Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay and it’s a great day to be a comic book enthusiast! A week bursting at the seams with enticing stories to dive into and Smurf has a few thoughts on the must read #Top5 titles. Sponsored by All C’s Collectibles who is holding a one day only collectibles buying event this Sunday the 16th at 7172 W 44th Ave; in the meantime we’ve got five stacked high ready to fly:

Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #1> The next pulse-pounding chapter in the saga of New York City’s Guardian Devil, this time starring ELEKTRA as Daredevil! Joined by Rafael De Latorre, Chip Zdarsky continues his landmark run and the DAREDEVIL story that spins directly out of the shocking revelations in the pages of DEVIL’S REIGN! Elektra is the world’s deadliest assassin – and she’s taken a vow not to kill. Someone puts themselves directly in her path with deadly consequences. What else would you expect from the MARVEL UNIVERSE’S GREATEST HUNTER?! (S) Chip Zdarsky (A) Chris Bachalo

Smurfs Take> I know just a few months ago I mentioned how much I wanted Elektra to be doing the Daredevil thing in her own title and I was getting tired of the split story….Guess they were listening.

Batgirls #2> Bondo! Bondo! Bondo! With their new secret muscle car and their new secret patrol route, Batgirls Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown find moving to their new neighborhood—thanks to Oracle instructing them to “lay low”—that much easier to bear because they have each other. Steph begins witnessing some strange actions through the window of the building across the street and can’t help but investigate if the recent murders are connected to them! Meanwhile, Oracle realizes the most effective way for the girls to wear her newly upgraded comms is by piercing their ears, and Cass freaks out! (S) Michael Conrad (A) Jorge Corona

Smurfs Take> The first issue was something fun and different, the typical establishing story with no real surprises and found myself chuckling at a few spots. I wasn’t sure what to expect with a title packed full of Batgirls since we have been down this Gotham road before. The difference this time a lot less conflicting personalities making it difficult to keep track of the story and character development. Big win for the first issue and I love the car….absolutely perfect.   

King Conan #2> THE BARBARIAN KING OF AQUILONIA VS. THE UNKNOWN! CONAN must make an unholy alliance if he is to continue his journey on the Western Sea! But as the fallen warriors of this mysterious isle rise to fight once more, will Conan succumb to the lure of CURSED SORCERY after all this time? And what of his son, PRINCE CONN, and the Kingdom of Aquilonia left behind? (S) Jason Aaron (A) Mahmud Asrar

Smurfs Take> Now we are talking! The story we always wanted but never got after being teased all those years ago with the end credit scene from Conan the Destroyer sitting on his throne. Was not disappointed with the first issue and eager for more with my only wish now is that we get a movie. A must for any Conan fan!   

Joker #11> The Joker is about to learn the harsh reality of the motto “Don’t Mess with Texas” as the Sampsons bring him back home to their ranch…for dinner! PUNCHLINE BACKUP: While Harper Row has been making sure that Punchline stays behind bars, her brother, Cullen, has been getting closer to Punchline’s fans. His new boyfriend, Bluff, is hiding a wicked secret that promises to change the shape of organized crime in Gotham, and Punchline’s role, for years to come. (S) Sam Johns (A) Belen Ortega, Giuseppe Camuncoli

Smurfs Take> The Joker comes to dinner, if the story doesn’t end with the house burning to the ground I will be surprised. But the one thing I have learned from this title is; it’s far from predictable.

Star Wars Bounty Hunters #20> FORLORN FOR 4-LOM! T’ONGA and her bounty hunters are desperate to recover 4-LOM for their mission…but the upgraded killer droid is the one hunting them aboard a ghost ship. Can ZUCKUSS survive a reunion with his onetime partner? Meanwhile, VUKORAH makes her move…and the criminal underworld will never be the same! (S) Ethan Sacks (A) Paolo Villanelli

 Smurfs Take> So excited for this read! I don’t know if Book of Boba just has me even more in the mood for bounty hunter stories or just getting a story with all of these characters in it. Soooo many happy thoughts for this!
