Things have gone from bad to worse as the true plot of the Blood Belles has been revealed. Stakes are high, but they’ll need to be brought low if Sam, Michael and the Frog Brothers want to get out of this predicament. The comic book sequel to the cult classic vampire movie comes to a bloody conclusion!

The Blood Belles reveal their true reason for coming to Santa Carla: unleashing a vampire threat unlike anything the world has ever seen. If you thought lost boys were bad, wait until these girls get their way.

Star has rejoined the vampires, the Frog Brothers are M.I.A. and David’s kidnapped Michael to appease the Blood Belles. It looks like it’s up to Sam and the mysterious musical muscleman known as the Believer to save the day. Those dirty bloodsuckers better get ready for some sweet tunes!

It’s getting to be so a guy can’t go out on a Friday night in Santa Carla without somebody trying to sink their teeth into his neck! The Blood Belles are wreaking havoc across town. The Frog Brothers are missing, Star has run away, and Sam and Michael are one step ahead of having their blood drained. Only the mysterious vamp hunter known as the Believer can help them now!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

black-3-cover-1Wednesdays 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.

Joe

Top Pick: Action Comics #969 (DC Comics) – I am blown away by this comic, and how well Dan Jurgens is juggling everything. Doomsday and Superman fighting again. Mr. Oz. Super Lex. Creepy Clark Kent. The aliens that have come after Lex, and so much more. This is one of my favorite series and I have not been disappointed by a single issue. I am very excited to find out what the hell is going on with Clark, though I doubt I get that answer in this issue.

Wonder Woman #12 (DC Comics) – I have said it before. This is DC’s most consistent book, and it just gets better with each issue. Rucka is doing such a phenomenal job here, and I get impatient waiting for the next issue on both of the storylines (and they come out every two weeks!). This is a series everyone should be reading.

Reborn #3 (Image) – The first issue was amazing, and the second issue grew the world a little more and was still fantastic. Now that we’ve met our big bad, and Bonnie’s former cat who is now an evil General (because of a bad trip to the vet), our characters are preparing to go to war. Who else will appear from Bonnie’s past?

Inhumans vs. X-Men #1 (Marvel) – I am mostly excited about this because Death of X left a bad taste in my mouth (I did not mind the twist ending, but mostly the event was unnecessary). I have my doubts about this event, and I wonder if it is even necessary, but I do like Lemire and Soule, and I hope they give us something good here, and this isn’t just filler before the new spring books for the Inhumans and X-Men.

 

Shay

Top Pick: Suicide Squad #8 (DC Comics) – General Zod and the Black Vault have gotten everyone going crazy at Belle Reve except for Harley Quinn ( the Black Vault made her SANE) and Enchantress who have to fight through the asylum , including their Suicide Squad friends to save them.

The Lost Boys #3 (DC Comics) – Star has fled. The Frogg brothers and missing. The Blood Belles have gone rogue and are getting their rampage on! Where’s the popcorn?  This is already better than those crap sequels and it’s still getting good.

Daredevil #14 (Marvel) – Muse gives us a murderous reason to loathe performance art. Blind spot might be going down and Murdock is getting Punisher style angry. Daredevil is about to get dark and real like it was in the 90s!

Inhumans vs. X-Men #1 (Marvel) – Inhumans vs X-men it’s about to go down!!!  Do I really need to say more?

Black #3 (Black Mask Studios) – Kareem is concerned about Juncture and its leadership and Detective Waters is starting to piece together the clues about where Kareem has disappeared to.

 

Alex

Top Pick: Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior #14 (Valiant) – It’s always a shame to see a series come to a close, but I’d much rather it end on a high note than peter off into mediocrity, and Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior has been on an incredible high note lately. I’m entirely comfortable in saying that this was my favorite ongoing series this year, and that’s a hell of a void it’s leaving.

Britannia #4 (Valiant) – A fresh new story comes to a close, and I’ve been loving the arc so far. And with the quality of the physical product, this is well worth your money.

Old Man Logan #15 (Marvel) – Despite a couple of minor missteps this has been a fantastic series. Now that we have Old Man Logan teaming up with the Howling Commandos and fighting vampires? Awesome.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Motor Girl #2 (Abstract Studios) – The first issue blew me away and it’s a series you absolutely need to get. Writer/artist Terry Moore does it again with this new seires featuring a woman who works in a junkyard and many or may not be seeing things like a talking gorilla and a UFO. A weirdly fun series.

