Covers by Juan Doe, Dustin Nguyen
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: August 21, 2019

If you have ever had a cat, then you know how regal they can be. It is almost as if they know more than anyone or anything else; basking in that knowledge and superiority. If you ignore their aloofness and their ever-present need to have humans cater to their every whim, they are actually marvelous little creatures. So is it really a far stretch to imagine that one of them could be able to travel ethereally to help one they have befriended. But such is the case in Dark Horse ComicsStrayed #1.

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 27, 2019
Cover Price: $3.99

What do you get when you combine a bad attitude with entropy at its ugliest? Bad Luck Chuck #1 is what. Chaos incarnate, available for a price, that is exactly what she is and she is damn good at it, too. She might be cursed but Charlene “Chuck” Manchester has found a way to make a living from it.

Unfortunately for her, she is a natural disaster in human form and that has not gone unnoticed. Her arrival and the subsequent destruction that follows has caught the attention of at least one person who is determined to catch her in the act. The only problem with that plan is that she apparently never leaves any evidence of the prosecutable sort. To be fair, though, the reader is left with the feeling she could not care less.

Apparently, I have missed some amazing comics lately. Ether: The Copper Golems #1 is the first issue of the second series. That’s right, second series. So guess who gets to go shopping for some back issues? That’s right, this guy. But before I do, let me tell you a little about this comic gem.

Release Date: February 7, 2018
Cover Price: $3.99

Of all the things I have written for this site, none have ever made me hesitate so much or so often. In today’s racially charged climate, it takes little to pit people against one another. Regardless of your position or stance in the political arena, this fact cannot be ignored. And while this comic book series is set almost a hundred years ago, it seems even more relevant today than it did even ten years ago. Incognegro: Renaissance #1 is, first and foremost, a murder mystery. But it being set in 1920’s New York serves to show the reader far more than just a homicide.

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: November 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Lots of tentacles and creepy storylines are a big win in my book. Jenny Finn #1 delivers both with a healthy heap of mystery added for the hell of it. If anything, this particular Dark Horse comic book has an even heavier Lovecraftian feel to it than most of Mike Mignola‘s works.

Release Date: November 15, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Nothing brings to mind evil like the idea of Nazis. The righteous anger that flows at the mere mention of the name is true, especially in the world of Hellboy. But alongside that is another name that conjures up similar ire and fear: Rasputin. In Mike Mignola‘s Rasputin: The Voice Of The Dragon #1, we witness an allegiance form of the most diabolical sorts.
