Pick(s) of the Week: Coffin Hill #1 and so many more….

COFFIN_Cv1_REV_823iqzml0v_Coffin Hill stars Eve Coffin, a rebellious, teenage lowlife from a high-society family with a curse that goes back to the Salem Witch trials.

Following a night of sex, drugs and witchcraft in the woods, Eve wakes up naked, covered in blood and unable to remember how she got there. One friend is missing, one is in a mental ward—and one knows that Eve is responsible.

After a stint as a Boston cop that ends in a bullet wound and unintended celebrity, Eve returns to Coffin Hill, only to discover the darkness that she unleashed ten years ago in the woods was never contained. It continues to seep through the town, cursing the soul of this sleepy Massachusetts hollow, spilling secrets and enacting its revenge.

Set against the haunted backdrop of New England, Coffin Hill explores what people will do for power and retribution. Noted novelist Caitlin Kittredge, author of the Black London series, brings a smart, mesmerizing style to comics. Artist Inaki Miranda brings his dynamic storytelling to Coffin Hill, following an acclaimed run on Fairest.

Andrew:

Top Pick: Coffin Hill #1 (Vertigo) – Witches are back. FX has American Horror Story: Coven, Lifetime has The Witches of East End, now Vertigo has Coffin Hill. I’m going to check out all three (yes, even the Lifetime show).

Batman #24 (DC Comics) – I THINK this book signals the end of the one-off villain origin issues. ‘Bout time. Looking forward to getting back to Zero Year.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #4 (Titan Comics) – I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, dinosaurs and a machine gun toting Albert Einstein, how are you not reading this?

Cryptozoic Man #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Comic Book Men‘s debut series. It’ll be interesting to see what comes out when lifelong comic fans become creators instead of consumers.

Star Wars #10 (Dark Horse) – Brian Wood kills it monthly with this series. It reminds me of the original Star Wars trilogy of my childhood.

Brett:

Top Pick: Coffin Hill #1 (Vertigo) – Did you not read the description above? Vertigo is seeing a second (or is it third or fourth?) renaissance with amazing releases that have consistently entertained.

Death Sentence #1 (Titan Comics) – You can read my review here. The first issue knocks it out of the park.

Molly Danger Book 1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – Expect a review later today. Jamal Igle’s Kickstarted series is everything I hoped it would be… and that’s fun!

Rocket Girl #1 (Image Comics) – A teenage cop from a high-tech future is sent back in time to 1986 New York City. Sold.

Superman/Wonder Woman #1 (DC Comics) – The series sounds intriguing and a lot of what’s been said about the series has me wanting to check it out. Writer Charles Soule is talented and proven he can breathe life into series that shouldn’t work, so crossing my fingers.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Battling Boy Vol. 1 (First Second) – Expect a review this week, but this new series by Paul Pope is amazing.

Scott:

Top Pick: Batman #24 (DC Comics) – It’s been a long month away from the regular DC titles, and I can’t wait to jump back in to Zero Year. Plus, this issue is double the size of a normal book, and while that does mean double the price, it also means double the fun.

Afterlife with Archie #1 (Archie Comics) – I never, ever thought I’d be interested in reading an Archie comic, but thanks to the involvement of Francesco Francavilla on interiors, I decided to give it a look. I’m glad I did, and you will be too.

Rocket Girl #1 (Image Comics) – I don’t know a whole lot about this series, but anything sci-fi is intriguing to me, and Amy Reeder is a brilliant artist that I’m happy to see working on an ongoing comic.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: Lazarus Vol. 1 (Image Comics) – Unsurprisingly, one of the most vital and engaging new series in 2013 comes from two of the best creators working in comics, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark. Do yourself a favor and pick up this first volume so that you’ll be ready to jump in when it returns from hiatus.

Pick(s) of the Week: Boxers & Saints and so Much More

BoxersSaintsIt’s a new week of comics and this Wednesday sees an interesting batch of releases. While going over the long list of comics and graphic novels coming out, one stood out amongst the rest, Gene Luen Yang‘s Boxers & Saints, a two-volume graphic novel that depicts the Chinese Boxer Rebellion.

Published by First Second, the set tells the story from two perspectives, one of the revolutionaries and from a Chinese girl saved by Christian missionaries. Either read together or separate, the graphic novels are a true work of art, layered in their content with beautiful imagery.

Many creators hope to publish one great graphic novel, Yang decides to one-up everyone by releasing two in one week.

Check out below for the rest of the team’s picks!

Andrew:

Top Pick: Kings Watch #1 (Dynamite) – Since their last reunion in the 1986 animated series Defenders of the Earth, Dynamite’s Justice League of 1930s pulp heroes looks like the perfect alliance to battle a global threat.

