Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

GCPD: Blue Wall #4

Wednesdays (and 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.

Barbaric: Hell to Pay #1 (Vault Comics) – More Barbaric? Yes please! The series has been amazing off the rails fantasy.

Bomb (Roaring Brook Press) – The story of the development of the nuclear bomb.

Chicken Devils #2 (AfterShock) – A gang is now pissed about the lies our favorite fast food restaurant has been telling. More bodies will pile up in what’s sure to be insane violence!

GCPD: Blue Wall #4 (DC Comics) – The series has been amazing showing the gray and difficulty of being a part of the GCPD.

I Hate Fairyland #3 (Image Comics) – The series has been the full of the over the top violence we’ve been expecting and loved. Here’s hoping it keeps up its balance of insanity.

Immortal Sergeant #1 (Image Comics) – On the eve of his unwelcome retirement, Jim Sargent (aka “Sarge”) a grizzled, old-school detective, catches a break on a murder case that’s haunted him for decades.

Maniac of New York: Don’t Call It a Comeback #1 (AfterShock) – The previous two volumes have been amazing with their riff on classic slasher horror.

Vanity #3 (Scout Comics/Black Caravan) – The true story about Elizabeth Bathory, the Blood Countess. This one’s focused on the legendary witch hunts of 15th century Europe and their impact on Bathory.

White Savior #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – it’s up to Japanese-American teacher Todd Parker to warn the good people of Inoki of Nathan Garin’s true nature before he causes the very death and destruction they are counting on him to avert!

Around the Tubes

The Beat – More on AfterShock bankruptcy, Heavy Metal restructuring and Dead Reckoning publishing – More details on the meltdowns.

Publisher’s Weekly – Indie Comics Publishers Face Year-End Financial Troubles – Absolutely the story of the year.

CBR – James Gunn Is Working With Jim Lee to Better Coordinate DC Studios and Comics – This, honestly, never really seemed like a big issue. Definitely can be improved, but there was clearly coordination before.

The Mary Sue – How ‘Naruto’ and a PETA Court Case Could Strike a Blow Against AI Art – Good points.

I Hate Fairyland #2

Review: I Hate Fairyland #2

I Hate Fairyland #2

Gert is down on her luck. She does have some highly needed knowledge, she knows Fairyland. She’s been offered a job, head to that world and bring back the son of a very wealthy man. But, as we see in I Hate Fairyland #2, the mission is more complicated and there’s much more at play here.

Skottie Young continues the misadventures of his foulmouthed antisocial heroine as she’s given offer she can’t refuse. Literally, she has nothing else going for her. This is pretty much it. But, the offer is from a billionaire who has more sinister wants from her mission. All of it comes together for another issue full of low brow humor that’s like Looney Tunes on drugs… and really funny.

I Hate Fairyland #2 wears everything about itself on its sleeve. It’s an over-the-top hack and slash-ish story that has no trouble of dropping a censored swear and insult and playing off it’s saccharine infused sweetness. It’s putting the Punisher into Wonderland and letting him go nuts. Things are going to die and do so in brutal ways and that’s part of the entertainment. Young knows that and anyone who has read the series does too. This issue is more focused on the setup though as we learn why Gert has been chosen, what she brings to the table, and clearly she’s going to be double-crossed at some point.

The insanity is delivered through the art of Brett Bean which continues the goofiness of the original series. Bean is joined by Jean-Francois Beaulieu on color and lettering by Nate Piekos and the trio emphasizes the over-the-top nature of it all. Everything is exaggerated, as it should be. This isn’t some grounded story, this is one where the hero wields weapons twice her size and creates bloody mayhem with it. Exaggeration is the name of the game and the visuals nails that down perfectly in every way.

I Hate Fairyland #2 continues that line of humor that goes back to Looney Tunes and then fed drugs in Ren & Stimpy until it’s stretched further today. This is a comic where everything is so amplified that it becomes part of the joke, if not the joke. Everything emphasizes that, things are taken to the extreme. It’s the exact type of silly escape so many of us need and only comics can deliver.

Traveling to Mars #2

Wednesdays (and 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.

Breath of the Giant (Fairsquare Comics) – Legends say the North is the home of Giants whose breath can bring the dead back to life. Sisters Iris and Sophia, decide to go on a quest to steal this breath in order to resuscitate their dearly departed mother

Dark Web: Ms. Marvel #1 (Marvel) – The event has been interesting so far and we’re intrigued to see how Ms. Marvel fits into all of it.

