Brendan McCarthy’s Psychedelic Comics Opus Dream Gang in July

Dark Horse Comics has announced the release of Brendan McCarthy’s psychedelic comics opus Dream Gang which will hit shelves in July.

Collecting the story originally published in Dark Horse Presents, Dream Gang represents veteran comics creator Brendan McCarthy at his finest.

A young man is transformed into a Dream Voyager while he sleeps by the mysterious Dream Gang. They are searching for a destructive dream bomb that has been implanted into one of his memories. But to find the bomb, a secret memory must be uncovered.

A Fantastic Voyage through the mind!

Dream Gang arrives on July 27 and retails for $14.99.

The Goldbergs and Dark Horse, 1980 What!?

If you watch ABC’s The Goldbergs, hopefully you’re as entertained by not just the family but the nostalgia from living in the 1980s.

Tonight’s Halloween episode had Beverly Goldberg justifying her Predator costume to go along her son’s Alien costume by citing Dark Horse Presents #36. The comic is the birthplace of Alien vs Predator, the classic franchise from Dark Horse Comics.

In a voice over it’s stated the episode takes place in October 1980 something. The problem? Dark Horse Presents #36 didn’t come out until January 1990. The Dark Horse website lists its publication date as February 1, 1990. The comic didn’t even exist when the episode supposedly took place.

Details people!

Congrats Dark Horse on the exposure!

And despite the slip, this is a show folks should be watching.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

March Book Two cover (300dpi)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. Lots of comics from IDW Publishing this made our lists!

Brett

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Mixing politics with horror? Yes please! I’ve looked forward to this series that sees a detective head to Iraq to solve some murders.

The Kitchen #3 (Vertigo) – Under the radar, and awesome. The series is a 70s set crime series featuring the wives of the the mobsters.

March Book 2 (Top Shelf Productions) – My most anticipated graphic novel (and comic) of 2015 is out this week, and it’s so appropriate as it was MLK day yesterday. Expect this one to win awards at the end of the year.

Millennium #1 (IDW Publishing) – The X-Files spin-off gets its own comic series. It was an underrated television series, and I expect an awesome comic adaptation.

Zombies vs Robots #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s popular book series comes to comics in an ongoing series. It’s zombies fighting robots people!

Edward

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A noirish detective story, but set in the aftermath of the Iraq War.  Someone or something is killing people in a gruesome fashion on the oil fields, but a cover-up threatens the investigators from getting to the truth.  The story bills itself as Zero Dark Thirty meets The Thing and seems to be living up to it.

Dark Horse Presents #6 (Dark Horse) – This series flies a little below the radar, but channels the same creative concepts behind a lot of earlier comics (DC’s Showcase from the 1960s.)  Some of the stories are doomed to fail, but some are destined for the Dark Horse universe.  This issue has both sci-fi time travel and some undead fighting heroes.

Zombies vs. Robots #1 (IDW Publishing) – The launch of the first ongoing series which proved that the medium of comics is not tired of zombies yet, this time as the small handful of human survivors has to deal with competing post apocalypse scenarios.  And speaking of zombies…

Wonder Woman #38 (DC Comics) – It it only two issues into their run, but the Finches have been very divisive so far, both in terms of their comments to the direction of the character and in the output of the comics. Will Wonder Woman’s return to mainstream DC find firm ground or crash and burn?

Zombie Tramp #6 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – It is still hard to know what to make of this series, but it is usually entertaining even if you owe your brain an apology in the end.

Evan

Holy F*ck #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This is a hilarious low-brow title with very well delivered religious satire. I can completely get behind this foul-mouthed stoner who’s-bisexual messiah.

The Valiant #2 (Valiant) – The art in this in issue is beautifully executed. I normally don’t like when I can’t tell which author was writing for each page but the art provided a smooth transition page to page.

George

Amazing Spider-Man #13 (Marvel Comics) – The latest story arc for Spidey is coming to a close and it’s the best one yet by Dan Slott.

Burning Fields #1 (BOOM! Comics) – Military horror mystery by Moreci, Daniel and Lorimer set in the Middle East. The story combines a dishonorably discharged military investigator with a mythic evil set in an already fragile locale. The story sounds amazing and the art looks fantastic.

Powers #1 (Marvel Comics/Icon) – Since the announcement of the TV Show this has been a much anticipated comic. Plus, Brian Michael Bendis is one of the best story-tellers out there. Powers #1 is a perfect jumping-on point for anyone interested n this Eisner Award winning tale.

Reyn #1 (Image Comics) – Kel Symons is building a fantasy world that sounds as amazing as the art by Nathan Stockman. If you’re looking for a new Comic Book to add to your pull list this is definitely one you should add and keep up with.

Rumble #2 (Image Comics) – If you haven’t already picked up, and read, Rumble #1 then do so immediately. This story has such a compelling plot that I couldn’t put it down before I read it and re-read it over and over again. We have yet to learn much of the backstory for the protagonist, but that’s a good thing.

Jesse

Borderlands: Fall of Fyrestone #6 & Borderlands TP Vol. 2 Fall of Fyrestone (IDW Publishing) – Borderlands is among my favorite games out there. I would be honored to review their comic line

Cartoon Network Super Secret Crisis War TP Vol. 1 (IDW Publishing) – These cartoons are my childhood. Seeing them come together is always good entertainment for me.