Star Wars #9 (Dark Horse) – As long as Brian Wood continues to maintain the look and feel of the original Star Wars trilogy, I’ll keep reading this series. The second Jar Jar Binks shows up, I’m out.

Batman #23.2 Riddler (DC) – These Batman sub issues are an interesting take on the universe’s villainous characters, but I’m ready to get back to #24.

Mars Attacks Judge Dredd (IDW) – After reading the unflinchingly serious Judge Dredd Year One, this book looks like a nice departure into the absurd.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: The Halloween Legion: The Great Goblin Invasion (Dark Horse) – Sean and I posted rave early reviews of this HC, but in case you missed them, this story provides a fantastically fun start to the fall season.

Brett:

Top Pick: Might Avengers #1 (Marvel) – I’m a bit hesitant to put this one as the top pick, but Marvel has put together a “minority” super hero team to defend Earth as the rest of the heroes are off in space dealing with bad guys. There’s something about this that makes me feel dirty, but at the same time, the line-up of characters is too good to not read.

A1 #4 (Titan Comics) – Titan has been knocking it out of the park with each issue. This anthology is all quality in both storytelling and the art. Just an amazing package. I wish we could get each of these stories as their own individual series they’re that good.

Ballistic #2 (Titan Comics) – My second pick is also from Titan. This series evokes the crazy out-there British comics of the 80s. The issue is fantastic.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #3 (Titan Comics) – Titan has an impressive three comics on my list. Dinosaurs +time travel + Nazis = fun. The comic is beautiful and fun and just screams B-movie entertainment.

Sons of Anarchy #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The popular and widely acclaimed television series comes to comics.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week:  Cyborg 009 (BOOM! Studios/Archaia) – You can read my review here. To say I liked it is an understatement. The graphic novel is fun and exciting all bundled up in a beautiful package both inside and out.

Trapped in the past, surrounded by starving velociraptors, and liberally daubed in blood, the Sarge and his squad are in their tightest spot yet!

But there’s no time to linger on their slim chance of escape – they’re sharing the Cretaceous with the Nazi time crew who’ve stolen an Allied Chronosphere – a piece of tech that could tilt the Time War in the Nazis’ favor! It’s up to the Sarge to take it back – or die trying!

Pulse-pounding painted pulpcore action, just like Mama always made!

Pick(s) of the Week: Infinity #1 and a Whole Bunch More

Infinity_1_CoverAfter months of build up this week kicks off a new Marvel event Infinity. While the Avengers head into space to deal with a threat, Thanos takes advantage and attacks Earth. This has been a long time coming with seeds being laid for years now. Jonathan Hickman, Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena and Dustin Weaver are tasked with putting together this event and bring back the Marvel universe to a time when the threats were of a galactic nature.

It’ll be a tough task with recent events not living up to the hype, but this is a big release, so that’s why it comes out on top as our “pick.”

Check out below for the rest of the team’s top picks in alphabetical order:

Andrew:

Top Pick: Breath of Bones: Tale of the Golem #3 (Dark Horse) – Steve Nile’s amazing World War II mini series comes to an end. It is a powerful and moving finale.

Batman #23 (DC) – Doesn’t the cover alone make you want to read it? It will never get old watching Bruce Wayne become Batman.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #2 (Titan Comics) – A gun-toting Albert Einstein blasts time traveling nazis, need I say more? Titan’s best series, hands down.

East of West #5 (Image) – There are still loose ends that need to be tied and roads that need to be traveled in this post apocalyptic sci-fi western. I have a feeling that we’ll start getting answers soon.

Star Wars #8 (Dark Horse) – Once you sort through the unending Star Wars literature, Brian Wood’s series stands out as a diamond in the rough. It takes place after the events of Episode IV and carries a wonderfully nostalgic feeling of the original trilogy.

Brett:

A1 #3 (Titan Comics) – One of the best anthologies on the market. Each issue leaves me with wanting more. Read my review.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #2 (Titan Comics) – Nazi’s, time travel and dinosaurs. Do I really need to say more as to why you should be reading this? Read my review.

Fubar: By the Sword #1 (Fubar Press) – With multiple volumes under their belt. This small press phenomenon is out with a two issue series featuring the writing of Chuck Dixon taking on some alternate history.

Infinity #1 (Marvel) – Marvel kicks off their next major event. It’ll have long-term impact that’ll last until the next major event.

It Came! #1 (Titan Comics) – 50’s B-movie fun in comic form. Read my review.

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: March Book One (Top Shelf) – The life of Congressman Lewis, this is the first release in a three-part trilogy chronicling his involvement in the Civil Rights movement. This isn’t just a story, this is history and a graphic novel that should be in every school room. Read my review.

