Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay and it’s a great day to be a comic book enthusiast! May the fourth be with you on this spectacular day of celebration and why not treat yourself with a trip to the local comic shop to get something nice. Lots to choose from and here are the top 5 must read from Smurf to give you some ideas on the best way to do that. Sponsored by All C’s Collectibles who is running out of vendor tables quickly for the All C’s Fan Expo, contact them for details and now we’ve got five stacked high ready to fly:

Star Wars Obi-Wan #1> Fast approaches the ultimate destiny of one of the Jedi’s most renowned masters! As he spends his final days in the remote deserts of Tatooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi takes time to reflect on — and record — key moments of a heroic life long-lived. Writing in old leather-bound journals from his hermit’s hut, Obi-Wan remembers his days as a young Jedi Initiate, his trials as a Padawan, the crucible of Jedi Knighthood and the Clone Wars, and some of the earliest challenges he faced as a true Master of the Force! In this tale, Obi-Wan considers a watershed Youngling adventure he narrowly survived on Coruscant when he was but eight years of age…This is just the beginning of his Jedi journey! (S) Christopher Cantwell (A) Ario Anindito

 Smurfs Take> The greatest Jedi of all time! Yes I know what I said and I stand by it. I have been waiting for since I first saw Star Wars film, to know more about Obi-Wan and so excited they are finally going to fill in the holes. With the successes of the Vader title they should have done this awhile ago.  

Spider-Man 2099: Exodus Alpha #1> Miguel O’Hara is back! After fighting battles across the timestream, MIGUEL O’HARA is at last back defending his present and our future! For SPIDER-MAN 2099, the only thing constant about life in Nueva York is change. So when a cataclysmic crash creates a new Garden of Eden in what was once the American Wastelands, Spider-Man knows exactly what the next atrocity will be. Watch as THE CABAL plans to set society ablaze — and you’ll never guess who is leading them! (S) Steve Orlando (A) Paul Fry

 Smurfs Take> I have always liked Spider-Mann 2099 and when his title was cancelled years ago that that would be the last we saw of him. Glad I was wrong as he’s appeared a couple of time in the Amazing title and a few other books. Now with him on deck for the new movie I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of him and the cost of his first appearance to move up. Like him a lot more the Ben that’s for sure.

Little Monsters #3> Having finally feasted on “real food,” Billy is acting strangely, and the other young vampires are nervous about the potential threat to their sanctuary. Romie is still missing from the group, but is accompanied elsewhere by a mysterious new friend… (S) Jeff Lemire (A) Dustin Nguyen

 Smurfs Take> Great series! This has been a dark little story with some impressive characters that really pull you in, almost forgetting they’re vampires.

Flashpoint Beyond #1> Batman’s hunt for the Clockwork Killer brings him to Europe and face to face with the mad king, Aquaman. On the eve of Aquaman’s sinking of London, Batman infiltrates his stronghold and goes on the warpath for answers. Nothing matters to Batman, whose world is already dead, but if he can track down the Clockwork Killer, Thomas can save his son’s world and put everything back together again. (S) Tim Sheridan, Jeremy Adams, Geoff Johns (A) Xermanico Mikel Janin

 Smurfs Take> Deep dive into Flashpoint is a great idea! So many things left hanging, stories to explore, and what better way to expand on them than with Thomas Wayne Batman. I do like the darker side to this character and the motivation behind him is a great twist to the lore. Can’t wait to see what surprises they have in store for us.

Iron Man #19> AT LAST, THE STUNNING CONCLUSION OF THE BOOKS OF KORVAC! Tony Stark must face Michael Korvac once again, and once and for all. No cosmic powers, no allies or henchmen, and no…armor? This is the very end of a very long and very rocky journey; Tony’s going to have to get by on his own blood, sweat, and tears. For the first time in his life, he’s all out of ideas. (S) Christopher Cantwell (A) C Cafu

 Smurfs Take> This has been such a clever and well done series reigniting my love of Iron Man. I know I have gone on at length about it but the creative team on this title have done phenomenal work. This is what Iron Man should be!  

Marvel Animated Nightcrawler Statue> A Gentle Giant Ltd. release! Bamf! Kurt Wagner appears in a cloud of smoke and brimstone in this all-new animated-style statue of Nightcrawler! Based on the Marvel Comics variant-cover artwork of Skottie Young, this approximately 5-inch statue of the X-Men’s teleporter captures him in joyful exuberance. Featuring artwork-accurate paint applications and limited to only 3,000 pieces, this statue comes packaged in a full-color box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Sculpted by Casen Barnard!

Smurfs Take> I have always wanted my own Bamf and now I can finally have one. Well sort of. This will go great with the other Skottie Young statues I have already picked up, don’t miss out on this one I have a feeling it’s going to go quickly.
