Comics of Future Past – november 2019

torsdag 3 oktober, kl 23:28 av 0 kommentarer

Bättre sent än aldrig men nu är det äntligen dags att ta itu med de kommande titlarna för november 2019. När det gäller min granskning så har jag bestämt mig för att banta ner listan betydligt den här gången. Jag märker mer och mer att jag nästan helt tappat sugen när det gäller superhjälteserier från DC och Marvel – vilket inte betyder att jag slutat älska genren utan att det helt enkelt finns så mycket annat att välja på som jag hellre prioriterar.

Som vanligt följer jag Pärs femgradiga skala och Månadens tips hittar ni längst ner i inlägget.

1 – Helt ointressant

2 – En intressant skapare

3 – Två intressanta skapare eller enbart en fast med lockande premiss

4 – Två favoritskapare eller enbart en med lockande premiss Prenumerationsvärdig

5 – Två favoritskapare med lockande premiss Given Prenumeration

Mot titlarna!

On Alice’s sixth birthday, her dying great-aunt sent her the birthday gift she didn’t know she always wanted: a big, beautiful 19th-century dollhouse, complete with a family of antique dolls. In no time at all, the dollhouse isn’t just Alice’s favorite toy…it’s her whole world. And soon, young Alice learns she can enter the house to visit a new group of friends, straight out of a heartwarming children’s novel: the Dollhouse family. But while the Dollhouse family welcome her with open arms, in the real world, her family life is becoming much more complicated…and deep within the Dollhouse’s twisting halls, the black room waits, with an offer to Alice. The house can fix all this, the black room says. All she has to do is say the words…
Longtime collaborators Mike Carey and Peter Gross (Lucifer, The Unwritten) are joined by Vince Locke (The Sandman), to bring their most horrifying vision yet to Hill House Comics—a story that echoes into centuries past, into Alice’s tormented future, and into the beating heart of the madness that makes up our world…literally.
Plus, in chapter two of the “Sea Dogs” backup story written by Joe Hill, spymaster Benjamin Tallmadge’s monstrous scheme is underway as his coerced crew of bloodthirsty colonial lycanthropes prepare to gut the Royal Navy from within!

Kommentar: DC bjuder bland annat på Legion of Super-Heroes #1, graphic novels för yngre läsare och en ny spin-off på Grant Morrisons Green Lantern men jag är mer intresserad av andra titeln på DC Black Labels ”pop-up line” Hill House Comics. The Dollhouse Family är skapad av Mike Carey och Peter Gross som tidigare levererat minnesvärda Vertigo-titlar som Lucifer och The Unwritten och inte minst den mycket läsvärda titeln The Highest House. Låter mycket lovande.

John Constantine is back in London, back to his old tricks—and just in time, as things have become very dark indeed in his old stomping grounds. A small-time gang lord has found himself dealing with a big-time outbreak of supernatural weirdness…and without any allies to call on and nothing left to call his own, John doesn’t have much choice about taking a paycheck from one of London’s worst, or accepting the help of one of the gang lord’s would-be foot soldiers. But what should be an open-and-shut exorcism turns out to be nothing but…and the author of this madness may just be getting started on their terrible masterpiece!
The original Constantine is back in this series from Si Spurrier (The Dreaming) and Aaron Campbell (Infidel), with nothing to his name but decades of bad memories and an unearned second chance. How, exactly, will he squander it? There’s only one way to find out…

Kommentar: Återigen är det skaparna bakom serien som lockar för sorgligt nog har jag inte läst en ruta av varken Hellblazer eller John Constantine men desto mer av favoriten Simon Spurrier (Six Gun Gorilla, The Spire, Godshaper, Coda) och Aaron Campbell imponerade stort med sina underbara illustrationer till Infidel.