Sean:

Top Pick: Saga #13 (Image) – It’s back, baby! Need I say more?

Breath of Bones: A Tale of the Golem #3 (Dark Horse) – This fantastic black-and-white story of faith and war in the Jewish context is a heroic story unlike any other. Much too short-lived, but fantastic nonetheless.

Batgirl #23 (DC) – Simone has been blowing Batgirl out of the water lately. This issue begins the story of Commissioner Gordon looking to get revenge on Batgirl—his daughter!

Infinity #1 (Marvel) – I have to say I’m not so much looking forward to Infinity, but this is a must-get because of its centrality in Marvel’s current storyline.

Justice League of America #7 (DC) – Trinity War continues here: we’ll hopefully find out who the Secret Society of Super-Villains is, and maybe who their spy in the Justice Leagues is…

TPB/Graphic Novel of the Week: The First X-Men (Marvel) – Neal Adams and Christos Gage write the ‘secret’ history of the X-Men before Xavier’s school. This collects the five-issue mini-series from last August.

Review: A1 #3, Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #2, Lenore #8, Tomorrrowland #1, Numbercruncher #1

A1 #3

A1_03_CoverB_Back_webFrankenstein’s Monster is in the Weir and the angry mob greeting him with pitchforks and flaming torches are Mice, Weasels and Rabbits.

From World War 2 to Iraq, you’ll always find Blazing Glory in the thick of it. But after 60 years of combat he’s starting to question what he’s doing and why.

An extremely out-of-shape video game freak assembles his own army of gamers and plans a hit on a well-loved politician.
The reason? Said politician made a really disparaging comment on the nutfreak’s favorite game. Carpediem vs an army of vengeful nerds!

That’s the three stories you’ll find in Titan Comics‘ amazing anthology. Each is totally different in style and story, but they’re all amazingly good. There really is something for everyone, and that something is quality. The three stories, Carpediem, Odyssey, and Weirding Willows are each entertaining in their own way. All are familiar, with similar stories out there, but each have a spin and look that make them stand out from the rest.

Carpediem is the most original of the bunch following a team of super-agents, each named after a day of the week and each with their own “theme” and ability. There’s some great continuing jokes through the series that gets me to laugh with each issue. It’s just mad fun to read.

Odyssey might look like a certain character from another certain company, but it’s standing on its own with a beautiful style and action that keeps you entertained.

Weirding Willows is a mash-up comic taking characters from literary past. You’ll recognize the characters in a whole new way and so far the comic really stands out from all of the other similar comics out there with it’s focus, pacing and amazing art.

Titan Comics is making a case with each issue that A1 could be “the” anthology comic of the year. It’s that damn good.

Chronos Commandos: Dawn Patrol #2

Chron_Comm_02cover_webNazi saboteurs have overrun Chronos Command, and made off with a Chronosphere core – a priceless piece of Allied technology that could change the course of the Time War!

Can the Sarge, his crack squad depleted after the white-knuckle events of #1, mount a daring recovery mission into the past with a unit of rookies? You’d better hope so — because all of history rides on the outcome!

First, lets talk about the art from Stuart Jennett who pulls double duty as the writer. The painted art is jaw dropping and so cool looking. There’s only a few artists who can pull this off and Jennett is up there with a style that makes each character unique and stand out, something some artists of this style have issues with. The art alone makes it a “buy.”

Next is the story which continues the pulpy B-movie fun involving time travel, dinosaurs and Nazis. That combination, how can it not be enjoyable? But, like the first issue, the characters are cookie-cutter and fill their role as the adventure moves along. You have the grizzled leader, the scientist who isn’t a soldier, and the red-shirts that you know will die at some point. They all have their role and fill it well.

The comic is just a lot of fun, it feels like a pulp movie. Rarely does a comic deliver exactly what you expect and does so with as much fun. We’re two issues in and I still think this is one of the most fun comics of the summer.

It Came! #1

IT CAME! CoverWitness a very British invasion!

Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 will love this hilarious B-movie romp, a knowing throwback to the heyday of low-budget SF cinema – in comic book form!

An enormous alien robot lays waste to the English countryside, annihilating bunting, villages and diagonally-sliced sandwiches alike! Only the pipe-chomping space scientist Dr. Boy Brett and his assistant Doris Night (a lady) stand a chance of stopping it from marching all the way to London – but can they possibly escape the grasp of GRURK and get the might of the British Army on their side?!

Keep your upper lips stiff, your ties immaculately knotted, and your notions of gender equality dialled back sixty years – for the sake of the planet!

It Came! feels like a lost classic movie, in this case from Pinetree Studios, filled with advertisements that draw you further into the time this might have come out.

