If/Then: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

resident-evil-the-final-chapterWhen it comes to suggesting comics for individuals to check out, it’s often good to start with what they like in other media like television, movies, books, or video games. Enter If/Then, where we’ll throw out suggestions for you to check out!

Returning to theaters this weekend is the kick-ass Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

The human race’s last hope against apocalyptic obliteration is super soldier Alice (Milla Jovovich), but she’s been stripped of her psychic powers. She must form alliances and rally survivors in Raccoon City for the climactic battle against the Umbrella Corporation and its ravenous hordes of the undead. This sixth installment of the video game-inspired franchise is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

So, we’ve got a zombie flick headed up by a kick-ass female lead. I think we’ve got some comics that can fill that niche. If you want to know what you should check out, find out below.


resident-evilResident Evil (Manga by Viz Media) – Did you know there’s Resident Evil comics? The highly virulent C-virus became a global disaster, but where did the outbreak start? In this prequel to the hit Resident Evil 6 game, the terrifying origins are revealed.

Published by Viz Media, this manga series will keep you entertained and immersed in the world of Resident Evil. If you love the video games and the movie then you should absolutely check these manga out to find out what you’ve been missing. Each volume perfectly captures and extends the world on the printed page.

The Walking Dead (Skybound Entertainment/Image Comics) – Yes, there’s a television series, but before that, there was a comic series. For well over 100 issues the story of Rick, Carl, Michonne, and more has been chronicled in shocking and gory detail.

This one is for fans of the zombie aspect of the movie and video game series it differs enough from the television series that you’ll be kept on your toes and is more gory and unrestrained.

Monstress01_CoverDC Comics Bombshells (DC Comics) – If you like the idea of kick-ass women, this comic series might be for you if you’re also into superheroes. Set in an alternative world this series takes inspiration from bombshell/pin-up art putting the women front and center as the world’s superheroes. What has me including this comic series on the list is its strong feminist leads and it’s women saving the day, much like Alice. Entertaining and action-packed, it’s a solid alternative for those looking for a world where women are the ones doing the punching, taking the lead, and the ones saving it.

Buffy, the Vampire Slayer (Dark Horse) – Numerous volumes have been released bringing the popular character from television to comics. Released as seasons, the comics act as a continuation of the world made popular on the small screen. Replace zombies with demons and vampires and you’ve got a more teen-friendly take on a similar story.

Monstress (Image Comics) – Steampunk meets Kaiju in this original fantasy epic for mature readers, as young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces. A horror fantasy series full of monsters and magic is as jaw dropping beautiful to look at as it is engaging to read.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

old_man_logan__16Wednesdays 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.

Alex

Top Pick: A&A: The Adventures Of Archer And Armstrong #11 (Valiant) – The penultimate issue of a series that frequently had me laughing, I’m lookng forward to seeing how Rafer Roberts starts to wrap this crazy sixteen issue run up.

Deadpool The Duck #1 (Marvel) – I’m honestly expecting this to be a so-bad-it’s-awesome comic.

Faith #7 (Valiant) – Jody Houser has been consistently fantastic on this comic, and the revolving cast or artists have also been pretty damn awesome, too. This issue sees both the start of a new story and a new artist joining Houser and Marguerte Sauvage, Joe Eisma. I’m always excited to read this comic.

Old Man Logan #16 (Marvel) – I’ve been a fan of Wolverine since before I was a fan of comics, and this is one of the few Marvel comics I rush to get every Wednesday. Lately it hasn’t quite been as good as I want it to be… but this is a new year, and a new arc.

The Unworthy Thor #3 (Marvel) – Jason Aaron writes a redemption story for the Odinson, after he lost his hammer at the end of Original Sin, and I’m looking forward to seeing where he takes it – it already looks like Odinson won’t get his old hammer back (what with that being in the hands of Jane Foster), which was my main concern for this arc.

 

Shay

Top Pick: Wynonna Earp Legends: Doc Holiday #2 (IDW Publishing) – Doc’s enemies are coming out of the woodwork leaving Doc and Wynonna in one hell of a fight with Doc’s past.

