October is Creature Feature Time with Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter

Dark Horse Comics has the perfect comic for the Halloween season! Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter is the debut comic from award-winning actor David Dastmalchian and artist Lukas Ketner

In Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter, Jerri Bartman, once a rising TV journalist, has returned to her small Midwest hometown TV station. Demoted to hosting the nightly Creature Feature, Jerri’s professional humiliation is eclipsed by the discovery that her new job comes with a secret, supernatural duty. Her missing predecessor, Count Crowley, was one of the last “Appointed” hunters of monsters. Yes. Monsters. They’re real, and they’re hell-bent on controlling the news and information consumed by humans. Everything we’ve ever been taught about monsters is a lie, and Jerri’s only possible advisor is a senile male chauvinist. It’s 1983, and the outlook for humanity is getting . . . gnarly. Our only hope is an alcoholic, acerbic horror host from Missouri. 

Prepare to fight your demons (literally) on October 23, 2019.

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.

Bad Weekend (Image Comics) – If you missed this story arc from Criminal in individual issues, now’s your chance to get it… plus extras!

Criminal #6 (Image Comics) – One of the best comics out today. Each issue is amazing and a must for folks who enjoy crime/noir comics or just quality.

Black Hammer/Justice League #1 (Dark Horse/DC Comics) – Jeff Lemire’s brilliant deconstruction of superheroes meets some of the original heroes.

Care Bears #1 (IDW Publishing) – The classic property get a comic series and we’re always excited to see classic kids properties see new life. More comics geared towards young kids is a good thing.

Fallen World #3 (Valiant) – Valiant consistently knocks it out of the park and this is a series that’s well worth checking out as to see why the publisher is known for quality.

Giant-Size X-Statix #1 (Marvel) – The X-Statix are back and you don’t need to know the past to enjoy this giant-size comic. Filled with humor and well worth checking out.

Ghosted in L.A. #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Sina Grace and Siobhan Keenan’s new series about a girl with undead roommates. The premise sounds fun.

Lola XOXO Vol. 3 #1 (Aspen Comics) – We’ve been fans of this series since the first volume. It’s a post-apocalyptic world that has a nice “western” feel to it.

The Magicians: Alice’s Story (BOOM! Studios) – The popular series comes to comics.

Naomi #6 (DC Comics) – The end of the “first season” of the series and if you’ve missed it, you’re missing one of the best superhero comics out there. It’s nailed the set-up and delivered on reveals. Naomi is a breakout star in the making. Don’t miss out on this entire series. Amazing writing and even better art.

Reaver #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from Justin Jordan and Rebekah Isaacs, that creative team alone has us excited. Six horrible individuals are assembled to help stop the end of the new world. It sounds like the Dirty Dozen (in half) but this creative combo has us excited to see the insanity is coming.

Second Coming #1 (AHOY Comics) – The delayed (and publisher switched) controversial series is finally out and we want to see what the buzz is all about and if it deserves the notoriaty and protests, it has.

Strangelands #1 (Humanoids/H1 Comics) – The latest entry in the Humanoids “H1” superhero comics line is an interesting concept of two individuals who cause mass destruction when they’re separated.

The world of ElfQuest continues to grow at Dark Horse Comics with an all-new series! ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt has a story by ElfQuest co-creators Wendy and Richard Pini, and a script by Wendy Pini.

Veteran ElfQuest alumnus Sonny Strait returns at full force as the artist (over layouts by Wendy) and colorist for the new series.

When ElfQuest: The Final Quest concluded, it ended the hero’s journey of Cutter Kinseeker, chief of the Wolfriders. But that was only the start of a new adventure for Cutter’s “brother in all but blood,” Skywise. Now the stargazer elf, who thought he knew everything about Cutter, discovers how mistaken he was. That, combined with a tragic accident involving his daughter Jink, sends Skywise on a quest of his own, from the elves’ ancestral Star Home through uncharted space, and back to the World of Two Moons.

ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt #1 (of 6) goes on sale November 13, 2019.

