Panel Talk: New Image Comic #1s

March 5, 2018 Reviews 0

Hey y’all! Today marks the release of a few new series from Image Comics, one of my favourite comics publisher, and I wanted to discuss some of the new series.

I received a copy of these for review but this does not influence my thoughts on these comics or this review.

Gideon Falls #1

Gideon Falls 
Story by: Jeff Lemire
Art by: Andrea Sorrentino
Releasing: March 7th 2018
Rated: Mature

A brand-new ongoing series from the acclaimed bestselling creative team of Old Man Logan and Green Arrow! The lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake. Rural mystery and urban horror collide in this character-driven meditation on obsession, mental illness, and faith.

My Thoughts: Gideon Falls was off to an interesting start! This first issue just introduced some of the characters in a fascinating way but definitely ended with a cliffhanger. I will definitely have to pick up the next in the series.

Oblivion Song By Kirkman & De Felici #1

Oblivion Song

Story by: Robert Kirkman
Art by: Lorenzo De Felici, Annalisa Leoni
Releasing: March 7th 2018
Rated: Teen

A decade ago, 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them, but after many years, they gave up. Nathan Cole…won’t. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those still living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe…Nathan is looking for something else? Why can’t he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song? 

My Thoughts: I really liked this. The premise is completely original and the characters are also very riveting. This is another series I’ll definitely have to keep reading. The art style was also very well-done and I liked how detailed it was.

Prism Stalker #1

Prism Stalker

Story/Art by: Sloane Leong
Releasing: March 7th 2018
Rated: Teen

For fans of Octavia Butler, Sailor Moon, and the biopunk horror of David Cronenberg comes PRISM STALKER, an ongoing sci-fi adventure series by SLOANE LEONG. Vep is a young refugee raised away from her devastated home planet as an indentured citizen in a foreign colony. She works tirelessly for her insectoid hosts, but there is no exit in sight in this viscous, dripping citynest. The eye of opportunity is closing. Her duty is to her family and her siblings, but what more can she do for them here? The answer appears faster than she is ready for.

My Thoughts: Prism Stalker was a tad confusing at first but after I got a feel for the setting, I really enjoyed this one. This first issue ends on a huge cliffhanger and it’s definitely another series I’ll have to pick up! I liked that the art and writing was done by one person and you can really tell that both elements work so well together.

Overall I have nothing negative to say about any of these series! They’re all so fascinating in their own right so if the synopsis of any of them intrigues you, I encourage you to check it out on March 7th!
