Review: Analog Vol. 1

Currently in development for film at Lionsgate with John Wick Director Chad Stahelski attached!

2024: the world has been mass-doxxed, and the internet is only for porn. Every email, photo, and document ever sent rains down out of the cloud, and only a fool would send a secret over the web. This is the era of the “Paper Jockeys”: armed couriers with a briefcase of secrets who’ll get your sensitive information around the globe or die trying. Human punching bag Jack McGinnis and his partner Oona are two of the best couriers in the business. For a price, they’ll move your sensitive information where it needs to go as they fight off fascists, criminals, and spies.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Jon

Top Pick: Isola #1 (Image Comics)Isola is the story of a young warrior with a mysterious bond to her companion: a green tiger. I was struck by how well the creators used the strengths of the medium to their advantage. Well worth the time of any fan of fantasy, adventure or books that are good.

 

Joe

Top Pick: The Avengers #687 (Marvel) – This weekly event has been so much fun, and each issue has added to the wild story in a great way. Iron Hulk, Rogue Hulk, what’s next?!

The Amazing Spider-Man #798 (Marvel) – We are almost to issue 800, and I have enjoyed most of this run by Slott. So while I am excited to see what Slott does with Iron Man and leaving this title, I am also excited to see how this continues and wraps up.

Marvel Two-In-One #5 (Marvel) – Now that a new Fantastic Four book has been announced and that this book is going to continue, I am invested in this book even more. It’s been a great time, and Zdarsky and Schiti are an awesome team.

Analog #1 (Image) – Gerry Duggan is one of my favorite writers on Deadpool, Guardians and previously Uncanny Avengers. The combination of him penning this book and the premise make this book sound awesome.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Mech Cadet Yu #8 (BOOM! Studios) – Definitely not an issue to start with but there’s something fantastic about this issue that encapsulates the hope in this giant robot for kids series. The action is solid, there’s tons of personality. Just amazing all around. One of my favorite series of the past year.

Copra Round Five (Bergen Street Press) – If you’ve missed the single issues of this indie superhero comic, now you can pick them up with no excuse.

Curse of Brimstone #1 (DC Comics) – The latest entry into the “New Age of Heroes,” the first issue is great on character building and presenting a series in a location you don’t see too many superhero comics. Really interesting start.

Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #4 (DC Comics) – Still making the case as to series of the year material. Every issue is a fascinating read and you never know what to expect inside.

The Walking Dead #178 (Image Comics/Skybound) – Just when the series was getting to a lull, things have shifted with the “New World Order” storyline. I want to learn more about this new society because as good as it looks on the surface, there’s no way it’s as good as it seems.

 

Jen

Top Pick: Sex Criminals #23 (Image Comics) – If I could only read one comic for the rest of my life, Sex Criminals would probably be that book. Twenty-three issues in and the tale of Jon and Suzie continues unfolding in some sort of weird origami flower of layers under layers under layers. There’s angst! There’s laughter! There’s plenty of sex positivity! And as usual, there will be Easter-egg style puns pouring out of artist Chip Zdarsky’s background work.

Cat N Bat TP (IDW Publishing) – Every now and again you want a break from the angst and drama of mainstream comics. Cat N Bat follows in the footsteps of Get Fuzzy, Mutts, and to a lesser extent, Garfield, where two animals are besties who can’t help getting in and out of trouble together. With the added twist of “silent comedy”, Cat N Bat is sure to make you laugh without feeling like a repeat of what came before.

Snotgirl #10 (Image Comics) – Snotgirl kind of sneaks up on you. There’s not a great way to simply pitch the original premise of internet it-girl Lottie Person, whose only real roadblock in issue 1 was her allergic reaction to…the entire world. Lottie is soon put on an experimental allergy medication, meets an impossibly cool mystery chick, and has a falling out with her brunch group of fellow blogger/vlogger ladies. Issue ten rounds out the second arc of the series, which included a Misery-style former assistant, and a murder mystery that the local police are determined to pin on someone.

I Hate Fairyland #18 (Image Comics) – Skottie Young continues his pet project, where he takes a gigantic bloody hatchet to his own signature fluffy sweet style. The series focus has shifted from the green-headed Shirley Temple look-alike Gertrude to Fairyland at large. Issue 18 promises to zoom out and focus on the greatest threat Fairyland has ever seen, a resurrected baddie ready to wipe out every adorable creature great and small.

Comic Attack – Analog #1

Comic Attack – Lucy Dreaming #1

New York Comic Con 2017: Gerry Duggan and David O’Sullivan Go Analog with Image

Bestselling writer Gerry Duggan, artist David O’Sullivan, and colorist Jordie Bellaire team up for an all-new ongoing series in Analog.

Analog is the future our society is failing to prepare for. The basic security of the internet crumbles after devastating attacks on the internet result in mass doxxing. People, corporations and governments are all affected and the world is changed overnight. Secrets once entrusted to encrypted emails are now printed on paper, put into briefcases and sent around the world in the hands of discreetly armed couriers. Jack McGinnis is a hard-drinking, hard headed former member of the US intelligence community who now earns a living as a “ledger man”.

Analog is set to launch from Image Comics in 2018.
