Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay Smurf’s High Five is here to help you on this gray day. The perfect way to spend an afternoon but don’t overlook Domino; that has been killing it. Hulk gets a face to face with the Avengers. Flash that doesn’t look to slow down anytime soon. Lots to do, lots to read. Don’t wait to get to your local shop for sure.

infinity wars #4Infinity Wars #4> Requiem is victorious. Infinity has been warped. Reality only has one hope. (S) Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Mike Deodato
Smurfs Take> Soooo not what I was expecting for this story. Sooooo good and worth every page turning moment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

what if #1What If? Punisher #1> WITH GREAT POWER…
When Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben is ruthlessly killed by a burglar Peter let escape, he vows to never let the same fate befall another innocent bystander. From then on, he stands as a figure of cold retribution. Criminals beware – the guilty caught in this spider’s web will be PUNISHED.
But will Parker stand triumphant…or shattered by this twist of fate?
The friendly neighborhood takes a different turn in this WHAT IF? adventure, positing a very different sense of responsibility for the man who will be known as THE PUNISHER, as his battles against villains like the GREEN GOBLIN take a new path! (S) Carl Potts (A) Juanan Ramirez (CA) Chris Stevens
Smurfs Take> This has always been the one soft spot for me when it comes to Marvel comics. I can always remember picking up the latest issue and excited for what little twist awaits me. If done right this could be one of Marvel’s best titles. A way to explore and tell some earth shaking stories that the fans want to read. This is the perfect way to start and everyone should be picking this up today.

spidergeddon #1Spider-Geddon #1> REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE!
Back in 2014, SPIDER-VERSE brought every Spider-Man ever together. This event spinning out of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 has Christos Gage and Dan Slott teaming up to destroy them all. The Inheritors have somehow gotten out of their radioactive prison planet and made their way to the Marvel Universe. It’s going to take a whole Spider-Army to keep them from TAKING IT ALL! Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones! With Jorge Molina on art, the END OF ALL SPIDERS never looked so good! (S) Christos Gage, Dan Slott (A/CA) Jorge Molina
Smurfs Take> If you have been listening to the podcast you know about our thoughts on the new Spiderverse movie. I’m sure this is to complement that, but this does have a great idea. Now that we have all of these Spidermen it’s time to clean house a little. That is as long as Spider-Ham survives.

superman #4Superman #4> As Superman fights to protect the world from Rogol Zaar and the Kryptonian convicts trapped inside the Phantom Zone, the greatest minds on Earth devise a risky plan to return the planet from the deadly prison. With the Earth continuing to crack and crumble and its greatest heroes fall, can the Man of Steel hold the line and give his adopted world a chance to escape? (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis
Smurfs Take> It says something when Superman beats out Flash for a top spot. I am really feeling Flash at the moment but then there is this title. Bendis and Prado are the perfect cohesion. I like when Superman gets pulled out of his normal Metropolis Daily Planet routine. The not so standard story and is allowed to be everything he can. I think over the years we have just made him too super and what this team has been able to do is let that super fully shine.

avengers #9Avengers #9> WORLD WAR BELOW!
With the underwater world on the brink of war, the Avengers go aquatic to save the day, but air-breathers are no longer welcome in the undersea city of Atlantis. And Namor, the Sub-Mariner, lord of the seven seas, has a bold new plan that will change the balance of power on Earth forever. (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) David Marquez
Smurfs Take> Namors back?! And he’s younger? There is one of the most under used and miss understood characters in the Marvel U it’s Namor. First he’s part of the FF, then he’s and X-Men while he is playing with the Avengers. I have always wanted to see something great out of this character maybe this will be my chance. The Avengers book so far has been awesome and is running a very close race for #1 team book for me.

Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay A legend returns, we go cosmic, and visit Earths not so different from our own. Here are Smurfs High Fives for the first week of October; nothing too scary yet but don’t overlook some of the titles landing this week from Image.

