Pick(s) of the Week: Batman/Superman #2 and Many More!

BatSupeComboCover095956--525x800Welcome to the new pick of the week, where we survey the Graphic Policy team to see what they’re looking forward to this week or what they know will be a solid read. This week, the team has one book among them that they agreed upon, Batman/Superman #2 by DC Comics.

Consistently mentioned by each contributor is Greg Pak’s writing combined with Jae Lee‘s art. The combination is clearly a draw for each of us. Plus, we’re all intrigued to find out what happens next!

Check out below for each team member’s picks and find out what you should be on the lookout for this Wednesday.

Andrew:

Batman/Superman #2 (DC) – Although I wasn’t thrilled with the first book, after hearing the announcement of a Batman/Superman movie at SDCC, I think it’d be smart to give this series a chance.

Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #1 (Dark Horse) – Seriously looking forward to Mike Mignola’s Hellboy spinoff and cult favorite, Lobster Johnson, in this two part mini series. I give this first book a stellar review in a forthcoming post.

Mass Effect Foundation #1 (Dark Horse) – Most video game to comic book series fail to impress, but they’ve secured Mac Walters, the writer of the second and third Mass Effect games, and I don’t want to pass this up.

Batman The Dark Knight #22 (DC) – I’ve been on a pulp kick lately that’s made me neglect the Caped Crusader. Once I catch up on the Mad Hatter’s finale, I’ll jump into Hurwitz’s latest story arc.

Ghostbusters #6 (IDW Publishing) – Just because I didn’t give I glowing review to the previous issue, doesn’t mean I don’t want to know what happens. I’m willing to stick with it and see what happens as the paranormal investigators reintegrate back into society.

Brett:

Top Pick: The Massive #14 (Dark Horse) – Brian Wood’s amazing series following the crew of the Kapital and their search for their sister ship in a world devastated by environmental disaster. The current story arc is tense with the threat of further destruction in the shape of nuclear war.

Mind MGMT #13 (Dark Horse) – Matt Kindt’s crazy tale of special agents with amazing powers. The small details in every comic makes the series stand out, not to mention the amazing story telling and Kindt’s art.

Red Team #4 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Garth Ennis’ tale of a team of rogue cops is as gritty and heartbreaking as they come.

Thumbprint #2 (IDW Publishing) – Joe Hill’s horror story (I think) involves a female Iraq War vet. It’s a bit, I Know What You Did Last Summer, but I’m hooked.

Wild Blue Yonder #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue caught me off guard and blew me away. An amazing fun story of a world dominated by those who live in the sky. Fun characters and exciting sequences with fantastic art makes this one stand out for me.

Scott:

Top Pick: Lazarus #2 (Image) – The first issue of Lazarus set up such an engaging world and interesting characters, and I’m interested to find out when the first arc will really begin to pick up steam. Plus, it’s Greg Rucka and Michael Lark, so there’s really no reason you shouldn’t be reading this book.

Batman/Superman #2 (DC) – Come on. Jae Lee drawing Batman. That’s all.

Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #1 (Dark Horse) – I’ve never read a Lobster Johnson book before, but I’m a sucker for pulp adventure heroes, and Sebastián Fiumara’s art looks absolutely exquisite: grim and detailed when necessary, bold and cartoony a page later. And Dave Stewart is a master colorist.

Mark Waid’s The Green Hornet #4 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I’m so excited for this issue because Mark Waid, in only three issues, has crafted an emotionally complex story, and I just can’t wait to see what happens next.

Rocketeer/Spirit: Pulp Friction #1 (IDW Publishing) – I love the Rocketeer, and I loved Waid’s last Rocketeer mini (Cargo of Doom); it was perfectly ridiculous. I’m really curious to see how this pulp inspired team up works out.

Sean:

Top Pick: Batman/Superman #2 (DC)—because we need to figure out what the heck that first issue was about! Plus, Greg Pak and Jae Lee make a great team on this strange, singular book with wonderful art and somewhat ominous plotting. The first issue blew me away, and left me wanting exactly this next issue. $3.99.

Gamma One-Shot (Dark Horse)—Ulises Farinas debuts what looks like a sci-fi, Adventure-Timey weird-fest; check this out if you’ve got the extra $2.99.

Larfleeze #2 (DC)—Giffen’s and Kolins’ Douglas-Adams-esque breakout book about the funny-as-Hell Orange Lantern continues with a battle against Laord of the Hunt. $2.99.

Lobster Johnson: A Scent of Lotus #1 (Dark Horse)—Mignola brings back Lobster Johnson to track down the Crimson Lotus, starting off a new mini-series. $3.50.

Superior Spider-Man Team Up #1 (Marvel)—and while Superior Spider-Man #14 (also out this week) is a must have in my opinion, if you’re on a budget you’ll want to check out the beginning of this new team up book which starts with Spidey and the Avengers figuring things out. $3.99.

