The "DOC's" Top Of The Pile

By: Chris "DOC" Bushley


( A weekly quick pick of the five titles that should reside at the top of your pull list. IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER! )


I do the research, you reap the reward! Before you head out to your favorite shop today, be sure to add these five titles to your list of goodies! Forget that "apple a day" nonsense, this "DOC's" prescription to good health starts with these top five books of the week!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2800:]]1.  Locke and Key: Grindhouse (One-shot):  Joe Hill continually creates one of the best and yet, one of the most underrated books out there! If you haven't picked up this series yet, you are sorely missing out on a completely mesmerizing, hauntingly amazing book! Dive on in, but remember where you left your keys!

2.  Justice League #12:  A truly great story that completely outshines the hype it is getting over the cover. Check out my full review for all the details!   

3.  Uncanny X-Force #30:  The "bad boys" take the child Apocalypse on a road trip to show him who he truly is! Cool tale that makes me want to see a "buddy" film starring Sabretooth and Daken!

4.  Green Lantern Annual #1:  This one will pave the way for the "Rise of the Third Army" arc that will hit all the GL books in the coming months! So, get out there and get 'em if you can! Some retailers ordered low due to the $4.99 tag price, but we don't care about money! Right?

5.  American Vampire #30:  Holy schnikees! What is Pearl doing on that last page? Things are going to change in a big way in A.V. and you can thank Scott Snyder for that! It might not sell 80,000 copies Mr. Liefeld, but it damn well beats anything you've ever done!