Magneto black #1X-Men Black Magneto #1> MAGNETO IS BACK! 
…and so is Chris Claremont! For years, Magneto has done everything he can to achieve his goals for mutant domination. But now Magneto has declared that enough is enough. So what revolutionary plan does Magneto have that will change the face of mutantkind? And will anyone be able to stop him? Will anyone want to? PLUS: Includes Part 1 of X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE the back up story by Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler, and Geraldo Borge! (S) Chris Claremont (A) Dalibor Talajic (CA) J. Scott Campbell

Smurfs Take> If I can’t have Thanos then Magneto is a solid second choice. It’s hard to argue with his point of view and maybe that’s what makes him such an awesome character. Or the fact that he is one of the strongest mutants on the planet. To have Chris back and heading up this book is exciting, most of my favorite Magneto stories are by him and can’t wait to see where he takes us now.

wonderwoman E2Wonder Woman Earth One HC Vol 2> For years, Diana of Paradise Island yearned to leave the only home she knew behind for adventures that laid beyond its shores. Now, after a fateful meeting with Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, the Amazon Warrior finds herself in Man’s World. And she is ready for anything that it may throw at her.
But is the world ready for Wonder Woman? An American government, fraught with dissension and conflicts foreign to Diana, has deemed her a danger to society. How will Wonder Woman carry out her mission of peace and love in a world that can’t get out of its own way? That is, unless there are more insidious forces at play…
Don’t miss the second volume in the WONDER WOMAN: EARTH ONE original graphic novel series! (S) Grant Morrison (A/CA) Yanick Paquette

Smurfs Take> The whole Earth One platform has been a homerun for me. I think the way they have explored all of the different characters and expanded on them has been fresh but still holding true to the foundation of the character. In fact this is what I think the DC should base its films off of; great stories with heart.

cosmic ghostrider #4Cosmic Ghost Rider #4> The Rider is determined to save the universe by ridding it of the greatest threat that ever existed…and that’s why he’s kidnapped Thanos to raise him right! How’s that gonna work out? He’s about to learn. (S) Donny Cates (A) Dylan Burnett (CA) Geoff Shaw

Smurfs Take> This continues to be one of the weirdest and most twisted little books of the year for me…and I can’t look away. I never thought this would catch on or be as compelling as its been. Granted, the whole thing could be some form of delusion and the Punisher wakes up in a padded cell at the end.

 

 

 

asgardians galaxy #2Asgardians of the Galaxy #2> ALL DEAD GODS GO TO WAR!
Angela’s ragtag team of Asgardians are hot on Nebula’s trail – but she’s left a grisly gift behind. With the power of the Naglfar Armada at her cybernetic fingertips, Nebula is unleashing hordes of undead gods to ravage the galaxy. And its only defenders are a slightly traitorous Executioner, a half-mortal Valkyrie, a lost Asgardian huntress, a hammer-wielding teenager, a suit of ancient armor and a frog. And if the rest of the team finds out who’s behind the Destroyer’s faceplate, things will go from bad to Ragnarok. Guest-starring Gladiator and the Imperial Guard! (S) Cullen Bunn (A) Matteo Lolli (CA) Dale Keown

 

 

 

shatterstar #1Shatterstar #1> A gladiator, a warrior, a hero…the man called Shatterstar has been many things, but one thing he’s always been is deadly. He’s not a man you want to cross or you’ll learn that fact all too well. Walk back into the darkness with Shatterstar. (S) Tim Seeley (A) Carlos Villa, Gerardo Sandoval (CA) Yasmine Putri

Smurfs Take> I am on the fence with this title. What I hope to see is a story that clears up some of the confusing back story, give me a little action and some Mojo World for good measure. If done right this could be a great doorway to a Mojoverse storyline.

Smurfs High Five

#NewComicsDay #SmurfsTake #5280Geek The last week of September brings some stranger things to Smurfs High Five. There is a lot out there for sure and DC seems to be running the table this week with some great titles Doomsday Clock and Justice League Dark. Don’t overlook Punisher and Extermination on the Marvel side as well, now if you will excuse me I have a store to get to.

heores in crisis #1Heroes in Crisis #1> There’s a new kind of crisis threatening the heroes of the DC Universe, ripped from real-world headlines by C.I.A.-operative-turned-comics-writer Tom King: How does a superhero handle PTSD? Welcome to Sanctuary, an ultra-secret hospital for superheroes who’ve been
traumatized by crime-fighting and cosmic combat. But something goes inexplicably wrong when many patients wind up dead, with two well-known operators as the prime suspects:
Harley Quinn and Booster Gold! It’s up to the DC Trinity of Superman, Wonder Woman and
Batman to investigate-but can they get the job done in the face of overwhelming opposition? (S) Tom King (A/CA) Clay Mann

