Review: Voracious: Feeding Time #5

voracious Feeding Time CoverI’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes lately, frequently playing the bands two albums in sequential order for hours on end through my headphones as I plug away at the Day Job and then as I walk home. I’ve described their music as akin to a pissed off Foo Fighters, but that doesn’t begin to do the chugging, fast paced groove laden songs any justice – the music has connected with me in a way that I can’t quite comprehend, and after listening to the two albums hundreds of times over the past couple of months, I’m showing no signs of fatigue. The music won’t be for everybody, and I’m well aware of that, but for me the two albums presently released represent just over an hour of the finest slice of anger and melody recorded. 

After only spending a few months with the music, I know that I’ll enjoy it for years to come.

I can just as easily say the exact same thing about Voracious.

There’s something about this series that has just clicked for me; the elevator pitch is usually enough to sell anybody on the story (time travelling chef hunts dinosaurs to serve in his diner), but after two miniseries that pitch doesn’t begin to do the story justice – and nor can I in a spoiler free review, because it’s hard for me to believe that this issue represents only the second time that Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr have finished a comic book miniseries. I don’t remember the last time that I read a story arc from either Marvel or DC that was told this well or illustrated as wonderfully as the first two chapters in the Voracious trilogy. Muhr’s layouts in the opening of this comic are wonderful; with a textless first page he tells a story that a thousand words would struggle to tell – I was genuinely in awe when reading the review copy, and were it not for a Diamond Distribution snafu with my LCS I’d have been sat staring at the comic already.

I’m always impressed when a page is laid out in an interestingly inventive way, and the first page of this comic is simple in it’s elegance – yet it’s all the stronger for it. But not only is Muhr on top form, but colourist Andrei Tabacaru brings the already great artwork into the level of sheer beauty that you don’t see as often as you’d like. I would recommend you buy this comic for the art alone, but Naso delivers another flawless issue. Honestly, at this point I’d be surprised if he didn’t.

This series has constantly impressed me over the course of it’s nine issues, and if memory serves, I don’t think I have ever rated a series as high as I have Voracious.  

Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr reminded me of why I loved comics with the first miniseries, and with Feeding Time they have reminded me of just how good sequential art can be. If this is what these men can do on their first and second story arc, then the industry can expect some bloody brilliant things from them in the future.

If I read a better series this year, then I’ll be shocked. Voracious: Feeding Time has set the bar pretty bloody high.

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!

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

Top Pick: Immortal Brothers: The Green Knight #1 (Valiant) – The Eternal Warrior has become one of my favourite characters, so this 48 page one-shot by Matt Kindt and Cary Nord that places him and his brothers in King Arthur’s court (another subject I’m very fond of) is going to rocket to the top of my pull list. I’ve been looking forward to this for months.

Old Man Logan #21 (Marvel) – Logan heads back in time to, I assume, various points in his past. I know nothing about this series beyond the front covers, but they look so incredibly exciting.

Redline #2 (Oni Press) – It’s not often I get excited about sci-fi comics… but this is one of the ones that tickles my fancy,

Voracious: Feeding Time #5 (Action Lab Entertainment/Action Lab: Danger Zone) – I make no secret of my love for this series whatsoever, and the finale to the second miniseries is going to be explosive – and awesome. My expectations are through the roof for this, but Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr have a habit of smashing those to smithereens with each issue.

 

Patrick

Top Pick: Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys: The Big Lie #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Last issue introduced us to Hardy Boys noir, let’s see what’s in store for Nancy.

All-Time Comics: Bullwhip #1 (Fantagraphics) – The idea of this line is so perfect and ridiculous it’s a must for me.

Spencer and Locke #1 (Action Lab Entertainment/Action Lab: Danger Zone) – Calvin & Hobbes noir. I’ll take that for at least one issue.

American Barbarian Complete Series (IDW Publishing) – !!!

 

Joe

Top Pick: Old Man Logan #21 (Marvel) – I can’t believe Lemire’s run is almost over, but this four issue arc sounds like a hell of a way to go out on top.

Seven to Eternity #5 (Image) – It’s back! The book returns after a usual image trade release break, and I’m stoked to see what Remender does.

Grass Kings #2 (BOOM! Studios) – After a promising first issue from one of my favorite writers, Matt Kindt, I am hyped for the second one.

