1. Milford Green Graphic Novel (Indie Comic)
Power Rank: 164 Pts
Placing: 1st Place
Comic Book Analysis: Milford Green is the first chapter in a 3 part comic book saga about what happened one fateful night when Britain’s prettiest village is under siege by a squad of nefarious aliens. It’s written by Samuel George London and with art by Mikael Hankonen.
This is a comic book where dialogue is king yet it doesn’t overpower the environment of the overall story. Somehow Samuel George London and Mikael Hankonen have managed to create the comic book version of Pride, Prejudice and Zombies. Except Aliens. Lots of Aliens.
2. Scout’s Honor Issue 1 (Aftershock Comics)
Power Rank: 80 Pts
Placing: 2nd Place
Comic Book Analysis: Scout’s Honor follows Kit, a ranger scout, almost three hundred years after the apocalypse. It is written by David Pepose, art by Luca Casalanguida, colors by Matt Milla, and with lettering by Carlos M. Mangual.
Rather than your run of the mill apocalypse Scout’s Honor is something else entirely. Pepose leaves the reader wanting more with a twist dating back to the origins of the Ranger Scouts. With art unlike anything else on the shelf and a completely unique story this is one that I will keep reading all the way through.
3. Damned Cursed Children #1 (Source Point Press)
Power Rank: 57 Pts
Placing: 3rd Place
Comic Book Analysis: Damned Cursed Children #1 is a horror comic book cut from the same cloth as its 1950s cult horror contemporaries. It is written by Howard Wong and Josh Stafford. With art by Robin Simon Ng.
Damned, Cursed Children #1 is a delectable horror filled treat. As an intro to Howard Wong and Josh Stafford’s world of horror, it borrows from the creepy moments of cult horror as much as it does gore and ambience. Damned, Cursed Children is the horror film that needs to happen.