Dungeons & Dragons: Legend of Drizzt TP Vol. 1 Homeland (IDW Publishing) – After 15 years of Dungeons and Dragons experience of being both a player and Dungeon Master, DnD and (especially) anything with Drizzt would be among my top options.

Iron Man Epic Collection TP Stark Wars (Marvel) – I’m a huge Iron Man fan and would love to get my hands on some Iron Man comics to review and discuss in a large scale review.

Legendary Star-Lord #8Legendary Star-Lord TP Vol. 1 Face It I Rule, Rocket Raccoon #7 (Marvel) – A huge Marvel fan and a huge fan of the Guardians. I’d love anything from Guardians of the Galaxy, but especially them on their own.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

multiversityWednesdays 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! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Pick of the Week: Multiversity #1 (DC Comics) – Writer Grant Morrison explores the 52 alternative Earths that make up the DC Multiverse.

The Delinquents #1 (Valiant) – Take two of Valiant’s most entertaining teams and have them get together for a story about hobos and a map on an ass. The first issue is fantastic, especially for fans of Archer & Armstrong and Quantum & Woody.

Genius #3 (Top Cow Productions) – The series is four years in the making, and it seems like there couldn’t be a better time for its release. The story focuses on a brilliant mind who uses her tactical brilliance to unite the gangs of LA.

The Strain: Night Eternal #1 (Dark Horse) – The third, and final, volume in the book turned comic turned television series. The television series has been picked up for a second season, so get ahead of the story!

Week in Review: July 22-28, 2013

I hope everyone’s finally recovered from the intensity of SDCC and all of the incredible announcements that came out of the con. Our very own Brett, your host and founder of Graphic Policy, was in attendance and helped keep us up to date (you can find his posts and updates on SDCC here). This week saw the debut of The Wolverine, origin-story sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and in comics we got a little more light cast on the events of Age of Ultron via Hunger #1, witnessed the start of a new crowd favorite Lobster Johnson mini-series, and took a look at the ever-advancing Trinity War saga, along with plenty of other reviews of one-shots, on-going series, and even a graphic novel!

Graphic Policy Radio

July 23, 2013—Elana and Brett cover the glorious Nerd-vana of SDCC, and they take a look at the convention floor, its announcements, and some of the people Brett had a chance to meet. We had some technical issues, so catch the show this coming week.

Comic Reviews

Batman/Superman #2—the second issue in Greg Pak’s and Jae Lee’s already fantastic series gets relatively high marks from Sean, despite the fact that it’s still a tad confusing…

Batwoman #22—Scott picks apart the latest Batwoman issue, and poses some interesting points about where the series is going and why this issue is hollow compared to the rest of the series.

Blood Brothers #1—a new vampire comedy, with a taste of something different gets high ranks; worth buying and reading.

Dark Horse Presents #26—an awesomely (and somewhat overwhelmingly) large anthology of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy comic shorts, featuring reviews of two of many stories.

Devil Executioner One-Shota thrilling and creepy one-shot by UK independent creator Martin Ian Smith, which could easily be the beginning of a serious about a bad-ass exorcist. Buying and reading this is a great way to support a young, up-and-coming comic creator!

Gamma One-Shot—a zany, hilarious comic by Ulises Farinas which Sean reads as a satire of some awesome 1990s children franchises.

Hunger #1—Brett takes us on a tour of Fialkov’s exploration of the long-established Ultimate universe as things get down and dirty with…Galactus!

Justice League Dark #22—Trinity War continues in what Sean found to be the second-best piece in this saga (we’re only five parts in, with the Constantine and Pandora tie-ins, and JLA #6 seems to be the best), seeing all of the Justice Leagues rearranged by their loyalties to the World’s Finest and to the Trinity of Sin.

King Conan: Tee Hour of the Dragon #3—Andrew gives us a look at this acclaimed addition to the Conan franchise, hearkening back to the sword-and-sorcery quality of early Conan comics.

Lazarus #2—Scott provides an in-depth review of Greg Rucka’s hot-and-heavy sci-fi dystopic comic; get on board with this if you haven’t yet!

Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #1—the much anticipated beginning of a new Lobster Johnson mini-series by Mignola gets high praise from Andrew, as a new plot develops with the Tong assassins in a definitely pulp style.

The Massive #14—hot shot Brian Wood continues his sci-fi series, which Brett calls “one of the best monthly series on the market.”

Mind MGMT #13—a surreal one-shot about The Home Maker sleeper agent, which featuring some of the best art this week (I took a look at this myself, and damn it’s great looking).

Movie Review

The Wolverine—I haven’t seen it myself, but Brett (ever our movie reviewer for all things comics and nerdom) found The Wolverine to be a good addition to the X-Men movies, despite finding it a tad boring and predictable. But see for yourself, folks!

Graphic Novel Review

Hellboy: House of the Living Dead—Sean looks back on a two-year old Mignola and Corben graphic novel that takes a look at Hellboy as a luchador, as well as a nod to the great monster films of the early 20th century.

Well that’ll just about do it for this week. Check out our reviews, updates, news, info, and previews, because there’s always more coming! See you next week, Geeks!
