After being hit the fallout from a blast that killed the local superhero, Defender, his dream comes true! He gains super strength and speed and can even fly! He takes over protecting the citizens from thieves, thugs, and fearsome villains in his homemade costume, but he soon finds fighting crime is no easy task. He has to balance fighting evil robots and trigger-happy bank robbers with homework, curfew, and the school bully. Oh, and there’s a super villain who will stop at nothing to steal Smash’s powers. No problem for a 10-year-old. Kids and adults can enjoy this superhero title that’s filled with humor, action, and art that makes it a fun ride for everyone.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Animated Adventures #3 – Teenage Mutant Ninja…Zombies?! Michelangelo has always been on the fun-loving side, and what’s more fun than zombies? But after watching one too many zombie movies, Mikey starts to see the people of NYC starting to act a little mindless. To stop them, Mikey must face his fears, but can he convince his brothers that his seemingly tall tale is real—or will he be forced to face the hordes by himself? IDW brings another popular Nickelodeon show to comic book form that features all new adventures. Like the cable channel, IDW is building up a solid block of titles kids will love and adults can enjoy.
