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: Rocket Raccoon #1 (Marvel) – You don’t need to be a diehard Guardians fan to know a gun toting raccoon would be a fan favorite character. This run looks amazing and hilarious.
Black Widow #8 (Marvel) – Nathan Edmondson and Phil Noto’s exceptional series continues with the timely character introduction of the Winter Soldier. When are these two not good together?
Caliban #4 (Avatar Press) – A creepy sci-fi series that’s solid horror entertainment. The setting and situations are so solid, and where this series goes, I have no idea.
Lazarus #9 (Image Comics) – The series is a fantastic look at a dystopian future where families rule the people like lords and serfs.
Moon Knight #5 (Marvel) – Each issue is good enough to stand by itself. Spector’s multiple personalities makes being a superhero detective devilishly entertaining.
Nailbiter #3 (Image Comics) – Why does one town create so many serial killers? A solid detective thriller.
RoboCop #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Writer Joshua Williamson picks up in the time and place where the cult movie left off. Fighting crime and corruption hasn’t looked this good since Judge Dredd.
Snowpiercer (Titan Books) – The acclaimed graphic novel turned movie has all of humanity on a train that can’t stop, divided by class.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Echoes #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The hit video game comes to comics, which should translate all the action nicely.
The Woods #3 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! has been on a role lately, and this series takes a high school and transplants it to an alien world. We discover what’s going on as they do, in this entertaining read.