Action Comics #977 (DC Comics) – The Superman Reborn arc was a lot of fun, and this comic has been consistently great. What’s next for Supes?

Detective Comics #954 (DC Comics) – A classic villain and Batman prepare to battle? Or will they? Tynion is killing it on this book and I’m so excited to see where this story goes, especially involving Orphan so much.

 

Shay

It’s an amazing week to be a comic book lover. It was really hard to narrow it down to the seven titles I picked.

Top Pick: Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Shadow #2 (Dark Horse) – Shadow’s life is about to get even more interesting in this graphic serial version of almost everyone favorite Gaiman book. Come for the David Mack variant covers, stay for the amazing story.

Top Pick: Black Panther and the Crew #1 (Marvel) – YES PLEASE. So many black superheroes, such a strong story, so much action. Saying I am here for the page turning story arc is an understatement.

America #1 2nd Printing (Marvel) – If you don’t already own a copy or haven’t read it yet, then you should get to it. Despite the shady AF comments about diversity killing the Marvel’s print sales, we have a comic book about a Queer Latina requiring a 2nd printing proving that representation counts, diversity is important and  America (the superhero & the country) is for all of us.

Kingpin #3 (Marvel) – The hits keep on coming, take that however you want, and, Kingpin is becoming a complex, fully realized, multi-faceted character.

Suicide Squad #15 (DC Comics) – The “Burning Down the House” storyline comes to an end. Deadshot is about to go up against his old team with Harley leading the charge. Rustam and his crew had better bring their A-game because, the Squad is in a take no prisoners, crack all skulls kind of mood.

Honorable Mention: Deadpool vs Punisher #1 (Marvel) – A battle of the morally gray psycho “heroes” is upon us. The man of all the action and little words meets the man with all the words and all the action.  Got popcorn?

Honorable Mention: Weapon X #1 (Marvel) – building on the awesomeness of Logan, the newest version of the Weapon X will keep you on your toes and worried about the safety of some of our favorite clawed mutants. You should be worried, this Weapon X upgrade isn’t just about creating superior mutants, it’s about kicking off a mutant genocide.

 

Paul

Top Pick: Weapon X #1 (Marvel) – I’m a sucker for shadowy government agencies, and Weapon X has a long standing history in Marvel of being one of the most shadiest and deadliest.  I’m excited to see what this new agency’s agenda is, and I’m looking forward to seeing Domino and Warpath back on a team line up.

X-Men Blue #1 (Marvel) – I’m hoping this title brings some of the fun from this teams first book, but also get them more into playing the heroes they will one day grow up to be.  And it’s going to be interesting to see how Magneto performs as mentor and how he will influence this team.  I’m thinking this is going to be a good one.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Spencer & Locke #1 (Action Lab Entertainment/Action Lab: Danger Zone) – It’s Calvin and Hobbes meets Sin City and it’s amazing. One of my favorite debuts so far of 2017 it’s entertaining and subversive.

Godshaper #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A super interesting concept where everyone has a god. I’ve read the first issue and it’s a unique idea and intriguing start.

Heathen #3 (Vault Comics) – Have you read the first two issues? That alone is reason this is on my list. A solid LGBT comic that is set in the world of vikings.

Solar Flare #1 (Scout Comics) – An apocalypse story where power goes out, Scout has been putting out entertaining comics that fly under the radar. They’ve nailed it when it comes to quality and solid comics. So, when there’s a new release it’s always on my list to check out.

The Unstoppable Wasp #4 (Marvel) – So far, the comic has been a lot of fun with a positive entertaining vibe that I can’t help but smile when I read it.

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.

Paul

Top Pick: X-Men Prime #1 (Marvel) – Well it wasn’t looking good for awhile there.  It seemed that Marvel was giving up on the X-Men and moving on with other titles.  But, now we have ResurrXion and I am excited!  I can’t wait to see how it all begins here and see the new teams and books take shape.  Not a fan of some of the costume designs I’ve seen peeks of (I’m looking at Rachel Grey) but really cannot wait to see this new chapter take shape.

All-New X-Men #19 (Marvel) – Jean Grey is back and the gangs all here.  This has been a fun title and I’m sorry to see it end.  Yes, I know this team is coming back in X-Men Blue, I just hope it brings along the fun from this first book.  And I am excited to see it focus on the 5 original members (no offense to Idie, Laura and Evan).

