MALL MADNESS!

How can Patsy be spending this much time with Jubilee and NOT go to the mall? Will they swing by the food court? Catch a movie? Have a fashion montage? Certainly no villains will be there. What would a villain possibly be doing at the mall??

Graphic Policy Celebrates Women’s History Month: Our Favorite Women in Comics

patsy walker aka hellcat 1 featuredLogan: Kate Leth, Brittney Williams, Megan Wilson, and Rachelle Rosenberg’s Hellcat has been a joyful celebration of superheroes, young people, and queerness. I will miss its humor, chibi style art, and especially my bi bae Ian Soo when it ends in a couple months.

faith-8-feat

Alex: Faith (Valiant) I really can’t understate just how enjoyable this series is. There have definitely been some issues stronger than others, but each and every one in the ongoing series (and preceding miniseries) has been nothing short of a pleasure to read.

Jody Houser, Marguerite Sauvage and the revolving cast of artists have taken Faith to stunning heights in an effortlessly charming and warm series that will make you fall in love with comics all over again.

black-panther-world-of-wakanda-4-featured

Shay: Gail Simone brings me LIFE! As does Roxane Gay! And I’m really loving Amanda Conner and her hubby’s direction for Harley Quinn! Also, loving Marguerite Bennett for the realistic portrayal of lesbians in Batwoman!

animosity3

Joe: One of the best titles in the last year is Animosity from Aftershock. This fantastic story is written by Marguerite Bennett who has taken the comic book world by storm lately, and drawn by Rafael de Latorre. Basically, society has collapsed when animals can talk and decide to take over the world from humanity. Instead of a boy and his dog adventure like we’ve seen so many times, we get a girl and her dog. Jesse and her hound, Sandor are not only an awesome pair, but the story is about Jesse’s growth into womanhood without a mother figure. Sandor knows he cannot help like her mother could, but he learns to rely on the other female animals to guide her. It’s brilliant, and everyone should be reading it.

nocenti-daredevil

Patrick: Ann Nocenti’s run on Daredevil blew my mind when it was coming out. It was so different from what I’d been used to seeing from Denny O’Neil and Frank Miller – a strange urban poetry that was as close to magic realism as I’d ever seen in mainstream comics. With an off-kilter humor – the Human Torch showing up in a tight t-shirt reading “Bad!” – twisted romance, and psychodrama. Her writing was like nothing else on the stands.

A huge thanks to the editors and publishers behind the scenes who made a ton of great comics happen: Jenette Kahn, cat yronwode, Diana Schutz, Louise Jones/Simonson, Ann Nocenti, Shelly Bond, Alisa Kwitney, and most especially the inestimable Karen Berger.

Troy: It was a bit short lived, but I think there was a Defender’s title by Cullen Bunn about Valkyrie being tasked with assembling Midgard’s Valkyrie. Fear Itself the Fearless was kind of the prelude series to that. I really would have loved to see this series fleshed out.

monstress #5 featured

Madison: It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Monstress and Bitch Planet. They’re not for everyone, but they’re two of my go-to recommendations for people who love science fiction or fantasy. Elizabeth Breitweiser, Rachelle Rosenberg, and Jordie Bellaire consistently blow me away with their incredible colors.

Brett: I’m slightly obsessed with M. Goodwin’s Tomboy which is published by Action Lab: Danger Zone. The series follows a teenage girl whose best friend is murdered in a corrupt cop/conspiracy and she gets posessed by an avenging ghost in a way. Think Kick-Ass but a teenage girl in the lead and a manga influence to it all. An amazing mix of horror, action, and manga the hero Addison is a teenager that can kick ass and get some vengeance.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

FAITH_004_COVER-A_HANSWednesdays 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: Faith #4 (Valiant) – Why is this my top pick? Because it’s so bloody good! It is one of the best series you’ll read this year, and feels like this generation Spider-Man, but, you know not from Marvel. I’ve loved every issue so far, and I can’t wait for this.

Batman #51 (DC Comics) – With Bruce back in the spandex, and Superheavy concluded, I want to see where the series goes from here ahead of the Rebirth.

Old Man Logan #5 (Marvel) – After the lackluster ending to #4, I’m hoping that this issue returns to the heights of the earlier issues, but with an Old Man Logan who is slightly more accustomed to his present.

 

Patrick

Top Pick: Dark Knight III: Master Race #4 (DC Comics) – I have fond memories of reading the third issue, but it’s been so long they’re all a bit hazy now. I’m excited to see if the zig-zag narrative continues. Actually I could say a lot of sarcastic things but in the end I’m just a nerd waiting for the next issue.

X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever #3 (Marvel) – This book is fresh and amusing enough to make it a fun departure from the decades of “what the hell is going on now?” X-Men stories.

 

Paul

Top Pick: Old Man Logan #5 (Marvel) – Being one of the very few (I think) who hasn’t read the original Old Man Logan storyline, I didn’t know what to expect from this book except for knowing Logan was back and, well, old.  But WOW has this book impressed me!  Following Logan as he tries to change his future;  watching him slash his way through the bad guys; seeing him encounter people he thought long gone.  This is dark and gritty and everything a Wolverine book should be.  If you haven’t been reading, this is #5…catch up already!