For years, Vic Sage has worn the faceless mask of the Question to clean up the streets of Hub City by sheer force of will. He knows right from wrong. He knows black from white. But what happens when he is drawn into a conspiracy that reaches from the heights of Hub City power to the depths of its underground tunnels? What happens when things stop being black-and-white and start getting a little gray? And what happens when, in a secret chamber deep beneath the city, Vic Sage meets his own end…and his new beginning? Eisner-winning writer Jeff Lemire joins forces with the legendary art team of Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz to resurrect Vic Sage, only to destroy him all over again…and again…

Kommentar: Ytterligare en DC-titel av Jeff Lemire att lägga till hans redan imponerande CV och det som också lockar är att serien kommer ut med rejält maxade nummer på 48 sidor.


• Garth Ennis (Co-Creator of The Boys & Preacher) is back at Marvel and writing the Punisher again, this time with art phenom Jacen Burrows (MOON KNIGHT, 303, Crossed) at his side.
• A dozen Russian mobsters lie dead at the Punisher’s feet and he wasn’t the one who pulled the trigger.
• If you know Frank Castle, you know this doesn’t necessarily set his mind at ease.
• Who is in New York City decimating the Russian mob and can it be long before they come into conflict with Frank?

Kommentar: Marvel bjuder bland annat på nya X-titlar samt solotitlar till Morbius och Yondu vilket intresserar mig föga men jag är desto mer nyfiken på en ny Punisher-titel av Garth Ennis efter hans hyllade Punisher: The Platoon.


WRITER: Jeff Lemire
ARTIST / COVER A: Eric Gapstur, Phil Hester, Ryan Cody
NOVEMBER 13 / 32 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
When an eight-year-old girl literally begins to transform into a tree, her single mom, troubled brother, and possibly insane grandfather embark on a bizarre and heart-wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America in a desperate search for a way to cure her horrifying transformation before it’s too late. But the farther they get from home, the more forces threaten to tear the family apart as fanatical cults, mercenaries, and tabloid Paparazzi close in, determined to destroy the girl—or use her for their own ends. A new genre-defying series written by New York Times bestselling author JEFF LEMIRE (GIDEON FALLS, ASCENDER) and illustrated by acclaimed artist PHIL HESTER (Shipwreck, Green Arrow), FAMILY TREE combines mystery, action, and horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to in order to keep her children safe.

Kommentar: En av november månads mest lovande titlar är utan tvekan Family Tree av husguden Jeff Lemire och tecknad av Phil Hester som bland annat tecknat Warren Ellis mardrömslika serie Shipwreck. En surrealistisk och övernaturlig road trip mixat med familjedrama är helt enkelt min tekopp.

WRITER: Shawn Kittelsen
ARTIST: Eric Zawadzki, Michael Garland
COVER A: Eric Zawadzki
NOVEMBER 20 / 40 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
Superpowers and teenage romance collide in the newest Skybound original by SHAWN KITTELSEN (Mortal Kombat 11) and ERIC ZAWADZKI (The Dregs, Eternal)! Gene therapy has saved Americans from disease—only to give birth to Variants: people with powers so unique, the government denies their human rights. But a rebellion has begun… Charlie North is on the run from the police when he crosses paths with Jill Kearney. Instant attraction becomes mass destruction when they unlock powers neither knew they had. Now, the question isn’t how to use them—but how far they’re willing to go.

Intresse: 4
Kommentar: Jag har vid ett flertal tillfällen uttalat mig mycket varmt om tecknaren Eric Zawadzki vars alster lyfte titlarna The Dregs och Eternal till underbara höjder och jag ser verkligen fram emot att få se honom spänna musklerna med superhjältar och tonårsromantik.

“SINS OF THE FATHER,” Part One Featuring the show-stopping talents of SPAWN series artist JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER and the writer behind such hit shows as Wutang: An American Saga, Marvel’s Runaways, and Starz’s American Gods—RODNEY BARNES. When a small-town beat cop comes home to bury his murdered father—the revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr.—he begins to unravel a mystery that leads him down a path of horrors that will shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality… and vampires. Welcome to KILLADELPHIA.

Kommentar: Ytterligare en vampyrtitel – den här gången med ett rätt, ursäkta ordvitsen, lökigt namn – att lägga till en rätt så övermättad genre. Om den får bra betyg på nätet så ganska jag plockar upp den i trade men annars är intresset ljummet.