Optimus Prime #1 (IDW Publishing) – The post-Revolution Hasbro connected universe kicks off and this series focuses on Optimus and his annexation of Earth as part of the Cybertonian council. It’s a hell of a concept and I’m intrigued to how it will all play out.

Transformers: Lost Light #1 (IDW Publishing) – Again I’m intrigued since this is part of the post-Revolution Hasbro connected universe. The Lost Light has been on its mission to find Cyberutopia for quite some time and I’m intrigued to see how/if this series shifts at all post event.

Rockstars #1 (Image Comics) – A new series by Joe Harris that involves rock and roll, conspiracies, demons, dark gods of rock… sign me up.

Black #3 (Black Mask Studios) – One of the most important comics on the shelves right now.

The comic book sequel to everyone’s favorite blood-and-fangs flick continues. The Frog Bros. have a beef with the new vampires in town, and now they’re on an unholy mission to show the Blood Belles that they picked the wrong turf to try to set up shop. Will these teenage boys be any match for the deadliest undead ladies to ever terrorize Santa Carla? We think you know the answer to that, Death Breath!

Variant cover by: Joelle Jones

The stakes are raised in this nostalgic and unstoppable sequel to the ’80s cult classic vampire film, The Lost Boys. Veteran horror writers Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, NIGHTWING, Hack/Slash), and Scott Godlewski (THE DARK & BLOODY, Copperhead) deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987!

Santa Carla, California is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local coven’s head vampire dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

all-star-batman-3Wednesdays 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

It was stupidly difficult to choose a top pick this week, between both Valiant books, All-Star Batman and Kill Or Be Killed. Any one of these books could have easily found themselves atop the list; the only reason behind the the top pick is because it was the last one I wrote…

Top Pick: Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior #12 (Valiant) – I heard a rumour that I haven’t verified yet that this series will be ending soon. That’s an incredible shame, because the past eleven issues have combined to form one of the best consecutive runs from any publisher over the past year. If this is the last, or second to last issue, then I’ll be sad to see this go. If not, then my favourite ongoing comic will continue and I’ll be happy.

All-Star Batman #3 (DC Comics) – This has been such a brilliant series so far (yes, I know we’re only two issues in), and getting to watch how Scott Snyder is treating two face is fantastic. I’ve never been happier to see Batman be this resourceful before. It’s a brilliant dose of the Dark Knight out of his element: the countryside in the day.

Britannia #2 (Valiant) – Valiant’s prestige style miniseries are often printed on a higher quality paper, which gives the pages a nice glossy feeling, which is in total juxtaposition to the story itself. Britannia is a bloody, no holds barred tale set in a violent time in Rome, and Britain’s, history. Peter Milligan and Juan Jose Ryp gave us a brilliant first issue, so I’m looking forward to the second quite a bit.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #6 (DC Comics) – Both Green Lantern titles have been excellent since Rebirth, but it’s this one that’s taken me by surprise most of all: normally stories set in space aren’t my forte, but for some reason I can’t get enough of this story.

Howard The Duck #11 (Marvel) – The final issue in the current run may (or may not) be bigger than a normal issue, and may (or may not) have a guest appearance from Spider-Man. It’ll be a shame to see this series go, but the ride was a fantastic one while it lasted. Here’s hoping it goes out with a bang.

Kill Or Be Killed #3 (Image Comics) – Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips reunite for this story about a man who must kill bad people, or his life will take a drastic turn for the worse. It’s a gripping story, and one that delves deeper than the typical superhero/vigilante fare. Highly recommended.

Honourable mentions: Action Comics #965, Old Man Logan #12, Red Hood and the Outlaws #3, and Revolution #3

 

Mr. H

Top Pick: All-Star Batman # 3 (DC Comics) – I have enjoyed this title far beyond what I thought I would. The mix of Grindhouse and Gotham story telling has me on the edge of my seat. I think JR JR is turning in some of his best work in a high octane environment. Scott Snyder has officially taking the top of the mountain as the all time greatest Batman scribe. No only is the main story a joy but the back up tale by Snyder and Shevley is a thrill as well. I’m loving the development of Duke Thomas. This title can do no wrong in my eyes.