 

spidergeddon #0Spidergeddon #0> SPIDERGEDDON IS HERE!
The end of all Spiders doesn’t exclude the star of the most anticipated video game of 2018! Marvel’s Spider-Man is out September 7, 2018 exclusively on PlayStation 4. He makes his Marvel Comics debut on September 26! How does he enter the Marvel Universe and what role will he play in the final chapter of SPIDER-VERSE?!  (S) Christos Gage (A/CA) Clayton Crain

Smurfs Take> My frustration with this is the game only being available on Play Station and everyone talking about how good it is. I want to play too! For now I will settle for the story behind the game.

 

stranger things #1Stranger Things 31> The nostalgia igniting hit Netflix original series comes to comic shelves. Follow Will Byers into a dimension of decay and destruction where he must use his wits and resolve to dodge the pursuit of the Demogorgon and escape the Upside Down.
Written by award winning comics veteran Jody Houser (Faith, Orphan Black, Mother Panic)
Based on Will’s unseen journey during season 1 of hit Netflix show Stranger Things. (S) Jody Houser (A) Stefano Martino (CA) Aleksi Briclot

Smurfs Take> At last! The story of what was going on with Will in the Upside Down. My hope is it gives us just enough to keep asking questions but not spoil anything going on in the show. Can’t wait to see what monsters are lurking down there!

justice league odyssey #1Justice League Odyssey #1> Spinning out of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! When a cosmic menace threatens worlds beyond our own in the Ghost Sector, it falls to a new Justice League team to answer the call to battle! Cyborg, Starfire, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz and an out-of-his-element Azrael head to deep space inside a commandeered Brainiac Skull Ship. But as these wildcard teammates try to break through the impenetrable maelstrom imprisoning the desperate collection of planets, they discover something that nothing in the universe could have prepared them for: Darkseid…who says he’s there to help?! (S) Joshua Williamson (A/CA) Stjepan Sejic

Smurfs Take> Oh hey why don’t we do a League in space? Surprise it took them this long to be honest. DC has always done a great job with its space going characters and I have been disappointed they didn’t have more. I think this is a great idea and a perfect way to expand on something DC has been needing to do for some time now

old man logan 48Old Man Logan #48> A GRUDGE MATCH FOR THE AGES!
Logan isn’t the only refugee from a dystopian future loose in the Marvel Universe….THE MAESTRO RETURNS! Gamma vs. Adamantium!  Intellect vs. instinct! It’s “Days of Anger” ROUND TWO! (S) Ed Brisson (A) Ibraim Roberson (CA) Andrea Sorrentino

Smurfs Take> I wanted more when the story ended last time. I loved the Hulks running around and the chaos they caused. But wanted the Banner Logan face off just knowing the back stories for the two characters could make this one of the most epic clashes. I know we have seen this fight many times but never like this, never when they have been this far in life and never with the restriction of keeping a character safe.

Smurfs High Fives

It’s the bad boys of Marvel this week topping the hits and a midnight release to kick it off. Here are Smurfs High Fives  #NewComicsDay #Marvel #Image #Wolverine #SmurfsTake #5280Geek

wolverine #1Return of Wolverine #1> HE’S BACK, BUB. (S) Charles Soule (A/CA) Steve McNiven

Smurfs Take> Did he ever truly leave? His end was….well tough to put into words. Poetic? Peaceful? But he was never far and Old Man Logan was still running around. To be honest there is no greater icon in the Marvel Universe than Wolverine. You can say Cap or Spidey maybe a stretch and say Hulk, but there is no beating the little furball. And now we get the answers to all our questions, the rest of the story. Just how do you come back from a tomb of Adamantium holding an Infinity Stone?

