Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Secret_Wars_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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Brett

Top Pick: Secret Wars #1 (Marvel) – Possibly the biggest event ever for the company starts here. It’ll reshape the Marvel Universe and here’s hoping it exceeds my expectations, which are admittedly low. Recent big events have been let downs. I’m crossing my fingers this one is the exception.

Afterlife with Archie #8 (Archie Comics) – Each issue entertain. And I still can’t believe I’m so hooked on an Archie comic. It’s fantastic horror, and the art is as solid as the writing.

Dead Drop #1 (Valiant) – Ales Kot puts together this series of connected stories featuring a big threat to the Valiant universe.

Descender #3 (Image) – A beautiful story about an android in a futuristic world. There’s an almost fairytale feel to it all. Not too late to start reading.

Nutmeg #2 (Action Lab Entertainment) – The first issue was absolutely fantastic. Two girls must deal with the popular girl in school. Yes, the comic is that simple.

 

Edward

Top Pick: Secret Wars #1 (Marvel)  – Marvel’s big crossover kicks off here.  Expect some of the ordinary and some of the new for this rebooted story.

Inhuman Annual #1 (Marvel) – The Inhumans have been picking up momentum for a while now at Marvel.  The Annual should work well to help keep that momentum going.

Swords of Sorrows #1 (Dynamite) – A combination of all the female superheroes from Dynamite should be interesting, even if the story sounds a little ordinary.

Thief of Thieves #28 (Skybound/Image Comics) – Is it payback time for the eponymous thief of thieves?  Cohen will return to challenge him.

The Wicked and The Divine #10 (Image Comics) – The Pantheon goes through their version of Ragnarok.

Aliens & Vampirella Come Together Courtesy of Dynamite and Dark Horse

Aliens_logoDynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the upcoming 2015 crossover, Aliens / Vampirella, pitting the iconic horror heroine against the Xenomorphs popularized in eight feature films and numerous Dark Horse Comics series. Written by Corinna Bechko, the sci-fi horror crossover marks the first time that the two comic book universes collide.

Vampirella is a raven-haired heroine who remains, even after 45 years of publication, one of the comic industry’s leading ladies, due in no small part to Dynamite Entertainment’s stewardship of the character. Since Vampirella’s very healthy resurgence in 2010, Dynamite has published two volumes of a monthly series, several miniseries and one-shot specials, and crossovers with multimedia brands and comic book peers. The Vampirella franchise is a haven for writers and artists with a penchant for the macabre.

For over twenty-five years, Dark Horse Comics has been the comic book home to the Aliens franchise, expanding upon the universe of terror first introduced in the 1979 Ridley Scott-helmed sci-fi/horror masterpiece. Featuring the nightmarish extraterrestrials as imagined by H. R. Giger, the Dark Horse comics have enjoyed unprecedented success in both the hobby and mass markets. Throughout the years, the Xenomorphs have interacted with many staples of the comic book industry, including Batman, Predator, Terminator, Judge Dredd, Superman, and Green Lantern.

Aliens / Vampirella will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ Previews catalog and will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

Vampirella/Army of Darkness Pits Ash, the Chosen One, Against the Horror Heroine

Dynamite Entertainment has announced the July release of Vampirella/Army of Darkness #1, the first issue in a four-issue miniseries that sets Ash Williams, the hard-luck hero of the Army of Darkness franchise, against the classic horror hostess-turned-heroine Vampirella, for the first time in comic history. Written by Mark Rahner and featuring artwork by Jethro Morales, the first issue will be offered with multiple collectible covers by industry heavyweights Tim Seeley and Jae Lee, plus a “Cute” variant by Tony Fleecs exclusively available to subscription customers.

The events of Vampirella/Army of Darkness take place during Ash Williams’ time trapped in the England of 1300 A.D. When the terrified, primitive screwheads approach the Chosen One with tales of a horrific flying Deadite — one similar to the one he blasted out of the air when first arrived, but much deadlier — Ash sets out with his boomstick and chainsaw to protect his adopted people. At the same time, a raven-haired temptress wants to give him some sugar… as his last meal!

Vampirella / Army of Darkness #1 will be released in July and available for purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
