#NewComicsDay and I can’t think of a better way to start an extended weekend than with a fresh batch of books. I’m sure everyone will be walking out of the shop with a stack but here’s a great place to start with Smurf’s #Top5 must read pick’s of the week. Sponsored by All C’s Collectibles who’s counting down to their big Black Friday sale, be sure to check out the deals. For now however we’ve got five stacked high ready to fly:
Hulk #1> “MAD SCIENTIST” PART 1 OF 6
The uncontrollable rage of the Hulk has reached an all-new level, and nobody – including the Avengers – is prepared to handle it. But is it really the Hulk that people should be afraid of, or is there something missing to this puzzle? Join the superstar creative team of Donny Cates and Ryan Ottley as they look to the stars for the next era of HULK! (S) Donny Cates (A/CA) Ryan Ottley
Smurfs Take> I know the last Hulk series wasn’t for everyone, and a few fans didn’t care for the different take on him at all. With this it seems we are going back to the Hulk mad and Hulk smash routine but I have a feeling there’s more to it especially with Cates doing the story. If there’s one thing he’s proven is creating a story with a few twists to it.
Echolands #4> THE MAJOR IMAGE COMICS EVENT OF 2021 CONTINUES…
Hope Redhood and her allies have been pursued by a violent golem, attacked by a giant sea serpent, and imprisoned by a former friend. No matter the threat, the team is determined to discover the secret behind Teros Demond’s stolen gem. But when an unexpected clue arises, they’ll have to brave the depths of the ocean to face their future with the enigmatic Oracle!(S) W. Haden Blackman, J.H. Williams III (A) J.H. Williams III, Todd Klein, Dave Stewart
Smurfs Take> Fun wild read. Really enjoying this book and all of the different fantasy elements in play. I know I get tired of saying it but Image really does create some compelling stories.
Iron Man #14> BEHOLD THE BIRTH OF COSMIC IRON MAN! Iron Man has tasted a higher power and is forever changed. Moments before, he was locked in mortal combat with his worst adversary in years – KORVAC – but now he finds his very existence altered beyond recognition. Indeed, fundamental concepts like space and time have taken on a new meaning. But what does this portend for Tony Stark, a man who even when stripped bare feels he knows best? What happens when his ego – often challenged, condemned and even derided by both foes and friends – is suddenly given a limitless avenue? It could certainly mean radical and drastic change for the entire universe…and reality itself. (S) Christopher Cantwell (A) Angel Unzueta, Cafu
Smurfs Take> I’m not sure why this book isn’t as popular as it should be. Some of the best Iron Man stories in years and people are missing out or just don’t know what they want from the title. I know there’s been disappointment with the previous runs just not delivering something compelling for the character but I can tell you that’s not the case now. Get it, read it, love it.
DC Vs. Vampires #2> The war for the very survival of the human race has begun! A mysterious new vampire lord has already put a plan in motion to conquer the Earth, and the first step is-destroy the Justice League! But the World’s Greatest Detective might be Earth’s last hope, and it’s time for the Bat-Family to hunt! (S) Matthew Rosenberg (A) Otto Schmidt
Smurfs Take> I don’t know how this fit’s into cannon or if it’s supposed to but I liked the first issue. It’s DC’s version of Marvel Zombies is how I’m choosing to look at it and that’s fine with me. It’s nice to have just a reckless story that keeps you guessing who’s next.
Thor #19> “GOD OF HAMMERS” STARTS HERE! Mjolnir has gone missing! And nobody, not even the powerful eyes of Lady Sif, is able to locate it. So Thor must turn to the last person he wants help from…Odin. For until the hammer is found, nobody in the realms is safe! Artist Nic Klein is back for the twists and turns not even the All-Father is ready for! (S) Donny Cates (A) Nic Klein, Olivier Coipel
Smurfs Take> When a joke from a movie becomes a comic title. This title continues to deliver every month with quality and compelling stories. It’s fantastic and excited to see how this plays out.
