Did You Ignore 2016’s Summer Events?

SUMMER-OF-4001-AD_POSTER_FINALThere are three publishers that are currently telling, or have told, an event story this year; Valiant, Marvel, and DC.

Valiant’s 4001 A.D. was absolutely fantastic. It may not be the best miniseries Valiant have published this year (Valiant‘s Divinity is head and shoulders above everything else right now from any publisher), 4001 A.D. was still bloody good. Of the tie-in comics released  about half have had relatively little to do with the main story, instead focusing a story that takes place on the periphery of the event – whether in the past or present – which has actually had the effect of enabling the tie-ins to be read independently of the overall arc, something that seems to be more and more infrequent with tie-in comics these days.

Marvel‘s Civil War II  is something that personally I have avoided because over the last five or so years I’ve become tired of the events from the Big Two, our fearless leader Brett has said that 4001 A.D. is running circles around yet another Marvel  story where it’s heroes are fighting each other. Graphic MAR169027 STL014758 CIVIL WAR II #1 CHO B&W VARPolicy’s review of the third issue was less than glowing, saying that “it has failed at any social commentary that it has attempted.” I’d love to say I’m surprised by that… but I’m honestly not. It has been a long time since I cared about a Marvel event, andCivil War II has done nothing to change that.

Conversely, over at DC something unexpectedly strange is happening. Rebirth, their line wide reboot, is actually a resounding success! How DC have been able to turn something that so many comic book fans were tired of into possibly the best line wide reboot/relaunch since Valiant returned to comics in 2005. DC have done the nigh unthinkable by not building their reboot around another miniseries; Rebirth was one 80 page comic that cost a whopping $2.99 (for a first print run – subsequent editions have doubled in cover price), followed by a series of character specific Rebirth specials that were utterly optional, albeit suggested if you intended to read that character’s series. But Rebirth isn’t really a summer event, is it?

DC-Universe-Rebirth-1-1-600x923By not having a traditional summer event, per se, DC  have had the most critically successful summer from either of the Big Two in a long, long time. But comparing Rebirth to either Civil War II or 4001 A.D.  is like comparing chalk and cheese. When DC  decided to have another reboot (or was it a de-boot?) instead of following the pattern of the past decade of miniseries event story followed by negligible change, when DC decided to erase the controversial New 52 reboot from 2011, rather than use another Flashpoint style storyline explaining how and why it would happen, DC just bloody did it. No need for fans to buy another six issues telling us how the Flash would change history that we could just read about online and get the gist of the story, instead DC published an 80 page single issue for $3 – and that was it. With one issue, the publisher changed everything.

One. Fucking. Issue.

They didn’t faff about wasting time and money telling an irrelevant story about how and/or why their comic book line would change (or not change as has often been the result of Marvel‘s big summer events) that many readers would invariably ignore only to jump on with the newest batch of number one issues that would come out long after the story to reboot the universe has started. By rebooting everything (or un-rebooting everything, depending on the side of the fence you stand) with one 80 page issue DC have shown Marvel just how a line wide reboot should be done.

How successful Rebirth will be for the publisher, as the old saying goes, only time will tell, but it’s off to a surprising start with almost all the series being published right now being both of a high quality, and most importantly, being accessible to new readers – despite obvious fears to the contrary with the continuity returning to the pre-New 52 era in the publisher’s history.

If you want to read an event story that’s wiping the floor with anything either of the Big Two have put out in recent years, read 4001 A.D.. The page composition, artwork, and the comics that tie-in with the main miniseries, are superb, but it’s the potential consequences that the series holds in store for the future that really has me excited, especially when you look at some of the tie-in comics that have been released in conjunction with the event – specifically the War Mother and Bloodshot issues – Valiant‘s future is looking incredibly bright right now.

Marvel, however, much like they did with Secret Wars  last year have delayed Civil War II and green-lit an 8th issue. While the reason for the delay is a very good one (the book’s artist became a father), I have to wonder how it will impact the comics that were scheduled to be released after the story, and whether they’ll spoil the final events of Civil War II or not. Whether Marvel will have any lasting change after the end of Civil War II is honestly doubtful – although I’m more than happy to be proven wrong, and to be reminded why I used to love Marvel comics so much ten, fifteen years ago. But my inner cynic doesn’t expect that to happen anytime soon.

Until it does, you’ll see a lot more Valiant and DC  in my pull list.

Review: 4001 A.D. #4

4001_004_COVER-D_TANThe ultimate battle is here as Rai and Father clash among the stars for the final fate of the future…and Earth along with it! As New Japan’s despotic ruler and its former protector enter their final showdown, will the orbiting satellite nation finally fall back to Earth? As the war for 4001 A.D. claims lives on both sides, who will live to greet the brave new world that lies ahead? And what will become of Rai, of Father, and civilization itself? The Valiant Universe of 4001 A.D. is forever changed right here as forces new and old prepare to rise from the ashes of New Japan!

