Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Storm_1_CoverWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Top Pick: Storm #1 (Marvel) – Thief. Goddess. Headmistress. Queen. The X-Man called Storm has always defied a single title. And her desire to better the world has never been limited to only her own kind. On a mission to foster goodwill and safeguard the mutant race’s continued existence in her own way, Storm will travel the globe, confronting man and mutant, god and monster and everything in-between. She will overthrow tyrants, quell tsunamis and strive to see her dream for the world realized. She is Storm, a hero like no other….and the skies will tremble at the sight of their namesake.

The character has never had an ongoing series, it’s about time! Marvel continues to expand the diversity of the characters fronting their comics, and with this, there’s not a better choice of a character to do it with.

Afterlife With Archie #6 (Archie Comics) – Archie’s horror series picks up after a little bit of a break. One of the best surprises of the year!

Letter 44 #8 (Oni Press) – Six months into the presidency, President Blades has deployed sci-fi superweapons to end wars in the Middle East, opening him to attacks from all sides, including a Congressman once romantically linked with the First Lady. Meanwhile, in space, as construction on the alien Chandelier is finally completed, the crew of the Clarke will truly understand what they’re facing.

Ragnarok #1 (IDW Publishing) – Walter Simonson is known for his fantasy, especially his work on Thor. Some think it was a definitive take on the character. He returns to that genre with a new series from IDW.

The Shadow Hero (First Second) – In the comics boom of the 1940s, a  legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity… The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero.

The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in Shadow Hero, a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle.

Skullkickers #29 (Image Comics) – Consistently one of the most entertaining comics on the market from the uber-talented Jim Zub.

Supreme: Blue Rose #1 (Image Comics) -Warren Ellis reintroduces the central image comics character. Should be interesting.

Transformers Vs. G.I. Joe #1 (IDW Publishing) – The two properties collide harking back to the classic 80s comics.

Trees #3 (Image Comics) – Another series from Warren Ellis explores mysterious pillars that have cropped up around the world. What do these alien artifacts mean or want?

Winterworld #2 (IDW Publishing) – Chuck Dixon’s cool comic that looks at survival in a bleak winter world. Think Snowpiercer, but outside the train.

Now, the publisher is poised to make headlines again with some of the biggest news about new original work since Frank Miller brought Sin City to the pages of Dark Horse Presents!
