Review: Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1

GQv201-cvrAOnce upon a time, a troupe of has-been actors that starred on an old sci-fi show were enlisted by an alien race to save them from an intergalactic tyrant. Despite being way out of their depth, the cast somehow managed to save the aliens and stay alive… but their actions in outer space may have had dire consequences for another world. Join us this January as the cast of Galaxy Quest returns for another bombastic journey into space!

Galaxy Quest is a cult film, spoofing Star Trek in a highly entertaining way. It both makes fun of, and shows love for the films it spins out of. It’s a movie I wish there was a sequel to. A comic is about as good as I’m getting.

The first issue takes on a plot point for the film, spinning it out in a smart way. It’s actually something I’ve wondered about, and nice to see it being taken on.

All the characters are back, and their personalities are on full display. That clash of ego was one of the fun things about the movie, and its shown off here, but not to the same extent. Overall, the story is fun and entertaining, though not as quite as fun as the film.

The issue with the comic is the art. The male characters are indistinguishable. I seriously can’t tell one person from the other, and have to rely on dialogue to figure out who is who. Its frustrating, and I can understand why the publisher probably can’t use the likeness of the actors who portrayed these characters in the film, but generic men that look like they were cloned is not the way to go.

The comic is hit and miss. The story is fun, and a nice follow up to the movie, but the character design is just a fail. The art though is fine, it’s just the male characters that are the issue. Overall, this is probably best for hardcore Questers.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

March Book Two cover (300dpi)Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday. Lots of comics from IDW Publishing this made our lists!

Brett

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Mixing politics with horror? Yes please! I’ve looked forward to this series that sees a detective head to Iraq to solve some murders.

The Kitchen #3 (Vertigo) – Under the radar, and awesome. The series is a 70s set crime series featuring the wives of the the mobsters.

March Book 2 (Top Shelf Productions) – My most anticipated graphic novel (and comic) of 2015 is out this week, and it’s so appropriate as it was MLK day yesterday. Expect this one to win awards at the end of the year.

Millennium #1 (IDW Publishing) – The X-Files spin-off gets its own comic series. It was an underrated television series, and I expect an awesome comic adaptation.

Zombies vs Robots #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s popular book series comes to comics in an ongoing series. It’s zombies fighting robots people!

Edward

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A noirish detective story, but set in the aftermath of the Iraq War.  Someone or something is killing people in a gruesome fashion on the oil fields, but a cover-up threatens the investigators from getting to the truth.  The story bills itself as Zero Dark Thirty meets The Thing and seems to be living up to it.

Dark Horse Presents #6 (Dark Horse) – This series flies a little below the radar, but channels the same creative concepts behind a lot of earlier comics (DC’s Showcase from the 1960s.)  Some of the stories are doomed to fail, but some are destined for the Dark Horse universe.  This issue has both sci-fi time travel and some undead fighting heroes.

Zombies vs. Robots #1 (IDW Publishing) – The launch of the first ongoing series which proved that the medium of comics is not tired of zombies yet, this time as the small handful of human survivors has to deal with competing post apocalypse scenarios.  And speaking of zombies…

Wonder Woman #38 (DC Comics) – It it only two issues into their run, but the Finches have been very divisive so far, both in terms of their comments to the direction of the character and in the output of the comics. Will Wonder Woman’s return to mainstream DC find firm ground or crash and burn?

Zombie Tramp #6 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – It is still hard to know what to make of this series, but it is usually entertaining even if you owe your brain an apology in the end.

Evan

Holy F*ck #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This is a hilarious low-brow title with very well delivered religious satire. I can completely get behind this foul-mouthed stoner who’s-bisexual messiah.

The Valiant #2 (Valiant) – The art in this in issue is beautifully executed. I normally don’t like when I can’t tell which author was writing for each page but the art provided a smooth transition page to page.

George

Amazing Spider-Man #13 (Marvel Comics) – The latest story arc for Spidey is coming to a close and it’s the best one yet by Dan Slott.

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Comics) – Military horror mystery by Moreci, Daniel and Lorimer set in the Middle East. The story combines a dishonorably discharged military investigator with a mythic evil set in an already fragile locale. The story sounds amazing and the art looks fantastic.

Powers #1 (Marvel Comics/Icon) – Since the announcement of the TV Show this has been a much anticipated comic. Plus, Brian Michael Bendis is one of the best story-tellers out there. Powers #1 is a perfect jumping-on point for anyone interested n this Eisner Award winning tale.

Reyn #1 (Image Comics) – Kel Symons is building a fantasy world that sounds as amazing as the art by Nathan Stockman. If you’re looking for a new Comic Book to add to your pull list this is definitely one you should add and keep up with.

Rumble #2 (Image Comics) – If you haven’t already picked up, and read, Rumble #1 then do so immediately. This story has such a compelling plot that I couldn’t put it down before I read it and re-read it over and over again. We have yet to learn much of the backstory for the protagonist, but that’s a good thing.

Jesse

Borderlands: Fall of Fyrestone #6 & Borderlands TP Vol. 2 Fall of Fyrestone (IDW Publishing) – Borderlands is among my favorite games out there. I would be honored to review their comic line

Cartoon Network Super Secret Crisis War TP Vol. 1 (IDW Publishing) – These cartoons are my childhood. Seeing them come together is always good entertainment for me.

Dungeons & Dragons: Legend of Drizzt TP Vol. 1 Homeland (IDW Publishing) – After 15 years of Dungeons and Dragons experience of being both a player and Dungeon Master, DnD and (especially) anything with Drizzt would be among my top options.

Iron Man Epic Collection TP Stark Wars (Marvel) – I’m a huge Iron Man fan and would love to get my hands on some Iron Man comics to review and discuss in a large scale review.

Legendary Star-Lord #8Legendary Star-Lord TP Vol. 1 Face It I Rule, Rocket Raccoon #7 (Marvel) – A huge Marvel fan and a huge fan of the Guardians. I’d love anything from Guardians of the Galaxy, but especially them on their own.

Can You Hide a Secret… In Someone’s Mind?

The thrilling and complex tale of a town that discovers their own terrible reality becomes even more frightening when the Sheriff of Carpenter Cove discovers whose mind he and his neighbors now reside in.

From breakout creators Ryan K. Lindsay and Eric Zawadzki, Headspace delivers twists and turns that will make any fan of suspense squirm!

The series is the latest example of the partnership that brings digital publisher Monkeybrain‘s comics to print through IDW Publishing.headspace

IDW Publishing Comes to Farrago Comics

farrago comicsThe last we had mentioned Farrago Comics was back during San Diego Comic Con, when the digital platform was just starting to stretch its legs. The platform’s model is similar to Pandora/Spotify, that “uniquely supports and favors creators.” Both systems rely heavily on advertising for revenue, but you can pay to upgrade the service. It’s a business model that’s relatively new to the industry and the latest example of the various digital models that have launched in the past year.

Since then, there’s been a bit of a soft launch in a beta phase with the platform focused mostly on Golden Age comics and indie creators and a move from the initial iPad app to also being available on the Android system as well (it says for tablets, but it worked on my phone). While focused on classic and indie books, the app also featured some series from Top Cow, and creator Paul Jenkins.

This past week, the highest profile publisher to date was announced. IDW Publishing will see some of its comics come to the app.
