Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay and it’s a great day to be a comic book enthusiast! Ready for another pulse pounding adventure filled shelf of titles. Smurf is here with his must read top 5 to help you navigate the dangers ahead. Our sponsors at All C’s are here to help as well with two locations and a discount by mentioning this at checkout. In the meantime we’ve got five stacked high ready to fly:  

Star Wars: Darth Vader- Black, White, & Red #2> JASON AARON CONTINUES HIS RETURN TO THE GREATEST VILLAIN IN THE GALAXY! Along with artist LEONARD KIRK, these two titans of comics tell a tale of horror and intrigue! PLUS, David Pepose makes his STAR WARS debut! (S) David Pepose, Jason Aaron (A) Leonard Kirk

 Smurfs Take> The first issue was great and I think this is one of the best ways of telling Vader stories. It’s an amazing way to explore just how vicious and feared he was through the galaxy without having to explain the journey there. I just wonder how far and dark they are willing to go.

Green Arrow #2> Green Arrow is alive…but where the hell is he?! That’s what Roy Harper and Black Canary want to know, and their search takes them into the bowels of Belle Reve. But they’d better hurry-the stranded Oliver Queen and another lost member of the Green Arrow family are both being hunted by a brand-new villain called…Troublemaker. (S) Joshua Williamson (A) Sean Izaakse

 Smurfs Take> Alright, digging the first issue and ready to see where it goes. Green Arrow is like the Iron Man title, in that it starts strong and then falls flat. But of the new launch this has been one of the better starts for me.

Thor #34> THOR, DOCTOR DOOM, and…THANOS?! While Thor races Doctor Doom through time before Doom can tear reality itself asunder in his latest grab for power, they find Thanos at the heart of it all, finally revealing the power struggle that brought Thor’s grandfather, Bor, and Thanos to all-out war – the ultimate weapon, hidden away for millennia. But Doom will stop at nothing to control it! (S) Donny Cates (A) Nic Klein

 Smurfs Take> I don’t think the pages can hold all of the action in this issue. I’m excited to see a return of Thanos and I’m always in when Doom’s involved. The Thor run has been nothing short of amazing and I have thoroughly enjoyed it for the past few years now and I feel Cates is just hitting his stride.

Fury #1> WHO IS S.C.O.R.P.I.O.? A glamorous rogue agent with a deadly secret lures NICK FURY into the action-thriller of a lifetime…HIS FATHER’S! Following the trail opens NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN FURY FILES from the Howlin’ ’40s…the Swingin’ ’60s…and today! But it takes more than ONE Nick Fury to unlock a mystery decades in the making – and to answer the question…WHO IS S.C.O.R.P.I.O.? (S) Al Ewing (A) Tom Reilly, Ramon Rosanas, Adam Kubert Scot Eaton

 Smurfs Take> It’s been a long while since we’ve had a good Fury story and I hope that changes with this title. I’m excited to see Marvel expand on Fury’s story and looks like this would be a fun read if your looking for a little mystery and espionage.

City Boy #1> First seen in Wildstorm 30th Anniversary Special and Lazarus Planet: Legends Reborn, there’s a new Korean hero named…City Boy! Or at least, that’s the best translation of what the cities call him. City Boy, a.k.a. Cameron Kim, is just trying to make a living by using his powers of being able to speak to cities to find lost and hidden goods to pawn, and it’s only just enough to get by. And those abilities mean he hears everything everywhere all the time, including each city’s histories and the truths behind them. (It’s very loud in his head and something he has to live with.) As his powers get stronger, the cities start forming animal avatars from scraps in order to physically travel alongside him on his adventures. Of course, Gotham is a rat avatar made of city scraps, but what about Metropolis, Blüdhaven, Amnesty Bay, or even Themyscira? And not all cities are so kind…(S) Greg Pak (A) Minkyu Jung

 Smurfs Take> Something a little new and different from DC. I’m curious about the character and approach they are making here and if there will be a larger impact on the rest of the DCU. The one thing DC has always been good at is these obscure characters leading to a larger story. Is that the case? Guess we will see.
