Goosebumps: Horrors of the Witch House

Denton J. Tipton (Author) • Matthew Dow Smith (Author) • Chris Fenoglio (Artist, Cover Artist)

All the kids in Beaver Creek, Oregon, know that the old Whaley House is probably haunted, so when young tech entrepreneur Veruca Curry moves in, the kids fear there’s more to her than meets the eye. The adults in town think that Veruca is just the sort of hip, young new blood that Beaver Creek needs, but Rosie, a loner who loves anime and Japanese comics, Carlos, a popular preppy boy, and Becca, the school’s star athlete, find out the terrible truth—Veruca is a witch, and she’s got a terrible plan that could destroy Beaver Creek unless they can stop her.

“The Unfortunate Mr Druitt.” London is desperate to solve its most notorious crime – and one school teacher will pay the price.

Review: Star Trek: Picard Countdown #1

Star Trek: Picard Countdown #1

With the upcoming CBS All Access show Picard on the horizon, Star Trek: Picard Countdown #1 kicks off the lead-up. In one issue, we’re provided so much detail as to the status of various characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation. We’re also presented the current state of things. And things are a bit mixed.

Picard is now an Admiral in charge of evacuating the Romulans. They’re under threat from a supernova that may wipe out their entire people. But, their secrecy and mistrust of the Federation has made the effort difficult. Dispatched to a world where he’s told only 10,000 Romulans live, Picard is faced with a twist that threatens the operation and the peace.

Written by Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, the comic is a solid introduction to this next phase of the Star Trek universe. The two find the opportunity to update us on the many characters we’ve come to known. They also do it in a way that feels natural and not forced. The dilemma presented feels very Star Trek and a classic issue they’d need to deal with. It also feels very pertinent. With issues like climate change challenging populations and a wave of immigration due to strife, the need to evacuate the Romulans feels like it is a classic sci-fi allegory.

The art by Angel Hernandez is solid. With colors by Joana Lafuente and lettering by Neil Uyetake, the characters all look like their real-world selfs. The design of the world and Romulans also look like they’d fit into any of the recent Next Generation films or later seasons. There’s a beauty to some of the design that hides the insidious nature of it all.

The comic is a solid re-introduction to Picard and teases what should be an excellent television series. The comic feels like classic Star Trek with its blend of solid storytelling and socio-political undertones. This is one that Trek fans, and those excited about the show, should check out.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Second Coming #5

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 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 Wednesday.

Conan 2099 #1, Punisher 2099 #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s return to 2099 has been interesting with a mixed bag of quality. One of these is better than the other but overall, it’s a fun return to 80 years in the future.

Criminal #10 (Image Comics) – One of the best comics on the shelf. If you like solid storytelling or crime stories, it’s a must get.

John Constantine Hellblazer #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Constantine is back in his own series and a bit tied back with the Sandman side of things. It’ll be interesting to see where this series goes.

Killadelphia #1 (Image Comics) – A new take on the vampire story. We really want to see what original ideas this brings to the classic genre.

Last Stop #1 (Scout Comics) – A terminal superhero must stop a threat before the disease gets to him.

Second Coming #5 (AHOY Comics) – God and Satan get coffee. The series delivers some solid commentary and humor.

Star Trek: Picard Countdown #1 (IDW Publishing) – Leading up to the show and we’re beyond excited.

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 (DC Comics) – DC’s twists on classic stories have been a bit mixed, but we still look forward to seeing what each does with the source material.

Touching Evil #1 (Source Point Press) – An attorney is given the power to kill someone if they’re evil. But, what is evil?
