Spine-Tingling Spider-Man #1

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Amazing Spider-Man #77

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.

Amazing Spider-Man #77 (Marvel) – “Beyond” has been a solid new direction for the Spider-Man titles and Kelly Thompson steps in as writer and Sara Pichelli as artist of this issue. We’re excited to see what they do with the new focus.

Ant #1 (Image Comics) – After a week delay, we get to see Erik Larsen’s take on the classic character. Can’t wait to see what Larsen does with a brand-new ongoing series.

Comrade Kill (Adhouse Books) – “A Cold War super soldier accidentally wakes from a cryogenic freeze long after the war has ended to find out his existence is now meaningless. Being too dumb to reconcile this he goes out into the wild to satisfy a pointless mission objective that no one asked him to do.” That sounds too awesome to not check out.

Cross to Bear #1 (AfterShock) – Jack the Ripper ran to the Wild West and is being pursued by The Order, descendants of Crusaders sworn to eradicate the unnatural.

DC vs. Vampires #1 (DC Comics) – It’s the Justice League vs. Vampires!

The Harbinger #1 (Valiant) – Harbinger is back and we’re so excited for this new volume and direction. This is a series that is likely to be the center of the Valiant world going forward and we want to see where it all goes.

Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club #1 (Dark Horse) – We’re always excited for a new Hellboy series which tend to do a solid job of balancing the big meta picture and being accessible for new readers.

House of Slaughter #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Something is Killing the Children is a hit and we want to see how this new spin-off series is handled.

Inferno #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of setup as the end game of Jonathan Hickman’s vision for the X-Men begins. Here’s hoping things really get rolling here.

Primordial #2 (Image Comics) – A brand-new series from Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino that puts a twist on the space race with an alternative take on history.

Search for Hu #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue was great with dips into generally not known history when it comes to Jewish migration mixed with action and family drama.

Swamp Dogs #1 (Scout Comics/Black Caravan) – Confederate soldiers are brought back to life by Voodoo and crave flesh!

Task Force Z #1 (DC Comics) – Task Force X saw villains working their way to freedom. Task Force Z will see dead villains working for a new chance at life! Well ok then.

Tiny Dancer (Atheneum Books for Young Readers) – Sien Cherson Siegel’s second graphic novel about her life in ballet.

The Winchester Mystery House #1 (Source Point Press) – The house is pretty famous and we’re intrigued into how you turn it into a comic series.

Review: Suicide Jockeys #1

Suicide Jockeys #1

Ten years after a catastrophic mission gone wrong, Denver Wallace, leader of the Suicide Jockeys – a poor, usually drunken, almost certainly mentally ill crew of monster-fighting, tank-and-aircraft-piloting suckers – must pick himself up off of the proverbial and literal floors, slap his estranged, desperately-fractured team back together and right what once went wrong.

I’ve been meaning to write this for awhile, but life has a way of keeping me busier than I intended. Regardless, by the time I finally got a chance to finish the review for the first issue, I realized that far too much time had passed and the second issue previews hit my inbox.

Suicide Jockeys #1 sets the stage and introduced you to the world of Suicide Jockeys, explaining the relationships ruined over the years while making sure to show you exactly what is involved in being a suicide jockey. The comic was very enjoyable, and left me hanging for the second issue. Honestly, that was the only drawback of the first issue, is that other than fleshing out the characters and their motivations, the plot didn’t advance much beyond the preview text.

That minor drawback aside, however, the comic explores the other side of heroes once the spotlight shifts away for whatever reason and the hero – whether that’s famous sports people, actors or even the super kind – is left without any real way of supporting them. Rylend Grant really captures feeling of being a down and out has been whilst flashing back to the glory days; this expositional flashback moments really serve to underline just how far Bruce Willis look alike Denver Wallace has fallen (while your mileage may vary, I loved the look of Wallace, and his likeness to Bruce Willis helped me get to know the character a little more as I heard his voice when Wallace was talking. Intentional or not, it was a fantastic way for the character to worm his way into my mind.

Davi Leon Dias and Iwan Joko Triyono, artist and colourist respectively, are joined by letterer Hde for the first issue (and likely beyond). The visual side of the creative team deliver everything you want from a comic set against a backdrop of monsters verses machines (the fact that it has taken me this long to bring the monster vs machine up should tell you how enthralling the personal drama of the comic is).