Inhumans Prime #1 (Marvel) – I wasn’t at all happy that it looked like Marvel was going to sacrifice the X-Men and make the Inhumans the next “it” thing, but that seems to have all changed.  While I am very excited for the new X-Men books, I am a fan of the Inhumans and look forward to seeing what’s next for them.  The Royal family has left the throne and I’m hearing things about them heading out into space?  Yeah, definitely down for this one.

 

Alex

Top Pick: Divinity III: Stalinverse #4 (Valiant) – Alright, so I’ve already read this, and it’s fantastic. What’s got me excited is the thought of reading the issue without any watermarked art work because this is a beautiful looking issue, and a fantastic conclusion.

Voracious: Feeding Time #4 (Action Lab Entertainment/Action Lab: Danger Zone) – Another comic I’ve already read and loved, my reasons for picking this are very similar to Divinity III: Stalinverse #4 – I want to see the colours pop in print.

Aldous Spark #1 (Grenade Fire, Inc) – So this one’s a bit of a cheat, but it’s sat on my desktop right now waiting for me to read it for a review… and because I plan on doing that this week, and the comic looks pretty bloody awesome, I figured I’d have it as one of my top picks.

Ninjak #25 (Valiant) – It’s taken me awhile to get really excited for this series, and I’m not really sure why, but when I read the first part of The Seven Blades Of Master Darque something clicked and I was suddenly all in with Valiant’s purple clad ninja that blends James Bond with Batman. And swords.

Old Man Logan #20 (Marvel) – The last Marvel book still on my pull list is always going to find a spot here because I am an unashamed Wolverine fanboy. I make no excuses.

 

Joe

Top Pick: Animosity #6 (Aftershock) – This is one of my favorite comic books out in the entire medium, and I wish more people read it. An awesome story about a girl and her dog, and the downfall of humanity.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #8 (DC Comics) – It hasn’t been all good, but I’ve enjoyed the last few. It feels just different and classic enough for me, even if it doesn’t touch the highs of the original legendary story.

Old Man Logan #20 (Marvel) – Lemire is done in a few issues, so I want to savor these. Also, we are almost at the past lives story arc which has me so excited. I love this book.

Moonshine #6 (Image) – This is such a crazy and original book. Moonshine, gangsters, romance, and werewolves. What isn’t there to like?

Booster Gold/The Flintstones Special #1 (DC Comics) – Mark Russell does amazing work on books like Prez, and The Flintstones, and now he’s giving us this odd gem among the other DC/Hanna-Barbera mashups.

 

Shay

Top Pick: Orphan Black Deviations #1 (IDW Publishing) – It’s a sci-fi bonanza , in a super sized cross over that’ll make the tv lover in you squeal with delight. It’s a 6 part arc and this is the very beginning of what I’m sure will be a lovely story!

Harley’s Little Black Book #6 (DC Comics) – Harley finds herself tossed out of a space ship and stranded with Lobos and his dog/food tester on a rainy planet, with minimal clothing. Hijiniks ensue in this over the top issue of Harley’s LBB .

Suicide Squad/Banana Splits Special #1 (DC Comics) – Yes, it is as silly as you think it is and yes you will laugh your butt off and love it as much as you think you will. It’s a mash-up you didn’t know you needed.

Inhumans Prime #1 (Marvel) – The bridge isn’t over, this is the super-sized issue that kicks it off. RESURRXION Starts now with the first issue in the arc that’ll connect IVX to whatever Marvel has planned next.

X-Men Prime #1 (Marvel) – The X-Men team have a little bridge of their own, Kitty Pryde is back, ready to lead & it’s time to rebuild.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Suicide Squad/Banana Splits Special #1 (DC Comics) – The concept is completely insane, but this is a comic that you didn’t know you need until you’ve read it. It’s off the wall fun and exactly what I was hoping for when DC Comics announced this series of mash-ups. The main story is solid, but the Snagglepuss story by Mark Russell with art by Howard Porter is perfection. Twisted fun that also reflects on the world.

Hook Jaw #4 (Titan Comics) – This is basically Jaws, except crazier, and I’m completely sucked in and sold on it.

Man-Thing #2 (Marvel) – I wasn’t completely sold on the first issue but the back-up story was top notch. I’m interested in seeing the second issue mostly because I have a better idea of what R.L. Stine is going for with this series so it won’t catch me off guard as much.

