Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Mazebook #2

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.

Batman: The Imposter #1 (DC Comics) – It’s early on in Batman’s career and there’s a second Batman on the rooftops and this one has no problem with murdering criminals.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #9 (Archie Comics/Archie Horror) – We still can’t believe this is finally out and we have a review copy. It feels like forever.

Deadbox #2 (Vault Comics) – Mark Russell is a brilliant satirist and this series is no exception.

I Am Batman #2 (DC Comics) – Jace Fox has been an interesting new Batman and write John Ridley has focused on delivering motivation and depth to the character along with a style of crime fighting that makes the character stand out.

Kang the Conqueror #3 (Marvel) – This is your life Kang! The series has been putting together the rather complicated history of Kang and giving us some interesting new insight into the character.

Mazebook #2 (Dark Horse Comics) – A heavy read focused on a father who has lost his daughter. The first issue was a punch to the gut and we’re expecting much of the same.

No One Left to Fight II #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Kung-fu over-the-top action.

Science Comics: Whales (First Second) – Always fun. Always education. Great for parents and kids alike!

Star Trek: Mirror War #1 (IDW Publishing) – We’re always up for a trip into Star Trek’s Mirror Universe.

Telepaths #2 (AWA Studios) – The first issue was a nice setup of a world where a large portion gains telepathic powers. What that means for the world seems to be the exploration of the series and we’re intrigued by the concept.

Marvel Sends Four Comics Back to Print

Four of Marvel’s hottest titles will be getting new printings! These currently sold out hit issues will be hitting stands on October 27. Complete with new covers, these exciting new printings will give fans a chance to dive into some of Marvel’s biggest current stories!

Writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing and artist Carlos Magno continue to unravel the true origins of one of Marvel’s most complex villains in Kang the Conqueror #2. A young, rebellious and idealistic Kang finds himself in Ancient Egypt, where an older version of himself is ruling with an iron fist as the pharaoh Rama-Tut.

Kang the Conqueror #2

Writer Jed MacKay and artist Alessandro Cappuccio’s critically acclaimed hit run on one of Marvel’s most fascinating super heroes continues in Moon Knight #3 where Moon Knight faces off against a mysterious new enemy. Moon Knight has taken on Khonshu’s duty as his own. To the people he protects, this is a blessing. To Hunter’s Moon, this is sacrilege. It is no small thing, to betray a god and take on his role. And when the Fist of Khonshu offers shelter to vampires, the ancient enemies of the Moon God? The Moon Knight requires correction, and Hunter’s Moon will bring him back to the right path — whatever it might take. Check out the new cover by Steve McNiven.

Moon Knight #3 2nd Printing

Witness the final chapter of Stephen Strange in Death of Doctor Strange #1 by writer Jed MacKay and artist Lee Garbett. He defends our planet from the supernatural and interdimensional threats no other hero is equipped to handle. But what happens when he unexpectedly dies?

From the looks of the new second printing cover, this mystery is just beginning…

Death of Doctor Strange #1 2nd printing

And tensions were raised in X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #2 by writer Leah Williams and artist Lucas Werneck. When the Avengers come to Krakoa to retrieve the body of their fallen teammate, the Scarlet Witch, an epic fight between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Magneto. And with a shocking final page, this mutant murder mystery just got a whole lot more complicated! The second printing features a cover by Valerio Schiti.

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.

Batman ’89 #2 (DC Comics) – It’s been fun going back to the “film universe” of Batman and we want to see where it goes, especially with what has been hinted at.

Batman: The World (DC Comics) – Batman stories from creative teams from around the world in a new anthology.

Black Widow #11 (Marvel) – This series has delivered with every issue. It mixes great action, with real emotion, and the sexiness this sort of “spy” story can deliver. It’s just perfect entertainment.

Campisi #2 (AfterShock) – The mob vs. dragon. That’s all you really need to know about this one.

Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 (Marvel) – The Eternals have been shaken up in their own series delivering a story that makes them “A” level in the Marvel Universe. What this spin-off brings to the table has us intrigued.

Hellboy & the BPRD 1957 Family Ties (Dark Horse) – Hellboy is always fun. This one-shot focuses on an unwanted house guest that Hellboy and BPRD agent Susan Xiang need to take care of.

I Am Batman #1 (DC Comics) – John Ridley has been delivering an interesting take on the next Batman with a story that features a lot of emotion and depth.

Kang the Conqueror #2 (Marvel) – The first issue did a solid job of streamlining the character’s convoluted history. We’re excited to see where this second issue goes as a young Kang begins to confront his different versions in a twisted version of “this is your life”.

MAW #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What happens when one woman becomes the real monster society has always made her out to be? That alone has us intrigued to read this one.

Nobody’s Child #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Albino rhinos have a genetic code that holds the properties to regenerate man. This leads to their near extinction. This is the story of a boy who decides to dedicate his life to protecting this rhino.

Primordial #1 (Image Comics) – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino launch this new series about some of the animal test subjects during the early years of the space program. The animals never came back… they were taken and all of these years later, they’re coming home.

Stray Dogs (Image Comics) – If you missed this series as individual issues, you need to get the trade. It’s a murder mystery from the perspective of the dogs that might have witnessed it. Amazing art and full of tension.

Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story (DC Comics) – A new take on Jessica Cruz’s origin story. We’re fans of the character and interested in seeing what new ideas can be done with her.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a good introduction to this faction and the world delivering solid art and action. Individuals who enjoy a straightforward “space marine kills alien” type story should check this out.

X-Men: Trial of Magneto #2 (Marvel) – The debut was full of emotion as the attempt to figure out who killed the Scarlet Witch began. But, we’re expecting a lot of twists and turns before this one is over.

Review: Kang the Conqueror #1

Kang the Conqueror #1
Mike Del Mundo

Lets be honest, Kang the Conqueror has a rather convoluted history when it comes to Marvel Comics. Alternate versions, fractured timelines, variants… Cable might be the only character whose history is crazier. With the character getting the spotlight, it’s no surprise that he’s getting a series for himself and one that looks to try to streamline his history. Or is that future? Maybe present? Kang the Conqueror #1 kicks things off in a story that takes us through the basics that we know and have generally been consistent.

Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly have the unenviable (maybe it’s enviable to them) to make sense of the rather convoluted history of Kang. The duo sticks to the basics with this debut issue. A weary, older Kang contacts a younger version of himself and takes him through a messed up version of “this is your life”. We learn the failures… and failures of Kang as he teaches his younger self where he messed up and what lessons need to be learned.

There’s something rather relatable to readers. It takes on the concept of what advice we’d give our younger self and takes it to an extreme. Lanzing and Kelly also deliver a solid amount of emotion. We can understand the hurt of the older Kang, especially for those who themselves have failed. In some ways it feels like it streamlines things in some ways. Try reading a wiki entry on the characters and you’ll understand what I mean.

The art by Carlos Magno is solid. The issue takes us through time so different settings. Different technology. The art handles it very well and all of it looks like it’s the same world. The far future and far past feel like they fit together. Magno also has some solid page layouts. There’s pages and spreads that’ll have you lingering on the pages just to take in the layout. What really surprises is how well the art pops as far as the emotion of the issue. It nails the rollercoaster of a ride between the two main characters. The color by Espen Grundethern and lettering by Joe Caramagna helps with that emotional ups and downs.

Kang the Conqueror #1 is a solid debut. It takes a rather complicated history and streamlines it in some ways. Add in some actual emotional ups and downs and you get a comic that’s a solid ride and entertaining. Where the series goes will be intriguing but right now even if it’s a comic version of “this is your life”, it’s a series that’ll be worth picking up just to understand Kang’s history.
