Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Recount #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.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Bad City is an Iranian ghost town filled with prostitutes, junkies, and pimps, and other sordid souls. A lonely vampire, The Girl, stalks the town’s inhabitants. The concept and unique location have us intrigued to find out more.

Children of the Grave #1 (Scout Comics) – Earth has been reset and the populace lives in bliss receiving all they need from “Providers”. One person wants to find out the truth.

Dead Day #5 (AfterShock) – The series has been amazing at building its world where the dead return for a night.

Frank At Home On the Farm #1 (Scout Comics) – Frank returns from World War I to find his family missing and only the animals waiting for him.

Ginseng Roots #7 (Uncivilized Comics) – Craig Thompson’s exploration of his childhood and ginseng continues. Absolutely amazing work.

Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #2 (Red 5 Comics) – The debut really surprised us and has us excited to read more. It’s a great update to the classic character while honoring what has come before.

The Recount #1 (Scout Comics) – A President is assassinated and the conspirators turn their sites into those who helped get him into power… and that includes ordinary citizens who got him elected. The nation is on the brink of chaos and civil war.

Rorschach #2 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The Watchmen follow up had an intriguing start and works better as a straight-up crime/noir/political mystery than Watchmen. We want to see where it goes from its debut and how it all unravels.

Snowpiercer: The Prequel Part 2: Apocalypse (Titan Comics) – The story of how the world plunged into a frozen tundra is revealed.

We Live #2 (AfterShock) – The debut had us in literal tears and we’re excited to dive into more of this world. It’s the end of humanity and children are heading to a pick up point to get off the planet and hopefully survive.

Review: Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #1

Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #1

I honestly am not too familiar with Mandrake the Magician. Other than a few appearances in a couple of comics I’ve read, I don’t think I’ve ever read a solo comic or story of his. It’s just not a character that has really ever interested me. But, with a new take on the classic character from a publisher I wouldn’t expect it, I thought I’d dive in and give the new world a shot. And I’m glad I did. Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #1 is a solid start that has me coming back for more and see what’s next.

Written by Erica Schultz the comic introduces Mandragora Constanza Terrado Paz, a high school girl whose mother was a friend of Mandrake the Magician and has moved into his house. While learning magic she also must deal with the usual high school issues like deciding on college.

Schultz delivers a debut that’s part superhero secret identity and slice of life high school student. Its a fantastic introduction to this new take on the classic character. And, what’s even smarter, it doesn’t jettison what has come before. Schultz builds off of Mandrake’s legacy and history and uses that as part of the drive and an obstacle for the main character.

Mandy isn’t there yet starting to learn magic and still fumbling. Spells don’t work quite like she’d like and aren’t simple to pull off. This is a junior superhero in the making and in many ways feels like that classic origin story for so many classic superheroes. Mandy makes mistakes and uses her powers for mundane things like getting dressed and getting ride of teenage funk. And she fumbles at simple spells like trying to open her locker door.

And like those classic stories, Schultz delivers every day experiences so many can relate to. Mandy is bullied by a rival high school girl. She also is being pressured by her mom to go to college, and do the things colleges look for like volunteering. It’s simple details that makes a comic go from bland to great. She’s not perfect and we know as readers she’ll have to grow into her role fumbling along the way. This is the beginning of a heroes journey with a character who’s likeable and we want to see succeed and what she decides to do.

Diego Giribaldi delivers the art along with Ramon Bunge on color, J.P. Massa on backgrounds, and Martin Casanova on lettering. There’s a lot here to point to and stands out. From Mandy’s purple hair with shaved sides to clothing that emphasizes a bit hippier silhouette, there’s thought put into the characters, their surroundings, and the world. There’s also some fantastic focus on Mandy and her facial reactions which really enhance her situations and what she’s thinking.

I honestly wasn’t expecting a lot from Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #1. It’s not meant as an insult but it’s just not a character I’ve been interested in. Red 5 Comics has published some solid work though, so I had hope I’d be surprised. And, I was. Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #1 is a fantastic start and a great update to the classic character delivering superhero elements with your classic teenage drama. It’s a series that intrigued me when it was announced and having now read the first issue, I can’t wait for the next one.

Story: Erica Schultz Art: Diego Giribaldi
Color: Ramon Bunge Backgrounds: J.P. Massa Letterer: Martin Casanova

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Giga #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.

The Department of Truth #2 (Image Comics) – The conspiracy thriller continues and with it feeling like every crazy idea is being accepted as reality today, the series feels like it straddles between satire and reality.

Giga #1 (Vault Comics) – This is what happens when the mechs stop fighting. The series has already sold out of its first printing and will be a hot item this week at comic shops.

Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #1 (Red 5 Comics) – The classic character gets an update and we’re excited to check it out.

Nailbiter Returns #6 (Image Comics) – The series has been an amazing sendup of horror films and the last issue shifted things a bit in its tone and focus. We’re excited to check out more and see where this adventure takes us next.

Power Rangers: Sins of the Future (BOOM! Studios) – A brand new graphic novel set after the events of Power Rangers: Time Force. Based on the traffic we’re getting, this one might be under the radar and under-ordered.

Shang-Chi #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic with a solid mix of action and down to Earth moments. It’s a great re-introduction of the character with a focus on updating him for modern times but not losing so much of what makes the character great.

Strange Academy #4 (Marvel) – Such a fun series. If you want kids learning to control their magical powers at a school, this is one to check out!

Sympathy for No Devils #1 (AfterShock) – Murder, mystery, monsters, and magic. A brutal murder of the world’s largest Colossal and it needs to be solved. We’re intrigued by the series as it sounds like magic meets cops mystery.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #1 (IDW Publishing) – One of the most anticipated comics of the year, it’s already sold out and has over 130,000 copies ordered! One turtle remains and he’s on a mission of revenge.

Undiscovered Country #9 (Image Comics) – Anything can happen with this series that has kept us on our toes with every issue. It’s an America cut off from the world and now divided into numerous strange territories, each a commentary on today’s reality.

Victoria and Nora: A Gotham Love Story (DC Comics) – A new graphic novel about a young Victor Fries meeting Nora Kumar. It’s a tragic tale about living life to the fullest and what it truly means to love…and to let go. These graphic novels from DC have been amazing so far and this one has us really excited to read it.