 

 

 

venom #6Venom #6>  After a brief connection to the GOD-HOST, EDDIE and the VENOM symbiote have emerged with brand new powers! A good thing too, as they’ll need every upgrade they can get as they head down a collision course with the primordial symbiote GRENDEL! (S) Donny Cates (A/CA) Ryan Stegman

Smurfs Take> I can’t tell you how surprised I am by this title. I really thought I would have lost interest by now or the story would have gotten to the point that I just couldn’t take it any longer. I was soooo wrong. Maybe they have learned a few things along the way with Agent Venom and time with the Guardians. This has been a solid story and fun character development for Eddie.

 

 

7 to eternity #11Seven to Eternity #11> The Mosak are on Adam Osidis and the Mud King’s trail, led by the best tracker in all of Zhal: Adam’s own daughter. (S) Rick Remender (A/CA) Jerome Opena

Smurfs Take> Massive world building. Complex and strange characters. Still angry about the main character? You bet I am and when you can get that kind of emotional response you must be doing something right.

 

 

 

 

avengers #8Avengers #8> “WORLD TOUR” PART ONE
In the aftermath of their world-shaking battle against the Dark Celestials, the new Avengers team is officially formed, complete with a startling new headquarters at the top of the world. Behold the wonders of Avengers Mountain. But someone who doesn’t seem impressed is Namor, the ferocious lord of Atlantis, whose rage may turn the oceans red with blood! (S) Jason Aaron (A/CA) David Marquez

Smurfs Take> Loved the first story arc, great team. I think Cap just likes being driven around in a car with flaming tires.

 

 

 

amazing spiderman annual #1Amazing Spider-Man annual #1> TIES THAT BIND!
Years ago, Spider-Man came back from an alien world with a fantastic new costume – one he eventually learned was a living alien symbiote looking to bond with him permanently!  But before he rejected the costume that went on to become VENOM, many a night the symbiote would creep onto Peter, and unbeknownst to its host, take them out into the night!
Now, for the first time, see just what the symbiote steered Peter into during these mysterious nighttime excursions! Saladin Ahmed (BLACK BOLT) weaves an ALL-NEW nightmare fairy tale, illustrated by the incomparable Garry Brown, in what is sure to be a dream book for any Spider-Man fan! (S) Saladin Ahmed (A) Garry Brown (CA) Aco

Smurfs Take> I tend to avoid the annuals. Dull stories, silly concepts and just not interested. This however peaked my interest, I love the idea of a new creepy story, it’s been so long. 

Smurfs High Five

A decent week, not too many titles that you feel overloaded or too little that you find yourself looking to pick up something so your stack isn’t so light (or am I the only one that does that). There is lots to choose from and noteworthy titles like Domino, Plasticman, FF, and the return of Iceman should also get a look. Lots for everyone but don’t wait to hit your local shop here is Smurfs High Five.

infinity wars 3Infinity Wars #3> WHO ARE THE INFINITY WARPS?
With Requiem tearing through the Marvel Universe, Loki whispering around its fringes and a new threat looming to devour everything, the very fabric of reality warps around the heroes of Earth… and the only way through winds through infinity itself! (S) Gerry Duggan (A/CA) Mike Deodato

 

 

 

 

 

journey mystery 1Journey into Mystery Birth of Krakoa #1> As World War II draws to a close, Sergeant Fury and his Howling Commandos face a mission unlike any other they’ve ever tackled… and a menace that will haunt them forever! (S) Dennis Hopeless (A) Djibril Morissette-Phan (CA) Greg Smallwood

Smurfs Take> Funny; I was having a conversation the other day about old war comics. I know how difficult a title like this can be because they always want the characters to team up. I miss just a good story with the feel of an old WWII/Sci-Fi mashup. The perfect mix of nostalgia and mystery to pull the reader in, looks like I am about to have my wish.

 

superman #3SuperMan #3> Guest-starring the Justice League! Locked inside the Phantom Zone, the Earth stands poisoned and its heroes lie dying, with no idea how to escape the deadly Kryptonian trap. But an even deadlier threat invades as Rogol Zaar teams with those who have been imprisoned inside the Phantom Zone to use Earth to escape, not caring if they destroy the planet to do it. (S) Brian Michael Bendis (A/CA) Joe Prado, Ivan Reis

Smurfs Take> I am not a Superman fan. There have been some good runs, stories that I have really enjoyed but it is not a title that I look to pick up every month and usually skip past. That has not been the case for this one. So far this has been a great read, Prado’s art has been on point and I am completely entertained. Maybe this book is hitting me at the right time. Maye the perfect union of art and story returning to the basics. What ever it is I’m in.

