Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

bigtrouble_01_coveraWednesdays 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: Big Trouble in Little China #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Jack Burton is back…. in comic form! Based on the cult movie, Eric Powell and John Carpenter are bringing us more adventures, something I’ve wanted for a long time.

Afterlife With Archive Vol. 1: Escape From Riverdale (Archie Comics) – Talk about a fantastic series. If you missed the individual issues, you can now catch them all in this handy trade. Archie took a chance when it decided to make a mature Archie comic featuring zombies. But, after reading the first issue any doubts were washed away. One of our favorite series.

Caliban #3 (Avatar Press) – Garth Ennis does horror in space. Creepy, and fun…. in a weird way.

Nailbiter #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue left us wanting more. This series looks into why so many serial killers originate from one town, and why the person investigating that question has gone missing.

Quantum & Woody #11 (Valiant Entertainment) – One of the funniest, and most entertaining, super hero comics on the market.

Revelations #6 (BOOM! Studios) – It’s murder at the Vatican in this detective story. This issue wraps it all up and we have a better idea who committed the murder.

Rise of the Magi #1 (Top Cow) – A new series from Top Cow. The look is awesome and concept very cool.

Super Ego HC (Magnetic Press) – What’s it like to be the shrink to the heroes?

Superior Foes of Spider-Man #12 (Marvel) – One of Marvel’s best comics. This one follows Spider-Mans C list villains. Every issue has been fantastic.

The Wake #9 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – The second volume jumped ahead a few years, but is no less awesome. From Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy, welcome to this very different world.
