The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Let it Snow!” Henchman 21 and “Noooooooooooooo!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of February 18, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Well, I’m guessing that large parts of the country this week are going to have problems getting to their comic shops this week thanks to the joys of winter. Remember, the comics will still be there later, so if you need to wait to pick up your comics this week, that’s okay. You can just sit back and read about the comics you will buy once you can leave the house — or, gave the digital editions for those available in that format. It’s time for another blustery edition of The GoD List!

Comic Review: Nosferatu Wars

Nosferatu Wars cover by Menton J. Matthews IIINosferatu Wars
Written by Steve Niles
Art and Cover by menton3
Letters by Nate Piekos of Blambot
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 12, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Don’t you just love it when something great just comes together? Take Nosferatu Wars, for instance. Originally published in four parts in Dark Horse Presents #26-#29, this comic is a perfect example of a classic vampire story. And what makes it even better is the way the creators twist this tale to bring us something completely out of this world.

Centered around two vampires, Tarquin and Moira, we are given a story of unfettered bloodlust and carnage mingled with a love affair that has stretched for ages. The setting is the old world and the time is that of the Black Death. Using this horrible plague as a cover for their nightly exploits, the two undead lovers travel towards the estate of a nobleman with deadly purpose.

Upon arrival there, they are faced with seemingly overwhelming odds that quickly turn in their favor thanks to their strength and ruthlessness. Slaying much of the household, they present the lord of the manor with a proposition, one he quickly accepts. But as with all things, the devil is in the details as he soon finds out.

Comic Review: Aliens: Inhuman Condition

Aliens: Inhuman ConditionAliens: Inhuman Condition
Written by John Layman
Art by Sam Kieth
Colors by Sam Kieth, John Kalisz
Cover by Sam Kieth
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Cover Price: $10.99

On a distant frozen world, “artificial persons” are manufactured by mega-conglomerate Weyland-Yutani. These formidable new security synthetics, designed for combat, test their mettle against a hive of deadly Xenomorphs.

Socialization Specialist Jean DuPaul, who teaches the synthetics empathy, sees her ever-more-human android students sent to their destruction and learns that the most savage species in the universe is man.

Aliens: Inhuman Condition tells the story of Jean DuPaul and Bear, an unlikely duo in that Bear is an inanimate object – a fluffy, pink teddy bear to be exact. DuPaul lost her husband and daughter, and all she has left of her family is Bear, the stuffed synthetic play-thing that was to be her daughter’s.

Written by Eisner and Harvey Award-winner John Layman (Chew, Detective Comics), Inhuman Conditions sees DuPaul traumatized after losing her family during a Xenomorph attack. She’s eventually rescued by a task force of androids – but the damage is done.

DuPaul’s world view has been shattered, forcing her to see reality differently than her co-workers at the Weyland-Yutani manufacturing plant. She confides in Bear (think Steven Spielberg’s Artificial: Intelligence) and begins to see the Androids she teaches social skills to as living, breathing, human beings.

Exclusive: First Look At 5 Upcoming Covers From Dark Horse Comics

Dark Horse exclusive banner

Once again, Dark Horse Comics has given Geeks of Doom exclusive access to five great new comics coming in May and June. And you know what? We want to give you a sneak peek, too! Because trust me, these are some great books here. Check out all five covers here below!

First off, releasing on May 29, is King Conan: Hour of the Dragon #2 (of 6). This second installment in the adaptation of Robert E. Howard‘s only actual Conan novel is sure to please. I know the cover by Gerald Parel definitely gets you interested with that vicious claw reaching forth towards our hero. Then, just in case you didn’t get your Cimmerian fix with that one, we have Conan the Barbarian #17 arriving on June 19 with a wonderful aquatic cover by Massimo Carnevale (I loved his Orchid covers, too).

But the big release day is June 26! Showing off the Shu Yan cover to Akaneiro #2 (of 3), I find myself really interested in this set. Look how kickass she looks! Remember, this is based upon the new release from Spicy Horse Games (be sure to check that out, too). Next up is a comic that originally debuted in Dark Horse Presents: Amala’s Blade #3 (of 4) has a very eye-catching cover from Michael Dialynas. Although I know next to nothing about this miniseries, the sheer quantity of skulls in the art gets my attention. And last, but certainly not least, we get to show you Mind MGMT #12. MTV Geek named this comic one of the top ten comics in 2012. I’m impressed with this series across the board, especially since Matt Kindt is the only person working on this book…yeah, that’s right, he does it all!