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #5 (Marvel) – This is a title I didn’t think I was going to enjoy after I saw previews.  Happy to say I was wrong.  Totally not what I usually read; this is a really lighter look at the Marvel U.  It’s funny, it’s sometimes campy, it’s cartoony….It’s Patsy!  And it works.

 

Brett

Top Pick: 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank #1 (Black Mask Studios) – A fantastic debut issue that introduces us to four kids (shocker) and their father who has some bad men looking for him. The comic is all set up, but the focus on each kids personality and quirks is beyond fantastic giving each life in ways so many other comics miss.

Aliens: Defiance #1 (Dark Horse) – Today is Aliens day, but tomorrow sees a new Aliens comic hitting shelves. Dark Horse is doing some great things with the Aliens/Predator/Prometheus universe creating comics that can be read on their own, but when brought together they tell an even more entertaining story.

Chapterhouse Archives Captain Canuck #1 (Chapterhouse Comics) – It’s Captain Canuck. I’ve been loving what Chapterhouse has done with the character, so the more Captain Canuck, the better. His series is that perfect mix of fun and entertainment without the grim and gritty

Faith #4 (Valiant) – Speaking of fun and entertaining without the grim and gritty… a fantastic comic for so many reasons, one of which is the main character is a normal person in her attitude and looks. It’s great to read a comic and see someone that actually looks and acts like a real human being.

Micronauts #1 (IDW Publishing) – The classic comic characters and series is back! We’ll see how it holds up today. I’ve been looking forward to this debut since it was announced.

Alex

Top Pick: Imposter #1 (21 Pulp) – Whenever 21 Pulp put a comic out, it’s worth paying attention. They are one of, if not the most exciting new publisher around. I was lucky enough to do an advance review of this book earlier this year, and I’m so excited to get my print copy on Wednesday (my shop actually ordered in two copies because I know my friend will love it). Cannot wait to read this again in print.

Bloodshot Reborn #11 (Valiant) – The best Bloodshot story I’ve read in a while, this arc is absolutely worth your time. The art is stunning, and Jeff Lemire is on fire here. Read this; you’ll not regret it.

The Goddamned #3 (Image) – Were it not for Imposter this would be my runaway top pick this week. I’m really enjoying the pre-apocalyptic story, and Jason Aaron’s take on the biblical stories. It’s brutal, bloody, and so so good.

Judge Dredd #3 (IDW Publishing) – Judge Dredd is so far out of his element in this series, that I just can’t get enough of him trying to enforce the law in a completely lawless land. The first two issues were fantastic, so I have high hopes for  this issue.

 

Paul

Top Pick: All-New X-Men #5 (Marvel) – I wasn’t sure about this title when it was first introduced, but damn am I enjoying the ride!  I have to say I’m over Warren and his moody worrying over Laura  every issue; dude, she’s Wolverine!  She can go running into a fight and come out of it…get over it Dawson.  And I would also like it if we saw more from Evan and Idie, other then just a panel here or there, or some background action.  BUT, this is definitely one road trip I’m on board with and look forward to this title.

All-New, All-Different Avengers #6 (Marvel) – I have been less then impressed with this title, but I stick with it…not exactly sure why.  Maybe hoping something good comes out of it?  This issue promises that; we finally find out why Vision has been acting like a tool and who the mystery bad guy is pulling his strings.  I just hope the reveal delivers the goods, or I think it’s time to give up this title.

All-New Inhumans #4 (Marvel) – Another great title I’m always looking forward to.  I love this whole world outreach program for Inhumans/Nuhumans; the cast of characters is great (loving Crystal in this leadership role) and this story arc especially feels very secret agent/spy like and I’m totally digging it.

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #3 (Marvel) – I remember reading issue 1 and I was thinking “Hellcat? More like Hello Kitty”  This was so cutesy and cartoony and totally not what I usually read…but here I am putting it on my top pick list.  I like the humour in it and seeing the everyday struggle for Patsy working towards her goal.  And sure she gets some superhero time but that doesn’t drive this title, and I’m ok with that.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Snowpiercer Vol. 3 Terminus (Titan Comics) – I’m a huge fan of the Snowpiercer comic series having read the first two volumes multiple times (one of the few comics I’ve done so). This third volume is a bit of a mystery to me, and were it goes I think will be interesting. Not knowing much about it has me excited and anticipating its release.

Imposter #1 (21 Pulp) – This first issue is choppy, but really fascinating. I don’t want to reveal the twist, but it’s a superhero series and something I don’t think I’ve seen before. To put out an original idea in a flooded market is impressive on its own. 21 Pulp is a publisher that should be on everyone’s radar.

Last Man Vol 4 Chase (First Second) – I love this graphic novel series and this latest volume is as much fun as the previous three. Great read for both adults and kids alike.

Street Fighter x G.I. Joe #1 (IDW Publishing) – The concept sounds goofy, but something also gets me to smile and think fun. I’m interested in seeing where this one goes and if it kicks up nostalgia like I think it will.

Transformers #50 (IDW Publishing) – I love IDW’s various Transformers series and this one is at the top of the pile for me. The last issue ended with a bang and this one sets off in a new direction as Earth is declared under the protection of Optimus Prime. But is it benevolence or a take over? Depends which side you’re on!
