Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsday and it’s days like this that make me happy to be a comic book enthusiast! There is a lot to read this week, not only the regular titles but some of the Halloween specials to get you into the spirit. Smurf is here to help pick out a few treats and our sponsor All C’s Collectibles is here to help with your needs by offering to deliver those treats. Here’s what we think you should start off with first:

Batman #101> A new day dawns in Gotham and the horrors of “The Joker War” are just being realized. A bold new direction for Batman begins as Bruce Wayne’s circumstances are forever changed. How did the Joker’s rampage affected the citizens of the city? And why does Cole Cash-a.k.a.-Grifter, now work for Lucius Fox?!

Smurfs Take> I’m not sure what I was expecting for the end of the Joker war if I’m honest. Also with the Future World storyline looming out there could have spoiled some of the story a little bit for me. I do want to know what happens next, like always and setting the stage for the next big story usually is more exciting than the actual story.

Iron Man #2> TONY HAS COMPANY…AND HIS NAME IS KORVAC! Tony Stark continues to roughly dismantle the fancy, shiny and sophisticated ways of his past…but the world doesn’t seem quite convinced that he’s changed his rich guy tune. As Iron Man, he takes the fight to the streets, looking to sacrifice himself on the altar of super heroism again and again—first with Arcade and Absorbing Man then with medical vigilante Cardiac—all in hope of redemption in the eyes of the public. Only trouble is he might get himself killed in the process, and there are still plenty of people in line with an ax to grind. Old friends like HELLCAT try to help him find peace of mind and speak truth to his stubborn god complex, but lurking on the horizon is a threat Tony—and indeed the entire cosmos—hasn’t seen in years…KORVAC…yet another guy who believes he’s smarter than the rest of the universe. (S)Christopher Cantwell (A) C Cafu

 Smurfs Take> Alright, now that was a fun first issue and I never thought I would see Terax get manhandled like that. I liked what I saw and the potential for this storyline could be just what this title has been looking for. Looks right, feels right, there for….

Maestro #3> WHO KILLED THE WORLD? The Hulk meets the Maestro—and it’s not who you expect it to be. And when a band of rebels tries to recruit the Hulk to fight beside them, his answer sends shock waves through Dystopia. This world will never be the same…and neither will the Hulk. (S) Peter David (A) Dale Keown German Peralta

Smurfs Take> So far it’s been good and with every turn of the page you start to understand the world of the Maestro that we already know. It’s had the perfect balance of future world building while filling in the holes of what happened, and complemented by familiar settings but just a little different. Not disappointed with this at all!

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #6> TWO AGAINST ONE! With precious cargo and a price on his head, VALANCE must go to the only person in the galaxy he can trust. But the UNBROKEN CLAN has sent a deadly and unique pair of bounty hunters after him! No one in the galaxy can escape the combined cunning of 4-LOM and ZUCKUSS!!! (S)Ethan Sacks (A) Lee Bermejo

Smurfs Take> I remember seeing Empire in the theater and when they flashed the bounty hunters on the screen for the first time I was hooked. I wanted to know about all of them, had to collect all of them wanted so much more than they gave us. This is a dream come true, any time I can get a peek into these two characters world’s I’m in.

The Scumbag #1> “JAZZ APPLE ARMAGEDDON,” Part One The fate of the world rests in the hands of the worst person on it! NEW ONGOING SERIES from the writer of DEADLY CLASS! RICK REMENDER launches an all-new comedy espionage series, THE SCUMBAG—the story of Ernie Ray Clementine, a profane, illiterate, drug-addicted biker with a fifth-grade education. He’s the only thing standing between us and total Armageddon because this dummy accidentally received a power-imbuing serum, making him the world’s most powerful super spy. This new ongoing series will feature a murderers’ row of all-star artistic talent rotating each issue. The first issue showcases the stunning work of LEWIS LaROSA, with subsequent chapters and covers by brilliant talents such as ANDREW ROBINSON, ERIC POWELL, TULA LOTAY, WES CRAIG, ROLAND BOSCHI, SIMONE DI MEO, MARGUERITE SAUVAGE, DUNCAN FEGREDO, YANICK PAQUETTE, MIKE McKONE, DAVE JOHNSON, MORENO DINISIO, and many more! (S) Rick Remender (A) Lewis LaRosa, Moreno Dinisio

Smurfs Take> And now for something completely different. The interiors of this book are amazing, and the idea behind the story seems fun and waaaay outside of the box. How can I resist?