Vader #21Star Wars Darth Vader #21> “FORTRESS VADER,” PART 3
DARTH VADER returns to the place of his birth as he seeks the path to his destiny. Echoes from the past reach out to him – both from his own, and from the dark history of the SITH. (S) Charles Soule (CA) Elia Bonetti (A/CA) Giuseppe Camuncoli

 

 

 

 

 

CemetaryBeach_01-1Cemetery Beach #1> From the creators of the acclaimed TREES graphic novels, which are currently being adapted for television, comes something completely different. A professional pathfinder, his only ally a disaffected young murderess, breaks out of a torture cell in pursuit of his worst extraction scenario ever: escaping on foot across a sprawling and secret off-world colony established a hundred years ago and filled with generations of lunatics. WARREN ELLIS & JASON HOWARD ignite a high-speed new action serial. (S) Warren Ellis (A) Jason Howard

Smurfs Take> I love Ellis story telling. I am never sure what I am going to get or in store for but I do know at the end I have an emotional response.

#NewComicsDay #Marvel #DC #Image #Comics #SmurfsTake #5280Geek #SmurfsHighFive

Smurfs High Five

Smurf maybe somewhere at Universal Studios right now but he made sure to get in this weeks High Five. It’s a full week would be an understatement. Don’t overlook the Hulk or another Ghost Rider in the Avengers and DC landing strong with some great trade paperbacks.

thanos legacy #1Thanos Legacy #1> “THANOS WINS”…AGAIN?
Rising star Donny Cates returns to the Mad Titan to bring the story bridging the gap between his best-selling “Thanos Wins” and the world-shattering INFINITY WARS! How did Thanos’ journey back from the future lead to the events of INFINITY WARS PRIME? Now it can be told! (S) Donny Cates, Gerry Duggan (A) Cory Smith (CA) Geoff Shaw

Smurfs Take>  After the shocking events of Infinity War Prime I’m eager to get some understanding for sure.

 

 

 

 

asgardians #1Asgardians of the Gakaxy #1> Spinning out of the events of INFINITY WARS comes an epic space opera from DEADPOOL veterans Cullen Bunn and Matteo Lolli!
Angela, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor. The hotheaded Valkyrie – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs. Skurge the Executioner, freshly returned from Hel. Throg, the mightiest frog of thunder. Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero Thunderstrike. And the Destroyer, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown. The events of INFINITY WARS set NEBULA off on a quest to rule the galaxy – wielding an Asgardian weapon even Thor would fear – and it’s up to this team of gods, assassins, frogs and heroes to stop her. (S) Cullen Bunn (A) Matteo Lolli (CA) Dale Keown

Smurfs Take>  Ever since Gaiman got control to Angela I have been in love with the character and excited to see her in a series again. Thunderstrikes son? Well that one I might not have the same level of zeal. A very unique title for sure that I can see being a sleeper hit for most.

justice league #7Justice League #7> It’s wall-to-Source-Wall Justice League action as artist Jim Cheung rejoins writer Scott Snyder! Hawkgirl takes wing against Legion of Doom leader Lex Luthor; John Stewart faces off with old foe Sinestro; the Flash must run down the Still Force-empowered Gorilla Grodd; and Wonder Woman tackles the tag team of Black Manta and Cheetah-underwater, no less! (S) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Mark Morales, Jim Cheung

Smurfs Take> This has been the biggest hit for me from DC for a while now. A fresh story that Snyder looks to be enjoy writing as I do reading. With Hawkgirl a spotlight for this issue doubly so. I miss her having her own series and love her return to the team.

 

 

BlackScience_38-1Black Science #38> END OF STORY ARC “LATER THAN YOU THINK,” Conclusion Grant and Sara McKay stand at the center of the Onion, finding not heaven or hell, damnation or redemption, but a truth far grander and stranger than even the Dimensionauts could ever have imagined. (S) Rick Remender (A) Matteo Scalera, Moreno Dinisio

 

 

 

 

 

 

cosmic ghost rider #3Cosmic Ghost Rider #3> COSMIC GHOST RIDER VS. THE FUTURE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FOR THE FATE OF THE UNIVERSE! ‘NUFF SAID!  (S) Donny Cates (A) Dylan Burnett (CA) Geoff Shaw

Smurfs Take> This is a crazy ass book!  

