The History of Science Fiction Vol. 1

(W) Xavier Dollo (A) Djibril Morrisette
In Shops: Nov 24, 2021
SRP: $29.99

A graphic novel with illustrated text that traces, in detail, the history of a literary genre, from the 1800s to present day.

For the first time in illustrated form, this comprehensive history of science fiction traces its origins and, in fascinating detail, charts its history from its beginnings as a “schlock” genre to its respected status today. Who was the first author to write a science fiction story? How did American science fiction begin? What SF novel is the world’s best-seller? What were the “pulps,” and how did they predict with uncanny accuracy the 21st Century world around us? These are just some of the questions answered in chapters dedicated to the founding mothers and fathers of the genre and the creations to which they gave birth. More than just a simple history lesson, THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE FICTION is a thoughtful and analytical reflection on the genre itself.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Black Panther #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.

American Comics: A History (WW Norton) – Professor Jeremy Dauber takes readers through the history of American comics starting with the Civil War through modern times. It’s 150 years of history.

Black Panther #1 (Marvel) – John Ridley takes over Black Panther and we’re beyond excited.

DC vs. Vampires #2 (DC Comics) – It’s the latest apocalyptic spin with DC superheroes and the first issue was a solid build up with a really good unexpected twist.

Deathstroke Inc. #3 (DC Comics) – The series has been a solid take on the character without him going the “hero” route. He’s the asshole we love to see what he does next.

Harbinger #2 (Valiant) – The first issue was a solid debut that worked well for long-time fans of the characters and a jumping on point for new readers.

Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #1 (Marvel) – With a high-profile debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kate Bishop is getting a new series that should be perfect for new readers.

The History of Science Fiction Vol. 1 (Humanoids) – What will be covered and what will be left out? We want to see what gets the spotlight in this graphic novel that covers the genre from the 1800s to present day.

House of Slaughter #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Something is Killing the Children has been a hit and we’re watching this spin-off series to see if it can repeat the magic.

Hulk #1 (Marvel) – After an epic run, where do things go? We’ll find out soon!

Joy Operations #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Brian Michael Bendis brings his talent to Dark Horse with a new creator-owned series through his Jinxworld imprint.

Serial #8 (Abstract Studio) – The series has been growing on us as Zoe has been getting closer and closer to figuring out what’s going on with the serial killer Jenny and we learn more about Jenny’ motivations.

Task Force Z #2 (DC Comics) – The concept shouldn’t work but the first issue proved it can! Red Hood leads a team of revived “zombie” villains.

Lugosi: The Rise & Fall of Hollywood’s Dracula

(W) Koren Shadmi (A) Koren Shadmi
In Shops: Sep 29, 2021
SRP: $24.99

As horror cinema’s most iconic actor, Bela Lugosi is forever remembered for his haunting role as Count Dracula, frightening filmgoers for many years. But once the cameras finally stopped rolling…that’s when Lugosi himself learned what true terror was.

Beginning with his early life in Hungary as a young actor and activist, this first-of-its-kind graphic memoir details Lugosi’s flight from his homeland after becoming an enemy of the state and his eventual move to the US, where his career flourished-for a while. Following a pivotal career mistake that allowed Boris Karloff’s star to rise while his plummeted, Lugosi’s pride, extravagant lifestyle, and addiction to drugs, women, and the high life led to his tragic decline and humiliating later years that saw him join forces with infamous B-movie director Ed Wood for one last shot at stardom.
