Mini Reviews and Recommendations For The Week Ending 07/24/2021

Sometimes, the staff at Graphic Policy read more comics than we’re able to get reviewed. When that happens you’ll see a weekly feature compiling short reviews from the staff of the comics, or graphic novels, we just didn’t get a chance to write a full review for. Given the lack of new comics, expect this weekly update to begin featuring comics that we think you’ll enjoy while you can’t get anything new to read – only new to you.

These are Graphic Policy’s Mini Reviews and Recommendations.


Brett

Dark Blood #1 (BOOM! Studios) – There’s a lot of potential for this series and the first issue is a nice setup for everything. There’s a lot teased and some solid moments but overall it feels like the issue is a bit too decompressed and dragged out. Still, it shows this is a series to really pay attention to and keep an eye on. Overall Rating: 7.5 Recommendation: Read

Snow Angels Season 2 #2 (comiXology Originals) – Each issue of this series continues to surprise. The twists and turns of this issue not only keeps readers on their toes but teases out the bigger world we’re learning so much about. What’s great about the comic is you never know what’s coming up and where it’s going to go. Add in beautiful art and this is a series that’s a must read digital release. Overall Rating: 8.5 Recommendation: Buy

Syphon #1 (Image) I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one; the cover art drew me in, but the comic didn’t really do enough to make me want to come back for more. The story felt a little rough and definitely could have benefitted from a little exposition, but the art was solid throughout the comic. Not a bad read, but it wasn’t particularly memorable for me. Overall: 6.7 Recommendation: Read

Gods Of Brutality #1 (Black Caravan/Scout) A rock star is about to retire and so tells the true story of his death and subsequent rescue from Hell by Thor and Hercules. Nothing I write will describe the comic better than you’re now imagining it, and it’s just as good as you hope it is. Cartoonish, violet and gory with demons who like crude jokes, this is the kind of comic you read to not think about things. Overall: 8 Recommendation: Buy


Well, there you have it, folks. The reviews we didn’t quite get a chance to write. See you next week!

Please note that with some of the above comics, Graphic Policy was provided FREE copies for review. Where we purchased the comics, you’ll see an asterisk (*). If you don’t see that, you can infer the comic was a review copy. In cases where we were provided a review copy and we also purchased the comic you’ll see two asterisks (**).

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Superman and the Authority #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.

Blue & Gold #1 (DC Comics) – Booster Gold and Blue Beetle in their own miniseries. That’s all we need to be excited for this one.

Dark Blood #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What if you were given the power to change the course of history? In the 1950s a Black man is given strange new abilities in a society that never wanted him to have any power.

Lunar Ladies #1 (Scout Comics) – A highly advanced society lives on the moon and their peaceful way to live is fractured by a geneticist hell-bent on usurping the queen’s power.

MOM: Mother of Madness #1 (Image Comics) – Actress Emilia Clarke’s new series.

Moon Knight #1 (Marvel) – When it comes to Marvel’s version of Batman, the first issue is solid.

Skybound X #3 (Image Comics) – The series has shown off the variety that Skybound publishes and debuts in each issue. A nice anthology we hope to see more of.

Solo Leveling Vol. 2 (Yen Press) – The first volume was fantastic where dungeon crawling is a profession and one of the worst in the business might actually not be that bad.

Superman and the Authority #1 (DC Comics) – We’ve read it. It’s really good.

Syphon #1 (Image Comics/Top Cow) – An EMT is given the power to siphon pain from others but the more he uses the gift, the more it curses him with the pain of others.

Tales From Harrow County: Fair Folk #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Cullen Bunn returns to Harrow County with Emily Schnall for a new miniseries. The first series was fantastic so we’re expecting more.
