Dale’s life has been nothing even close to normal since a flying monster descended on his planet and destroyed it, but things get even weirder as he discovers the Centipede’s history, in what can only be described as a psychedelic trip down the creature’s memory lane.

Trapped on a planet by yourself with a murderous monster can be a stressful ordeal, but Dale is taking it relatively well. Relatively being the key word. He is doing his best to make sure the world killer stays on his heels while trying to find a way to hurt it before his time runs out, all done with the help of his imaginary friend…you!

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.

Catalyst Prime: Accell #3 (Lion Forge Comics) – Lion Forge has been knocking it out of the park with their new line of superhero comics and this is one that’s tons of fun.

Centipede #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The first issue was a surprising solid read. Based on the classic Atari game it’s history sucked us in but the first issue has us coming back.

The Defenders #4 (Marvel) – The first three issues have been fantastic and we’re interested in seeing where this goes and how it lines up with the upcoming Netflix series.

First Strike #1 (IDW Publishing) – The next big event in the Hasbro universe kicks off here. To see GI Joe and Transformers interact, we’re sold.

Generations: Phoenix & Jean Grey #1 (Marvel) – The first “Generations” comic was a dud but we want to see if that was a fluke or if it was par.

Ghost Money #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – Money was stolen with 9/11 in this new series which has one of the most unique concepts we’ve heard in quite some time.

Grass Kings #6 (BOOM! Studios) – The first five issues have been as amazing to read as they are to look at.

Ian Livingstone’s Freeway Fighter #4 (Titan Comics) – The first three issues have been high octane entertainment in what feels like a series that deserves more time. Hopefully we’ll get more after this story wraps up.

Inhumans: Once and Future Kings #1 (Marvel) – Christopher Priest is writing this. That alone has us interested.

Quake Champions #1 (Titan Comics) – The classic video game comes to comics and we’re intrigued to see what’s done with it.

Redlands #1 (Image Comics) – A creepy new series mixing vampires in a southern town. It’s good, real good. Read our review.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #11 (Marvel) – One of the best comics Marvel is putting out today. Aphra is the best addition to the Star Wars universe in a long time.

Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K2SO Special #1 (Marvel) – Wonder how these two met? Well here you go!

Transformers: Till All Are One #12 (IDW Publishing) – I know what you’re saying, it’s a comic based on a cartoon featuring giant robots. Every series impresses with comics that touch on adult topics such as when life begins, castes, and politics. This one nails the latter with a story that rivals any story where individuals jockey for control.

The Unsound #3 (BOOM! Studios) – Cullen Bunn has been crafting a creepy horror comic that has layers to it that can be discussed for days.

Dale is on a hero’s journey, but it is not one for glory. It is for revenge. He has survived this long on his own, but now he has decided the only thing left for him to do is kill the giant monster that took everything away from him!

Review: Centipede #1

“I’m no action hero. Mostly I just like pasta.” -Dale Trell

Well, if those aren’t words to live by, I don’t know what are. In Centipede #1, our protagonist, Dale Trell, has been in hiding for roughly three weeks after an unidentified monster has come to his home planet and jump started an apocalypse that has killed everyone else on STY-REK. He’s finally mustered up the courage to leave his shelter and take revenge on the unidentified monster.

Dynamite Entertainment takes on the challenge of bringing former Atari game to life in a new venture featuring the legendary console game—Centipede. Writer Max Bemis and artist Eoin Marron have teamed up to bring the classic to fruition. If the name Max Bemis looks familiar to you, it’s because he is the frontman for band, Say Anything.

Bemis relies on humor and backstory for this first issue. The most imaginative and fun aspect of this story is how Trell grew up with an obsession about earth life, mirroring humans obsession with aliens, and I’m looking forward to learning more about how this helps him navigate conquering the centipede. I’m also looking forward to seeing him come into contact with other survivors. I don’t see the story remaining very interesting if that doesn’t happen.

If you’re like me and love a good post-apocalypse story, then you should definitely check out this new series, and join me in the journey to see where it goes!

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!

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.

Paul

Top Pick: Jean Grey #4 (Marvel) – Jean Grey is doing everything she can to see that she doesn’t suffer under the power of the Phoenix, like her “other” self did…and I am here for all of it! This has been a really great series with a strong lead character who isn’t taking crap from anyone, especially a cosmic fire bird. Her search for answers has been fun, and I am really looking to the inevitable showdown with the big bird itself.

Hulk #8 (Marvel) – This series has been a great read, following Jen as she struggled to keep her anger in check, but now that her Hulk has been released, it’s going to be more interesting to see how she learns to balance life as Jennifer and her new Hulk persona, or if one will take complete control. If you’re not already reading this book, I recommend jumping on board.

Weapon X #5 (Marvel) – This has been an exciting crossover with Old Man Logan, his team and Amadeus Cho. The team is tracking down the Weapon X program to shut it down for good, and along the way we’re getting some decent character interaction and action. I am excited to see if Weapon X’s ‘batch H’ prototype is released, because that will be a showdown not to be missed.

Top Pick: American Way: Those Above and Below #1 (Vertigo) – John Ridley is back and returns to the series he completed 10 years ago. It’s 1972 and tensions are rising in this heroes in the real world take that blew me away with its first issue.

Catalyst Prime: Accell #2 (Lion Forge Comics) – I loved the first issue and can’t wait to read the second. Just a lot of fun.

Centipede #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I know this being on here might seem crazy, but the first issue is a lot of fun and hits the right buttons for us that grew up playing Atari.

Dark Days: The Casting #1 (DC Comics) – A bit heavier in DC lore than I like, but it’s setting up what feels like one hell of a mystery and one hell of a battle to come.

S##t and P##s (Retrofit Comics) – This indie publisher has never disappointed and this is no exception. A dark journey into a sewage processing plant built on top of the ruins of a failing civilization. The custodian of this horrid place encounters all types of things that should not be in this science fiction adventure.

Centipede is the Latest Atari Comic Book

Dynamite Entertainment continues its partnership with Atari to create a new comics line based on beloved Atari video game titles. The two entertainment juggernauts are pleased to announce that Centipede will join the recently released Swordquest as the latest title in the retrogaming series. Launching in July, Centipede #1 will bring a tale of survival and vengeance to comic book and gaming fans everywhere, courtesy of writer Max Bemis and artist Eoin Marron.

Sci-Fi, horror, and action collide in a comic for fans of Aliens, The Thing, and Predator. When a terrifying creature from beyond the stars attacks his planet, protagonist Dale’s journey begins, but he is not out to save his world; its already much too late for that. As the lone survivor, the only thing Dale wants is revenge.

The debut issue of Centipede features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of Francesco Francavilla, interior artist Eoin Marron, and Dan Schkade. A special classic game art cover will also be available. Limited variant editions in “Black & White,” “Homage,” and “Virgin Art” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds. Fans will also be excited by the Classic Atari mini-comic incentive, a remastered reissue of the whimsical 32-page mini-comic (measuring 5″ x 7.75″) which was originally packaged with the Atari cartridge of its namesake.

Centipede #1 is slated for release in July.