The Rift #3 (Red 5 Comics) – Time travel fun that’s a great twist on a Twilight Zone like story.

Rough Riders: Riders on the Storm #2 (Aftershock) – Historical figures come together in this weird twist on history. The first issue picks up where the first volume left off and it continues the fun. There’s lots of mysteries to answer and I want to see where this story takes us.

Review: Voracious: Feeding Time #3

PrintMy first reaction upon reading this issue was, and I quote, Bloody Hell, Markisan. Bloody fucking Hell.

When was the last time you read a genuinely amazing comic that made your jaw drop so fast it nearly dislocated? For me it was ten minutes ago when I opened the PDF review copy of creators Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr’s Voracious: Feeding Time #3. It was an issue that I have been looking forward to for some time, and yet despite my high expectations, I was utterly blown away. I just…  it’s just so bloody awesome.

Markisan Naso has got to be one of the most exciting comic book writers to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), and this is his second miniseries. He has an uncanny ability to convey so much emotion through his narration and dialogue, and you feel like you’ve known his characters all your life when you hear them speak, but watching them come alive with Jason Muhr’s artwork is astonishing. As much as the writing gets you into the characters, it’s Muhr’s layouts, and the way he composes his pages that elevate this comic into pure brilliance. I’m aware I’m sounding overly hyperbolic here, but Naso and Muhr have created a wonder comic here; Voracious: Feeding Time #3 is like a man who has been eating gas station beef jerky finally gets to eat a fillet mignon.

These are men you need to keep your eyes on.

Out of respect for the creators, joined again by colourist Andrei Tabacaru, I won’t spoil any thing about the issue. But it’s easily the best single issue I have read in a long time, with more nuances and subtle hints than you’d ever expect in a comic book. You often hear people say that something is the culmination of everything that came before it, and that has never been more accurate than with Feeding Time #3; if you’ve read the other issues of Voracious and Voracious: Feeding Time, then you’re going to thoroughly thoroughly enjoy every page of this issue.

It’s only February, and I’m pretty sure this will be the best single issue I’ll read all year; the bar has been set pretty fucking high from here on out. Having said that, if you intend on  reading this comic based entirely on this review without reading any of the previous issues, then you’ll be doing yourself, and the story, a huge disservice. This issue is a complete and utter work of art, and one of the most astonishing comics I’ve read in some time, but without reading at least the first two issues of this series then you’ll think I’m touched if read Feeding Time #3. It’s a phenomenal comic, but it’s not the best jumping on point. There’s not enough of you reading this series, and you’re all missing out.

I have no idea how Markisan Naso and Jason Muhr will top this, but I can’t wait to find out.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

super-sonsWednesdays 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: Animosity #5 (Aftershock) – This is one of the best comics to come out in the last year. It’s consistent, interesting, emotional, and just everything I want in a story. I never know where the series is headed next and that is what keeps me coming back.

The Wild Storm #1 (DC Comics) – WildStorm returns! And Warren Ellis returns with it. I am excited to see what Ellis does with this grittier new and seemingly more grounded approach to some of my favorite characters. It sounds perfect for fans, both old and new.

Super Sons #1 (DC Comics) – Holy cow, it feels like I’ve been waiting forever for this! Robin and Superboy go on wild adventures in what I can imagine as fun, action packed, and nostalgic to be everything a teen superhero book should be.

God Country #2 (Image) – What an awesome comic. A comic that takes the idea behind Thor and has some fun with it. This revolves around an old man with Alzheimer’s who remembers everything when he touches a magical sword. There’s also gods and demons, so there’s that.

Batman #17 (DC Comics) – The end of the last issue was intense, even if it was just symbolic. What will Bane do? What will Batman do? This has been coming to a head and I expect the doors to be blown off everything as these two collide. Tom King’s series is really getting some legs and I expect all of the slower issues to pay off soon with the excellent building up to this pressure cooker story.

 

Alex

Top Pick I: Savage #4 (Valiant) – Usually by the time I’m writing this I’ve already read Valiant’s offerings for the week, but in a strange twist I actually haven’t opened the review copy just yet and I’m debating just waiting for the print copy from my LCS to read, but we’re expecting a bout of weather early in the week that may impact the postal service… anyway. Savage has been a really interesting series so far, and I’m really excited to see whether this issue will tie the character into the rest of the Valiant Universe or not. Plus it has some of the best art I’ve seen in a long time.