ElfQuest: Stargazer’s Hunt #1

Review: No One Left to Fight #1

No One Left to Fight #1

While I’ve had a digital review copy for a bit, No One Left to Fight #1 felt like a comic I needed to experience in my hands physically. Created by Aubrey Sitterson and Fico Ossio, the series is an homage and love letter to anime and manga. The series focuses on Vâle, a hero who saved the world and is now retired with no one left to fight. It’s an interesting beginning setting up what’s to come but really diving in to the tropes that make anime and manga fun and accessible.

It feels like Sitterson at times is going down a list as to what makes anime and manga successful and popular. We have the hero fighter. There’s the jealous rival. There’s two young kids full of energy. There’s the odd anthropomorphic friend. And there’s the token woman who’s capable and also an object of jealousy. This isn’t a bad thing at all as it feels like it comes from a place of love as opposed to a send up of it all.

There’s also something really smart and interesting about its use. It’s familiar which makes the entry into the comic, and it’s world, that much easier. We’re familiar with the tropes and personalities. With that there’s a certain expectation but also allows us to focus elsewhere. We can look at the art details a little more and examine the words said a bit differently.

And that art detail is key. Ossio’s designs are amazing with so much detail and colors that make it all pop. There’s not an attempt to copy manga style too. Instead, Ossio uses his own. Due to that, we can further enjoy the series as more of a love letter as opposed to a riff. With the detailed and colorful nature of Ossio’s art, that over the top nature might not have worked as well. It might have been too distracting in some ways as the art styles might have clashed. Like the characters and story, there’s absolute influence and it’s used subtlety.

Taylor Esposito‘s lettering is key as well. Much like manga, the lettering really is used to help deliver the emotion of a scene. It plays off of the art so you can “hear” the screams. Esposito’s lettering emphasizes what’s going on and pairs with Ossio’s art perfectly.

The first issue is entertaining and delivers an interesting debut that’s one anime and manga fans will want to check out.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Aero #1

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.

Aero #1 (Marvel) – The character gets her own series with an English translation of her origin and an all-new tale. Great to see this creation become more accessible.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #3 (DC Comics/IDW Publishing) – The series has been off the wall fun mashing up so much between DC and TMNT. Just sit back and enjoy the fun.

Charlie’s Angels vs. Bionic Woman #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – How has it taken this long for this to happen?

DCeased #3 (DC Comics) – DC doing a zombie story? We had low expectations honestly since the concept has been done so many times before but this series has pleasantly surprised us so far.

Lois Lane #1 (DC Comics) – Lois gets her own series! In an age where journalists are “the enemy,” we’re expecting a lot from this series.

Ignited #2 (Humanoids/H1) – The first issue is fantastic. It’s a world where students seem to be getting powers set in the aftermath of a school shooting. An interesting concept that we want to learn more about.

No One Left to Fight #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – An anime/manga inspired series from Aubrey Sitterson and Fico Ossio about what happens when the hero grows older and there’s just no one left to fight.

Postal: Deliverance #1 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – The new story arc finds Mark struggling with being the Mayor of Eden. A very underrated series about a town filled with criminals that’s worth checking out, especially with this new arc/starting point.

Sea of Stars #1 (Image Comics) – Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum’s new series about space truckers. The fact Aaron is on board and he can do the amazing long game writing has us excited about this creator-owned series.

Space Bandits #1 (Image Comics/Millarworld) – The new series by Mark Millar with art by Matteo Scalera. It sounds like the heist/betrayal/revenge story but with Millar’s backing by Netflix, this one is a series to watch.

Spencer and Locke 2 #4 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume wraps up with a bang. If you haven’t been reading this twisted tale, you’ve been missing out. It’s all revealed here and has us hoping for more.

Star Wars: Target Vader #1 (Marvel) – Bounty hunters go after Vader and the concept sounds too awesome to not read.

Test #1 (Vault Comics) – From Christopher Sebela and Jen Hickman, this series is a weird story about the need for liberation and technology.

Thumbs #2 (Image Comics) – The story about technology, revolution, and the government is right up our way and we’re enjoying the hell out of it.

The Walking Dead #193 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – Sounds like this’ll be a big issue! What the hell is going on? We’ll find out Wednesday.