First thing’s first – the final issue of a miniseries isn’t the place to start reading it, so expect some pretty minor spoilers for the previous issues from here on out. If you haven’t read the series, and you’re half curious then go and read it. It’s a good story with a brilliant ending and some of the best looking art that you’re likely to see in a comic this week.

That said, on with the rest of the review. I’ll try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but I’m making no promises.

The italicized text above is directly from a preview of the comic; usually, when a publisher says that nothing will be the same after a story, you’d be forgiven for thinking that they’re exaggerating the finale. That they’re building something that they can’t deliver – but here’s the thing” 4001 A.D. will change the face of the future of the Valiant universe. That’s not a needlessly hyperbolic statement,  it’s simply Valiant actually following through on what they promised us when they started teasing 4001 A.D. so many months ago. Since those teasers were released, the publisher has delivered tie-in comics that range from worth reading to frankly amazing, and a four-issue story that’s the culmination of the seeds sown in Rai over the past couple of years. 4001 A.D. has been a highly enjoyable event, but Matt Kindt and Clayton Crane have saved the best issue for last.

It’s not often that a miniseries billed as a Summer Event has an ending that doesn’t leave readers on a cliffhanger, but that’s exactly what we get here. Yes, there are seeds planted for the future of the Valiant Universe of 4001 A.D., but there’s nothing that leaves you feeling cheated that the series is over.

The biggest issue with the series was how heavily it relied on previous happenings within Rai – indeed, had Valiant turned  4001 A.D. into a five or six issue series by publishing Rai #11 and #12 as earlier issues in the series, then I feel it would have been that much stronger for readers who hadn’t been following Rai at all. Ultimately, however, that’s a fairly minor niggle when compared to how much I’ve been enjoying the story over the past four months.

Between Divinity II and this series, Matt Kindt has written some of the best comics I’ve read all summer, and his conclusion to 4001 A.D. solidifies the story as one of my favourite event style stories I’ve read in a long time.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Paybacks #2Wednesdays 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.

Alex

Top Pick: The Paybacks #2 (Heavy Metal) – If you read nothing else this week, read The Paybacks. It’s a brilliantly written series that should be on your pull list.

4001 A.D. #4 (Valiant) – Valiant’s summer event comes to a close with this issue, and having already read it, it’s a very satisfying conclusion. Every bit as good as I wanted it to be.

Bloodshot Reborn #16 (Valiant) – This is one of the best-looking comics around right now, and is worth reading just for the art. Fortunately, Jeff Lemire’s Groundhog Days meets Survivor story is violently captivating.

Howard The Duck #10 (Marvel)  – It’s a shame this series is coming to an end, and while I’m not sure when that’ll happen exactly, I’m going to enjoy each issue we get until the series is no more. Howard the Duck has been a brilliant read each month partly because of Chip Zdarsky’s jab at almost everybody, and partly because of the way the comic pokes fun at itself.

Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens #2 (Dark Horse) – A concept that’s as jaw dropping as having peanut butter on a hamburger – and just as delicious. No, don’t eat the comic. Read the comic, eat the peanut butter burger, love both.

 

Jason

Top Pick: Art Ops #11 (Vertigo) – Guest artist Rob Davis pits the Art Ops team against a centuries old monster, from a legendary artist rumoured to have painted deaths very essence into a painting in “The Boy Who Painted Death”.

My interest in Vertigo’s Art Ops waned for a few issues when Mike Allred’s art was restricted to him contributing covers, and this month’s inclusion of Warhol’s Silver Clouds means two of my favourite pop artists in one. This might not be a problem for everyone, but I’m a sucker for Allred’s insane pop art style so the change was slightly jarring at first. Even with Brundage taking over full-time art duties, bringing a much rougher hewn style to the page, Art Ops continues to be inventive both in its storytelling and visuals to bring us a true sleeper hit.

Howard The Duck #10 (Marvel) – The penultimate issue before we have to say goodbye again to the avian detective and Zdarksy’s hilarious run before he heads off to more cosmic affairs with Star Lord later this year. Last issue saw Howard deep in full meta commentary territory, with ratings chaser Mojo addressing his sporadic appearances in the Marvel Universe over the years. Issue ten promises the reveal of the mastermind behind the ducks most recent series of misadventures. A series that’s continued to be both hilarious and subversive, so let’s hope we aren’t waiting as long for another writer to realise Howard’s potential.

