Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay nothing like cold weather to encourage a healthy haul of comics to take home and read. A few thoughts on this weeks book hitting the shelves at your local shop from Smurf to jumpstart that buying frenzy. And if you’re looking to add some room for them our sponsor All C’s Collectibles is offering cash for you’re collectables you can part with. Now lets take a look at the #top5 #mustreads!

Strange Academy #7> The first arc ended in loss, but teeters on the edge of tragedy. There are some that Strange cannot save, but can he minimize the graves they’ll have to dig on campus? All this and a huge secret of the Strange Academy is revealed! (S) Skottie Young (A/CA) Humberto Ramos

Smurfs Take> Wow is all I can say about last issue and the series so far. Dare I even say that this is Marvels best monthly title? I dare. I try not to throw around such grandiose statements like that but it’s difficult to find a better comparison at this moment. Read this title is all I can say!  

Strange Adventures #8> The battle against the Pykkts continues! The Justice League-including Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, Batman, the Flash, Superman, and Wonder Woman-has scattered across the Earth, pushing back the marauders wherever they appear. Even Mr. Terrific takes a break from investigating Adam Strange’s alleged war crimes to land a punch or two in their stupid alien faces. But Adam Strange has made his decision: to save Rann at any price-even if that price is the Earth itself! (S) Tom King (A) Evan “Doc” Shaner, Mitch Gerads

Smurfs Take> Great story, one that I never thought I would love as much as I do while using some of the DC “B” list heroes. It really drives home the point of there are no bad characters.

Future State: Dark Detective #2> Bruce Wayne is supposed to be dead…but this Dark Detective is on the run and shining a light on the mystery of his own “murder”: How did the killers know Bruce Wayne was Batman? As the forces of the Magistrate zero in on Bruce’s location, it’s a race against time to unlock the secrets of their surveillance tech and take the fight to the very top! But is the knowledge that Bruce’s own legacy helped to enable the greatest authoritarian force the city of Gotham has ever seen too much to bear? Also in this issue, Jason Todd is a haunted man. He’s working a job he hates on the violent streets of Gotham City as a mask hunter for the Magistrate! He takes contracts to catch villains-or heroes-and brings them in alive-mostly. But when the Red Hood gang reemerges, Jason must solve a mystery that could doom the city. (S) Joshua Williamson, Mariko Tamaki (A) Dan Mora, Giannis Milonogiannis

Smurfs Take> First issue was good, better than a lot of the other Future State titles that hit over the past couple of weeks. It did however raise the question why I liked it? It explores a different type of Batman story and will only be temporary? The set up is key for this and I’m excited to see where it takes us, some actual detective work could be refreshing after the last few months.

Daredevil #26> A DEVIL CONSUMED!
Matt faces a darkness unlike any before. Meanwhile, ELEKTRA may be in over her head for the first time in her life.
DAREDEVIL must find the strength to continue the fight as all hell breaks loose. (S) Chip Zdarsky (A) Mike Hawthorne (A/CA) Marco Checchetto

Smurfs Take> Last issue shot up quick in value as we get a new protector to Hells Kitchen. I was excited to see a Daredevil in prison story and ended up getting more than that by far. I know a few people have been Daredevil in the past but putting Elektra in the suit is a great idea, wait till Bullseye finds out.

Amazing Spider-Man #58>  One era of Nick Spencer’s run comes to a shocking end this issue…
But the seeds that he’s planted along the way for the next start to bloom. Don’t miss this pivotal issue! (S) Nick Spencer (A/CA) Mark Bagley

Smurfs Take> The Nick Spencer run on Spidey comes to an end and it wasn’t bad. Did he make up for turning Cap into a Hydra agent is difficult to say. What I can say is the story we got was something fun a different and will any of it stick.
