After the horrific acts of last issue, the highly unstable team of Etrigan, Jason Blood and Xanadu must face a new threat. A new player that has been ally, enemy and family to Jason and Etrigan reveals itself, and explains just who is responsible for the nightmarish transformation facing Earth. But before the shock of this information can be absorbed, the group must face a different family member. And he’s got an offer that Etrigan can’t refuse. Alliances will be made, familial bonds will be broken, and blood will be spilled!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Joe

Top Pick: Marvel Two-in-One #2 (Marvel) – The Human Torch and The Thing, half of the Fantastic Four are searching for Reed, Sue, and the kids. This has such potential, and I enjoyed the first issue. This should give a massive nostalgia overload for older readers like myself, but also give enough excitement and exploration for the younger crowd.

Action Comics #996 (DC Comics) – We are getting so close to the 1000th issue, and this series has been a blast since Rebirth. I love the addition of Booster Gold recently, and the best Superman book keeps on going strong.

Abbott #1 (BOOM! Studios) – I like a good crime story, and this first issue of this new series that deals with a detective investigating the occult coming from BOOM looks very promising.

Doomsday Clock #3 (DC Comics) – Who’s watching the Watchmen? Apparently the DC Universe as the two combine for a series that has been very promising so far. Sure, this could fall flat on it’s face, but for now, I am enjoying everything, even if it is just for nostalgias sake.

Dissonance #1 (Image Comics) – I love a good sci-if tale, and this looks promising. It is always fun to jump on a new indie series, and we need more science fiction comics.

 

Jon

Top Pick: Abbott # 1 (BOOM! Studios) – A great example of what comics can be when every member of the team contributes the best of their talents. Abbott has all the makings of being the next Locke and Key.

Frankenstein Alive, Alive Trio (IDW Publishing) –  If you missed these three issues when they were printed years ago, IDW is giving you another chance to catch up before the long awaited final issue launches next month. This is a book that’s worth owning for Bernie Wrightson’s art alone and is probably the best value for money you’re going to find at the comic shop this week or any other.

Hungry Ghosts #1 (Dark Horse/Berger Books) – Either Karen Berger or Anthony Bourdain would have been enough for me to give this book a shot but having both attached made it an absolute must-read. I can’t recommend it to everyone (see my full review for details) but for people looking for a horror anthology inspired by Japanese ghost stories its a nice taste of what Dark Horse’s new Berger Book’s imprint has in store.

Raven: Daughter of Darkness # 1 (DC Comics) – Raven was never a character I had much interest in or knowledge of but this book has me hooked for at least a couple more issues. It doesn’t even matter that I missed last year’s mini series. Marv Wolfman manages to use plenty of the tools that made old comics so accessible to new readers without the storytelling ever feeling too retro.

The Demon: Hell is Earth #3 (DC Comics) – This six issue limited series continues to be a fun take on one of my favorite characters with a twisted sense of humor and great visuals.

 

Alex

Top Pick: Ninja-K #3 (Valiant) – Although I enjoyed the previous series the title character starred in, Ninjak, the current series is everything I could want in a comic and more. The art is fantastic, and secondary only to the exquisite writing from Christos Gage. I love this series’ look at the murky history of the Ninja Programme, and at the history only hinted at thus far.

Doomsday Clock #3 (DC Comics) – I still haven’t decided if I expect this to be a train wreck of epic proportions, or somewhat enjoyable… but I’m looking forward to finding out.

X-O Manowar #11 (Valiant) – Now that the opening three arcs are over, I’m really looking forward to seeing what Matt Kindt does with Aric now that he rules an entire planet (or, rather, is failing miserably at ruling a planet). One could argue there’s real world parallels to people interfering in local politics and royally fucking the local situation up while acting the savior, but there’s more meat on that bone than I have space for here.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Southern Bastards #19 (Image Comics) – Any time an issue comes out it’s at the top of my read list. It’s been an amazing series and I don’t mind the gap at all as every issue delivers an emotional punch.

Avengers #677 (Marvel) – “No Surrender” has been excellent so far so I’m all in for this weekly series.

Detective Comics #973 (DC Comics) – Things are falling apart for the team in this finale of the latest arc. I’ve really wanted to see how this one ends.

Legion #1 (Marvel) – After the excellence of the television series, I’m intrigued to see what this limited comic series does.

Star Trek: Discovery #2 (IDW Publishing) – I’ve really enjoyed the television series so to get more in this world has me happy. The first issue added some depth so looking forward to the second to see what it does.