All-New Wolverine Annual #1 (Marvel) – In the wake of Logan’s death  readers saw Laura Kinney, formerly X-23 taking on the mantle of Wolverine, seeking out clones of herself and aiming to help them whenever possible. An exciting series from the start, Marvel have cemented her as the new Wolverine by embedding her deep into the post Secret Wars landscape with Laura joined by a number of allies this year from Doctor Strange, The Wasp and even Old Man Logan as she unravels the mystery behind her “sisters”. The first Wolverine Annual is no exception, with fan favourite Spider-Gwen swinging in for an all new story with the character find of the year, Jonathan: Actual Wolverine.

 

Anthony

Tokyo Ghost #10 (Image Comics) – It’s bittersweet that this will be the final issue of Tokyo Ghost for the foreseeable future. This series has done a great job at tackling and questioning a lot of present day problems, even with the futuristic setting. The creative team have been showing us a very terrifying and perhaps more overtly technologically hypnotized society that still parallels in many ways to the present day. The drama is greatly balanced with comedic moments and a truly emotional relationship between Debbie and Led.

Saga #37 (Image Comics)Saga is back! The gorgeous wraparound cover by Fiona Staples just elevates the hype for this arc in what sounds like will be an even more escalated situation after Hazel was finally reunited with her parents.

Afterlife with Archie #10 (Archie Comics/Archie Horror) – It’s always a good week when there is a new issue of Afterlife with Archie. Afterlife appeals to both fans and non-fans of Archie with its more dramatic, darker tone that is filled with surprises each and every issue. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been scripting some great character pieces that heighten the relationships between each of the teens and adults of Riverdale unlike ever before. It’s also pretty hard to say no to Francesco Francavilla’s art that is just perfect in the horror setting. This issue looks to focus on the origin story of Josie and Pussycats.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Secret Coders Vol. 2: Paths & Portals (First Second) – Gene Luen Yang and Mike Holmes’ graphic novel series that teaches people to code while being entertained returns! The second volume is just as fantastic as the first, upping the mystery but more importantly it also includes multiple instances where it teaches you to code. Yes, even my 30 something self learned some skills! A perfect blend of entertainment and education.

Rough Riders #5 (Aftershock Comics) – The series that blends history and weirdness continues in its fun ways and I can’t wait. The comic is really entertaining and this issue has Teddy Roosevelt fighting the infamous Battle of San Juan Hill, but there’s also Thomas Edison, Annie Oakley, Harry Houdini, and Jack Johnson, all on their secret mission.

The Paybacks #2 (Heavy Metal Comics) – One of my favorite comics of the last year. The first volume was hillarious and this second volume looks to be just as good. This is superhero comedy at its best.

Skip to the End #1 (Heavy Metal Comics) – Jonny Wells desperately wants to relive his grunge rock royalty past. As bassist of Samsara, he craved the Rock’n’Roll lifestyle that eventually claimed the life of the band’s visionary lead singer and his best friend. Now a VH1 cautionary tale of drug addiction and self-loathing, Wells trades his smack for an old battered guitar, and discovers that returning to his former glory days are only a few chords away. Literally.

Tomboy #7 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This series is under the radar unfortunately and people need to find out about it! It’s a mix of superhero/manga/Japanese horror with a teenage girl at the center of it all as a vigilante out for revenge to kill the people who killed her friend.

4001 A.D. #4 – Kindt & Crain Lead the Epic Finale to Valiant’s Summer Blockbuster in August!

This August, Valiant’s most ambitious event yet goes out in a blaze of fury and steel…and the heroes of the 41st century take the first step toward a monumental new era!

Valiant has released an advance preview of 4001 A.D. #4 (of 4) – the white-hot finale to the year’s most acclaimed crossover event from New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt and superstar artist Clayton Crain! On August 31st, Rai’s tech-augmented insurgency against Father and the forces of New Japan ends in a world-shaking climax that will recast the fate of Earth, humanity, and the new era that lies ahead! As the tyrannical ruler of New Japan deploys his final gambit to save his despotic regime, the future itself will be rewritten in a final battle that will collide father against son for a cosmic showdown two millennia in the making…

Reunion!

The war against Father turns in favor of the 41st century’s revolutionary heroes as Rai finds his long-lost friends aboard the monstrosity that has become New Japan.

New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY) and superstar artist Clayton Crain (RAI) continue the summer’s blockbuster event in the year 4001 A.D.!

Alex

Top Pick: Divinity II #4 (Valiant) – The first Divinity miniseries didn’t really click for me – oh, I understood why it was held in such high regard, but the series never resonated with me as much as it does with other people (don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it). I probably need to read it again, because Divinity II  can apparently do no wrong in my eyes. The final issue of the four issue miniseries is bitter sweet, because this has been so good I just don’t want it to end.

