World War 2 is raging and the struggle between good and evil is in full force. In Prague, the great Bohemian city is being oppressed by the Nazi occupation and the population lives in terror, while the resistance forces try to organize themselves in the shadows.  It is an almost impossible task.

A crazy hope, which rests on the fragile foundations of an ancient, monstrous legend…

CRUELER THAN DEAD Vol. 1

MONSTERMIND: DEALING WITH ANXIETY & SELF DOUBT

by Alfonso Casas
MSRP: $19.99 · Release Date: September 29, 2021

Alfonso Casas’s MonsterMind is a very personal account of the inner monsters that live inside his head. But who doesn’t have a monster inside them?

Who has never heard that voice inside their head undermining everything they do? You’re not good enough…You just got really lucky…There are people far better and more qualified than you…

In a very honest exercise, Alfonso Casas identifies and introduces his own monsters to his readers: Mr. Past Traumas, Mr. Fear, Mr. Social Anxiety, Mr. Impostor Syndrome, Mr. Sadness, Mr. Doubt…the pessimistic, the insecure, the self-demanding, the monster that keeps you from sleeping while you think of what you could have said back in that conversation two years ago, or that keeps you looking over the punctuation of every text message to figure out the tone lurking beneath the surface. All those monsters make up the bestiary of contemporary society.

But the anxiety generation is expert in more things: in looking inside themselves and their lives, and – why not? – in laughing at their own neuroses as best they can. In the end, if the monsters won’t leave us, we might as well get to know them and laugh at them! Anxiety is another pandemic, but the monsters dwelling inside us are funny, too (especially as drawn by Alfonso Casas).

BONUS:  Includes a discussion guide to help readers further discuss anxiety and find ways to deal with it.

MONSTERMIND: DEALING WITH ANXIETY & SELF DOUBT

TRESE Vol. 3

by Budjette Tan & KaJO Baldisimo
MSRP: $16.99 · Release Date: September 29, 2021

The award-winning supernatural crime thriller by Filipino creators Budjette Tan and KaJO Baldisimo continues. Trese Vol. 3 “Mass Murders” contains 5 stories from the case files of Alexandra Trese

It’s 12 midnight in Metro Manila. Try to remain calm as you walk down the dimly lit streets. If you are suddenly surrounded by a pack of dogs that appear from nowhere – these might be segben tracking down their prey. Avoid the butcher’s shop that’s open at this hour. It might be a front for a gang of vampiric aswang (shape-shifting evil creatures of Filipino folklore).

Yet, there’s an even deadlier threat to the city tonight. An ancient being that thrives on violence and thirsts for blood has found new disciples in modern Manila. Sacrifice has been demanded. Rituals must be executed. When crime takes a turn for the weird, the police call Trese.

TRESE Vol. 3

Review: Space Pirate Captain Harlock #1

Space Pirate Captain Harlock #1

Growing up, there was glimpses of manga and anime but it wasn’t until high school I really paid attention. Even then, my exposure was much of the classics of the time over and over. Space Pirate Captain Harlock isn’t something I remember the specifics of, but I know I’ve seen glimpses of it. Interestingly, it blends together for me with Robotech and Macross, and I couldn’t say why. So, walking into Space Pirate Captain Harlock #1 I recognized the characters and design but have no idea why.

For those not familiar, this comic series is set in the timeline of the original series. Planet Earth is threatened by the Mazon’s who have launched an attack on the planet. Unfortunately, its inhabitants have no idea. Captain Harlock however recognizes something is off and will make it his mission to save the world. A cold spell has hit the Earth and is only the beginning at the attack to come.

With a story by Leiji Matsumoto, Space Pirate Captain Harlock #1 doesn’t a decent job of catching up the readers. It goes through the key points that are needed to understand the characters, the world, and the situation that’s approaching. It does a very good job of that and by the time the comic really got into the story, I felt like I had a good idea of what was going on. For a comic set in the original timeline, it doesn’t leave new readers out. It also does a solid job of transitioning into the main story. In a way, the comic is split with half dedicated to catching up readers and the other getting to the point. Its balance is pretty solid and it does a good job as an introduction.

The art by Jérôme Alquié is fantastic. As I said, I knew the look of the characters. And, as I flipped through the pages my memories came back. I found myself uttering “that looks familiar” more and more. So, as far as picking up on the original designs, the comic clearly does a fantastic job. There’s also some interesting and dynamic page layouts. The comic has a pacing in the art that really fits the story and characters. It’s beautiful to look at and looks like the anime come to the page without falling into too many manga tropes.

Space Pirate Captain Harlock #1 is a good start. It feels more like a Free Comic Book Day prelude in a way with its split focus but it has me wanting to read the next issue. So, in that way, it’s a success. I can’t say how well it continues the original material but visually it feels like it nails the look. As someone who only remembers the property in hazy memories, this debut has me wanting to go back and watch the original source material while I wait for the second issue.

Story: Leiji Matsumoto Art: Jérôme Alquié
Story: 7.25 Art: 9.0 Overall: 7.5 Recommendation: Read

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Static: Season One #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) 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 week.

Black Friday #3 (Scout Comics) – This has been a fantastic horror series that plays with the horror that is Black Friday at big box retail stores.

BRZRKR #3 (BOOM! Studios) – The high-profile series has been interesting so far and this issue promises to dive further into the character of B giving us something more than just action.

Compass #1 (Image Comics) – The series sounds like an Indiana Jones like adventure as Shahidah El-Amin searches for the secret to eternal life.

Heroes Reborn #7 (Marvel) – The event wraps up and we’re interested in seeing how. As a whole, the story has been a bit mixed in quality but there’s obviously a bigger picture here.

Nottingham #4 (Mad Cave Studios) – The new take on the classic story of Robin Hood has been amazing so far.

Perhapanauts: Second Chances #1 (Scout Comics) – The heroes head back in time to investigate The Flatwoods Monster!

Planet-Sized X-Men #1 (Marvel) – It’s a big enough issue that Marvel didn’t provide a preview. Which makes us all the more interested.

Save Yourself #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What if the heroes you looked up to weren’t what you though they were?

Seven Swords #1 (AfterShock) – Swashbuckling adventure bringing together literary heroes!

Silver City #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue reminded us a lot of Dark City and we want to see where this interesting take on the afterlife goes.

Space Pirate Captain Harlock #1 (Ablaze) – Set within the timeline of the original series, Captain Harlock heads out to new adventure. Planet Earth is threatened by an upcoming invasion by the Sylvidres and despite being banished as a pirate, Captain Harlock won’t give up trying to save the world.

Stake #4 (Scout Comics) – The series has been a nice updated take on the classic vampire genre with a lot of small details that makes it well worth checking out.

Static: Season One #1 (DC Comics/Milestone) – The Dakotaverse is back! After a long wait, it’s finally here and we’re beyond excited to dive back into this amazing world of heroes and villains.

Venom #35 (Marvel) – It’s a big enough issue that Marvel didn’t provide a preview. Which makes us all the more interested.