TPB of the Week: Camelot 3000 (DC)—collecting the 1982-1985 maxi-series of the same name, this TPB presents not only a major piece of DC Comics history, since Camelot 3000 was one of the first direct market series and DC’s first maxi-series (think Brightest Day), but it is also a crazy-cool reimagining of the King Arthur stories, in typical 1980s fashion, mixing the tale with nuclear issues, challenging gender roles, and…aliens! $19.99 (but I ordered it from Amazon for $16.51).

Review: Thumbprint #1, G.I. Joe #5, G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #3

Thumbprint #1

Thumbprint01_cvr-300x455Private Mallory Grennan had done terrible things as an Abu Ghraib prison worker. After being discharged from the army, Mal thought she was leaving her sins behind to start a new life back home. But some things can’t be left behind — some things don’t want to be left behind.

Joe Hill is an amazingly talented writer (thank you captain obvious) and his previous work with Jason Ciaramella, The Cape, was a solid series. I had no idea what this series was about going into it, but coming out, all I can say is holy crap.

While on the surface this is a mystery, the comic also has hints of its dealing with the horrors of war, PTSD and atrocities committed during war. It mixes in real world events for this fictional tale.

But, the characters are the draw, especially Mal who has to deal with being a female soldier, and all that comes with it. Expectations on the battlefield and harassment from fellow soldiers. The fact that sexual harassment in the military is in the news now makes the comic more timely.

The comic mixes real world events with an interesting mystery possibly stemming from those events. Entertainment often is at it’s best when it’s a reflection of the real world and commentary on it, looks like this series is going that route and can’t wait to see where it goes.

G.I. Joe #5

GIJ_S3_05-pr-1Homefront reaches its explosive conclusion—and we do mean explosive: If Baroness can’t hold the city of Warrenton, no one will! And the fate of the entire G.I. Joe team rests in the hands of its newest—and most inexperienced— member, Hashtag. What will she decide? Plus: The return of a fan-favorite Cobra character fans have been clamoring for since he first appeared!

I was a huge fan of the previous IDW volumes of G.I. Joe. The comics helped bring the grim and gritty to the cartoon series often throwing them into the modern era with story lines that were relevant in modern times and a more realistic tone.

With this third volume, this series falls more into the later years of the cartoon series with goofier characters. It’s not as much about covert action of a military unit but instead crazy characters each with their unique backgrounds and quirks. Compared to the other series right now, this falls in the campier end of things.

I read the first volume hoping it’d get back to the previous tone, but I prefer the older tone and that of the other series on the market. If you have fond memories of the cartoon series and want a G.I. Joe that reflects that tone, go for it. But me, I like the more adult version.

Story: Fred Van Lente Art: Steve Kurth
Story: 6.75 Art: 7 Overall: 6.75 Recommendation: Pass

G.I. Joe: The Cobra Files #3

5512783-gi-joe-the-cobra-files-3Snakes and Tigers! Flint’s plan to trap the team’s new, elusive enemy may be crazy enough to work: offering up a target too irresistible to pass up, he thinks they can draw their opponents out. But when things start going south—fast—it’s up to Chameleon to salvage the mission. Will she put the team in danger in order finish the job?

This series keeps up the tone of the previous volume picking up directly from what’s come before and because of that, is the strongest of the three Joe series on the market. This covert team has an awesome premise working with captured Cobra agents and a deep cover that’s too entertaining to not be fun.

The story itself is interesting enough and flips long time Cobra characters in a new direction. It’s a nice blend of taking the old and giving it a newer spin that makes sense.

Over all the storyline picks up on what’s come before building off of the previous volumes interesting take on G.I. Joe and giving us an even more covert unit with an awesome cover.

Easily the best out of the three current G.I. Joe series.

Picks of the Week: Superman Unchained #1 and 9 other Choices

superman unchained #1 coverI’ve been a bit down on Superman since the launch of DC’s New 52. In general, I think the existing series lack something, though not quite sure I can put my finger on it. Some writing is just incomprehensible and others lack the wonder and excitement I’m looking for. That’s why I’m intrigued by Superman Unchained #1 from the team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Jim Lee. That team alone makes this a “buy” and one of the highest profile comics this week, probably this month.

With it being Superman’s 75th anniversary and a new movie out this week. I’m crossing my fingers this is the Superman comic I’ve been waiting for from a team I know can turn out amazing stuff.

Checking out my other picks below in alphabetical order.

  • American Vampire: The Long Road to Hell #1 – It’s American Vampire how is that not reason enough to purchase this!?
  • Bravest Warriors #9 – One of the  most consistently funny comics on the market. Great for kids and adults.
  • BubbleGun #1 – Aspen’s latest series is an anime like sci-fi adventure. Cool premise and interesting art.
  • Ghost Town #1 – My favorite so far of Action Lab’s Danger Zone line. The concept is terrorists with the ability to time travel.
  • Six-Gun Gorilla #1 – Simon Spurrier + BOOM! = awesome!
  • Supurbia #8 – It’s super heroes mixed with a soap opera and it is fantastic.
  • Thor: God of Thunder #9 – Easily one of the best Marvel NOW! series. Not great for new readers, but an amazing story. Definitely should be read from the first issue.
  • Thumbprint #1 – Joe Hill’s latest comic series!
  • The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #1 – Gerard Way’s latest comic series!
