world: X-O Manowar.
As a mysterious new villain arises to threaten the world, will this ancient warrior evolve into the superhero we need today? (S) Dennis “Hopeless” Hallum (A) Emilio Laiso (CA) Christian Ward

Smurfs Take> My favorite character out of the entire Valiant universe. I have been in love with him since the first issue back in the 90’s when he tossed the CEO of the company he wanted to take over out the window. Since the return to comics the character has been adjusted a little but in some amazing strides forward. Developing his past a little more was genius, the aliens are more intense and brutal than before, and has been some great story telling. You don’t need a lot of the background to understand, just read and enjoy.

nightcrawler 1Giant Size X-Men #1 Nightcrawler> HICKMAN AND DAVIS HAUNT THE XAVIER SCHOOL! Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman teams with legendary artist Alan Davis (X-MEN, EXCALIBUR, AVENGERS) for an eerie tale of adventure! When the X-Men lose contact with the Greymalkin Habitat, it falls to  Nightcrawler to lead a mission into the unknown! (S) Jonathan Hickman (A/CA) Alan Davis

Smurfs Take> I know this makes six for the week but it was one I couldn’t ignore or leave out. Alan Davis doing the art for an X-Book is just too good to pass up.

 

 

once n future TPOnce & Future TP Vol 1> The King is Undead. Long live the King.
When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.
Best-selling writer Kieron Gillen (Die, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day… especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain’s history!
Collects issues #1-6. (S) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora

Smurfs Take> The series that took us all by surprise! Something new and fresh building off an old and established story. This title just made me happy, the characters are great, the world building and pacing are perfect and for the price this is a great deal.