It has taken me far too long to review Suicide Jockeys #1, but with any luck you’ll be able to find the first two issues on the racks at your LCS. This is a really interesting comics and the debut leaves me excited for the second issue.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

10 Years to Death (AfterShock) – What happens when the murdered becomes the murderer? That teaser text has us intrigued.

Amazing Fantasy #3 (Marvel) – The series has been fantastic mixing fantasy and superheroes. The art is amazing, it’s just a hell of a lot of fun.

BRZRKR #5 (BOOM! Studios) – The series has been a great mix of action, mystery, and some character depth. It’s clearly all a treatment for a film but it’s exceeded our expectations.

Corset #1 (Scout Comics) – A world-famous reclusive fashion designed and inventor invites a girl to his tower where he plans to reveal his dark secrets to her.

Darkhold Alpha (Marvel) – Scarlet Witch must save the Marvel Universe in this dive into the dark mystical side of the Marvel Universe.

Deathstroke Inc. #1 (DC Comics) – Slade Wilson gets the spotlight again in a brand-new series that seems to shake things up for him a bit as he takes on a team as he’s enlisted by the secret organization, T.R.U.S.T.!

Gun Honey #1 (Titan Comics) – A gun runner is enlisted by the US government to get back the escaped criminal she helped escape.

Human Remains #1 (Vault Comics) – Invading monsters have deprived gumans of feeling emotions which makes Dax and Bisa’s love dangerous.

Inferno #1 (Marvel) – The endgame to Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men run begins here!

Night of Cadillacs #1 (Scout Comics) – Rival supernatural gangs come to Earth in a raiding mission to retrieve life-restoring blood from humans.

Party & Prey (AfterShock) – Alan is used to being ignored by younger guys, so he hardly believes his luck when lithe, handsome Scott makes a move on him in the crowded gay club. But there’s a wolf on the dance floor tonight, and he’s hungry for fresh prey…

Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven (DC Comics) – The latest graphic novel in the “Teen Titans” series, this one’s a hell of a lot of fun as the various characters start to come together. But, it’s the interaction between Beast Boy and Raven that steals the show.

Transformers: Shattered Glass #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue was good and we really want to see where this “Mirror Universe” take on the Transformers goes.

Unborn #1 (Source Point Press) – On a strange world, five explorers mine for super fuels in a last-ditch effort to save a collapsing Earth, but the mission goes to hell when they are overrun by a hostile alien species.

Undiscovered Country #16 (Image Comics) – Each issue is a wild ride and gets us to think about about what makes up “America”. A series that entertains and has some depth to it.

After learning that his lost love might be still be alive, adrift somewhere in the vast ocean of space and time, Denver Wallace must convince his estranged team to set aside years of bad blood, saddle up, and bring her back home. Also, there’s a pretty funny reality show subplot, a panel where a dog takes a massive dump, and you know… plenty of cool monster-fighting stuff.

The lovely Delilah makes her entrance. Before Francis and Finch walk into every bad neighborhood your mother warned you about, they stop for a little firepower. What better place to grab a haunted revolver than “Darby’s Sushi & Pawn”? While Darby tries to dissuade Francis from purchasing a cursed colt named Delilah, his silent sidekick loads up like it’s a goddamn biblical do-over (this may not be Finch’s first rodeo). Dance floors will be bloodied before the night is over.

Alien Turkeys run Thanksgiving in Turkey Day from Source Point Press

Prepare for a Thanksgiving themed lesson in hubris and alien violence. Turkey Day is the newest one-shot from the mind of horror/comedy maestro David C. Hayes, available online and in comic shops Wednesday, November 17.

Turkey Day is written by Brian Dunphy and Dan Gorman based on a story by Hayes. Dunphy and Gorman are also the artist and colorist on the book respectively, with cover art by Dunphy and James Couts.

Turkey Day takes place in the town of Pilgrim Point, IL. Much like the rest of the Midwest, Pilgrim Point is conservative and blind to history. The local history teacher tries to inject some real information into the yearly Thanksgiving pageant, but he is rebuffed and the town continues to perpetuate the myth that the pilgrims weren’t awful invaders.

When parasitic aliens take over the turkeys of a corporate farm and march on the pageant, the townsfolk believe them to be benevolent visitors (’cause of the lie they keep telling themselves… get it?). The history teacher knows the truth, but no one cares.
