Review: D4VE #1

D4VE01cvrPrimetime TV; mortgages; traffic jams. The robots conquered earth, wiping out all life in the galaxy, but nothing changed. Meet D4VE, the greatest robot war hero, now trapped behind a desk at a soul-sucking day job. Can something, somewhere snap him out of this slump? This is D4VE’s mid-life. Crisis.

Originally released as a digital series by Monkeybrain, D4VE has come to print courtesy of IDW Publishing. Written by Ryan Ferrier, with art by Valentin Ramon, the series speaks to everyone who has a life draining desk job, and dreams of glory and excitement.

The first issue is fantastic hitting all the right notes and is beyond relateable for desk jockeys. Now only do we get to know the main character D4ve pretty well, but we’re also introduced to the world where robots have taken over… and pretty much killed every living thing in the galaxy.

The first issue reminds me of great workplace comedies like Office Space, The Office (both versions), and even a bit of Workaholics. It just nails it, when it comes to working a boring desk job, and the tedious life that often is associated with it. The lack of excitement oozes off the page. The fact this is all done with robots is even more entertaining, creating a world just different enough to be even more entertaining.

Ferrier is complimented by the art of Ramon who takes a gold robotic world, and somehow makes it familiar and not so foreign. It’s a great combination of writer and artist.

For those who missed the series when it first came out, now’s your chance to grab it in print. I guarantee when you’re done, you’ll be downloading all the issues available digitally so that you can “catch up.” It’s that good. That fun. That entertaining.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

D4VE01cvrSUBWednesdays 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.

Brett’s Picks

Top Pick: D4VE #1 (IDW Publishing/Monkeybrain Comics) – The digital comic comes to print, and hopefully more people will take a look and appreciate this series brilliance. It’s definitely a comic that’s been under the radar too long. The series is about a great robot war hero who is now trapped behind a desk at a soul-sucking day job.

The Black Hood #1 (Dark Circle Comics/Archie) – Archie is going dark and gritty with the relaunch of their former Red Circle line, now Dark Circle. The series is the launch of a new(ish) super hero line with some top notch creators behind it all.

Curb Stomp #1 (BOOM! Studios) – An unfortunate title for an otherwise good idea. The comic is basically The Warriors, but with a group of women.

Darth Vader #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic, and Marvel has knocked it out of the park so far with their relaunched Star Wars line of comics.

Fight Like a Girl #4 (Action Lab Entertainment) – The series is under the radar, and that’s too bad, because it’s really good. The comic follows a young girl who is fighting through video game like levels, including boss battles, to save her brother.

Gotham Academy #5 (DC Comics) – DC Comics’ saw a breath of fresh air with this series that focuses on some of the kids of Gotham. It’s a fantastic series that we wish we saw more of in the comic world.

Orphan Black #1 (IDW Publishing) – The popular television series comes to comics! The first issue adapts what’s come instead of adding upon what’s already happen. But, that’s ok! The more clones the better!

Princeless: The Pirate Princess #2 (Action Lab Entertainment) – Two ass-kicking women is good. Even better, three ass-kicking women. The first issue returns to the fun, and socially relevant, that we’ve seen in the previous volumes. A fantastic series for kids and adults alike.

Spider-Gwen #1 (Marvel) – The break out star of Marvel’s recent Spider-Verse storyline gets her own series. It’ll be interesting to see what we get, as well as where the series goes with the upcoming Secret War.

Suiciders #1 (Vertigo) – A new series by Vertigo? Yes please. This one has to deal with a earthquake ravaged Los Angeles which is now its own city where gladiator contests are held for entertainment.

George’s Picks

Top Pick- Batman #39 (DC Comics) This is the penultimate issue of “Endgame”. Part 5 of 6 of one of the best stories out in the market right now and one of the best Batman stories available. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo outdo themselves with each release and its the first book I grab when available. The art matches Snyder’s writing style perfectly and you can’t help but be sucked into the story of Batman and the Joker over and over again. Snyder/Capullo are definitely going full force with this and fans couldn’t be happier.

Amazing Spider-Man #15 (Marvel) Now that Spidey is officially in the Marvel Cinematic Universe it would be a good idea to pick up the current book and catch up. The story line is great so far with #15 starting a new story arc after the incredible event of Spider-Verse ending with #14.

Chew #46 (Image Comics) – This story is coming to end shortly so anyone interested should catch up now. Its one of my favorite books to look forward to with each release and the story gets better with each chapter. You get rewarded for paying attention and the art is some of the coolest out there.

Darth Vader #2 – (Marvel) Issue #1 had me wondering how a book focusing on a villain would work, but then I read Darth Vader #1 and realized how incredible Vader’s journey is going to be. Issue #2 should continue his first amazing story arc as we see Vader go to any lengths to take down anyone that opposes him. His story is as rich as any Jedi’s and you won’t be disappointed with the illustrations of all the elements of the Empire we don’t usually see in a Jedi story.

Thief of Thieves #26 (Image Comics) – The latest story arc starts here so new readers can jump on and have a great new book to add to their list. This book started out as Robert Kirkman’s, which he then passed on to Andy Diggle who has done an exceptional job with the story. AMC is rumored to make this into a TV series so there’s another reason to pick this book up.
