Tails of the Pet Avengers: The Dogs of Summer #1 – The Pet Avengers are back with two short stories in this issue. In the first story, Franklin Richards, son of Sue and Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four, and his time-traveling puppy named Puppy meet the Pet Avengers. And as is usual in a Franklin Richards story, bad things happen. The second story features Captain America, Thor and Iron Man. Marvel has put together a great superhero team with the Pet Avengers, keeping the mix of humor and action balanced just right. If you haven’t checked out the Pet Avengers yet, this is a good place to start, with the short, stand alone stories. Both kids and adults will enjoy this series.
Smurfs #1: Smurfnapper – Papercutz has already announced their Smurf graphic novels, scheduled to come out in August. This issue is a special sampler with a full story to build anticipation for that release. The evil sorcerer Gargamel is trying to create a magic stone. One of the ingredients for it is a Smurf! With the help of his cat Azrael, one is in the pot, ready to go. Papa Smurf and the rest of the village must come up with a plan to rescue their friend and stop Gargamel’s evil plans. This is a good series for your kids, and at $1, it’s not hard to take a chance and see if they will like it.
