Everything’s going right for Starkid and the Solaris crew’s first QWST!

Well… if they live through all those bad parts! The hilarious and action-packed QWST concludes!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Pandemica #1

Wednesdays 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 Wednesday.

Absolute Carnage: Symbiote of Vengeance #1 (Marvel) – Absolute Carnage has been top-notch so far and Ghost Rider getting involved has us very intrigued.

Chainsaw Reindeer (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – A reindeer gets pissed off by Santa’s abuse and goes on a murder spree. The concept is out there and gets us to laugh.

Gotham City Monsters #1 (DC Comics) – S.H.A.D.E. is no more and Frankenstein is a free agent once again and he’s got some revenge on his mind.

King Thor #1 (Marvel) – Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic team up again for one last ride with the Lord of Asgard!

Midnight Sky #1 (Scout Comics) – What if you discover the people around you aren’t who you thought they were? Think Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets They Live.

Pandemica #1 (IDW Publishing) – A war is brewing in the US and a shadow government is preparing a “purity bomb” for ethnic cleansing. A group of scientists and SpecOps are going to try to stop them.

Powers of X #4 (Marvel) – The refocusing of Marvel’s X-Men line of comics by Jonathan Hickman has been interesting and with the “death” of so many major characters last issue, this one should be an interesting read to see where he goes next.

Punisher Kill Krew #2 (Marvel) – The Punisher taking on a bunch of fantasy characters works WAY better than it should.

Starcadia Quest #1 (IDW Publishing) – The board game comes to comics!

Trees: Three Fates #1 (Image Comics) – Warren Ellis and Jason Howard’s Trees returns with a murder mystery in a remote Russian village.

CMON’s Arcadia Quest Comes to Comics and IDW Publishing

Starcadia Quest

Game developer CMON’s highly-anticipated tabletop game (and Kickstarter darling) Starcadia Quest will come to comics beginning in August, courtesy of IDW Publishing. The first-ever expansion of the Starcadia universe, this three-issue miniseries welcomes James Roberts – the fan-favorite and critically acclaimed writer of Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye and Lost Light – to craft a wild new adventure for Starkid and his Freelance Adventuring Crew.

The comic is old-school science fiction with a modern twist mashing up classic space opera tropes with weird twists and turns. As it’s a game, the comic helps the world-building aspects of this world and setting.

Illustrated by Aurelio Mazzara and colored by David García CruzStarcadia Quest takes comic readers and game fans deep into the Frontier, where the toughest jobs in the galaxy are handled by Freelance Adventuring Crews. On his sixteenth birthday, the delivery boy known as Starkid sends out a call for the best recruits he can get… at his local Stardollars coffee shop. An action-packed and hilarious QWST begins!

The game and comic features solid character design, homages to science fiction movies and enemies, and acknowledges the stories and tropes that have come before. All of that and some laugh out-loud humor.

As a special bonus, each issue of Starcadia Quest will be jam-packed with additional pages’ worth of exclusive playable content, allowing readers to incorporate the issue’s story elements into their tabletop gameplay!