#NewComicsDay #Marvel #DC #Image #Thanos #JL #Smurfstake #comics #5280Geek

Smurfs High Five

As Smurf gets to Dragon Con he want to make sure you had something to read while he was away. It’s the week of annuals and Trade Paperbacks giving us all a break from the major stories. Here are Surfs High Fives

 

venam #1Web of Venom Ve Nam #1> SPINNING OUT OF THE PAGES OF VENOM!
As the United States of America struggled through the Vietnam War, Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. needed a secret weapon – and when an ancient creature was discovered at an archaeological dig site, he was sure he’d found it. In reality, the discovery was an ancestor of the Klyntar symbiotes…and would become a waking nightmare for a platoon of American soldiers! (S) Donny Cates (A) Juanan Ramirez (CA) Ryan Stegman

Smurfs Take> I loved the Nam series by Marvel back in the day. Now add Furry and Venom? This could be epic. Since they brought Eddie back to the pages of Venom it has been some impressive stories, and I had my doubts. But so far have not been disappointed and I think this will be just as intriguing.

 

Wolverine Dead Ends #1Hunt for Wolverine Dead Ends #1> THE HUNT IS OVER.
The hunt for Wolverine is over… Now the time has come to put the pieces together and see what was learned. Kitty Pryde, Daredevil, Tony Stark and Sabretooth may have found what they were looking for…but it wasn’t what they expected. Where has Wolverine been? What has he been doing? (S) Charles Soule (A) Ramon Rosanas (CA) Marco Checchetto

Smurfs Take> I know this has been dragged out, and I only hope it has so they can put together a decent story. Am I curious? You bet, there couldn’t be a more pressing question in my mind. Everything seemed rather final and had accepted Old Man Logan as our Wolverine going forward. Bu that is a story for another day. This one here could be one of the best stand out stories for the little Canadian.

daredevil Annual #1Daredevil Annual #1> Misty, meet the Devil!
You know Daredevil as the Man Without Fear, the protector of Hell’s Kitchen. But once upon a time, Daredevil was just the newest super-suit on the block – and NYPD Detective Mercedes “Misty” Knight was just a cop on the job. So when she places Daredevil at the scene of a crime, sparks will fly – and not the good kind. Award-winning crime writer Erica Schultz teams with fan-favorite artist Marcio Takara to bring you a story of street-level heroism in the early days of the Marvel Universe! (S) Erica Schultz (A) Marcio Takara (CA) Shane Davis

Smurfs Take> I love the idea of this story. I miss the old days of Daredevil street vigilante.

 

 

 

Extermination #2Extermination #2> Cyclops. Iceman. Angel. Beast. Marvel Girl. The original team of teen mutants brought together by Professor Charles Xavier many years ago have been shunted through time to find a world they barely recognize but were determined to help. Now, finding themselves targeted for death, the future of mutantkind lies squarely in the hands of its past. Writer Ed Brisson (OLD MAN LOGAN, CABLE) and artist Pepe Larraz (UNCANNY AVENGERS, AVENGERS: NO SURRENDER) answer the biggest question of all: can the fate of the X-Men be changed? (S) Ed Brisson (A) Pepe Larraz (CA) Mark Brooks

Smurfs Take> The first issue was good, I am excited to see where they take it but worried at the same point it could take a drastic left.

 

nightwing Ann #1Nightwing Annual #1> The smart city overhaul of Blüdhaven was just the beginning-a single battle in a larger cyberwar that Nightwing is only starting to understand. But now the story of the Dark Web organization begins to expand as Grayson travels to Gotham City and partners up with Vicki Vale. We live in an era of fake news, alternative facts, disinformation. The gatekeepers of truth can’t be trusted anymore, and sometimes elections, businesses and even lives are at stake. Nightwing faces off against the first of three lieutenants in the army of the Dark Web: Vire, the psychic embodiment of malware who can unearth your darkest secrets. (S) Ben Percy (A/CA) Otto Schimdt