4001 A.D. #3 (Valiant) – Hands down the best event this summer. I can’t wait to read this.

Action Comics #960 (DC Comics) – There’s something about the frenetic energy of this comic that has just clicked with me, and for the first time in twenty years I am beyond excited at the thought of a Superman comic.

Howard The Duck # 9 (Marvel) – An underappreciated gem, this series is one of the most effortlessly entertaining comics on the racks today.

X-O Manowar #47 (Valiant) – Valiant’s longest running series is coming to a close with issue #50, and for the duration of this arc the company are giving away free art prints (or original artwork if you’re lucky) with each issue. Which is great value on its own, but the story itself has also been pretty great, making the art print a happy bonus.

 

Anthony

Top Pick: Divinity II #4 (Valiant) –  The end is unfortunately here (at least before the upcoming December release of Divinity III!). Divinity II, just as its predecessor series did, has been building towards a clash of titans that weighs heavily between two very different ideals and moralities. Myshka and Abram are set to face off to decide the fate of the world in which reality would alter into a Stalinverse or set back onto its rightful course.

East of West #28 (Image Comics) – Lines are being divided, alliances are being formed and death lurks around every corner. After the chaotic, violent end of last issue, multiple characters’ motives and respective ‘cards’ have been revealed. It will be very interesting to see where this series goes from now as it has reached a pinnacle (at least as of right now) to its multiple layered conflicts.

Black Panther #4 (Marvel) – Ta-Nehisi Coates has been crafting a rich script that covers a wide spectrum of folklorish tales, environments both real and metaphysical within Wakanda and Africa as a whole, as well as presenting a real understanding to both T’Challa’s position and Tenzi and The People. Brian Stelfreeze’s illustrations with Laura Martin’s colours have been providing a very imaginative and detailed look that blends the backdrop clash of technology and nature. The conflict that has been building up is about to come to a head as this first arc concludes.

Indoctrination #2 (Z2 Comics) – Like the dirty, demonic brainchild of True Detective and its H.P. Lovecraftian imagery, Michael Moreci, Matt Battaglia, and Jim Campbell present a story that fuses FBI agents, the American South and a serial killer to question the power of ideology. Moreci looks to continue his moulding of politics with violence and the horrific with the dim, atmospheric images of Roche Limit fellow creator Matt Battaglia.

 

Paul

Top Pick: Mighty Thor #9 (Marvel) – This book has been consistently good from the get go.  The art is great and the stories have been exciting and showing a lot of character from Thor, both as Jane and the Goddess of Thunder.  But I am very interested in this new development of a secret organization of corporations pulling strings from the shadows.  Curious to see what their purpose/end game is.  Pick this one up, you won’t be disappointed.

Civil War II #4 (Marvel) – To be honest, I’ve felt this new civil war has just been lukewarm.  Sure, there have been a few casualties (a couple surprising ones) and sides are being chosen, but for me at least it feels like ‘yeah ok, we’ve done this’.  The last issue was a surprise, and the consequences of one characters actions will be decided.  It’s an ok read, and it does have it’s moments but I am hoping things ramp heading to the conclusion.

Civil War II Choosing Sides #3 (Marvel) – I have been enjoying this Civil War II tie in.  It’s a book of three shorter stories focusing on 3 characters and their place/thoughts/opinions in this new civil war.  It’s nice to see things from characters not directly tied to it in the main books and see how this fallout will affect the MU as a whole.

Red Hood and the Outlaws: Rebirth #1 (DC Comics) – I read this title for a time when the new 52 came to be, with Jason Todd, Arsenal and Starfire teamed up and facing down mystical and alien threats.  Now we have Red Hood who stumbles into a team up with Artemis (the Amazon, not the Young Justice character) and apparently Bizzaro; yup, sounds strange to me too, but I have to say I am curious to see what this trio is going to do together.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Divinity II #4 (Valiant) – This miniseries just like the previous volume has been absolutely fantastic. Every issue delivers and the resolution of how two god-like beings end their battle makes sense and is satisfying. I can’t wait for the third volume later this year and this issue leaves some clues that has me even more excited.

4001 AD #3 (Valiant) – Epic is how I feel about this one. This has been a fantastic event as Valiant keeps delivering.

Batgirl #1 (DC Comics) – Barbara hits the road and the concept of that sounds WAY too interesting to not check out. Something different is good.

Captain Kid #1 (Aftershock Comics) – Mark Waid has a new superhero comic and the premise sounds interesting enough. Waid does some excellent comics, especially of the superhero genre, so a new one has me at least interested in seeing what the first issue is like.

Tomboy #6 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – If you’re not reading this series, you’re missing out. It’s a dark and brutal vengeance story featuring a teenage girl. Charles Bronson in the form of a tween.
