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.  Daredevil #18:  Continuing the further demise of Matt Murdock and "Foggy" Nelson's friendship, this issue brings pack someone from their past. But can they truly be who they say they are? If it is, ol' DD may be headed for the psych ward!

2.  Justice League #0:  Don't fret JL fans, even though none of them are in this book, we get a great story of Billy Batson and the origin of -- Shazam! Finally, there is no debate as to calling which character Captain Marvel anymore! Plus, is that the Question? Hmm?

3.  Lobster Johnson: Caput Mortuum (One-shot):  After a lackluster one-shot last time round, Mike Mignola more than makes up for it this time! High stakes action and Nazis on blimps? Who doesn't love that?

4.  Red Hood and the Outlaws #0:  We all know the story of how Jason Todd died, but now we get to see his entire origin! From birth until now, Jason's life has been full of tragedy, but what if it all hasn't been by chance? What if someone has been manipulating every moment for their own sinister pleasure? This book is twisted! 

5.  Revival #3:  The "smart" zombie book, this one is completely different than all the others in the genre! Eerie and unnerving, Revival will get you that horror fix without falling into the trappings of dumb jokes and even worse scenarios. I just wish they would stop showing the "little white guy!" Creepy!