The Clone Conspiracy # 1 (Marvel Comics) – Well though this subject matter could be an absolute disaster I have more than enough faith that Dan Slott can make this a must see comic. I’m loving the rebirth of The Jackal under this Annubis motif and he’s not coming across truly evil. (Well not yet) Spidey has been so fun the past couple years and I don’t expect the party to stop here.

 

Shay

Top Pick: The Lost Boys #1 (DC Comics) – The hunt for Star is on as her “sisters” the Blood Belles search for her and the Frog Brothers & the Emerson Brothers try and keep the blood suckers at bay. I like throwbacks and a good horror comic and , it can’t be any worse than those gawd awful sequels.

Black Monday Murders #1, #2 & #3 (Image Comics) – This week you can get all caught up with the series thanks to the reprinting. Who doens’t like a tale of dirty money, corporate badies & the rebels who try and keep them at bay?

Belladonna #1 (Boundless) – A woman leading a troop of Warrior women. Sounds like all the girl power and I want to dig right in!

Batgirl & The Birls of Prey #3 (DC Comics) – The new Oracle is a superior bad ass and Gothams normal badies aren’t up to the task of running defense. in this next installment of the “Who is Oracle” the ladies face off against some of the most dangerous villains yet.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Sheriff of Babylon #11 (Vertigo) – Seriously, this is one of, if not THE, best comic on the market right now. It’s absolutely gripping and there’s one more issue to go in this story arc. We’re about to figure out all of the dirt in what is a murder mystery full of terrorists, crooked US operatives, and taking place in the Iraqi Green Zone.

Mosaic #1 (Marvel) – I’m intrigued, not going to lie. I want to see what Marvel does with this new character and to see how it all plays out.

Solarman #2 (Scout Comics) – The first issue was solid and I can’t wait to sit down and read the second. The classic character has been updated for modern times and it’s something that’s needed more of in comics.

Warhammer 40,000: Will of Iron #1 (Titan Comics) – I’ve been a Games Workshop and 40K fan for over 20 years at this point. So, a new comic having me excited is not a shock.

Warlords of Appalachia #1 (BOOM! Studios) – I’ve read the first issue and it’s solid with a solid premise, great art, and enough of a hook that I want to see what happens next. I think what impressed me most was that the first issue is a well thought out world with tons of small details including actual music you can play.

 

Anthony

Top Pick: Monstress #7 (Image Comics) – Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda’s Monstress is a stunningly gorgeous series, rich in both art (with an aesthetic that combines traditional Japanese woodblock prints and a art-deco style) and the world being created. This new arc follows a violent clash with Maika’s captors as she and her companions Kippa and Master Ren, continue their journey to discover the true nature of the discovery that Maika’s mother made in the distant past.

The Fix #6 (Image Comics) – Roy and Mac are just two awful individuals living in a world surrounded by debauchery, lies and mindless violence. There is something about The Fix that makes it one of the best titles out there, combining this anti-hero dynamic with buckets of laughter each and every issue. With every new push in the story and characters introduced, it feels like the creative team still has plenty of potential ideas to work with, which is definitely a very, very good thing.

The Fade Out Deluxe Hardcover (Image Comics) – Collected here in one large tome is the excellent, Golden Age of Hollywood, alcohol infused, Eisner award winning noir series from the same team of Kill or Be Killed, Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips and Elizabeth Breitweiser. If you missed the series, this looks to be the best bet collection wise as it contains all the back matter from the single issues and a ton of extra material.

Glitterbomb #2 (Image Comics) – Speaking of Hollywood, the first issue of Glitterbomb introduced us to Farrah and the harsh reality she faces trying to make a living as an actress in the sleazy, male-ego driven world. Jim Zub’s scripts are consistently packed with surprises, introducing a supernatural twist to Farrah. Djibirl Morisette-Phan and K. Michael Russell bring the scripts to life through some confident line work and dreamy use of colours, enhancing the emotion and dread especially when there aren’t any words on the page.

Kill or Be Killed #3 (Image Comics) – Dylan has just killed the first person he has deemed justifiable in the act. Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips and Elizabeth Breitweiser have been crafting a fantastic tale, challenging the notions of morality, how our past shapes who we are and whether we can truly change as time passes by.