Review: The Demon: Hell is Earth #1

Jason Blood and Etrigan: the best of enemies, destined to spend eternity bound together. When a haunting vision leads Jason to Death Valley, a supernatural weapon is unleashed, radically transforming not only the land, but also Blood…and the Demon. The worst, though, is yet to come, as hell begins to make its way into our world.

The Demon: Hell is Earth #1 is the start of this horrifying miniseries, where Etrigan and Blood’s relationship will be changed forever!

Written by Andrew Constant, The Demon: Hell is Earth #1 is excellent and proper return for Jason Blood and Etrigan. A prophetic dream haunts Jason, a little girl, and Xanadu foreshadowing what’s to come. Everyone is drawn to Death Valley as the dream connects them somehow. The title of the series makes much more sense once you get to the first issue’s end. While the full connection of everyone is yet to be revealed, I’m curious to see how it all comes together. What makes this little girl so special? What is her role to play here?

The art by Andrew Hennessy and Bradley Walker brings in a proper sense of darkness, magic, and prophecy. The art emphasizes the duality of Jason and Etrigan, with banter and how panels are presented. The artists also have some fun with their settings and the situation working in demonic faces and iconography as the hell is unleashed in the form of a mushroom cloud.

A good start, the series focuses on its two main characters who are tied together while setting up an interesting mystery.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Action Comics #992 (DC Comics) – With “The Oz Effect” over, we’re intrigued to see where this series goes as that story attacked the very hope Superman is built on.

The Apocalypse Girl #1 (Amigo Comics) – Metis is 16, has all these problems and more. Because, on top of that, the End of the World happened and she has to cope with bloodthirsty demons and a 4,000-years old, critical, undead mom! This just sounds awesome.

Betty and Veronica: Vixens #1 (Archie Comics) – We’ve read it, it’s awesome. Check out our early review.

The Demon: Hell is Earth #1 (DC Comics) – Out! Out! Our favorite Demon is back in a new limited series. The first issue is intriguing and should be fun for long time fans of the character.

Detective Comics #969 (DC Comics) – Kicking off “Fall of the Batmen.” That title alone has us taking notice.

Doomsday Clock #1 (DC Comics) – We’ve already posted multiple reviews, but this is THE comic of the week. After lots of build up the world of Watchmen and DC collide.

Doppleganger #1 (Alterna Comics) – Dennis’ grip on reality fully unravels when an evil version of himself begins to torment him. Alterna has been doing an awesome job with their newsprint line of comics and this is a brand new one to check out. Just $1.50 people!

Eleanor & the Egret #5 (AfterShock) – Amazing art and beyond adorable story. If you’re not reading this series, you’re missing out.

Gregory Suicide (Dark Horse) – A graphic novel taking on clones and a story that spirals in paranoia. A solid read with some really cool art.

Imaginary Fiends #1 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – Imaginary friends that also want you to kill. The procedural meets… well, we’re not quite sure. First issue is a great set up in what will be an interesting twist on the police genre.

Long Lost #1 (Scout Comics) – Stranger Things meets Ghost World in Long Lost, the haunting story of two estranged sisters who find themselves drawn back to their small southern hometown to unlock the disturbing mysteries that are hidden there, with all roads leading back to their enigmatic, secretive mother

Motor Girl #10 (Abstract Studios) – The final issue of the series. We’re sad already.

Rugrats #2 (BOOM! Studios/KaBOOM!) – We loved the cartoon. We loved the first issue. We’re getting our Rugrats fix, how about you? A comic that’s great for kids and their parents looking for nostalgia.

Sherlock Frankenstein & the Legion of Evil #2 (Dark Horse) – The world of Black Hammer continues to expand in this series. Jeff Lemire people!!!

Silver Sable and the Wild Pack #36 (Marvel) – 90s nostalgia, nuff said.

Star Wars #39 (Marvel) – If you’re not reading Marvel’s Star Wars comics you’re missing out on great action and a fantastic extension of the world. If you’re a fan of the movies and not reading these, you’re really missing out.

Transformers: Optimus Prime #13 (IDW Publishing) – Post “First Strike” Optimus heads into the Cybertronian wilderness to search for the first new life in four million years. These types of stories tend to really stand out.

Void Trip #1 (Image Comics) – The story of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans left alive in the galaxy. They’re low on fuel, they’re low on food, and they’re low on psychedelic space froot, but they’re still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise, super-planet Euphoria.

WWE #11 (BOOM! Studios) – If you’re a fan of wrestling, these comics are a must.

X-O Manowar #9 (Valiant Entertainment) – One of the best series out there today.
