Wednesdays 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.
Pick of the Week: The Bunker #6 (Oni Press) – He came from the future to save the world, but, is the only way to save it to destroy it? Young and Old Grady meet, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Joshua Hale Fialkov and Joe Infurnari’s series will be at the top of numerous “best of” lists when this year is up.
Archer & Armstrong #24 (Valiant) – Valiant has the best universe out there, and what they’ve put together has been amazing, what a cohesive comic universe should be. Archer & Armstrong is an awesome example of their series, mixing humor and action with every issue.
Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers #2 (Dynamite) – Joe Casey and Nathan Fox are continuing their run on one of Jack Kirby‘s greatest creations, Captain Victory! The first issue exceeded my expectations, to the point we wanted to see what happened next. Bring on issue two!
Copperhead #1 (Image) – Westerns are a genre that are hit and miss in comics (and in general). This new series mixes in some sci-fi, in an extra long first issue for the regular price.
Death of Wolverine #2 (Marvel) – The first issue blew us away. Our cynicism was prepared for a cash in, but the writing of Charles Soule and art of Steve McNiven is an amazing combo for this fitting send-off.
Edge of Spider-Verse #1 (Marvel) – A Spider-Man centric event brings together wall crawlers from around the multiverse to deal with a killer who is hunting them down.
Prometheus: Fire and Stone #1 (Dark Horse) – Dark Horse is relaunching the Alien/Predator/Prometheus universe in comics. This series promises to bridge the cap between Prometheus and Alien, and hopefully right some of the wrongs from the movie. No matter, we want more Alien!
Stumptown Vol. 3 #1 (Oni Press) – Greg Rucka‘s fan favorite private eye is back, and now it’s an ongoing series! If you haven’t read the first two volumes of the series, you’re still good to pick up this one. The detective Dex has to get to the bottom of some violence before a heated rivalry transforms into war.
Wild’s End #1 (BOOM! Studios) – When a rural English community of the 1930s is the victim of an alien invasion, the residents’ lives are upended by the harsh realities of life-and-death violence. Led by the town’s outsider and retired war veteran, they will have to rally together to uncover the secret of their invaders and ultimately fight back. Writer Dan Abnett does War of the Worlds!
The Walking Dead #131 (Skybound/Image) – Did you read the last issue!? That ending alone is the reason this issue winds up on the list. What the hell is going to happen next?
