THE FUTURE ENDS HERE!

• Run by Doctor Doom and bereft of heroes by design, 2099 is a rough place.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #100

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!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Annihilation Scourge: Beta Ray Bill #1/Annihilation Scourge: Silver Surfer #1 (Marvel) – The return of Marvel’s cosmic has been entertaining so far and though the creative team has been different from the previous Annhilation events, it feels like a solid follow up.

The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Frank Miller’s latest chapter in his take on Batman.

Far Sector #2 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – The first issue introduced us to a new Green Lantern and a brand new world. It was an amazing opening with great writing and fantastic art. We’re excited to see where it goes.

Doom 2099 #1/Spider-Man 2099 #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s return to the world of 2099 has been weird but we’re holding in hoping it all becomes clearer.

Dying is Easy #1 (IDW Publishing) – A new series from Joe Hill and Martin Simmonds follows a disgraced former cop turned stand-up comic turned felon? We’re intrigued.

The Goon #7 (Albatross Funnybooks) – One of the most fun series out there right now.

Rai #2 (Valiant) – One of the best new series of the years. It’s not too late to get in on this which focuses on the future of the Valiant universe.

The Red Mother #1 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! has been rocking the new series with each seeing numerous sell-outs. We’re in for this new horror series.

Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality #1 (Marvel) – The first volume surprisingly worked as it explored a new chapter during Spider-Man’s blacksuit days. We’re hoping for more of the same fun.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #100 (IDW Publishing) – Hitting such a huge number, we’re excited to see what IDW has in store.

Undiscovered Country #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was fantastic as a world contingent entered a United States that has been cut off from the world for decades. The reveal was completely unexpected and promises a wild ride.

• Spider-Man. Doctor Doom. ‘Nuff said?
• NO WAY! The Chameleon has insane plans that have put all of NYC (and the very future of the universe!) in danger, and only Spider-Man can save the day.
• All he has to do is convince Doctor Doom to help him. Uh-oh.

Review: Fantastic Four 2099

Fantastic Four 2099

Fantastic Four 2099 is an interesting comic. While part of the “2099” event, it doesn’t feel like part of any greater story. In a way the issue has more in common with The Twilight Zone than Marvel‘s 2099. 2099 Alpha teased a return to the world of 2099 celebrating 80 years of Marvel by looking 80 years in the future. While it seems like there’s some greater picture, the debut Alpha comic also was a bit disjointed feeling more like a series of teasers. This first full one-shot might have 2099 in the title but the comic itself is one you can pick up and just enjoy.

Written by Karla Pacheco the comic is an interesting one. The plot features H.E.R.B.I.E. on a mission to bring the Fantastic Four back together. From there, it’s a team origin of sorts.

While it’s interesting, it’s not until the end where the comic kicks you in the gut. It’s an unexpected ending that feels like it comes out of leftfield creating one hell of a read. It’s a story that’s worth the twist ending.

The art by Steven Cummings is decent. It evokes the 90s 2099 line a bit. Along with color by Chris Sotomayor and lettering by Travis Lanham, the visuals give a hint of the future without going over the top. The character designs are interesting but it’s H.E.R.B.I.E. that really stands out when it comes to characters and their depictions.

Fantastic Four 2099 is an interesting comic. The majority of it feels rather standard as far as a team origin. It’s rather mundane in that regard. Where it stands out is that ending which plays so well against the rest of the issue.