WRITER: Brian Azzarello
ARTIST / COVER A: Eduardo Risso
NOVEMBER 13 / 32 pages / FC/ M / $3.99
“RUE LE JOUR,” Part One The hit horror/crime series that Nerdist called “damn near perfect” is back from the creative team behind the seminal crime drama 100 Bullets! With the help of his girlfriend Delia, “Torpedo” Lou Pirlo made it to New Orleans in search of a cure for his werewolf curse. However, curse cures cost money, and Lou is a little “light” on scratch. But if there’s one thing Lou can do, it’s hustle. So he’s off to work his way from the crookedest gutters to the swankest gambling dens in The Big Easy—along the way crossing paths with witches, warlocks, and the occasional zombie!

Kommentar: Något som jag däremot inte kan få nog av är bra varulvsserier och eftersom Brian Azzarello och Eduardo Rissos mustiga varulvsgangsterserie Moonshine nu äntligen kommer tillbaka så är min hunger för tillfället stillad.

This November, New York Times bestselling writers SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, A.D.: AFTER DEATH) and CHARLES SOULE (CURSE WORDS, the forthcoming novel Anyone) will team up with artists GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI (The Amazing Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Hellblazer) and DANIELE ORLANDINI (Darth Vader) and 2019 Eisner Award-winning colorist MATT WILSON (THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE, PAPER GIRLS) to embark on an epic adventure in the brand-new ongoing series, UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY! In this special oversized first issue, readers will journey into the near future, and an unknown nation that was once the United States of America—a land that’s become shrouded in mystery after walling itself off from the rest of the world without explanation over thirty years ago. When a team seeking a cure for a global pandemic breaches U.S. borders, they quickly find themselves in a struggle to survive this strange and deadly lost continent!

Intresse: 5
Kommentar: Image Comics levererar två riktigt lovande titlar i november månad som lätt kommer att hamna på årets tio-i-topp-lista, nämligen redan nämnda Family Tree och så Undiscovered Country, författad av två av serievärldens mest lysande författare just nu: Scott Snyder och Charles Soule. Premissen är ett USA som klippt banden fullständigt med omvärlden, en förödande pandemi samt ett team som ger sig in i landet på jakt efter ett botemedel utan att ha en aning om vad som väntar. Soule och Snyder har utlovat minst 30 nummer av serien och jag är definitivt med på tåget.


Crone #1 (of 5)
Dennis Culver (W), Justin Greenwood (A/Cover), and Brad Simpson (C)
On sale Nov 6
FC, 32 pages
The Sword Saviour and Champion of Men once known as BLOODY BLISS is now nothing more than a reclusive old CRONE. Does she have the strength to answer the call for one last adventure? Only Dennis Culver (Burnouts, E is for Extinction) and Justin Greenwood (Stumptown, The Last Siege) know for sure in this story that is equal parts Unforgiven and Xena: Warrior Princess.
– From Burnouts creator Dennis Culver and acclaimed artist Justin Greenwood!
– One more battle for Bloody Bliss!

Intresse: 2
Kommentar: Dark Horse Comics ligger lågt i november med bara en titel som knappt fångar mitt intresse. Att se en kvinnlig krigare på ålderns höst är visserligen lovande men jag har svårt att föreställa mig att Bloody Bliss skulle vara coolare än Bridgette McGuire i Kieron Gillen och Dan Moras lysande äventyrsserie Once and Future – för hon är bad ass!

– From Narnia to Harry Potter , we’ve seen our hero leave the real world for a fantasy world—but in Ansel’s world of monsters and magic he’s haunted by visions of our world with tailored suits and modern technology!
– Ansel embarks on his Quest to find the mysterious Folklords, hoping they can explain his visions…but looking for the Folklords is punishable by death. What will Ansel risk to find out about the world he has never truly belonged in?
– Eisner Award-nominated writer Matt Kindt ( Grass Kings, Black Badge ) teams with acclaimed artist Matt Smith ( Hellboy And The B.P.R.D. ) challenge everything you know about the line between fantasy and reality in a new series for fans of Die, Middlewest and Fables .