Dead Seas #1 (IDW Publishing) – Ghosts are real and dangerous. Their ectoplasm is also able to cure diseases. The concept is unique and original and we already have a glowing review of it.

GCPD: The Blue Wall #3 (DC Comics) – Writer John Ridley has been exploring the tough job that is the GCPD as well as its corruption. It’s like the best television cop show in comic form.

Ghost Planet (Scout Comics) – A family of deep space explorers rushes to solve the mystery of Ghost Planet before their recently-dead loved ones return to kill them next!

I Hate Fairyland #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue is exactly what we were expecting with violence, rudeness, and some great art. It’s Looney Tunes violence in a fantasy world and a perfect comic to escape in to during these cold months.

Junior #1 (Scout Comics) – What’s a young space marine supposed to do when a rogue asteroid slams into the space station she was sent to repair? Well, she grabs her alien, hippo-like sidekick and she crash lands on a dinosaur-infested planet-that’s what she does!

Les Miserables Omnibus Vol. 1 (Seven Seas Entertainment) – We’re suckers for anything Les Miserables.

Traveling to Mars #2 (Ablaze) – The first issue was fantastic, about the first man to go to Mars. He was chosen because he has terminal cancer and it’s a one way trip anyways. The series does a great job of mixing sci-fi and satire.

Image announces a trio of Second Printings

Image Comics has announced that three bestelling series will be fast-tracked for reprints in order to keep up with escalating customer demand—Skottie Young and Brett Bean’s I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s The Bone Orchard Mythos: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #2, and Wes Craig’s Kaya #2. All three reprints will land on shelves this December.

In Skottie Young and Brett Bean’s I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, everyone’s favorite green-haired axe-wielding crazed maniac returns in this Deadpool meets Alice In Wonderland-style adventure! Gert is all grown up and living in the real world. Times are tough and the only job she’s qualified for has her trying to find her way back to the place she hates the most…Fairyland.

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino expand their shared horror universe of titles, The Bone Orchard Mythos, with Ten Thousand Black Feathers. In issue #2, Trish and Jackie are pulled deeper into the fantasy world they’ve created. But the terrors of the real world are difficult to separate and their teenage daydreams are proving to be equally dangerous.

In Wes Craig’s Kaya #2, Kaya has formed an uneasy alliance with the Lizard-Riders. But will a flash flood and a dangerous hunt for food with the treacherous Zothan push Kaya past her breaking point?

I Hate Fairyland (2022) #1, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229024), The Bone Orchard Mythos: Ten Thousand Black Feathers #2, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229025), and Kaya #2, second printing (Diamond Code SEP229026) will all be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 21.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

ACCIDENTAL CZAR

Wednesdays (and 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.

Accidental Czar: Life & Lies of Vladimir Putin (First Second) – With everything that’s going on, this is a fantastic graphic novel to teach you about Vladimir Putin and some Russian history. It’s written by a former White House Russia expert and delivers a very even handed take on history and what lead to today.

Blade: Vampire Nation #1 (Marvel) – Blade as well as the Vampire Nation have been somewhat quiet recently but left with some much potential. Here’s hoping we get a solid story that does it all justice. A nation of vampires with lots of political intrigue sounds like too much fun.

By the Horns: Dark Earth #6 (Scout Comics) – We’ve loved this fantasy series. Don’t miss out on it and if you haven’t been reading it since the first issue, go start from the beginning!

Dino Mighty: Law and Odor (Clarion Books) – We’ve loved this series of dinosaur heroes. It’s meant for kids but adults will enjoy it too.

Einstein (First Second) – It’s the story of Einstein! Learn about the amazing person who has defined so much but how much do we know about his personal life?

GCPD: Blue Wall #2 (DC Comics) – Writer John Ridley explores policing in the GCPD. Ridley’s exploration of the DCU has been amazing so far including this series’ debut issue.

I Hate Fairyland #1 (Image Comics) – Over the top insanity is back!

Kepler (Dark Horse) – A graphic novel from David Duchovny? Yeah, we’re intrigued.

Maker Comics: How to Design a Game (First Second) – Step-by-step instructions for six tabletop game design projects!

Murderworld: Avengers #1 (Marvel) – We love a good story featuring the villain Arcade who doesn’t seem to get the use and respect he deserves

Rogue State #1 (Black Mask Studios) – A Presidential election plunges the country into crisis from which a mysterious figure rises, but is she a freedom fighter or a terrorist?

Terry’s Crew (Little Brown Books for Young Readers) – Terry Crews digs into his childhood in Detroit in his debut graphic novel.
