Upcoming Comics Spotlight: Sci-Fi

This batch features some post-apocalyptic dinosaur action, pulpy sci-fi adventure featuring megacorporations at war, giant Lovecraftian kaiju, a tale of the last Cybertronian, and intergalactic James Bond.

 

NEGALYOD GOD NETWORK HC

(W) Vincent Perriot (A/CA) Vincent Perriot


In a post-apocalyptic far future/alternate world, dinosaurs roam the desolate land, while the last denizens of humanity survive together in technological cities run by a military regime. Winner of the revered Saint-Michel Prize for writing!


"Dinotopia meets Mad Max in this extraordinary saga of futuristic human survival on a scorched Earth" - SciFi Wire JAN221689


Why this caught my eye:

I mean 'Dinotopia+Mad Max' is a pretty solid sales pitch, but also Perriot's artwork is looking pretty fantastic as well.

 

GRIP OF THE KOMBINAT TP

(W) Damon Gentry, Simon Roy (A/CA) Damon Gentry, Simon Roy


Two megacorporations wage an eternal tug-of-war for the ruins of our future solar system. Pulpy sci-fi adventure, escalating unintended consequences, wry satire, and pure goofery combine in seven potent chapters of comics entertainment to make GRIP OF THE KOMBINAT, an unholy lovechild of Verhoeven and Asimov.


A original graphic novel from the deranged minds of SIMON ROY (PROPHET, HABITAT, FIRST KNIFE) & DAMON GENTRY (Sabertooth Swordsman, Vinegar Teeth).

FEB220087


Why this caught my eye:

I'm pretty much always down to give Simon Roy work a look ever since his short story 'Good Business', which also had a fun mini-film made off of it that's worth a quick look.

 

MEGA TP

(W) Salvador Sanz (A/CA) Salvador Sanz


A gigantic creature has been awaken from its eternal sleep in Antarctica. The destructive monster, only known as "The Salamander", has started a journey of chaos and destruction. The only thing that could stop this menace is another sleeping giant; a creature from under the ocean known as "Mega".

JAN221616


Why this caught my eye:

I've highlighted this numerous times, so this share is just a signal flare that the print collection is finally out.

 

TRANSFORMERS LAST BOT STANDING #1

(W) Nick Roche (A) E. J. Su (CA) Nick Roche


When the last stars flicker and fade, who will be the only Cybertronian left? The planet Donnokt sits on the edge of the universe, far away from all the stars that are flickering and fading out one last time. It is a world on the precipice of revolution-industrialization-taking its first steps into the realms of the mechanical. And on the far edge of nowhere, a Visitor arrives, and Donnokt will never be the same again. The war for Cybertron may be long over... but the war from Cybertron never ends. MAR220469


Why this caught my eye:

I've always enjoyed Nick Roche's contributions to Transformer books, especially his Wrecker centric material. This looks like a fun self-contained bit of post-apocalyptic sci-fi to boot.

 

PROTEUS VEX ANOTHER DAWN TP

(W) Michael Carroll (A) Jake Lynch (A/CA) Henry Flint


For fourteen brutal centuries, the Imperium Ascendant and the Obdurate have clashed in an intergalactic war that spanned planets and peoples. Then the war - and the Obdurate - came to a dramatic end. Now, the galaxies are picking up the pieces. In the midst of this sprawling, dazzling system of galaxies, is Proteus Vex, ex-soldier for the Imperium Ascendant turned super-agent. He's fast, brutal, and he always gets his prey. But when he is sent to find his former superior officer, Vex finds himself caught up in a deadly conspiracy.


Hit comics team Michael Carroll (The New Heroes, Dreadnoughts, Judge Dredd), Henry Flint (Judge Dredd, Zombo) and Jake Lynch (Judge Dredd) bring you a mind-expanding, colourful story that will plunge you into a series of strange new worlds.

FEB221654


Why this caught my eye:

I really liked Flint's artwork from his Zombo days, and this just sounds like fun sci-fi weirdness.

 

That's it for this batch, we'll hit up some fantasy on the next round!
