Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!
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.
Top Pick: Trees #1 (Image Comics) – Ten years after they landed. All over the world. And they did nothing, standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if there were no-one here and nothing under foot. Ten years since we learned that there is intelligent life in the universe, but that they did not recognize us as intelligent or alive. Beginning a new science fiction series by Warren Ellis and Jason Howard.
Black Science Vol. 1: Hot to Fall Forever (Image Comics) – Collecting the first six issues of the series, Black Science is a trippy sci-fi filled adventure series that’s one of the most exciting on the market.
Chew/Revival #1 (Image Comics) – The two comic series come together for a fun story that shows it from both series’ perspectives. It shouldn’t work, but it does!
Doctor Spektor #1 (Dynamite) – Another Gold Key release from Dynamite, this one has Mark Waid writing!
The Fuse #4 (Image Comics) – Take a detective series and put it on a space station. So good.
Ms. Marvel #4 (Marvel) – The Marvel series has been a breath of fresh air, introducing us to a new heroine, diverse cast, and some amazing art.
The Midas Flesh #6 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – This series is out of this world, but a fun cast, action packed story, and awesome art as well. One of our favorites!
Mind MGMT #22 (Dark Horse) – One of the best comics on the market. Matt Kindt‘s series is moving along and shows what can be done with the long game when it comes to storytelling. So many layers, so freaking good.
Skullkickers #27 (Image Comics) – Comics can be fun and writer Jim Zub‘s off the rails fantasy adventure is a perfect example of that.
Star Wars: Rebel Heist #2 (Dark Horse) – Another Matt Kindt entry. The talented writer has been knocking it out of the park when it comes to this series so far.
