Here's a fun fact for you: Despite my well-known love of Draculas, I have never actually seen The Lost Boys. But now, I might just have the chance to fix that oversight. Last month, The Lost Boys moved into comics with a sequel from the team of Tim Seeley and Scott Godlewski, bringing me one step closer to learning all about the Frog brothers who, as I understand it, had a real hard time fighting Vampire Bill From Bill and Ted.

If you somehow don't remember the Sax Man from classic '80s horror movie The Lost Boys, Joëlle Jones and Trish Mulvihill are here to remind you. Their variant cover for Vertigo's Lost Boys #1 spotlights the Sax Man in all his glory. I like to imagine Tim Cappello is going to be the original art and hang it above the fireplace in the mansion I want to believe he lives in now.
"Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die." The Lost Boys made vampirism seem pretty cool back in 1987, and like so many other things that were cool in the '80s, they've now made their way to comics, thanks to Vertigo and Warner Bros. The Lost Boys is a direct sequel to the film, following the Emerson brothers and the Frog brothers into a new adventure when a gang of female vampires emerges to fill the power vacuum left by the defeat of Max, David, and their boys.
Star Wars is more popular than ever after the release of last years' seventh installment The Force Awakens rekindled everyone's love for stories set a long time ago in a galaxy far away, and the trailer for this year's Rogue One has that excitement rolling right along.
Comics and sci-fi have a long history together going way back to serialised comic strips of the '30s such as Flash Gordon, and they've only grown in size and scope since then. Star Wars itself has experienced a comics renaissance at Marvel Comics thanks to the likes of Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca, but once you've caught up on those, we've assembled a list of some of the best contemporary independent sci-fi comics on the stands.
For the past few months, Shawn Aldridge and Scott Godlewski's The Dark And Bloody has been quietly flying under the radar, so if you've missed out, here's the basics: Iris Gentry is a veteran of the Iraq War who came home to Kentucky after his service to a wife, son, and a thriving business selling moonshine out of his back yard to the thirsty hillbilllies in a dry county. Unfortunately, he brought back a few things with him: Bad memories of the war, a secret about something he did overseas, and, perhaps most importantly, a weird crow monster that wants to kill and possibly eat him by using said hillbillies as its zombie proxies.
As you might expect, that last one has been slowly moving toward the center stage over the past few issues, and since last issue ended with Iris shooting his former pals in the face, he's starting #3 in a whole heap of trouble. Check out a preview below!
Scott Godlewski is one of the artists on Kurt Busiek and Daryl Gregory's Dracula: The Company of Monsters, but he also has a flair for the pulp that goes beyond horror. After all, he's one of the creators behind Mysterious Adventure Magazine, an action comics anthology that pays tribute to the pulp comics of old. Even his fanart consists of action-packed portraits of his favorite battle-ready characters.