Harley Quinn #11 (DC Comics) – The latest arc ( Joker Loves Harley) starts in this issue. All those little reminders that have been popping up in the last 10 issues are leading Harley into an elaborate plot courtesy of Mr. J. I see a love triangle brewing because I don’t see Red Tool giving up without a fight.

Big Trouble in Little China/Escape From New York #4 (BOOM! Studios) – Snake and Jack go undercover in David Lo Pan’s army.

Justice League vs Suicide Squad #3 (DC Comics) – Amanda drops a truth bomb and the battle rages on. I’m not sure who to root for but, I’m looking forward to seeing it all play out.

Old Man Logan #16 ( Marvel) – This rescue mission went all kinds of wrong and Logan finds himself back in the Wasteland.

DC Comics Bombshells #21 (DC Comics) – A glimpse into Cheetah’s past while the rest of the ladies search for more mechanical gods.

 

Joe

Top Pick: Blood Blister #1 (Aftershock) – A new series from Aftershock. That sentence has translated into some of my favorite comics of 2016 with Animosity, Shipwreck and more. Here’s hoping for another hit!

Batman #14 (DC Comics) – More Cat and Bat before we get to “I Am Bane”. I cannot wait to see what King has in store for their back and forth “relationship”, and the messes it will get them in.

Superman #14 (DC Comics) – It looks like we are finally going to be getting some answers soon with Mr. Oz, the other Clark in Action Comics and what everything from Rebirth means. This issue looks like it could be fun, and could start the ball rolling toward more answers.

The Unworthy Thor #3 (Marvel) – So far, so good for the limited series featuring Odinson trying to get his groove back. I am keeping an eye on this and see what will happen and what it will mean for Jane.

The Wicked + The Divine #25 (Image) – After another cliffhanger issue, I can’t wait to see if what I think happened, just happened. Such a great series.

 

Brett

Top Pick: The Unstoppable Wasp #1 (Marvel) – I’ve read the first issue and it’s just tons of fun. From the writing to the art, it’s hard to read this debut and not have a smile on your face. But, the comic not just is entertaining it also promotes kick-ass women in science with a cool feature in the letters page. It’s a great comic to kick off 2017.

The Fall and Rise of Captain Atom #1 (DC Comics) – I’ve dug what DC has done in recent years with the character and I was intrigued to see what this limited series would bring. Having read the first issue, it’s solid.

The Flintstones #7 (DC Comics) – Some of the best social commentary out there.

Justice League of America: The Atom #1 (DC Comics) –  I know nothing about the new Atom and since he’s a member of the new Justice League of America I’m looking forward to diving into this issue to get caught up.

Transformers: Optimus Prime #2 (IDW Publishing) – I love me some Transformers and watching not just the action but the politics that play out in this series focused on Optimus’ annexation of Earth has me even more excited.

SDCC 2016: DC Comics Bombshells 7” Collectibles Pre-Release

Cryptozoic Entertainment and DC Entertainment are proud to announce the pre-release of Series 1 of the DC Comics Bombshells Vinyl Figures at San Diego Comic-Con. The 7” figures will be available at Cryptozoic’s booth (#115) before receiving a full nationwide release later this summer.

DC Bombshells originated as a series of statues inspired by 1940s pinup art and dieselpunk and featuring some of DC Comics’s greatest female characters. Debuting in 2013 with Wonder Woman, the series has become a runaway success with collectors and an inspiration to cosplayers. The statues were followed in 2015 by the DC Bombshells comic book series, which reimagines DC’s history by placing its heroines and notorious villainesses at the center of World War II, in the process drawing attention to the changing roles of women in that era. Now, DC Bombshells star in this exciting new line of vinyl figures from Cryptozoic Entertainment.

Series 1 of Cryptozoic’s DC Comics Bombshells includes several fan favorites: the mighty Amazonian princess Wonder Woman, the cute and crazy Harley Quinn, and the ever cunning and crafty Catwoman. Inspired by Ant Lucia’s illustrations and the DC Bombshells comics, these stylized figurines are approximately 7” tall and were designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg.

Fans looking to collect all three of these DC Comics Bombshells Vinyl Figures—Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and Catwoman—can purchase them at Cryptozoic’s booth (#115) at San Diego Comic-Con and, starting later this summer, at comic book stores, bookstores, and board game and specialty retailers, with a suggested retail price of $29.99.