Top Pick II: Voracious: Feeding Time #3 (Action Lab Entertainment) – So… I’ve actually already read this issue, and it’s frigging phenomenal. Why am I excited to pick it up? Because are some visual sequences that I need to see in print.

God Country #2 (and #1) (Image) – I somehow missed the first issue of this series, and would have missed this were it not for the fact that it’s being written by Donny Cates, one of the authors behind The Paybacks, which is al the reason I need to go find these issues on Wednesday.

Old Man Logan #18 (Marvel) – The Aliens vibe of the recent arc has been fantastic. Jeff Lemire’s ability to capture the isolation of outer space, as well as the desolation of the waste lands of Old Man Logan’s past is stunning.

Super Sons #1 (DC Comics) – If you put Damian Wayne in a comic, I’m going to read it.

 

Paul

Top Pick: The Mighty Thor #16 (Marvel) – The Shi’ar and their royal guard have invaded Asgard, bested some of their greatest warriors and have managed to kidnap Thor, to bring her face to face with their gods. I am pumped to see the Shi’ar and their royal guard back in action and curious to see what their beef with Asgard and Thor is all about.

Old Man Logan #18 (Marvel) – This a series that has not disappointed.  I’m not Wolverine’s biggest fan, and I have never read the original Old Man Logan story this book is named after. But I have consistently been enjoying this book and recommend it. This story arc in particular has been pretty trippy. Logan is trying to save Alpha Flight from the Brood; but also in the Wastelands trying to rescue the Cage baby and both are happening at the same time? A great story that comes to a close with this issue; you don’t want to miss it.

Uncanny Inhumans #19 (Marvel) – Maximus has the secret to create Terrigen crystals. This cannot be good for the X-Men or mutants as a whole. Or can it? The tie-ins for the Inhumans vs. X-Men event have worked very well in telling the smaller stories outside of the main battle issues, but I think Maximus’ plan will have larger consequences that will bring an end to the fighting, one way or another.

Uncanny X-Men #18 (Marvel) – So last issue was a little slower, focusing on some character development between Storm and Forge. It was an alright issue that saw the X-Men’s plan to take care of the Terrigen cloud literally blow up in their faces. This issue says Magneto will be deploying his team of secret mutant sleeper agents to aid in the fight against the Inhumans. Secret sleepers you say? That alone has me anxious to read this issue.

 

Shay

Gamora #3 (Marvel) – Gamora racks up enemies like nobodies business, she also unearths some secrets that might rock her world.

Batwoman Rebirth #1 (DC Comics) – The issue is a prologue of epic proportions and I’m here for the backstory.

Harley Quinn #14 (DC Comics) – It’s fun with some serious shade to the current political climate and some serious girl power thrown in for good measure.

 

Brett

Top Pick: The Killer Vol. 5 (Archaia/BOOM! Studios) – For those who are unfamiliar with Matz and Luc Jacamon’s epic story the short version is Frank, aka “The Killer” is James Bond for the Third World. Evil political dealings involving oil, assassinations, IMF, political jockeying, imperialism, for a political geek like me, this series has cool and depth. This is the fifth and final installment, and I can’t wait to see how it all wraps up. Will Frank find happiness? Will he go out in a blaze of bullets? How Matz and Jacamon finish the series will be interesting and I can’t wait to see what they have to “say” when it’s over.

Dead Inside #3 (Dark Horse) – A murder inside a prison… sounds like an easy case, right? Nope! The last issue ended with a shocker and this southern noir-ish crime comic has me engrossed.

The Rift #2 (Red 5 Comics) – The first and second issue feel like a classic Amazing Stories or Twilight Zone story. Entertaining and just plain fun. Like comics should be.

Super Sons #1 (DC Comics) – The team-up we’ve seen so far of Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne in Superman has been amazing and for them to get their own series… well, I’m super excited. Having read the first issue, it’s everything I was hoping for with an energy and enthusiasm that perfectly fits it’s two young leads.

The Wild Storm #1 (DC Comics) – I’m not the biggest Warren Ellis fan (he’s hit and miss for me), but I’m intrigued to see what will happen in this re-imagining of the classic universe. The first issue is a solid start that reminds me a lot of the third volume of Wildcats. In today’s world, that’s exactly what I was hoping for.