Writer and artist Dan Boultwood continues Titan Comics’ dominance of the B-movie done in comic form with a story that not only feels like a B-movie plot wise, but also pulls from the sexism and misogyny of that time. You’re sucked in and at no point is Boultwood breaking character to update the tale.

Comics are supposed to be fun and Boultwood clearly understands that. This is a great debut and another example why Titan Comics is a publisher to keep an eye on.

Lenore #8

Lenore#8-coveraWhen a film crew from the “Ghosty Toasty” TV show: “Where we toast that ghost!” turns up at Lenore’s mansion in search of ‘ghosts and ghouls’… they get more than they bargained for, much, much more!

Issue #8 of Lenore marks the beginning of the end for one of Lenore’s main characters; with the start of a four-issue story-arc that will culminate in a fight-to-the-death between two of the comic’s most beloved characters. But who will stand victorious – and who will die, never to live again..?

Each of the four issues will also reveal the shocking truth behind the mask of Taxidermy (perhaps Lenore’s most mysterious and sinister character) and reveal his incredible history, which started back in the days of ancient Egypt!

It’s been a long time since I picked up an issue of Lenore, but even after all these years, creator Roman Dirge has continued the cute and twisted series in exactly the same messed up way I remember. The comic is hilarious, to the point I was laughing out loud numerous times and had people staring at me trying to figure out what I was reading and why it was so funny.

The cute beginning, the skewering of the “ghost hunting” shows that’s on television, and all in a package that moves along Lenore’s story. It all works together in a fun and twisted way.

I got to the end and felt like it’s been too long since I picked up a copy of Lenore. I’ve clearly been depriving myself and need to go back and find out what I’ve been missing all these years.

Tomorrrowland #1

TomorrowLand (Atomeka)From the Eisner award-winning writer of Spider-ManWolverine: OriginThe Inhumans and The Darkness comes a music-led adventure like no other!

Meet Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, two young DJs – and the public faces of the world-renowned Tomorrowland festival – as they are drawn into an impossible adventure to save the vital spark of creativity!

Over the course of this retina-blasting fantasy adventure, the pair find themselves sucked into an eternal war between two worlds, a battle waged between the forces of creation and destruction for the energy we all carry inside us. It’s a war we’re rapidly losing, but can two DJs turn the tide over the course of just one festival?

I went into this comic with no idea what to expect. I’ve seen the build up and the previews and other than it taking place at some music festival, I was in the dark. The comic is best described as a modern fantasy with music acting as magic and full of the types of characters and monsters you’d expect in that type of story.

The characters are interesting too, I’m still not quite sure if I’m totally bought in and like the two protagonists. I’m not bought in that I’m cheering for them right now. Something just doesn’t sit right yet. Maybe it’s because I’m long disconnected from the type of world and environment they live in?

The art though is fantastic, with a great look and feel about it, that’s a major draw to the comic. The look is amazing.

The first issue was enough for me to come back for the second. It’s interesting and unique enough to stand out. We’ll see though what the second issue has in store and if that’ll keep my interest and enjoyment more than just something pretty to look at.

Numbercruncher #1

Numbercruncher_#1_FinalCoverLayout_lowNumbercruncher is an  off-the-wall romance mixing time-travel, life-after-death and coal-black comedy is by Si Spurrier and  P.J. Holden.

Utterly unusual, vaguely insane, and unexpectedly heart-warming, Numbercruncher follows a brilliant mathematician who dies young, enters the afterlife and discovers a way to cheat the terrifying Divine Calculator. He schemes to be endlessly reincarnated within the lifespan of the woman he loves, no matter how often the violent bailiffs of the Karmic Accountancy cut short each life. It falls to one such bailiff – the surly Bastard Zane – to put a stop to the time-twisting romance once and for all, before the Mathematician can pull-off his greatest trick and escape Existential Justice forever!

Numbercruncher was originally serialized in black & white in Judge Dredd Megazine in the UK. The series is now being newly colored and expanded for the first time by Titan Comics. And that coloring is something that stands out to me, because it’s not the entire comic, instead just specific panels and parts. It’s a look that’s very cool and really catches the eye.

Overall the story is highly entertaining with a concept I haven’t quite seen before. The concept is an interesting one with a new spin in life after death and a main character in Bastard Zane who you can’t quite cheer for. But, at the same time, he’s entertaining, hell the whole world is really entertaining.

The fact that this comic is a reprint doesn’t phase me at all, it’s all new material in my eyes. And it’s material that I find engrossing and creative. I want to see what comes next and where this all goes. If you’ve never read the series before, absolutely check this one out. Another example why Titan Comics is a titan in the industry.
