Avengers No Road Home #1> The team that brought you AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER REUNITES for an all-new weekly AVENGERS adventure!
Night has fallen across the universe. Now seven Avengers – and one new addition – journey forth to bring back the light. But when the threat they face has destroyed even the gods…will anyone make it home? LEGACY #708 (S) Al Ewing, Jim Zub, Mark Waid (A) Paco Medina (CA) Yasmine Putri
Smurfs Take> Going back to a weekly format for this title is a great idea. To keep the momentum of the story and the reader engaged. I like having a fresh story every week when done well an it does help when the story starts to get as involved as the last one. You tend to forget things after a full month and a sea of other titles.
Savage Sword of Conan #1> THE ANCIENT CULT OF KOGA THUN. A MYSTICAL TREASURE.
AND THE ONLY MAN WHO CAN SAVE THE HYBORIAN AGE!
Adrift at sea. No food. No weapons. Death surely awaits him. But the lionhearted CONAN is not so easily subdued, by Crom! When Conan finds himself captured, he unleashes his might on an unsuspecting pirate crew…one whose dark secrets will plunge Conan on the trail of an ancient treasure that may prove to be his undoing!
An all-new age of SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN begins with a five-part tale of swords and sorcery by Gerry Duggan (DEADPOOL, INFINITY WARS) and illustrated by legendary artist Ron Garney (DAREDEVIL, THOR: GOD OF THUNDER) with covers by the incomparable Alex Ross, and breathtaking variant covers by Garney, Rahzzah, comics legend George Perez, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman!
Welcome to the deadly Hyborian Age-hope you survive the experience! (S) Gerry Duggan (A) Ron Garney (CA) Alex Ross
Smurfs Take> Is there such a thing as too much Conan? Nah. I mean I would have waited to get a little further into the regular Conan title but that’s just me. My fear is other people may not think the same and this get lost in shelf.
Marvels Annotated #1> Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the series that changed the way we look at super heroes, the landmark MARVELS is back! In the year 1939, young photojournalist Phil Sheldon attends the sensational unveiling of the fiery android Human Torch – little knowing he is witnessing the dawn of the Age of Marvels! Prepare to relive Marvel’s Golden Age from a whole new point of view as Phil covers the superhuman sightings of the 1930s and 1940s – from the terror caused by the Human Torch’s epic clash with the Sub-Mariner to the patriotism stirred by the debut of Captain America and more! Packed with extras and completely remastered, you don’t want to miss this unique look back at the MARVELS phenomenon! Collecting MARVELS #0-1. (S) Alex Ross, Kurt Busiek (A/CA) Alex Ross
Smurfs Take> There was nothing like this when it came out. The art, story, and approach was brilliant. This is a must read for all comic fans.
Superman #8> The epic secrets of Superman continue to unfold! A few months in space with his paternal grandfather Jor-El changed Jon Kent forever. With Jon now seeking help from his father, the Man of Steel must learn about the war his son and father fought together and set right the wrongs his father may have unleashed on other worlds. See what changed Superboy in such radical ways as the Unity Saga continues. (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A) Brandon Peterson (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis
Smurfs Take> I don’t know how much further they can continue to push this. It’s been a fantastic story and just when I think it can’t go any higher Bendis stacks another level on. This is the Superman we have been wanting for years.
Flash #64> “THE PRICE” part two! The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe take on the one cold case that will tear them apart!
As chief architect of the Sanctuary program that cost so much for so many, especially Wally West, Batman will be held accountable…by the Flash!
A cold case from the Justice League’s past has mysteriously re-opened, and Batman and the Flash-the only two heroes who stand a chance of cracking the case-are at each other’s throats! Our heroes must combat a demon from the past while burying their own inner demons in the process…and neither the World’s Greatest Detective nor the Fastest Man Alive will ever be the same again! But who is really pulling the strings here? And how does Gotham Girl fit into all this? Friendships will be tested and blood will be spilled in this titanic crossover event… (S) Joshua Williamson (A) Rafael Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona (CA) Chris Burnham
Smurfs Take> I enjoyed the first part of the story but there is a reason these two don’t team up too often. I like the idea and so far so good but I think the better contrast is with Superman rather than the Flash. Love the mystery however so I will keep coming back.
Wonder Twins #1> Exiled from their home planet, alien heroes Zan and Jayna must navigate life as teens on Earth at South Metropolis High School, where they’re even bigger outsiders than the typical awkward young adults. Under the watchful eye of Superman, the brother and sister pull monitor duty at the Hall of Justice as interns, while also trying to overcome the pitfalls of Zan’s brash confidence and Jayna’s shy but streetwise persona. If you think you know the Wonder Twins, think again-this book takes the form of the unexpected. (S) Mark Russell (A/CA) Stephen Byrne
Smurfs Take> Wait what? I really don’t know how to feel about this. I want to look away while sticking my nose in the air. Then the other side of they did what is too compelling not to peek and see what it’s all about. The last few years being more of a joke then viable characters has me laughing and scratching my head all at once.