A big thanks to Dark Horse for letting us have first crack at these wonderful comics. But enough from me, here is YOUR first look:

Exclusive Banner: Dark Horse Comics: The Victories

With one mini-series in the bag, as well as a run in Dark Horse Presents, Michael Avon Oeming‘s The Victories has already established itself as a fun new superhero series with a unique take on the genre and more of Oeming’s singular art.

Today, Geeks of Doom learned that The Victories is set to return this May as an ongoing series from Dark Horse Comics.

I spoke with Oeming about the series and got a first look at the cover and a preview page from the first issue, which you can check out below after the jump.

Dark Horse Presents #12Dark Horse Presents #12
Story by John Layman
Art by Sam Kieth
Colors by John Kalisz, Sam Kieth
Cover Art by Sam Kieth
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: May 23, 2012
Cover Price: $7.99

The latest issue of Dark Horse Presents #12 brings you 80 pages of ad-free, full-color illustrated stories, featuring a brand-new Aliens adventure by John Layman and legendary artist Sam Kieth.

Inhuman Condition: Chapter 1 tells the story of Miss Jean DuPaul and Bear, an unlikely duo in that Bear is an inanimate object – a fluffy pink teddy bear to be exact. While we’re only given an 8-page introduction into Layman and Kieth’s new story, it’s clear the series will be filled with plenty of acid-spewing Xenomorphs and synthetic “artificial persons.” It’s hard not to compare Inhuman Condition to those early Dark Horse Aliens mini-series like Aliens: Book One (1988), Aliens: Book Two (1989) and Aliens: Earth War (1990), which Kieth drew for Mark Verheiden.

Miss DuPaul is a woman who has lost her husband and daughter, and all she has left of her family is Bear, the stuffed play-thing that was to be her daughter’s. She’s evacuated from a colony by a task force of androids during a Xenomorph attack.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Easy Peasy” MK2Fac3 and “Livin’ Greasy” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of April 18, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Man, comics are pretty expensive, huh? I’m sitting here looking at my pull list this week, and I’m not seeing a lot of books that fall under the price of three dollars. See, while comics for the most part are less than a gallon of gasoline in some regions, others are more, which is just flat out insane. So, when we’re stuck in an economy such as this, with an unemployment rate as high as it, we need an escape. And if you’re reading this, I’m assuming that you’re escape is the same as ours, comic books. Comic books get a lot of flack for a lot of different reasons, but there’s something about even the super hero books that everyone complains about that offer something that no other form of entertainment offers. So, it’s with this idea that we present The GoD List, a list full of comics that we are looking forward to that should help you, if not solve these real-life situation, then at least provide away to temporarily relieve them by letting you know what’s worth your time and why.

Well, well, well! Look whose birthday it is this Saturday! That’s right, it’s not Henchman21’s birthday, it’s MY birthday! Or if you speak dubstep, that’s, “errr i-i-i-i whooom bip bip bip bip wum wum wum beep beep beep whoomp!” There are a lot of great things about my birthday, first thing that comes to mind is that the world celebrates the day that their hero was born unto the Earth. The second being that I celebrate really simply with things like comics! Yes, that’s right, comics! Comics are rad, right? Certainly on par with the radness of professional wrestling, that’s for sure. And really, is there anything radder than comics or professional wrestling? Let me go ahead and answer that for you. No, there’s not. So, don’t get those facts twisted inside your head. Right! So, comics are really awesome and there are awesome comics coming out TODAY, so why don’t you read this, what we like to call The GoD List, and pick up all of these fine comics from your local comic shop OR on a digital format like Comixology? There’s not a single reason for you not to, so go ahead and do it! For me? Thanks! Also, thanks in advance for getting me things.

‘The Sabretooth Vampire’ Comes To Dark Horse Presents

The Sabretooth Vampire by Mike Russell

Dark Horse Comics announced on Wednesday that Mike Russell‘s hilarious web comics The Sabretooth Vampire lurks its way into the pages of Dark Horse Presents in the next few months with issues #12 and #14.

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of The Sabretooth Vampire, it’s pretty simple, actually. The Sabretooth Vampire is about a vampire who has the teeth of a sabertooth tiger. The vampire is a little on the short side, so these massive teeth tend to get in the way of his nefarious deeds that usually involved using the teeth to suck blood from innocent (or guilty, for that matter) victims. So, it’s a bit of a recurring gag, but people watched Looney Toons for years, so deal with it. Anyway, it’s cute, fun and gives you a nice chuckle when you read the strips, so I’m really excited about this.