Intresse: 5
Kommentar: Matt Kindt har visat sig mycket skicklig i många genrer, som i till exempel den saknade titeln Pastaways om vilsna chrononauter, episk superhjältesaga i Divinity, psykedelisk action med mörkt djup i Ether eller kriminaldramat Grass Kings om människor som vill leva sitt liv på sina egna villkor. Hans kommande titel Folklords är en fantasyserie med en twist och dessutom tecknas den av den lysande Matt Smith, vars alster man kan njuta av i den mycket läsvärda Lake of Fire som är en titel det talas alldeles för lite om.

Cover Artist: Maria Llovet
– Eva, a high school outcast, finds herself witness to a horrible secret: the most popular boy in school enjoys the taste of blood and will kill to get his hands on it.
– Horrified and intrigued, Eva lets herself be pulled into Donatien’s macabre world. He offers the escape she has been looking for…but how much is Eva willing to betray her moral code in order to find something that gives her life meaning? And will she—or Donatien—ever find redemption?
– Maria Llovet ( Faithless) presents a dark, violent, decadent, disturbing story, in which life and death, blood and love, are inextricably intertwined.

Intresse: 4
Kommentar: Det enda jag visste om den Barcelona-baserade tecknaren Maria Llovet är att hon tecknat Brian Azzarellos erotiska thriller Faithless men hon har tidigare publicerat flera egna tonårsserier med makabra inslag i Spanien, såsom Heartbeat som nu kommer ut i engelsk översättning hos BOOM! Studios.

A young fur trapper flees her overbearing family only to get lost in a dreamlike winter wilderness that harbours a cosmic threat.
The year is 1887 and a storm brews. Eulalie Dubois has spent her entire life tending to her family’s trapline, isolated from the world. A chance at freedom comes in the form of a parcel that needs delivering to a nameless town north of the wilderness. Little does Eulalie know, something sinister hides in those woods and it yearns for what she carries. A chilling historical cosmic horror tale of survival from the deranged minds of Lonnie Nadler (The Dregs, Marvelous X-Men) and debut artist Jenna Cha.

Kommentar: Det relativt nystartade (2016) förlaget Vault Comics öser ur sig spännande titlar, framförallt Fearscape och Friendo som jag tänkt recensera vid tillfälle. Den här månaden bjuder de på Lovecraftskräck författad av Lonnie Nadler, en av männen bakom redan nämnda The Dregs, så den kommer jag hålla utkik efter.

(W) Paul Tobin (A/CA) Arjuna Susini (Variant) Nathan Gooden, Tim Daniel
Welcome to planet Heist! It’s the cutthroat capital of the entire Nehring System, home to billions of the worst men and women in the galaxy. The Pan-Galactic government has no idea what to do with the planet, but conman Glane Breld and his band of thieves know exactly what to do with Heist-they’re going to steal it. It’s Ocean’s Eleven in space, brought to you by writer Paul Tobin (Colder and Bandette) and Arjuna Susini (The Replacer)-the only minds crazy enough to steal an entire world.

Intresse: 3
Kommentar: Paul Tobin ligger bakom den kylslagna och surrealistiska skräckisen Colder (tillsammans med den fenomenale Juan Ferreyra) samt den mångfaldigt prisbelönta webbserien Bandette tillsammans med hustrun Coleen Coover. Steget till en serie om ett gäng tjuvar och skojare som bestämmer sig för att stjäla en planet som dessutom råkar vara ett tillhåll för galaxens värsta skurkar kan tyckas långt men konceptet är så skruvat att jag nog kommer att kolla in den vid tillfälle.


Mina favorittitlar för november 2019 är Family Tree och Undiscovered Country och om jag måste välja så tar jag det säkra före det osäkra eftersom man alltid kan lita på att Jeff Lemire kommer att leverera något alldeles extra.
