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!


1.  Danger Club #3 :  What happens when all the adults on your planet go missing and it's up to you to save the world? That's the premise of this great book that never fails to thrill and shock you! Speaking of shocks, there is a HUGE reveal in this book that no one should miss!

2.  Earth 2 #3 :  Controversial? Yes. Outstanding? Even more so! Not only do we get to see Alan Scott become the Green Lantern in this issue, but a all-new, all-different villain enters the fray as well! For get the Green. Forget the Red. Forget the Rot. Fear the Grey!

3.  Before Watchmen: Ozymandias #1 (of 6) : For me, this has been the best of prequel series! We get to see this vile villain from birth to the donning of his costume in this issue, and it is amazing! But what really solidifies it as the best, is Jae Lee's outstanding art!

4.  Avengers Vs. X-Men #7 :  This series has done a complete 180 in the last two issues, making it exciting again! Matt Fraction writes a solid tale and Olivier Coipel's art is top notch! Plus, an Avenger gets set on fire! And it ain't Wolvie, kids!

5.  The Boys #68 :  Garth Ennis' middle finger to super hero comics, is slowly coming to an end -- but it's going out with a BANG! The Boys are finding out that their fearless leader has been doing so very bad things and must be stopped. But how do you stop someone who knows everything about you? Awesome stuff!
